Pew, J. Howard (John Howard), 1882-1971. Papers 1902-1971.

Papers 1902-1971.

The J. Howard Pew Papers are primarily concerned with Pew's political activities and philanthropy. Of particular interest are the letters which document Pew's activities in the American Liberty League, the Republican National Committee, and the National Association of Manufacturers. Political files include analysis of 1944 election, strategy for state and local elections and analyses of Democratic senators' voting records (1933-1938). Files on Communism include solicitations for the Russian government in exile and information collected by the National Council for American Education on the political activities of selected college professors during the 1940s and 50s. Presbyterian Church files reflect the split in the church over integration, McCarthyism, and civil liberties. To buttress his campaign for conservativism within the church, Pew also sponsored research on the life of Calvin and Calvinism. There are also files from the National Council of Churches, Grove City College, United Presbyterian Foundation, and the Christian Freedom Foundation. Other files describe Pew's involvement with the Glenmede Trust Company and The Pew Memorial Trust. Files contain copies of applications and document awards made.
