Biographical/Historical Note

Ralph Owen Brewster was born in Dexter, Maine, in 1888. He was graduated from Bowdoin College in 1909 (summa cum laude; Phi Beta Kappa Society). He worked briefly (1909-1910) as the principal of Castine High School, then went on to earn an L.L.B. from Harvard University in 1913. From 1914 to 1925 he was a partner in the Portland, Maine, law firm of Chapman and Brewster. He entered politics and won election to the lower house of the Maine legislature in 1916. In 1917 he resigned from the House and entered the U.S. Army, rising to the rank of Captain by 1918. After the signing of the armistice Brewster returned to Maine, was reelected to the Maine House of Representatives, and in 1922 was elected to the state Senate. He was elected governor in 1924 and reelected in 1926, but was defeated in the primary for a third term. He was twice defeated for the Republican nomination as candidate for the U.S. Senate and subsequently moved from Portland to Dexter in order to run for the Congressional seat from the Third District. He lost the election in 1932, but won in 1934, serving three terms in the House of Representatives. He worked on legislation to provide old-age pensions; he also opposed President Roosevelt's New Deal. In 1940 he won a U.S. Senate seat, serving from 1941-1952. Brewster sat on several Senate committees, notably the Special Senate Committee to Investigate the National Defense Program (the Truman Committee), and the Joint Committee to Investigate the Pearl Harbor Attack. He lost his Senate seat in the 1952 primary and retired, maintaining an active interest in many conservative organizations. Brewster married the former Dorothy Foss in 1913, and they had two sons. Ralph Owen Brewster died of cancer in 1961.


Scope and Content

Records are largely office files concerning contemporary issues, events and local and national political and legislative initiatives; and general office correspondence spanning the years 1923-1961. Other categories of material include published and unpublished reports and records of legislative initiatives; nomination papers and campaign files from numerous primary and election campaigns; newspaper clippings from all phases of his career; and recordings of some speeches. Included also is a collection of photographs: most are official, and concern his Senatorial career.

While governor of Maine, Brewster promoted Maine's industry, products and resources; and was chairman of the United States Governors' Conference from 1925-1927. Brewster corresponded with many well-known state and national figures of the time, including Harry Truman, Percival Baxter, Robert A. Taft, Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., James M. Mead; and was contemporary with Margaret Chase Smith, Richard Nixon and Joseph McCarthy. He served on several important congressional committees. Many of his activities involved investigation of the U.S. armed forces as a part of the Truman Committee, and on his own committee. Other significant issues that held Brewster's interest were interstate commerce, foreign oil reserves, Pearl Harbor, Republican Party issues, the Maine potato industry, the Port of Portland, and old-age pensions. In 1943 Brewster and Senators Russell of Georgia, Chandler of Kentucky, Lodge of Massachusetts, and Mead of New York travelled to the war areas to gather information on numerous wartime subjects including: international transportation, foreign landing facilities, distribution of supplies, state of machinery received from the U.S., and the function of the Office of War.

 M200.02 Governor's papers, 1924-1929   46.0 linear feet

Series Description:

This group of files constitutes the bulk of the material created during Brewster's gubernatorial career (1924-29). The governor's office kept files under several different headings: general files for daily office use, political appointment files, publicity files, and campaign and primary files. These were continually updated and interfiled during the five years that Brewster spent campaigning for and serving as governor. He collected and used various types of reference materials: statistics, reports, listings, background reading material, newspaper clippings and other resources.

This material represents Brewster's efforts to support and increase the economic prosperity of Maine. The Interstate Commerce Commission and Maine State Highway Commission cooperated to achieve major trade and industry developments during this time. The Maine State Prison system, fish and game agencies, and the state shipping industry also benefitted from Governor Brewster's efforts. In addition, he was an active participant and organizer in the yearly governor's conferences, which spotlighted both Governor Brewster and the state.

Occasional references to the Ku Klux Klan are present in early correspondence. Although there was no direct evidence, common sentiment existed that Brewster was a member. An early letter from Percival Baxter, the previous governor, acknowledges this sentiment and urges Brewster to distance himself from the organization.

 M200.02.01 Governor's papers : general files, 1924-1929, [A-Gov]   7.0 linear feet

Subseries Description:

This group of general office files constitutes the bulk of the information used day-to-day during the governor's administration; the same group was updated and interfiled during the four years spanning two terms (1924-28). Major themes of the administration include work of the Maine State Highway Commission (including dedication of the Piscataqua Memorial Bridge), Interstate Commerce Commission, work with the Maine State Prison (about which he requested a hearing in 1928 to investigate suspected improprieties), fish and game agencies, Maine shipping industry, and Brewster's participation in national Governor's conferences.

One well publicized event of the administration was the return of Confederate Civil War flags to the southern states from which they were captured.

Arrangement:

Arranged alphabetically by subject.

 M200.02.04 Governor's papers : campaign and primary files, 1924-1929, [chronological files, 1924-1928]   4.5 linear feet

Subseries Description:

These files pertain to Brewster's election and primary campaigns from 1924 until 1928. They contain correspondence from 1924-1929, lists and working files arranged in two ways: first a group of chronological subject files, then a large group of correspondence arranged by name of town in which correspondent lived. Correspondents were campaign contacts, workers and organizers in most Maine towns, as well as contacts in other states, whose utility was no doubt vital during Brewster's campaigns for national office starting in the early 1930's. The attention to detail and personal contact is a mark of his administration's superior organizational skills.

Arrangement:

Arranged chronologically.

 M200.05 U.S. Senate, 1941-1953   52.75 linear feet

Series Description:

Records include subject and personal files, correspondence with veterans and others, political and campaign information, reports, speeches, newspaper and magazine articles, copies of Senate reports and hearings, photographs, and other records of events. The preponderance of files reflect the later part of Brewster's service, 1945-52, indicating that his office updated files regularly. Some earlier files do exist (1941-43), including many records concerning the 1943 investigating trip made by members of the Senate Committee to Investigate the Armed Forces. Other subject files relate mostly to important committee work. The most notable events of the time involved World War II and its economic, political, and social effects. Worldwide petroleum deposits were carefully studied, with special consideration given to foreign relations with countries where the deposits were located. Brewster's participation in the Truman Committee and its investigation of the armed services was perhaps his biggest contribution. Brewster maintained a strong relationship with President Harry Truman, despite their different political views.

After the war, Brewster initiated an investigation of wartime contracts awarded to the Hughes Aircraft Company. His investigation of Howard Hughes' activities did not result in legal action.

Restructuring of the political landscape was under way: the Republican Party recovered from its losses during the depression, and redefined itself as the watchdog against Socialism and Communism. Brewster supported the candidacy of Richard Nixon and made several speeches on his behalf; he later came under investigation for a camouflaged donation of $5,000 to Nixon's senate campaign in 1950. Brewster was allied with Senator Joseph McCarthy, who later (in 1954) nominated Brewster as the counsel to the Senate Government Operations Committee (more information in The Post-Senate Years series).

This series also contains a strong representation of work on important initiatives for the State of Maine: the Passamaquoddy Tidal Power Project (subject of a personal letter from President Harry Truman); oversight of the development of the potato industry, and of the Port of Portland as a major international port.

General Note:

Brewster served on the following committees between 1941 and 1952 (date of first year of service shown):

Claims (1941) Commerce (1941) Library (1941) Naval Affairs (1941) Public Buildings and Grounds (1941) Special Committee to Investigate Contracts Under the National Defense Program (1941) Territories and Insular Affairs (1943) Finance (1944) Special Committee to Investigate Petroleum Resources (1944) Interstate and Foreign Commerce (1947) (Chairman) Special Committee to Investigate the National Defense Program (1947) Foreign Relations (1952)

 M200.05.01 U.S. Senate : subject files, 1941-1952   6.5 linear feet

Subseries Description:

Contains Senate office subject files spanning the whole of Brewster's Senate career, from 1941-52. Files concern contemporary legislative issues and investigations, people, and committee operations: the Brewster Committee, the Mead Committee, the Truman Committee, and the Committee to Investigate the Bombing of Pearl Harbor. Many War Office and other government photographs relating to these activities (notably the Truman Committee and the Pearl Harbor investigation) can be found in the series: Photographs, 1916-60. Some speeches are filed in this series, under the heading 'speeches'.

Arrangement:

Arranged alphabetically by heading, then by subheading, then chronologically.

General Note:

Brewster's office grouped some files under a coded or named heading (e.g. "M102" indicated Maine-related files). Where these codes or larger headings are found, material is titled with the code or heading (e.g. "Government papers") and filed in the alphabetical placement of that heading. Therefore, M102-headed files can be found at the beginning of the M section. Files regarding a subject like the Port of Portland will be found in the M102 section under the P's. These groups are then alphabetized by the subheadings, then filed chronologically under subheadings.

 M200.06 Post-Senate years, 1953-1962   12.75 linear feet

Series Description:

Brewster maintained an active participation in many committees and programs after his primary defeat for the Senate seat in 1952. Records in this group, which reflect a return of focus to problems and growth issues in the State of Maine, still indicate a keen interest in national affairs and Republican Party politics. Brewster maintained close contact with his Washington colleagues and sought to serve in non-elective capacities. In 1953 he was appointed to serve on the International Joint Commission on the U.S. and Canada. He was nominated to serve as legal counsel to the Senate Government Operations Committee by Senator Joseph McCarthy in 1954, but his nomination was unanimously opposed by Democrats serving on the committee, among whom was Senator John F. Kennedy. Brewster later brought a libel lawsuit against the Herald Traveler Corp., alleging that an article published by the Boston Herald Traveler in 1954, labelling Brewster as a "wiretapper", damaged his reputation and caused the committee to scuttle the nomination. Senator Kennedy testified at the court hearing of the case that he was not influenced by the article.

 M200.06.01 Post-Senate years : general files, 1953-1962 [Acheson, Dean - Lemus, Riemzi B. (Race Problem)]   6.0 linear feet

Subseries Description:

Contains correspondence, clippings, reports, speeches, notes, and other records from 1949 through 1962, relating to the issues that interested Brewster after he left the Senate. His continued interest in national affairs is reflected in files concerning: transportation industries such as railroads and aviation, Republican politics (especially the election of 1960), communism (including McCarthy and the House investigation, the admission of China to the United Nations and labor unions), economics and the federal economy, and national defense. A renewed concentration on Maine can be seen in files on the state's government, economic development, and politics. There are also major files on Americans for Constitutional Action, Bowdoin College, the town of Dexter, the "Negro Vote", federal committees and commissions on which he had hoped to serve, and relating to major figures such as Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Joseph McCarthy, Margaret Chase Smith and Douglas MacArthur.
