Correspondence, 1940 - 1941, 11 boxes

Call Number: MG 1331


Smathers was a U.S. Senator from New Jersey elected in 1936.  Correspondence is primarily from individuals and New Jersey groups concerning America's entry into the war, Lend/Lease, President Roosevelt, Great Britain, the Neutrality Act and other government programs of the day.  Of the letters concerning the war, the majority are opposed to America's entry.  There is also a fair amount of anti-Roosevelt, anti-British sentiment.

Gift of the University of Southern Mississippi, 1993.
