expand/collapse Expand/collapse Collection Overview

Size 7.0 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 2,700 items)
Abstract Josephus Daniels was the owner and editor of the Raleigh News and Observer; secretary of the Navy in the administration of Woodrow Wilson, 1913-1921; and U.S. ambassador to Mexico in the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933-1941. The collection includes correspondence, writings, diaries, and other materials. Most correspondence relates to Daniels's activities as secretary of the Navy and ambassador to Mexico rather than to his personal life or to his work as owner and editor of the Raleigh, N.C., News and Observer . Also included are letters to his mother; letters, 1887-1889; to his future wife, Adelaide Worth Bagley; a file of "important letters"--Wilson, Bryan, Watterson, Walter Hines Page, and others; and selected excerpts of letters, probably arranged by Daniels's son, Jonathan Daniels. Writings include a typescript of the first three volumes of Daniels's autobiography, genealogies of the Daniels and Seabrook families, and drafts of speeches, editorials, and books. The diary series contains a notebook about military bases and supplies, 1917-1918; and diaries, 1913-1921, 1933, and 1940-1941. Other material includes a calendar Daniels kept as ambassador to Mexico, January 1937-August 1939; clippings of articles about Daniels; and correspondence and writings of Adelaide Worth Bagley Daniels. Some slight material relates to Franklin D. Roosevelt.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Newspaper editor, lawyer, Southern liberal, and politician who never ran for office, Josephus Daniels was born in Washington, N.C., in 1862. He started his career as newspaper editor in 1880 at the Wilson Advance in Wilson, N.C. After attending the University of North Carolina, Daniels passed the state bar examinations in 1885, but never actually practiced law. In 1891, he assumed editorial control of the Raleigh News and Observer.

An ardent, life long Democrat, Daniels was appointed Democratic national committeeman from North Carolina in 1896 and held that post until 1916. Woodrow Wilson appointed him secretary of the Navy in 1912. Daniels was one of four cabinet members who served throughout Wilson's two terms. In 1921, Daniels returned to the Raleigh News and Observer. He supported Franklin D. Roosevelt in the election of 1932. Roosevelt, who had served as assistant secretary of the Navy under Daniels from 1913 to 1921, always called his former boss "chief," and, in 1933, appointed him ambassador to Mexico. Daniels helped to implement Roosevelt's good neighbor policy for eight years, resigning in 1941 to resume his editorial duties in Raleigh. He continued to write editorials for the News and Observer almost until his death in 1948.

A devoted family man throughout his life, Daniels married Adelaide Worth Bagley (1869-1943) in 1888. They had six children. Two daughters died in infancy. Four sons survived: Josephus (1894-1964), Worth Bagley (born 1899), Jonathan Worth (1902-1981), and Frank Arthur (1904-1986). For more information see the Dictionary of North Carolina Biography, edited by William S. Powell. See also Subseries 2.1.
