Creator: Wheeler, Burton K. (Burton Kendall), 1882-1975


Provenance Note: Political and personal papers created or collected by Burton K. Wheeler were donated to MSU libraries in January, 1990 by Charlotte and Edward K. Wheeler.


Historical Note: Burton Kendall Wheeler was born in Hudson, Massachusetts on February 27, 1882 and moved to Montana shortly after his graduation from law school in 1905. He began his law career in Butte, serving as U.S. Attorney for Montana from 1913 to 1918 prior to his election to the U.S. Senate in 1922. In 1924, he ran unsuccessfully for vice-president on the Progressive Party presidential ticket. Wheeler is remembered as one of the most powerful senators in Washington D.C. in the 1930s. Chairman of the Interstate Commerce Committee and of the Indian Affairs Committee, he personally influenced such key New Deal legislation as the Public Utilities Holding Company Act of 1935 and the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 (the Wheeler-Howard Act). In 1937, he successfully led the opposition to President Roosevelt's attempt to pack the Supreme Court with justices of his own political persuasion. Throughout his years in the Senate, Wheeler consistently opposed war. He supported neutrality legislation in the 1930s, spoke out against peacetime conscription in 1940, fought against the Lend-Lease aid to Britain in 1941, and took an active roll in the "America First" movement. After the United States decided to enter World War II, however, Wheeler gave his full support to the effort. He was defeated for reelection in 1946 and practiced law in Washington D.C. until his death in 1975.


Content Description Note: The papers consist of correspondence, memoranda, memorabilia, clippings, speeches, subject files, photographs, and other materials pertaining to Wheeler's personal and political life. There are few senatorial papers from Burton's long tenure in office because he appears to have disposed of them after the 1946 election. What remains are primarily materials which are retrospective in nature, including drafts of Wheeler's autobiography, "Yankee from the West," letters and memoranda pertaining to the same, and correspondence from researchers, political associates, and family members. Subject files include materials pertaining to Wheeler's 1923-25 court battle against a Justice Department indictment; rural telephone legislation; the 1924 presidential campaign; anti-war and conscription items; and general topical notes kept on 5 x 8 and 3 x 5 inch cards.


Series 1: Autobiographical materials, 1958-1972

Letters, memoranda, manuscript draft, personal greetings collected or created by Burton K. Wheeler in conjunction with his autobiography "Yankee from the West," published in 1962. Material includes letters to the publisher's legal counsel regarding possible libelous materials, marketing information, and research notes. Two files of birthday greetings received and acknowledged by the senator on his eightieth birthday, which coincided with the release of his book, are also in this series. Notebooks, likely prepared by writer Paul F. Healy while preparing to work on the autobiography, have been placed in box 3 along with manuscript speeches and articles written by Wheeler after he had retired from public life.
