Abstract:

Papers of Norman Clapp (1914-1998), a Wisconsin newspaper editor and publisher, Democratic politician, federal and state government administrator, and energy consultant. Included are correspondence, an oral history, memoranda, financial materials, photographs, publicity, research material and studies, draft legislation, clippings (portions of which are awaiting microfilming), and printed matter. General personal and career papers include extensive correspondence with Lawrence College friends; political associates such as Thomas R. Amlie, Philip La Follette, and Robert M. La Follette Jr.; and family members including his brother, Gordon Clapp. Additional material relates to the movement in Wisconsin to oust Senator Joseph R. McCarthy. Journalistic papers contain incomplete correspondence and financial records concerning his award-winning editorship and management of the Grant County Independent and the Muscoda Progressive. Several boxes relate to Clapp's three unsuccessful attempts to win the Third Congressional District seat in southwestern Wisconsin.

In addition to campaign literature, financial records, lists, analysis, and advertising, there is extensive correspondence with national, state, and local party leaders including Charles F. Brannon, LeRoy Gore, Kenneth Hones, Hubert Humphrey, Estes Kefauver, John F. Kennedy, Patrick J. Lucey, Henry W. Maier, Philleo Nash, Gaylord Nelson, and William Proxmire. Files on his career as administrator of the Rural Electrification Administration include correspondence, memoranda, studies, legislation about supplementary financing for the agency, a complete reading file of outgoing correspondence and memoranda (1961-1969), and exchanges with White House staff. Pertaining to his later career as an energy consultant are project files containing correspondence, memoranda, and draft reports on work done in association with David Lilienthal's Resources and Development Corporation and Stone and Webster Engineering Corp. Of special interest is the file on the 1977 New York City blackout.

Photographs include formal and informal portraits, snapshots of the Clapp family, views of activities as head of the REA (one with Orville Freeman) and the Wisconsin DOT, as a journalist, and as a congressional candidate. The latter include John F. Kennedy, Patrick J. Lucey, Estes Kefaufer, Henry Maier, and William Proxmire.
