COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

The Charles S. Murphy Files mostly relate to Murphy’s service as Administrative Assistant and Special Counsel to President Harry S. Truman from 1947-1953. In 1934, Murphy began twelve years of service in the Office of Legislative Counsel of the U. S. Senate during which time he assisted Senator Truman with drafting legislation. In 1947, Murphy joined the White House staff where he worked closely with Clark Clifford, Special Counsel to President Truman. As an administrative aide, Murphy was involved in drafting messages, speeches and legislation. When Clark Clifford retired in 1950, Murphy was promoted to Special Counsel to the President and became Truman’s chief speech writer.

The Murphy files are part of the Staff Member and Office Files of the Harry S. Truman Papers, which Truman donated to the U.S. government through his will. The collection consists of two series: the Presidential Speech File and the Correspondence and General File.

The Presidential Speech File consists of correspondence, typed and handwritten drafts of speeches, itineraries, memoranda, newspaper clippings and press releases relating to speeches given by President Harry S. Truman. The documents relate to the annual State of the Union addresses, speeches from Truman’s 1948 Presidential campaign run, 1952 presidential campaign speeches when Truman was campaigning for Adlai Stevenson, messages to Congress, veto messages, Christmas tree lighting ceremonies, and Truman’s Farewell Address. Most of the 1948 presidential campaign speeches were provided by Bill Batt, the Research Director for the Democratic National Committee. Specific speech topics in the series include the death of President Roosevelt, NATO, the United Nations, foreign aid, the Japanese Peace Treaty, the Korean War, Jefferson-Jackson Day, Russia, inflation, the economy, Native Americans, monopolies, education, transportation, fiscal policy, states rights, the Tennessee Valley Authority, communism vs. democracy, and the 1952 steel strike. Although the earliest speech in the series is dated 1948, background material in the series dates from 1945.

The Correspondence and General File consists of correspondence, drafts of legislation, handwritten notes, memoranda, newspaper clippings, press releases and drafts, reports, and speeches and speech drafts pertaining to Alaska, China, civil rights, corruption in the government, Eisenhower administration briefings, foreign trade, India, Korea, the Marshall Plan, Mexico, the Middle East, the Missouri River Basin Commission, the Mutual Security Program, the National Advisory Board on Mobilization Policy, natural resources, Point IV, the St. Lawrence Seaway, wages, loyalty and the 1952 Steel Strike.

More information about Murphy can be found at the Truman Library in the papers of Charles S. Murphy, the oral history interview of Charles S. Murphy, and the Papers of Harry S. Truman (President’s Secretary’s Files, Official File 1186, President’s Personal File 952 and the Post-Presidential Papers).
