An Indexed Register of Her
Congressional Papers
1959-1970

INTRODUCTION

The papers of Catherine May Bedell, Member of Congress, were acquired by the Washington State University Library in February 1971. A gift of Mrs. May, the collection was transferred to the Library from her office and the National Archives and Records Service facility at Washington, D.C. The collection consists of approximately 400,000 items in 558 containers and constitutes the Congressional office files of Mrs. May during her tenure as United States Representative from the Fourth Congressional District of Washington, between 1959 and 1970.

Number of containers: 558

BIOGRAPHY

Catherine May was born Catherine Dean Barnes at Yakima, Washington, in 1914. Graduating from Yakima High School in 1932, she attended Yakima Valley Junior College through 1934, and then received the Bachelor of Science degree in 1936 and the Fifth Year Education Certificate from the University of Washington in 1937. From 1937 through 1940, she taught English in the Chehalis High School, interrupting this tenure for a brief period in 1939 to study speech at the University of Southern California.

At the close of the school year in 1940, Mrs. May entered into a career in radio journalism and advertising, first with station KMO in Tacoma, and later stations KOMO and KJR in Seattle. From 1942 to 1944, she worked in advertising for Strange and Prosser Advertising Agency and the Federal Insurance Company, both of Seattle. She was in New York City 1944-1946 in the employment of the National Broadcasting Company. Following this, Mrs. May returned to Washington State, continuing in radio journalism at station KIT in Yakima through 1957.

Catherine May entered politics actively when she was a candidate and elected to the Washington State House of Representatives in 1952, representing a Yakima district. Re-elected twice, she remained a member of the state legislature until 1958, when she secured the Republican nomination to succeed retiring Republican Congressman, Otis Halbert Holmes. She was elected to the United States Congress six times and served until 1970 when she was succeeded by Democrat, Mike McCormack. Upon leaving Congress, she was appointed one of the Federal government trustees of the quasi-public National Railroad Passenger Corporation (AMTRAK). In May of 1971, President Richard Nixon appointed her a member and Chairman of United States Tariff Commission.

When Catherine May entered the United States Congress in early 1959, she was the first woman Representative from the State of Washington. Also, she was the first Representative from the State of Washington in quite a few years to be appointed to the Committee on Agriculture, an assignment that is highly desired by Representatives from Washington State. Mrs. May held this Agriculture Committee assignment during her entire tenure in Congress. Work in this committee, and her efforts on behalf of her constituents, occupied the center of attention throughout her congressional career. Partially due to this concern with agricultural policy, May was selected as a Congressional member of the National Commission on Food Marketing, one of the numerous "study commissions" of the 1960’s. During her last term in office, she received a second committee assignment, the Joint committee on Atomic Energy. She was, lastly, a member of the somewhat ephemeral but nevertheless interesting, House Beauty Parlor Committee.

Although Representative May’s attention centered on her committee and constituent work, her career was not dominated by either of these. Like most members of Congress in the 1960’s, she was involved in almost every major public issue of the time. Her papers reveal significant interests in consumer affairs, the "hunger" and poverty issues, transportation policy, drugs, minority relations, and, on occasion, foreign affairs. The return of a Republican administration to power in the 1968 election increased May’s contact and concern with the whole range of governmental and public affairs. She was one of the congressional leaders that supported the administration. She was apparently considered for the post of Secretary of Agriculture at the time the Nixon Administration was organized. After leaving Congress, she continued to receive significant appointments. At this date of publication, she was active in the Federal government as United States Tariff Commissioner, a position of importance to the economic issues of the early 1970’s. 66 linear feet of additional papers that document these post-Congressional assignments (MS77-51, MS8051, MS81-13, MS82-03) are also available in Manuscripts Archives and Special Collections

Mrs. May’s career in the United States House of Representatives is the subject of scholarly inquiry by Elizabeth Anne Hagne in her A Congresswoman and Her Constituents: Catherine May and the Fourth Congressional District of Washington (unpublished M.A. Thesis: Washington State University, 1968).

ALTERNATIVE FORMAT

Selected images and documents from this collection have been digitized and can be found online in the Catherine May Congressional Papers Digital Collection.

DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION

The collection consists of those papers generated and received by the office of Representative May during her six terms in the United States Congress. The content of the collection amply documents the wide arrange of legislative matters confronting the Congress during the 1960’s. Indeed, the Catherine May Papers contain materials relevant to almost every public issue of that period.

The great value of this collection to scholarship may be described under three general subjects:

The first, and the largest, concerns political affairs of the Fourth Congressional District, including personalities, events, constituent services, interests, and opinions. Of special value are those papers concerned with Federal government operations in the Fourth District and those concerned with public opinion;

The second area of importance and value concerns Republican Party politics diffused throughout the collection. Those parties that concern the years of Republican Party control of Congress are rich;

The third area, one most clearly demarcated in the collection, concerns agriculture policy and politics. The agricultural emphasis is due to Mrs. May’s committee assignment, as well as her personal interests and the interest of her constituents in the principally agricultural Fourth District.

Representative Catherine May co-sponsored legislation to provide women with equal pay for equal work. At this White House ceremony President Kennedy signed into law the "Equal Pay Act of 1963." Catherine May is shown directly behind the President. At May’s right is Congresswoman Edna Kelly of New York and at the left, foreground, is Congresswoman Edith green of Oregon. Vice President Johnson is at the right, background.
ARRANGEMENT OF THE COLLECTION

The original arrangement of this collection was simplified but altered very slightly. A sizable bulk of published material was removed and transferred to other divisions of the library. Tearsheets of the Congressional Record were discarded unless germane to other material at hand. Duplicate items were removed. Files of redundant material, requests for the Agricultural Yearbook, for example, were sampled and only 10-15% retained. An exception to this practice was made in the case of constituent letter-writing campaigns. These materials were retained intact.

The collection is arranged into nine series, retaining the original office arrangement. Two series, Invitations and National Commission o Food Marketing, were established by removal or separation from earlier filing in the main "subject" series. Within the series, the arrangement is chronological, based on the periodic closing of the files, and each sub-series is alphabetical.

Correspondence will generally be found in the front of a folder, arranged alphabetically by correspondent, with extended exchanges filed together. Original and copies of items relevant to two or more subjects are often filed under each pertinent entry.

INDEX

The index that follows provides a comprehensive finding aid that locates all materials pertaining to a given subject even though these may be scattered by the arrangement of the collection. It is an index of the folder inventory, uniting in one alphabet all series and sub-series, a method and procedure that appears to be superior in improving the efficiency of searching in a collection of this magnitude and diversity. While the entries are based on folder headings, these entries have been generalized or made comprehensive to provide a single indexing term that embraces homogeneous and related information. The arrangement is word by word, disregarding initial articles. The numbers accompanying the entries are citations to numbered containers where the information may be found.

Using the index is uncomplicated. A searcher interested in Congressional concern of food and drug legislation is directed to the entry
Drug legislation184, 274, 427
see also Meat inspection

If the searcher then refers to the Series Description (page 9), he/she will see that container 184 is in the 1966 sub-series and that information regarding food and drug legislation continues in additional folders in 1968 (container 274) and 1970 (container 427). Examination of container 184 produces a folder labeled Bills - H. Con. res. 1046 - Sense of Congress-regulation of food and drug labeling, diet foods. Examination of the cross reference Meat inspection produces a quantity of items in container 221 regarding regulation of state meat inspection systems, in a folder labeled Agriculture - Meat Inspection, 1967.

Finally, if this searcher is knowledgeable regarding government agencies, he/she will pursue further information in those citations following Food and Drug Administration.
