The John L. McGruder Papers document McGruder’s career as a public administrator and planning consultant McGruder and traces his work through a succession of federal agencies from the 1950s through the 1980s, including the Atomic Energy Commission and the Department of Transportation. McGruder donated these papers to the Hoover Presidential Library in two accessions, in 1985 and 1992.


John Lancer McGruder was born in Iowa City, Iowa on May 14, 1916.  McGruder attended Drake University in Des Moines, as well as Northwestern University, graduating from Drake in 1940.  He received a master’s degree in public administration and international relations from the University of Chicago in 1950.

McGruder’s first jobs were in the insurance industry, working in Des Moines and Chicago throughout the 1930s and 1940s.  From 1940 to 1946, McGruder served in the U.S. Army Air Corp, and after retiring from active duty, served in the Air Force Reserves with the rank of colonel.  He joined the staff of the Navy Department in Washington as a management analyst in 1950, and the following year he took a job with the Atomic Energy Commission. 

From 1951 to 1962, McGruder served in a variety of posts at the AEC, including liaison officer for the Office of the General Manager, special assistant to the chairman (serving both Lewis Strauss and John McCone in this capacity), and director of the Division of Plans.  During his service with the AEC, McGruder also worked on the staff of the Hoover Commission on the Organization of the Executive Branch of Government, in 1954-1955.  With the Hoover Commission, McGruder worked as a staff analyst on the Task Force on Personnel and Civil Service, as well as a consultant to the Task Force on Intelligence Activities.  Following this work, McGruder also served as an assistant to the Special Assistant to the President, compiling reports and recommendations for implementing the findings of the Hoover Commission.

In his last position with the AEC, McGruder was responsible for long-range planning within the agency.  In 1962 McGruder moved to the private sector, taking a position with the Martin Marietta Corporation as director of administrative planning for the Martin Company.  McGruder hoped to apply his substantial expertise in long-range planning in a new context, but when company management lost interest in this goal in 1965, McGruder joined the Department of Commerce as the director of emergency transportation within the office of the Undersecretary for Transportation.  Within a couple of years, this office became the core of the newly-formed Department of Transportation, created at the suggestion of President Lyndon Johnson.  In this new department, McGruder served as the director of the Office of Emergency Transportation, and later, as the director of management systems.

McGruder left the Transportation Department in early 1978 to take a position in the Reorganization Implementation Unit of the Office of Management and Budget, where he remained for the next five years.  During this period, McGruder worked on a project to review and suggest alternatives for the administration of the Employee Retirement Income and Security Act (or ERISA), as well as a broader project to study the reorganization and deregulation of specific administrative functions with various Federal agencies.  This latter project was conducted with the assistance of a task force from the National Academy of Public Administration. 

After McGruder left the Office of Management and Budget, he continued to work as a public administration consultant in Washington.  During this period he became increasingly active in the work of the American Consortium for International Public Administration, or ACIPA, serving as the group’s executive director for several years until his retirement in 1992. Some highlights of McGruder’s service within ACIPA include his service on a task force convened by the foreign aid review task force of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs (1988), as well as the director of a series of twelve seminars on institutional development from 1984-1986.

During his years in Washington, McGruder also taught public administration courses at the American University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Graduate School.  After his retirement from consulting, McGruder relocated to Sarasota, Florida in 1996.


The Papers are arranged in two series: 

The “Agencies and Departments Series” is arranged by the various agencies and organizations that McGruder worked for,

Among the organizations in the “Agencies and Departments” series are the following:

  • American Consortium for International Public Administration (ACIPA, 5 boxes): The bulk of material consists of notes on the seminars on institutional development which McGruder organized from 1984-1986, yet also contains files on other initiatives or projects spearheaded by McGruder.
  • Atomic Energy Commission (6 boxes): Although this material contains reports on a variety of topics, most of the original material concerns administrative planning, and especially long-range plans for the Commission which McGruder was responsible for in the early 1960s.
  • Brookings Institution Conference on Public Service (6 boxes): McGruder was hired by the Brookings Institution as a consultant in 1961, to work on a study of long-range planning in various Federal agencies. These files contain some background material on the conference, but primarily contain reports and other information on long-range planning from the various agencies that were surveyed.
  • Transportation Department (10 boxes): Covers the years 1964-1978, including McGruder’s period of working within the Department of Commerce. 
  • Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA, 3 boxes): These files document McGruder’s involvement with a task force studying the reorganization of ERISA, which was one of McGruder’s responsibilities in his position with the Office of Management and Budget in 1978-1979.
  • Martin Company (2 boxes): Contains material relating to McGruder’s work on long-range planning with this division of Martin Marietta Corporation, 1962-1965.
  • National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA, 11 boxes): These files document another project that McGruder worked on during his years at OMB, that of studying the reorganization of the administrative functions of specific Federal agencies, from 1981-1983.
  • National Consumer Cooperative Bank (NCCB, 2 boxes): An agency signed into law during the Carter Administration, and with which McGruder was involved as part of his duties with the OMB.
  • Office of Management and Budget (2 boxes): Contains files not included in the subseries on ERISA, NAPA, or NCCB.


SUBJECT FILES contain mostly reading and research files. Includes files relating to McGruder’s work with the Second Hoover Commission. There may be overlap between these files and agencies in the first series. Arranged alphabetical by subject.
