Biography

Carey McWilliams was born December 13, 1905, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, to Jeremiah Newby and Harriet Casley McWilliams. Jeremiah McWilliams was elected to the State Legislature in 1910, and the family moved to Denver. Carey was enrolled in Wolfe Hall Military Academy, and graduated from there in 1921, three months after the death of his father.

McWilliams arrived in California to join his mother and brother in the spring of 1922. He received his J.D. from the University of Southern California in 1927. He passed the California bar and joined the law firm of Black and Hammack, which became Black, Hammack and McWilliams before his departure.

In 1930, McWilliams married Dorothy Hedrick, daughter of an eminent mathematician and UCLA administrator. Their son, Wilson Carey McWilliams, is a professor of political science. In 1941, they were divorced, and he married Iris Dornfield, the author. Their son, Jerry is an authority on the technology of recording equipment.

In 1938, McWilliams was appointed California's Commissioner of Immigration and Housing by Governor Cuthbert Olson. Stunned by the living conditions of migrant workers and by their treatment when they tried to organize labor unions, he became an enemy of the Associated Farmers, the greatest single power bloc in California politics at the time. When Earl Warren was elected governor in 1942, with support of the Associated Farmers, McWilliams was dismissed as Commissioner.

After leaving state government, McWilliams dedicated himself to social and political causes. Although primarily a writer and journalist, he applied his legal skills where he felt them to be appropriate. During the Zoot Suit riots of 1942 and 1943 in Los Angeles, he participated in the fight to free convicted teenagers in the Sleepy Lagoon case. He was also active with the Committee for the Foreign-Born to protect the rights of aliens during World War II.

McWilliams met Freda Kirchwey, editor of The Nation, in 1945. She appointed him contributing editor in 1948 and in 1951 asked him to come to New York to edit a special issue on civil liberties: he never left. After a year as associate editor and three years as editorial director, McWilliams became editor of the magazine in 1955 and retained that post until his retirement in 1975.

Author of more than 20 books, Carey McWilliams wrote in detail on the plight of migrant workers in California, Japanese-American internment during World War II, anti-Semitism and the status regarding several minority groups in America. He often mentioned that writing was his occupation, injustice his preoccupation. In his retirement, McWilliams continued to write and speak out against injustice. He died at University Hospital in Manhattan on June 27, 1980.
