William Bradley Umstead

William Bradley Umstead served North Carolina as a United States representative, a United States senator, and as governor. Prior to his election as the first representative from the newly formed sixth North Carolina district (Durham, Orange, Guilford, and Alamance counties) in 1932, Umstead was a practicing lawyer in Durham, and he continued his legal work during the gaps in his political career. Umstead chose to leave Congress in 1938 after his third term. He returned to practicing law, and served in various Democratic Party posts until his appointment to the United States Senate in 1946 by Governor R. Gregg Cherry to fill the seat of Josiah Bailey, who had died in office. Umstead was defeated in his attempt to succeed himself by J. Melville Broughton in the Democratic primary in 1948. In both houses of Congress, Umstead was an advocate of farmers and the tobacco industry. He was a moderate Democrat, supporting most of Roosevelt's New Deal legislation, but opposing Truman-era civil rights initiatives.

Umstead chose not to run for the Senate in 1950, citing poor health. In 1952 he successfully campaigned for governor as a friend of the farmer and as an opponent of desegregation. He suffered a heart attack on his third day in office and remained in poor health throughout his administration. In 1954 he suffered a second heart attack and died on 7 November 1954 from pneumonia and other complications at Watts Hospital in Durham.

Washburn Family and Washburn Family Stores

Originally from Worcestershire, England, the Washburn family settled in Rutherford County, N.C., in the early 1830s and set up a tavern and inn. After the Civil War, the youngest brother, Reverend Reuben Washburn (1829-1904), took over the family business. He ran it for about 35 years until his sons, Edgar Nollie Washburn (1874-1935) and William Adney Washburn (1868-1931), took over in 1904. By this time, the business had evolved into a dry goods store located in a large wood-framed building on Main Street in Bostic, N.C. The two brothers greatly expanded the family business, building in 1928 a brick store building and opening two other stores, one of which was located at Sunshine, N.C. Known as the Sunshine Cash Store and Service Station, this store was managed for many years by the parents of Merle Davis Umstead, Charles D. Davis (ca. 1880-1936) and Daisy Washburn Davis (1882-1961), sister of E. N. and W. A. Washburn.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Scope and Content

These papers chiefly document the political career of William Bradley Umstead. Also documented, though less thoroughly, are other activities of Umstead and of his wife Merle Davis Umstead, as well as activities of members of her family in Rutherford County, N.C.

Much of the political material in this collection relates to Umstead's 1952 gubernatorial campaign. Material also appears relating to Umstead's United States Senate career and to his Senate campaign, as well as to the years between his Senate term and his election as North Carolina governor. Relatively little appears documenting his terms as a United States representative or his legal career. As is often the case in collections of modern political officeholders, much of this material documents routine, day-to-day activities. It should also be noted that Umstead's papers clearly contain only a fraction of his original House and Senate files. Note that Umstead's official files as governor are state records housed at the North Carolina State Archives in Raleigh.

The papers of Merle Davis Umstead begin with the years immediately preceding her marriage to William Bradley Umstead and extend through the years following his death. Much of the material concerning Merle Davis Umstead relates to the various organizations of which she was a member and to her life as the wife of a politician and as first lady of North Carolina. Substantial numbers of condolence messages received by her and tributes to Governor Umstead after his death are included.

Merle Davis Umstead's family's material chiefly concerns the running of the family businesses, chiefly as merchants in Rutherford County, N.C., and financial matters of her parents, Charles D. Davis and Daisy Washburn Davis.

The addition of February 2002 contains diaries, personal correspondence, financial records, military papers, and other items, most of which relate to Umstead's military service during World War I.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 1. William Bradley Umstead United States House of Representatives Files, 1932-1938.

About 2000 items.

Arrangement: by type.

Legislative correspondence for 1937-1938, letters congratulating Umstead upon his retirement, and scattered other material. Umstead represented the 6th North Carolina district (Durham, Orange, Alamance, and Guilford Counties). These items undoubtedly represent only a fraction of Umstead's original files. The remainder of his House files presumably are lost or have been destroyed.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 1.1. Legislative Files, 1937-1938.

About 1250 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical by subject.

Correspondence with constituents concerning legislative issues, arranged and titled by Umstead's staff. Files relating to the judiciary, by far the largest category here, relate chiefly to Umstead's support for voluntary retirement of justices at age seventy and other legislation to reorganize the United States Supreme Court.

Other files chiefly contain statements of Umstead's stands on various legislation in response to mail from constituents. These files are arranged as they were received; A-H and S-Z files were not received with the collection.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 2.2.1. Legislative Files, 1947-1949.

About 750 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical by subject.

Chiefly correspondence with constituents regarding public issues of concern to them. Over half of this material concerns the Taft-Hartley Act, which Umstead supported. The act, intended to curb the power of organized labor, passed over President Truman's veto. Umstead routinely stated his position on the act and occasionally explained his stand in more detail.

Material also appears concerning such issues important to North Carolina as the furniture industry, federal aid to improve rivers and harbors, and Umstead's views on drunk driving and the prohibition of advertising of alcoholic beverages. Speeches record Umstead's stands on such issues as civil rights and agricultural legislation.

The majority of these files were organized and titled by Umstead's staff; they almost surely reflect only a fraction of his original subject files.

About 11500 items.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 3.1.1. Correspondence with Supporters and Organizers, 1951-1953.

About 10000 items.

Arrangement: by type then alphabetical by county.

Letters regarding support for Umstead's Candidacy, post-campaign letters of appreciation to supporters, and correspondence with county organizers. This material was arranged by Umstead's staff.

There is a fairly complete run of letters regarding support for Umstead's Candidacy arranged by county (there is no material for Clay or Haywood counties; High Point and Rocky Mount have their own files). These items consist chiefly of letters from Umstead soliciting support from individuals, responses to these letters, and Umstead's response in turn. Organizational correspondence is complete through Northampton County except for Bertie and Hyde counties, and contains a file for High Point. Post-campaign appreciation letters are the most scattered and least complete, and contain a miscellaneous file and an out-of-state file. See also Subseries 3.1.2, folder 660F.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 3.2. Miscellaneous Gubernatorial Files, 1951-1954.

About 1050 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical by type.

Personal correspondence of Umstead while he was governor, programs of events he attended, and such administrative material as state budget analyses, statements and press releases, business newsletters and other research material, and material relating to Umstead's inauguration.

The personal correspondence in this series consists almost entirely of routine social letters and includes a large number of get-well wishes and their acknowledgments. Inaugural material consists chiefly of invitations and letters of appreciation to people who worked on the event. Included in Other Gubernatorial Material are lists of members of several state agencies, some administrative reports, and items recording press coverage. Research Material consists chiefly of business newsletters and annual reports as well as reports on activities of other state governments.

Also in this series is a set of alphabetically arranged 3x5" index cards carrying names and addresses of political supporters who Umstead consulted when making state government appointments. Colors apparently reflected level of support.

The bulk of Umstead's gubernatorial papers are official state records on file at the North Carolina State Archives.

About 450 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical by subject.

Chiefly scattered material relating to R. Gregg Cherry's 1944 gubernatorial campaign, which Umstead managed, and to Umstead's decision not to run for the United States Senate in 1950. Other material consists of campaign items that are not marked such as to identify the particular campaign involved and items not related to campaigns.

Political correspondence includes a letter (24 October 1928), signed "KKK," threatening to lynch Umstead if he continued to support Al Smith's presidential candidacy; a resolution (November, 1928) signed by Umstead and other officers of the American Legion forbidding the Klan from participating in a parade; a letter (22 December 1941) from Josephus Daniels, publisher of the News and Observer , praising an address made by Umstead. Also included are letters in 1949 and 1950 from supporters urging that Umstead be appointed to replace Senator Broughton, and, when Frank Porter Graham was appointed instead, urging that he run for the office in the next election. The correspondence after 1950 consists primarily of invitations to speak at various local events, and Umstead's replies.

About 415 items.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 7.1. Correspondence, 1894-1961.

About 60 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Business and personal correspondence of Charles D. and Daisy Washburn Davis (parents of Merle Davis Umstead) and of various Washburn and Harton relatives of Daisy Washburn Davis.

From 1899 to 1918, there are chiefly letters written by John Harton to his mother, Mrs. W. H. Harton of Bostic, N.C., while Harton served in the United States Army stationed in the Philippines from 1899 until his death in 1901. These letters deal largely with Harton's health and location and his wishes for those at home. John Harton was the brother-in-law of Edgar Nollie Washburn. There is one letter to Mrs. W. H. Harton from another son, Leslie N. Harton, who was stationed in France in 1918. There are also several letters to William A. Washburn from friends and family members, including one written in 1902 by E. N. Washburn referring to the building of the store which still stood in Bostic in 1909.

From 1929 to 1961, there are chiefly business letters sent to Charles D. Davis in the early 1930s dealing with loans, insurance policies, and Davis's pension claims as a Spanish-American War veteran. There are a few letters to Davis from Congressman Zebulon Weaver. The correspondence of Daisy Washburn Davis is chiefly comprised of letters written to her when she was in Washington, D.C., in 1947 by her nephew, J. Reid Washburn of Bostic, N.C. The letters chiefly concern family matters and the collecting of rent by Reid Washburn on property owned by Daisy Washburn Davis. There are also clippings and letters sent to Daisy Washburn Davis by Laura H. Reilly, housekeeper of the Governor's Mansion while Davis's son-in-law, William Bradley Umstead, was governor of North Carolina (1952-1954). There are a few scattered letters written in the late 1930s to Ben Washburn, son of E. N. Washburn and Grace Harton Washburn, including brief responses by Senate committee members to inquiries made by Washburn and a vocational questionnaire from Sunshine High School.
