Abstract:

Correspondence, memoranda, diaries, reports, speeches, articles, clippings, a videotape, and other materials written or assembled by St. Paul (Minn.) native Robert E. Matteson, relating primarily to his career first in U.S. government service (1953-1971), on the White House staff and in other executive departments; then as director of the Sigurd Olson Institute of Environmental Studies at Northland College (Ashland, Wis., 1972-1974); and finally as lecturer, writer, and board member.

The papers also document Matteson's service in World War II, especially his role in the capture of Nazi Ernst Kaltenbrunner, and his long association with Harold Stassen. Matteson's career and writing reflect lifelong interests in U.S. foreign relations, disarmament, government service, higher education, and environmental affairs (especially wilderness preservation). The papers include genealogical research materials relating to the Matteson, Dickerman, and Hickcox families.

There is very little material relating to Matteson's immediate family--wife Jane and children Adelaide (Daidie), Fredric, Robert, Sumner, and Elizabeth--and it is interspersed throughout the papers. There is some material relating to a scholarship for Indian students that Matteson funded in memory of his uncle, Sumner W. Matteson, Jr., a photographer and writer who spent some time on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation (Mont.) during 1905-1906.
