Abstract Herbert Covington Bonner, of Washington, N.C., was a member of the United StatesHouse of Representatives from 1940 until his death in 1965. He was chairman of the House Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee, 1955-1965, and chairman, 1951-1955, of the Intergovernmental Relations Subcommittee ("watchdog committee") of the Expenditures in the Executive Departments Committee, which made changes designed to eliminate waste in the handling of war surplus material and in military supply procurement. The papers consist of Bonner's office files, dating from November 1940, when he succeeded Lindsay C. Warren as representative from the First North Carolina District, which included, at one time or another, 14 counties of the northeastern corner of the state. In addition to the main chronological series, there are subject- and format-based series. The Rivers and Harbors series, 1940-1965, concerns federally-funded projects, such as channel and harbor improvements, erosion problems, dredging, etc., and the operation of the Dismal Swamp Canal. The Hoover Commission series, January-October 1950, concerns the proposed reorganization of the government that came out of the Commission on Organization of the Executive Branch of the Government. The Bombing Ranges series, 1959-1965, concerns objections to having a weapons range or ranges in northeastern North Carolina. The Political series, 1959-1965, concerns the mechanics of Democratic Party organization and election campaigns. The Community Public Works Programs series, 1962-1965, concerns local public works projects that received federal funds. The National Seashore Park series, 1937-1965, concerns the establishment of a national park that spanned Bodie, Hatteras, and Ocracoke islands, N.C. Also included are private bills, with related papers attached; scrapbooks, 1940-1965; speeches, 1940-1964; photographs, and photocopies of presidential memorabilia, some relating to the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Herbert Covington Bonner was born in Washington, N.C., the son of Hannah Selby Hare and Macon Herbert Bonner, both from families that had long lived in the area. He studied at Warrenton Academy from 1906 to 1909 and traveled through the small towns of North Carolina as a snuff salesman. In World War I, Bonner served as a sergeant in the 322nd Infantry, 81st Division.

Bonner worked as aide to his neighbor Lindsay C. Warren when Warren was elected to the House of Representatives. In 1940, after Warren was named comptroller-general of the United States, Bonner was elected as a Democrat to the congressional seat representing North Carolina's First District.

Bonner served in the House for nearly 25 years until his death from cancer in 1965. His district included, at one time or another, 14 counties in the northeastern corner of the state. He was constant in seeking federal appropriations and jobs for the area. He was chairman of the House Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee from 1955; and for four years, 1951-1955, served as chairman of the Intergovernmental Relations Subcommittee ("watchdog committee") of the Expenditures in the Executive Departments Committee, which made changes designed to eliminate waste in the handling of war surplus material and in military supply procurement. Bonner's seat was seriously challenged only twice: in 1946 by Robert Lee Humber and in 1960 by Walter Jones. While not an innovator, Bonner backed such projects as establishment of Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the social programs of the Roosevelt and Kennedy administrations.

Herbert Bonner married Eva Hassell Hackney, also of Washington, N.C. For Eva Hassell Hackney's papers, see the Hassell Family Papers (#4942).

About 3,000 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

This series concerns the pouring of millions of dollars of Federal funds into specific Rivers and Harbors projects in the First Congressional District of North Carolina. The District, as of 1958, included Beaufort, Camden, Currituck, Hertford, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell, and Washington counties. In the 1940s it also included Dare, Chowan, Gates, Martin, and Pitt.

A mimeographed document (4 p.) outlines "the Procedure involving conception, authorization, and ultimate construction of Corps of Engineers' River and Harbor Floor Control Projects," showing 17 steps. These steps may involve a request from local citizens to their representative or senator, the Public Works Committee of Senate or House or an appropriate subcommittee, the Board of Engineers, local public hearings, the chief of Engineers and the secretary of the Army, the director of the Bureau of the Budget, the House Committee on Appropriations, and others.

Bonner's file includes correspondence with concerned individual constituents, as well as with the Coast Guard, Naval Operations, the State Stream Sanitation Committee, the State Board of Mental Health, the N.C. Department of Water Resources, local and regional committees, the Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee of Congress, the U.S. Departments of Agriculture (Flood Control), Interior, Health, Education, and Welfare, and others in connection with projects in the First District. In many cases, Bonner's efforts continued for many years on a particular project. In addition to correspondence, there are reports, maps, pictures, bulletins, and other items.

Projects include: channe1 and harbor improvements, removal of obstructions, erosion problems, saline intrusion in fresh waters, drainage, dredging, docks and piers, stream pollution, disaster areas, ferry operations, regulation of speed on waterways, operation of the Dismal Swamp Canal, fishing piers, mosquito control, and almost anything connected with water.

The National Seashore Park on the coast of North Carolina was formally established 12 January 1953, after two decades or more of planning, effort, and preliminary steps. The formal dedication of the Cape Hatteras National Park took place on 24 April 1958. The area involved includes the Bodie-Hatteras-Ocracoke chain of islands (the outer banks of Dare and Hyde counties).

This series also includes papers concerning the bridging of Oregon Inlet between Bodie and Hatteras islands. The completed span was dedicated 2 May 1964, as the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge.

In addition, this series contains materials about various public works and services developed in the area of the park, which are similar to papers in the Rivers and Harbors series and may overlap with them. Materials concern projects at Oregon Inlet, Rodanthe, Avon, Buxton, Hatteras Inlet, Silver Lake Bay and docks on Ocracoke.

Note that there may be similar papers in the main chronological series, especially for 1949, 1950, 1951, and 1960.

The boundaries of the park were designated on 27 October 1952, and the Park formally established on 12 January 1953. In 1955, there is correspondence about ferry service across Oregon Inlet, the Wright Brothers Memorial, Silver Lake docks on Ocracoke Island, and an invitation to President Dwight Eisenhower to attend the outdoor drama, The Lost Colony.

1956: More about projects and developments that would benefit the park-Ocracoke Island projects, Oregon Inlet ferry and Fishing Center, Rodanthe pier.

1959: Correspondence about ferry service, Mann's Harbor, Oregon Inlet, Rollinson Channel, and Hatteras airstrip. Correspondence with Ocracoke Civic Club about interests of the area.

1961: Among the topics were the question of hunting in the park area on Ocracoke Island; questions of territory ("Core Banks") from Ocracoke Inlet to Cape Lookout; Wright Brothers Visitors Center; Fort Raleigh on Roanoke Island; the Department of Interior's proposal to dispose of about eight acres of land acquired for, but not included in, the park; requests for use of Federal government land for airstrip on Ocracoke, Salvation Army solicitors, W. H. Jennett's oyster bed in Long Creek, Frazer Peel's campsite, commercial fish buyers, stabilization of sand dunes; complaints about confiscation of private property without notice or explanation by the government; and financial arrangements (by private bill) for the Oregon Inlet Bridge, part to be paid by Park Service of Department of Interior, upkeep by the N.C. Highway Department.

Also discussed are problems of commercial fishermen, individual property, sand fixation, and vehicle ramps for beach access. The Bonner Bridge was opened for use in November 1963, and formally dedicated on 2 May 1964.
