Biographical Sketch

Martin Dies was born on November 5, 1900 in Colorado City, Texas. The son of Olive M. and Martin Dies, Sr., Dies was raised in Beaumont and Greenville, Texas. He attended public schools in Beaumont and Greenville as well as Cluster Springs Academy in Cluster Springs, Virginia. In 1918, he graduated from Beaumont High School. Dies received a Bachelor of Laws degree from National University in Washington, D.C. in 1920 and was admitted to the Texas State Bar. He practiced law in Marshall, Texas until 1922 when he joined his father's law firm in Orange, Texas.

In 1930, Dies was elected to the House of Representatives from the Second District of Texas, the seat his father occupied from 1909 to 1919. When Dies was elected, the district included the counties of Jefferson, Orange, Angelina, Sabine, San Augustine, Tyler, Hardin, Liberty, Jasper, Newton, and Shelby. After 1935, the district was expanded to include Panola, Nacogdoches, Cherokee, and Harrison counties. As Congressman, Dies had seats on several committees, but the papers only cover his involvement with the Rules Committee and the House Un-American Activities Committee.

Martin Dies achieved national prominence as chairman of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). HUAC, formed in 1938, probed Nazi, fascist, and communist organizations. Dies served as committee chairman from 1938 to 1945. Although the committee worked against all "isms," it was best known for its opposition to communist activities in the United States. Indeed, the hallmark of Dies' career was speaking out against communism and the Soviet Union.

Dies was twice, in 1941 and 1957, a candidate for the U.S. Senate. In 1941 he finished last in a four-way race and in 1957, finished second. Dies was a delegate to the Texas State Convention in 1944. Ill health forced him to resign his seat in the House in 1944. He then joined the Lufkin law firm of Collins, Dies, Garrison and Renfro. In 1952, he was elected Congressman-at-Large for Texas, an office he occupied until 1959. Following his retirement from Congress, Dies returned to his law practice in Lufkin.

In 1920, Dies married Myrtle M. Adams and together they had three sons: Martin, Jr., a former Texas state legislator and justice of the Texas Court of Appeals in Beaumont; Robert, deceased; and Jack, an attorney in the Attorney General's Office in Austin.

Dies wrote Martin Dies' Story (1963) and The Trojan Horse in America (1941). Dies died in 1972 and was buried in Lufkin.


Scope and Contents

This collection is primarily composed of materials generated from 1930 to 1958. It is arranged in three series that reflect Dies' political career: papers from his years as Congressman from the Second District; papers from the interim years, between Congressional service; and papers from his years as Congressman-at-Large. While documents comprise the greatest volume of the collection, there are scrapbooks, sound recordings, artifacts, publications, and photographs as well.

The Martin Dies Papers document many political issues from the twentieth century. During Dies' years as Congressman from the Second District, the nation faced the Depression, New Deal, and World War II. Later, while Congressman-at-Large, issues such as the Cold War and the controversy over the end of segregation challenged the country.

Congressman from the Second District
The legislative topical files document many issues important to Dies' constituents in the Second District. These issues include cotton, oil, natural gas production, the ownership of the tidelands, silver, immigration, wage and hour legislation, and the dangers of subversives in America. Although chiefly composed of correspondence between Dies and his constituents, the legislative topical files include broadsides, newspaper clippings, statements, and publications.

The collection includes material relating to Dies' chairmanship of HUAC. While not the official HUAC committee files, the HUAC papers include files on individuals being investigated, publications,and card files. These cards focus on "subversives" and include such personal information as name, address, relationship to the subversive group, and the source of the information. The majority of the HUAC papers pertains to communist, fascist, and Nazi activities in the United States.

As Congressman from the Second District, Dies spent much time corresponding with constituents in order to assist them with problems with federal government agencies. The papers document the different federal government agencies involved in building post offices, roads, schools, and bridges in the Second Congressional District. Requests for assistance in gaining admittance to military academies were numerous, and during World War II, there are a large number of requests regarding enlistment, switching military branches, and getting information about family members in the military. Problems such as labor shortages, receiving Social Security benefits, the rationing of food and fuel, and the lack of adequate housing prompted appeals for assistance from Dies. In addition, the correspondence reveals attitudes toward the federal government, the New Deal, and Franklin Roosevelt.

District Business contains correspondence between Dies and his constituents during the 1930s and 1940s. It provides an often intimate look at the people of the Second Congressional District. Included in the letters are recollections of Dies' father, questions about Dies' family history, opinions on the New Deal, acknowledgment of gifts, requests for loans, requests for the President's and other politicians' autographs, congratulations on the birth of Dies' son Jack, discussions of Dies' political future, and letters praising Dies' performance. One of the most emotionally discussed topics is the appointment of Governor James V. Allred to a federal judgeship in south Texas by Franklin Roosevelt. The vast majority of Dies' correspondents harshly criticized Allred and many offered to provide Dies with evidence of Allred's supposed corruption. This subseries offers insight into how individuals' lives were changed by the Great Depression and World War II.

Dies' campaigns and elections are documented in the collection with materials such as newspaper clippings, expense statements, correspondence, and campaign literature.

Interim Years
The second series provides some documentation of Dies' activities and thoughts during the years between his service in the House of Representatives. The series is chiefly composed of correspondence regarding political issues, including the merits of politicians such as General Dwight D. Eisenhower and Price Daniel. Dies' political ambitions, as his desire to be a U.S. Senator, are also discussed. Other correspondence pertains to speeches Dies gave during these years. Though Dies practiced law at this time, there are few papers in the collection relating to his legal practice. The exception is his defense of the Marshall Housewives. The Marshall housewives protested against their burdens as employers of domestic help under the Social Security Act of 1950; this act brought domestic workers into the old age and survivors insurance system.

Congressman-at-Large
The third series documents Dies' years as Congressman-at-Large. Like the first series, there are extensive files on current legislation and Dies' efforts to assist constituents with federal government agencies. The series differs in that there is a larger volume of files regarding legislation, due at least in part to the fact that Dies represented the entire state of Texas, not just one district of East Texas. Like the legislative topical files in the first series, there is a strong emphasis on natural gas, oil, communism, and immigration.

The legislative topical files of the 1950s include additional information on issues such as civil rights and segregation. The collection documents the opinions of some East Texans on topics relating to these issues, such as the Supreme Court, states' rights, and federal aid to education. Other new topics of concern included the railroad and a postal pay raise. In the 1950s, railroads faced difficult economic challenges; Dies received much correspondence in support of the Smathers-Harris bill, which was designed to allow railroads to adjust rates in order to compete with other forms of transportation. Postal employees lobbied Dies for pay raises by protesting that their salaries were inadequate. These letters document families' budgets and financial expectations during the 1950s.

The Congressman-at-Large series includes a subseries on contemporary political topics, including communism. While many correspondents expressed fears over the spread of communism, others wrote to express concern over the actions of HUAC. In several instances, people wrote that HUAC had destroyed their lives. Other topics include the Democratic Party, segregation, and drought in Texas.

The collection documents many different aspects of the work of a Congressman. While the legislative topical files show that he was writing and editing legislation, he had many other responsibilities. There are files detailing his work on Congressional committees. The official correspondence illustrates the time and effort devoted to assisting constituents with their problems with federal government agencies. Moreover, administrative files illustrate the responsibilities of managing staff, equipment, and supplies in a Congressional office. The invitations indicate the social and political demands on a Congressman in the 1950s.

Speeches and Sound Recordings
Throughout his life, Martin Dies was known for his great oratory. Though the collection includes sound recordings of only a few of his speeches, it does contain transcripts and drafts of his speeches over his entire political career. Dies spoke on a number of topics, including communism, patriotism, HUAC, and the economy.

Personal Papers
While the vast majority of the documents in the Martin Dies Papers pertain to his political career, a few papers illustrate the private side of Martin Dies. The personal papers in the collection provide ample documentation of Dies' close watch over his personal finances, his concern for his children and their education, and his membership in fraternal organizations.

Photographs
The collection contains sixty-seven black and white photographs. Many of them are of Dies, including depictions of Dies serving as chairman of HUAC. In addition, there are photographs of East Texas individuals and buildings.

Artifacts
There are twenty artifacts in the collection, including a bumper sticker from Lyndon Johnson's 1941 Senate campaign, a 1938 political cartoon regarding Dies' work on HUAC, and one of Dies' characteristic Stetson hats.
