BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Warren J. Vinton received his A.B. from the University of Michigan in 1911. At age 21 he became secretary and director of the Vinton Company, then the largest general building contractors in Detroit. During World War I he served as an assistant attaché at the U.S. Embassy in Paris. In 1928 he went to New York and worked for the American Association for Social Security, which did the groundwork for the eventual adoption of social security legislation. He also did graduate work in economics and statistics at Columbia University. In 1934 Vinton was appointed a field research supervisor with the newly formed Federal Housing Administration, where he developed the basic research techniques used in the first housing census done by the Census Bureau in 1940. When the Resettlement Administration was established in 1935, he was put in charge of economic and sociological studies for greenbelt towns and helped select the locations for three of them. From 1935-37 he assisted Senator Robert F. Wagner in drafting housing legislation which became the Wagner Act of 1937, and he later headed the social and economic studies which led to further public housing legislation adopted in 1949. He then became assistant commissioner of the new Public Housing Administration, where he remained until his retirement in 1957. He then became mayor of Somerset, Maryland, and retired in April, 1968.
Vinton belonged to, or was a board member of, the Washington Housing Association, the National Housing Conference, the American Society of Planning Officials, and the American Institute of Planners.

COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

Consists primarily of correspondence, memoranda, telegrams, minutes, reports, pamphlets, programs, newsletters, membership lists, reprints, speeches, press releases, broadsides, clippings, photographs, and copies of legislative hearings and bills documenting Vinton's active role in designing and implementing federal housing policies from 1935 to 1957. Most are administrative records produced during his tenure as Chief of Research in the Suburban Resettlement Division of the Resettlement Administration (1935-1937), Chief Economist and Planning Officer of the U.S. Housing Authority (1937-1949), and First Assistant Commissioner of the Public Housing Administration (1949-1957). Also included are records of the Central Housing Committee (1935-1942), on which Vinton represented the Resettlement Administration and later the U.S. Housing Authority, and of the Advisory Committee of the Bureau of the Census for the 1940 Federal Census of Housing. Papers concern many aspects of governmental activity in the public housing area, including low-income housing, defense housing, housing for the elderly, racial policy in public housing, and particularly the development and passage of housing legislation and congressional investigations of federal housing practices.
In addition to Vinton's own work, the papers document the work and opinions of many other planners, architects, housing experts, economists, federal administrators, and politicians, including Charles Abrams, Tracy B. Auger, Edmund N. Bacon, Catherine Bauer, Russell Van Nest Black, John B. Blandford, Jr., Lawrence N. Bloomberg, Walter H. Blucher, Ernest J. Bohn, Harry F. Byrd, Henry S. Churchill, Jacob L.

Tugwell, Sir Raymond Unwin, Robert F. Wagner, Jesse R. Wolcott, Edith E. Wood, Elizabeth Wood, Coleman Woodbury, and Wilson W. Wyatt.
