COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

This collection includes the recordings and transcripts of interviews with Jonathan Daniels, Mark Ethridge, Lawrence Cramer and Robert Weaver, conducted by Frances Hardin.
The interviews were conducted in an attempt to uncover the factors which contributed to the enunciation of a policy of fair employment during World War II. Specifically, it is concerned with the Roosevelt Administration's attempts at direct government intervention by means of Executive Orders 8802 and 9346 into the hiring process in order to prevent discrimination against workers on the basis of race, creed, color or national origin.
These executive orders established and re-established, respectively, the President's Committee on Fair Employment Practice (generally referred to as the FEPC). The interviews collected here were conducted by Frances Hardin with individuals who were critical to the decision-making which affected the nation's policy on non- discriminatory hiring.
