SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The recent deregulation of the airline industry has produced a great deal of confusion and controversy, but it is still a far cry from the chaotic conditions of the early 1920's when commercial passenger service was its infancy.  In those simpler times there were no overnight air mail deliveries, no licensing qualifications for pilots, no safety standards for aircraft, and almost no regularly scheduled passenger service anywhere in the United States.  But air travel began to change with the passage of the Air Commerce Act of 1926 which established the bureau of aeronautics in the Commerce Department and provided for the first time for the regulation of civil aviation.

The first federal regulator of aviation was William P. Mac Cracken, Jr. An experienced aviator who had served as a flight instructor during World War I, MacCracken also served on the Chicago Aero Commission and was a member of the board of governors of the National Aeronautical Association (1922-26) before Herbert Hoover appointed him as the first Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Aeronautics in 1926.  MacCracken's Papers were given to the Hoover Library by Mrs. Sallie L. MacCracken Murphy and her daughter, Nell Elizabeth MacCracken, in several installments totaling 45 linear feet between 1971 and 1992.  The most recent of these accretions (9 linear feet) was received in March of 1992 and has proven to be a valuable source of information concerning the expansion of commercial aviation, numerous corporate mergers, the background of the notorious 1930 conference of airline operators and a subsequent Senate investigation.

After helping to draft much needed safety standards and regulations, MacCracken left the Commerce Department in 1929 to resume the practice of law.  He continued to be actively involved in the growth of commercial aviation after leaving the Commerce Department.  Indeed, his role as chairman of the 1930 conference was thrust upon him because his firm had advised and represented so many of the major airlines.  Ultimately, this relationship would make him a prime target of Senate investigators.  The conference had been convened by U.S. Postmaster Walter F. Brown in an effort to get airline operators to agree to a consolidation of the various airmail routes into three or four coast to coast networks operated by the best equipped and most financially stable companies.  This close cooperation between the federal government and the major commercial airlines left Brown and MacCracken vulnerable to charges of favoritism. When a complaint was lodged with the Senate Committee on Ocean Mail and Air Mail Contracts, Chairman Hugo Black agreed to investigate what appeared to be a Republican scandal.

Black opened the hearings in September 1933 and MacCracken soon found himself prominently featured as one of the alleged conspirators.  As part of the Committee's investigation, Black subpoenaed and later seized MacCracken's office files. Major portions of these files were stamped as exhibits and offered in evidence before Black's committee.  The files were eventually returned to MacCracken and comprise virtually all of the papers received from Nell MacCracken in 1992.

Even though investigators found no evidence of collusion or conspiracy in the files or elsewhere, the Roosevelt administration cancelled all air mail contracts with commercial airlines in February 1934.  Henceforth, the airmail would be delivered by the U.S. Army Air Corps.  Despite a valiant effort, the Air Corps soonproved ill-equipped and too disorganized to handle the job.  After twelve fatal accidents and several lesser injuries in less than a month, President Roosevelt allowed the airlines to resume flying the mail in mid-March.

The exercise proved the wisdom of awarding contracts to the most experienced operators; but it had also been very costly. Dozens of airlines executives who had attended the "spoils conference" were illegally blacklisted and, in effect, excluded from employment with any of the major airlines.  A half million dollars of Air Corps equipment was destroyed and twelve lives were lost.  Private operators had been receiving an average of 54 cents per mile to fly the mail in 1933.  The cost of Air Corps operations amounted to $2.21 -- over four times as much!

MacCracken's papers do not contain the full record of the Black Committee's deliberations, but they do provide considerable information on a wide range of issues and aviation related topics during an important period in the development of commercial aviation.  The collection contains a large number of photographs of early planes and equipment.

The collection also contains files concerning MacCracken's law practice after 1929 and his service as secretary [1925-36] of the American Bar Association.
