Abstract:

Records, mainly 1938-1947, of the Walter S. Goodland administration (1943-1947), including official correspondence; press releases and scrapbooks; proclamations; bulletins; memoranda; invitations; appointments; files relating to the World War II Wisconsin homefront; and communications with state agencies such as the Aeronautics Commission, the Deep Waterways Commission, the Veterans Recognition Board, and the Wisconsin Council of Defense and with federal agencies such as the Office of Civilian Defense, the Office of Defense Transportation, the Office of Price Administration, the War Production Board, the War Manpower Commission, and the War Department.

Well documented administrative topics include the Allis-Chalmers strike, Bangs Disease, the Battleship Wisconsin, deer hunting, gambling, the Gentile League, highway funding, the Integrated Bar Bill, lake pollution, legislative and elective politics, the Mississippi Water Use Council, old age pensions, postwar conversion, rationing and rent control, school consolidation, taxes, veterans' problems, and the Women's Army Corps.

Correspondents include many people prominent in Wisconsin and national politics and other areas.

Personal material included with the official papers consists of pre-gubernatorial family correspondence; microfilmed newspaper columns written by Goodland for the Racine Times-Call (1922-1932) some of which concern his years in the Wisconsin Legislature; correspondence, speeches, and press releases as lieutenant governor (1939-1943); personal and family correspondence dating from his years as governor including extensive exchanges with William J. Campbell, Martin J. Gillen, George M. Sheldon, and the Goodland family; an unpublished biography (ca. 1974) by Goodland's granddaughter, Dorothy Hackler; and an unpublished Goodland family genealogy.

The processed portion of this collection is summarized above and described in the register. There are additional accessions which are described below.
