Charles P. Neill Papers

The Charles Patrick Neill Papers consist of seven manuscript boxes and one reel of microfilm from the years 1893–1956. His personal papers include correspondence, tax information (1940–1946), clippings and a scrapbook (1893–1903). Neill's professional papers contain correspondence (1904–1942) written while performing one of his various positions as professor, arbitrator, labor commissioner and so on.

Included with these papers are:

  • Class notes and publications from his teaching career at the University of Notre Dame and the Catholic University of America
  • Legal papers regarding various grievances brought by workmen against their bosses and the charges brought against Neill when he became Commissioner of Labor Statistics
  • News clippings and other printed material dealing with his work for the Department of Labor
  • Scrapbooks on microfilm concerning his Labor Department activities and his membership on the Railway Commission

However, Richard G. Balfe, notes that Neill destroyed most of his personal papers during the last year of his life; little remains apart from some press clippings and letters of congratulations from friends.

Famous quotes containing the word papers:

    Sitting along the bed’s edge, where
    You curled the papers from your hair,
    Or clasped the yellow soles of feet
    In the palms of both soiled hands.
