COMMISSIONS ON THE ORGANIZATION OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH
 
 
 
 
                Mr. Hoover's personal papers concerning his services as Chairman of the two
        U.S. Commissions on Organization of the Executive Branch were given to the United
        States of America for deposit in the Hoover Presidential Library by Mr. Hoover on
        December 15, 1960.  Literary rights in the unpublished writings of Herbert Hoover
        have been given and assigned to the United States of America.

                                SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE
 
                I. Background and Administrative History.
 
                By 1947, the federal government's efforts to cope with the depression,defeat the
        axis' powers, and unravel the problems of demobilization had left in its wake a jumble
        of executive agencies.  A national debt of unprecedented size and spiraling peacetime
        budgets also led to the inescapable conclusion that something would have to be done to
        improve the efficiency and economy of government operations.  Congress also hoped
        to trim the size and influence of the executive establishment and to restore the balance
        of power between the two branches that had been weakened by the conferral of vast
        presidential war powers.  The need for reorganization was obvious and compelling and,
        on July 7, 1947, Congress responded by creating a Commission on the Organization
        of the Executive Branch of the Government.
 
                The selection of former President Hoover as Chairman of the Commission
        was an obvious and natural choice.  Less obvious, however, were some of the implications
        of the appointment.  At age 73, the former president announced that this was to be his
        "last public service" and -quickly made it evident that he regarded the Commission as a
        personal project and that he had no intentions of being a figurehead.  Moreover, his
        experience and prestige, induced his fellow commissioners to accept his leadership and
        judgment.  The value of this leadership, in the eyes of one participant, "was indispensible
        for the Commission.  Without it a twelve-man body of heterogeneous composition
        would at many points have found agreement extremely difficult to achieve."
 
                The Commission was authorized to investigate and make recommendations
        concerning the organization of the executive branch which would result in improved
        efficiency and economy of operation and better service to the public.  Initial studies
        were conducted by twenty-four task force committees, each delving into specific areas
        such as budgeting, personnel, national defense, the Executive Office of the President,
        public works, foreign affairs, and public welfare.  Each task force prepared a report,
        including its recommendations, for the consideration of the Commission.  After much
        discussion the Commission's findings and recommendations were forwarded to
        Congress, from February through May 1949, in nineteen separate Commission Reports.
        In contrast to previous reorganization efforts,  most of the Commission's 273
        recommendations were implemented by Congress to varying degrees.  The 1955 report
        of the Citizens' Committee for the Hoover Report notes that 116 recommendations
        were fully realized, 35 were mostly carried out, and 45 were partially implemented.
 
                Despite the apparent success of the first Hoover Commission, there were
        many who felt that the Commission had not gone far enough.  Not only were there
        additional areas of inefficiency and waste that had not been discovered; but
        the first Commission had lacked the clear authority to make recommendations
        with respect to certain policy, Commission member Dean Acheson recalled that
        the first Commission decided to avoid taking positions on-the wisdom of es-
        tablished policies and to confine itself to recommendations for the improve-
        ment of organization, procedures and operations. This limitation in the
        first Commission's charter was widely discussed in the Congress and in the
        press with the result that the second Hoover Commission was given a much
        broader jurisdiction which included a mandate to recommend the elimination of
        nonessential services and activities competitive with private enterprise.
 
                Another significant change gave the second Commission the right to supoena
        and take sworn testimony.
 
                The operation of the second Hoover Commission followed the organizational
        patterns established by the first Commission.  Nineteen task force committees
        supplied data and made recomendations that were employed in the preparations
        of eighteen Commission reports to Congress.  The Commission was authorized by
        a law approved July 10, 1953 and liquidated its activities in September 1955.
 
        II. Scope and Content of the Collection.
 
                These are Mr. Hoover's personal papers created during his service as
        Chairman of the two Commissions.  They amount to 19 and 34 linear feet res-
        pectively.  Some major correspondents are listed in part IV of this scope
        and content note.  Record Group 264 in the National Archives contains the
        records generated by the Commission (275 linear feet), including those of its
        Executive Director, Secretary, and various task force committees, and the
        minutes of the Commission.
 
                Mr. Hoover's active, guiding role in determining the overall agenda for
        the Commission, selecting task force members, and in the detailed process of
        drafting the reports of the Commission has frequently been cited by his as-
        sociates.  4  These activities are amply documented in his papers. Early ar-
        rangements for the first Commission, the selection of Hoover as Chairman, the
        appointment of task force personnel, and the formulation of general policies
        are discussed in Hoover's correspondence with Julius Klein (Commission Report
        Series: "General Management of the Executive Branch--Correspondence--Klein")-
                The abundance and variety of reports prepared by and for the Commission
        (i.e. reports of task forces, consultant's and staff reports to task forces, and the final
        reports of the Commission to Congress) is often a source of confusion.  Further
        confusion sometimes results from the fact that two or more task force reports might
        contribute to the eventual preparation of a single Commission report.  The first
        Commission's report on the Interior Department, for example, drew on the reports of
        the task forces on Natural Resources, Water Resources, and Public Works.
 
                Still another difficulty stems from the fact that not all of the reports
        of consultants and task forces were published by the GPO.  The reports of task
        force staff members and consultants were not published, but were submitted
        to Congress in typescript.  Most, but not all, of the task force reports were
        published.  Some of the unpublished reports of consultants and task forces may
        be found in the Hoover Commission papers in this repository.  A list of the
        reports, published and unpublished, may be found in the Final Report of each
        Commission in the Library reading room.  The Final Reports also contain sev-
        eral useful summaries concerning the recommendations and opportunities for
        savings suggested by the Commissions and topical indexes to all of the published
        reports.
 
                Part IV of this Scope and Content Note lists the location of major col-
        lections of related papers.  Not listed are the papers of commission, members,
        consultants, and advisers who may have retained in their personal files some
        documentation of their services with the Commission.  Researchers should con-
        sult the National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections and other references
        guides for the location of such collections.
