WILLIAM P. MAC CRACKEN, Jr. PAPERS
 
 
 
 
                                        Scope and Content Note
 
                The recent deregulation of the airline industry has produced a great deal of
        confusion and controversy, but it is still a far cry from the chaotic conditions of the early
        1920's when commercial passenger service was its infancy.  In those simpler times there
        were no overnight air mail deliveries, no licensing qualifications for pilots, no safety
        standards for aircraft, and almost no regularly scheduled passenger service anywhere in
        the United States.  But air travel began to change with the passage of the Air Commerce
        Act of 1926 which established the bureau of aeronautics in the Commerce Department
        and provided for the first time for the regulation of civil aviation.
 
                The first federal regulator of aviation was William P. Mac Cracken, Jr  An
        experienced aviator who had served as a flight instructor during World War I,
        MacCracken also served on the Chicago Aero Commission and was a member of the
        board of governors of the National Aeronautical Association (1922-26) before Herbert
        Hoover appointed him as the first Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Aeronautics in
        1926.  MacCracken's Papers were given to the Hoover Library by Mrs. Sallie L.
        MacCracken Murphy and her daughter, Nell Elizabeth MacCracken, in several
        installments totaling 45 linear feet between 1971 and 1992.  The most recent of these
        accretions (9 linear feet) was received in March of 1992 and has proven to be a valuable
        source of information concerning the expansion of commercial aviation, numerous
        corporate mergers, the background of the notorious 1930 conference of airline operators
        and a subsequent Senate investigation.
 
                After helping to draft much needed safety standards and regulations, MacCracken
        left the Commerce Department in 1929 to resume the practice of law.  He continued to be
        actively involved in the growth of commercial aviation after leaving the Commerce
        Department.  Indeed, his role as chairman of the 1930 conference was thrust upon him
        because his firm had advised and represented so many of the major airlines.  Ultimately,
        this relationship would make him a prime target of Senate investigators.  The conference
        had been convened by U.S. Postmaster Walter F. Brown in an effort to get airline
        operators to agree to a consolidation of the various airmail routes into three or four
        coast to coast networks operated by the best equipped and most financially stable
        companies.  This close cooperation between the federal government and the major
        commercial airlines left Brown and MacCracken vulnerable to charges of favoritism.
        When a complaint was lodged with the Senate Committee on Ocean Mail and Air Mail
        Contracts, Chairman Hugo Black agreed to investigate what appeared to be a Republican
        scandal.
 
                Black opened the hearings in September 1933 and MacCracken soon found
        himself prominently featured as one of the alleged conspirators.  As part of the
        Committee's investigation, Black subpoenaed and later seized MacCracken's office files.
        Major portions of these files were stamped as exhibits and offered in evidence before
        Black's committee.  The files were eventually returned to MacCracken and comprise
        virtually all of the papers received from Nell MacCracken in 1992.
 
                Even though investigators found no evidence of collusion or conspiracy in the
        files or elsewhere, the Roosevelt administration cancelled all air mail contracts with
        commercial airlines in February 1934.  Henceforth, the airmail would be delivered by the
        U.S. Army Air Corps.  Despite a valiant effort, the Air Corps soon proved ill-equipped
        and too disorganized to handle the job.  After twelve fatal accidents and several lesser
        injuries in less than a month, President Roosevelt allowed the airlines to resume flying the
        mail in mid-March.
 
                The exercise proved the wisdom of awarding contracts to the most experienced
        operators; but it had also been very costly.  Dozens of airlines executives who had
        attended the "spoils conference" were illegally blacklisted and, in effect, excluded from
        employment with any of the major airlines.  A half million dollars of Air Corps equipment
        was destroyed and twelve lives were lost.  Private operators had been receiving an average
        of 54 cents per mile to fly the mail in 1933.  The cost of Air Corps operations amounted to
        $2.21 -- over four times as much!
 
                MacCracken's papers do not contain the full record of the Black Committee's
        deliberations, but they do provide considerable information on a wide range of issues and
        aviation related topics during an important period in the development of commercial
        aviation.  The collection contains a large number of photographs of early planes and
        equipment.
 
                The collection also contains files concerning MacCracken's law practice after
        1929 and his service as secretary [1925-36] of the American Bar Association.
