expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

William McWhorter Cochrane, only son of William Daniel Cochrane and Nancy Veazy Fillingim Cochrane, was born in Newton, N.C., on 6 March 1917. In his youth, he was active in the Boy Scouts of America. He was graduated from Newton-Conover High School in May 1933. He enrolled at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in the fall of 1934, but left after three years to return to Newton to earn money. He then returned to Chapel Hill, earning his A.B. in journalism in 1939, and his LL.B. in 1941. Cochrane was very active in campus affairs. He was inducted into the Order of the Golden Fleece in 1941, he managed a dormitory, he was elected speaker of the student government, and he was the director of the Graham Memorial Student Union in 1941 and 1942. While he was a law student, Cochrane also worked part time for the Institute of Government under the direction of Albert Coates. He joined the Institute full time as the Assistant Director upon his graduation. It was during this time that Cochrane met Shirley Graves, a Chapel Hill native and daughter of English professor Thornton Shirley Graves.

In July 1941, Cochrane joined the United States Naval Reserve. He was called to active duty in July 1942 as an apprentice seaman. After his initial training, Cochrane spent much of his time in Miami at the Submarine-Chaser Training School and as the officer in charge of the McAllister Hotel Barracks. In March 1944, he was assigned to the minesweeper U.S.S. Improve, which worked off the Mediterranean coast.

On 3 June 1945, he married Shirley Graves, who was a student at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, Ga. In November 1945, Cochrane, who was then a lieutenant, was released to inactive duty. He remained a member of the Naval Ready Reserve until his retirement in 1977.

Following the war, Cochrane returned to Chapel Hill to work for the Institute of Government, where he oversaw the publication of Popular Government. In 1951, he graduated with his LL.M. from Yale University, and, in 1952, he became an Associate Research Professor of Public Law and Government at the University of North Carolina. In 1954, Cochrane moved to Washington, D.C., to spend a year helping the newly elected Senator W. Kerr Scott get settled, but he remained in the Capitol for more than 40 years serving in various capacities. He was the Executive Secretary and Legal Counsel for Senator Scott until Scott's death in 1957. He then served as the Administrative Assistant to Senator B. Everett Jordan, 1958-1972. Beginning in 1968, Cochrane became active on the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, helping to plan presidential inaugurations for both Democrats and Republicans through 1993. In 1972, following Jordan's defeat, Cochrane was appointed staff director and majority counsel of the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration. He served as the minority staff director, 1980-1986, and as the senior advisor to the Rules Committee, 1987-1994. Cochrane also served as the deputy staff director for the Joint Committee on the Library, 1972-1993. In 1995, the Library of Congress hired Cochrane to serve as an honorary historical consultant.

Although Cochrane labeled himself a "Yellow Dog Democrat," he earned the respect of Democrats and Republicans alike. He had extensive contacts in North Carolina and Washington, D.C., and was known as the person for North Carolinians to go to for jobs in the capitol. He also retained close ties with North Carolina and the University of North Carolina, where he was active in the General Alumni Association, the Board of Visitors, and the North Caroliniana Society. In 1979, Cochrane received the Roll Call Congressional Staff Award for his dedicated service. He also received the Distinguished Alumnus Award for Public Service from the University of North Carolina in 1978 and the North Carolina Award for Public Service in 1992.

William and Shirley Cochrane adopted two sons, William Daniel Cochrane, who was born on 13 January 1953, and Thomas McWhorter Cochrane, who was born on 27 November 1956.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 3. Political Materials, 1917-1998.

About 21,200 items.

Items documenting William M. Cochrane's more than 40-year career in politics. General political materials detail the types of activities that occupied Cochrane on Capitol Hill from the early 1950s to the mid-1990s and chiefly concern Cochrane's work with the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration. Inaugural materials detail Cochrane's activities and responsibilities as executive director of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies.

Other papers relate to Cochrane's work with B. Everett Jordan, 1958-1972; the Joint Committee on the Library, 1974-1995; and the Architect of the Capitol, 1973-1994. Materials also contain information about Cochrane's relationship with Terry Sanford and his vast network of friends and colleagues in North Carolina and Washington, D.C.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 3.2. Inaugural Material, 1917-1997.

About 1,800 items.

Arrangement: chronological by inaugural year.

Materials documenting William M. Cochrane's activities and responsibilities as executive director of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies. Cochrane was primarily involved in orchestrating the 1973 and 1977 inaugurations, but he also assisted with the inaugurations of Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan.

This series contains material related to the Presidential and Vice-Presidential Inaugural ceremonies from 1917 to 1997, the bulk of which pertains to the inaugurations of Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan. Planning and facilities material includes organizational meeting minutes, bids and contracts, information about the construction of the inaugural stands and platforms, and programs of events and activities. Also included is information about expenditures; ticket requests and allocation; printed materials such as automobile passes, tickets, and programs; and invitations for almost every inauguration between 1917 and 1997. Material from the 1973 Inaugural includes notices of planned protests against the Vietnam War. Clippings and records from 1981 document the change in venue from the east front to the west front of the Capitol. There are also photographs, recordings, and a film of Nixon's 1973 ceremony; photographs and a film of Carter's inauguration; photographs and a videotape from both of Reagan's ceremonies; and a videotape of George W. Bush's inauguration. Cochrane speaks about Inaugural procedures and planning on an audiocassette dated November 1980.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 3.3. Joint Congressional Committee on the Library, 1974-1995.

About 1,600 items.

Arrangement: chronological, followed by subject files.

Documents concerning William M. Cochrane's association with the Joint Congressional Committee on the Library, on which he served as staff director, 1972-1994. The Committee's jurisdiction included the management of the Library of Congress, the Botanic Garden, the receipt of gifts to the Library, and the placement of statues and busts and other works of art in the United States Capitol.

This series records Library of Congress procedures and policy legislation over the course of 20 years, including changes to the card catalog and access to the library stacks, administrative and personnel issues, relations with international repositories, and financial information. Records, 1976-1977, document racial and ethnic personnel problems. Material from 1987 relates to the resignation of Librarian of Congress  Daniel Boorstin and the nomination and confirmation of James H. Billington as his successor. Cochrane's file on the Law Library concerns the decision to close that facility in the mid-1980s. These files also document the June 1991 opening of the main reading room, which had been closed for renovations for three years, when Cochrane made the first request for a book. Material related to the accession or loan of Library collections includes the request to loan the Gettysburg Address to the Gettysburg National Military Park in the early 1990s and the 1994 recall of the Federal Theatre Project Collection from George Mason University. Papers from the late 1980s and early 1990s concern the development and maintenance of the Botanic Garden. See also Series 1. Correspondence and Series 3.1. General Political for related material.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 3.7. Contact Files.

File cards, notes, lists, and pocket planners that document Cochrane's widespread network of personal and professional contacts, chiefly in North Carolina and Washington, D.C.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 3.7.1. Index Cards.

Arrangement: boxes are organized according to Cochrane's original arrangement.

Index file cards documenting Cochrane's extensive network of friends, acquaintances, and professional colleagues, 1960s-1990s. Subdivisions include North Carolinians sorted by county, relatives, members of the 1991 UNC Alumni trip to China, students, requests for inaugural tickets, and several runs of miscellaneous North Carolina and non-North Carolina people, all of which are sorted alphabetically. Though some of these cards only provide contact information, the majority contain information about individuals and their relationship to Cochrane, including typed excerpts from correspondence and attached clippings and notes. For the most part, white and blue cards indicate North Carolinians, and pink cards signify non-North Carolinians.

In addition to using these files as an extended address book, Cochrane used the cards to keep track of several activities. One alphabetical run contains a listing of books and calendars that Cochrane sent out in the 1980s, and another, dating from the 1970s contains contact information, dates, dollar amounts, and report numbers.
