BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH

James Russell Wiggins was born in 1903, and grew up in the rural Midwest, in southern Minnesota near the South Dakota border. His agricultural roots and the circumstances of the national economy affected his entire life. High school dramatics, the school newspaper and debating society also set his path. He took as his role model Rudyard Kipling, the talented and well-spoken Englishman who started his journalistic career at the age of seventeen and went on to become an important writer as well as an influence on British political history. [High school term paper, 1918]

As a reporter and editor of a rural newspaper during the depression years Wiggins developed a keen interest in the pressures placed upon politicians in setting economic policies. He witnessed the debates and disturbances caused by expanding influences of trade unions, and he vigorously supported the agricultural reconstruction programs of the 1930’s. He wrote editorials, a daily column, and “occasional verse,” and he began his life-long habit of reading a book every day. He went to Washington, D.C. as a correspondent for the St. Paul newspapers in 1933, and landed in the center of the very controversies he wrote about. He made friends and contacts, and he developed a new and passionate love for American history.

Five years later he returned to St. Paul as the managing editor of the Dispatch and the Press. He renewed his vigorous quest for honest and open government and developed uncompromising standards for his reporters. He wrote and spoke on behalf of Allied resistance to Hitler, and became an active supporter of American aid to the Allies. A month after Pearl Harbor he asked to be drafted, and at the age of 39 was given a commission in the Army-Air Force Intelligence Service. Wiggins served for four years in Washington, North Africa, Florence and England, and returned to St. Paul in 1946. He had made a new circle of influential friends and had developed a deep distrust of the Soviet Union.

After returning to his position as managing editor for the St. Paul Dispatch, Wiggins was fervent in his quest for access to public meetings and total freedom of the press. “I believe that what God permits to happen we have an obligation to print.” [Letter to Alan McIntosh, 1946.] B.H. Ridder, owner and publisher of the Dispatch and wartime isolationist, did not agree with such a forceful declaration and fired him. Arthur Ochs Sulzburger, owner and publisher of the New York Times immediately hired him, but the position reported to Sulzburger and provided no personal forum for Wiggins’ ideas. Within a year Phillip Graham asked Wiggins to accept an editorial position at the Washington Post.

For the next twenty years Wiggins made connections and influenced public policy in Washington, D.C. Through both his management style and voracious appetite for information he used the Post as a forum for his opinions and transformed an ordinary newspaper into an important force on the national scene. He was an authoritarian and uncompromising boss who made demands on his employee’s work schedules and personal habits. He insisted on complete honesty and accuracy. (In later years Wiggins would say that even though the information was essential for the public good, because the papers were stolen, he would not have published the Watergate Papers as his successor Ben Bradlee had.) He took a lead in the civil rights movement of the 1960’s, and never bowed to political pressure to compromise the news. In 1959 Wiggins became president of the Association of Newspaper Editors (A.S.N.E.). He also belonged to and served as president of the Gridiron Club, served on the board of the National Press Club, and belonged to several private social clubs in Washington. He was instrumental in obtaining passage of the Freedom of Information Act in 1966, and was honored by receiving both the Zenger and Lovejoy journalism awards.

Wiggins remained a life-long cold war warrior - he was a friend and supporter of President Johnson and the administration’s Viet Nam policy. As Wiggins was about to retire from the Post in 1968, Johnson named him Ambassador to the United Nations for the remaining four months of the term.

Wiggins received many honors and awards, including ten honorary college degrees. He was president of the American Antiquarian Society from 1970 until 1977, and beginning in 1983, sponsored an annual lecture at the Society in his name, the “Lecture in the History of the Book in American Culture.” He was a Freemason, a member of the Boston Athenaeum, the Massachusetts Historical Society, and several Maine historical societies.

The last thirty years of his life were dedicated to “quality of life” issues for the state of Maine, and particularly for the coastal downeast area. During these years he turned an ordinary weekly, the Ellsworth American, into an award-winning newspaper. He maintained rigorous control over everything from editorial content to advertising accounts, and he was formidable in his pursuit of local government accountability. Unfortunately, the two issues that consumed years of his life, Indian land claims and the state lottery, were enacted despite his intense opposition.

In his retirement years (perhaps after his eightieth birthday) Wiggins continued to rage against the lottery and gambling. He corresponded with old friends from the Antiquarian Society about his belief in the Jefferson of the “old school” (no Sally Hemings affair), fought a vigorous battle with Maine government officials over expungement laws, began a new interest in ecological issues, and continued to respond to virtually all of his mail with politeness and directness. He thoroughly enjoyed friendships with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He corresponded with them, gave advice and occasional financial support.

Throughout his life Wiggins remained in close contact with his Minnesota family, friends and journalist colleagues. Mabel Wiggins was the genealogist, but J.R. Wiggins also placed great importance on “roots.” In 1979 the Ellsworth American published Mrs. Wiggins’ Begats: A Chronicle of the McMillan, Preston, Wiggins and Binford Families. Her nine-page biography of her husband begins on page 316. The book is also useful for identifying many of Wiggins’ relatives and correspondents. Russell and Mabel Wiggins were married for seventy-three years and they had four children - William, Geraldine, John and Patricia. Mabel Wiggins died in 1990, Bill died in 1992, Gerry died in 1994, and Jack died in 1996. Patricia (Mrs. Thomas Schroth) survived her father.

On November 20, 2000, the Washington Post included three articles on Wiggins, an obituary by J.Y. Smith, a remembrance by Katharine Graham, and the lead editorial. Smith called him “an America primitive” who defined all issues as either right or wrong. Graham remembered him as a seven days-a-week “blood and guts” editor and “a thoughtful and sensitive hawk.” Senator William Cohen called him a man of the greatest intellectual curiosity, a man of civility with a gift for classical rhetoric. The Ellsworth American carried a special four-page supplement to his memory.

Collected newspaper articles, book reviews and editorials

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The collection is chiefly comprised of James Russell Wiggins’ correspondence. From his earliest years as an editor he made two carbons of his outgoing letters, one for the “Reader File” and one to be filed alphabetically with the corresponding incoming mail. Occasionally, a third copy was placed into an appropriate issue file. Until his later years, the 1990’s, he dictated virtually all of his letters.

The files are somewhat indiscriminate in their contents, containing such diverse items as thank you notes, letters to politicians and newspaper editors, poems, schedule arrangements, issue discussions with U.S. Supreme Court judges and lobbyists, family correspondence, and inter-office memoranda. The majority of correspondence is issue-related, but the alphabetical files of in-coming correspondence contain clippings, postcards, invitations, brochures, membership materials, informational material, job applications and the responses, copies of speeches, schedules, magazines, “letters to the editor,” and diatribes from genuine cranks. Every response he wrote, from declining an invitation to a three-page lecture on American foreign policy, Wiggins’ style was exceedingly formal and polite.

The collection provides a first-hand look at American political history from the early years of the Great Depression, through social and agricultural reform, through isolationism and developing support for the Allies in World War II, through post-war restructuring and the business boom, through the cold war with communism, through the civil rights movement, and the emergence of Washington, D.C. as an international capital city. James Russell Wiggins was an integral part in all of this, not as a politician, but as a man capable of molding the minds of others. He was especially interested in economic theory (O.R. Strackbein, Eugene Rostow, Milton Eisenhower) and military intelligence (Harold E. Cross, Brockway McMillan, Harry Tudor) In the second part of his life, as a country gentleman, his papers continue to reflect a self-determined role in the politics and decision-making of the state of Maine, and a continuing voice on national issues.

During the four years (1942-1946) Wiggins spent in the U.S. Army-Air Force Intelligence Service he not only saved all his training notes, manuals and maps, but also his tests. He retained his notes as well as his correspondence during the years in Europe.

In the Washington years, Wiggins wrote about national and international politics in his editorials (McCarthyism, the Soviet Union, European redevelopment, the United Nations), but his book reviews and special articles concerned American history (the Bill of Rights, Thomas Jefferson), ethical issues (treason, honest government), and a major interest in freedom of the press and access to information. He knew and corresponded with the editors of many of the country’s leading newspapers and he was very active in professional journalism societies. (See the box list and folder listings, as well as the index, for individual correspondents, organizations, and subject headings from 1936 through 1984.)

From 1969 to 1994, Wiggins’ correspondence reflects a concentration on rural issues and his life as a gentleman farmer. Correspondence and background material from the 1970’s is dominated by the state lottery debate, a series of environmental issues, and the profound question of reparations and/or land for the Indian tribes of Maine. Wiggins also became embroiled in local (Ellsworth) union politics and was sued by the teamsters. He corresponded with every Maine governor and university president, as well as attorneys general, agriculture secretaries, natural resources department heads, and many people familiar with Indian affairs, especially Ronald Banks. Wiggins wrote editorials about everything from black flies to license plates, geese to garbage collection, and of course, taxes. There are amusing short notes from local friends, including E.B. White, Roy Barrette, Bill Caldwell, Brooks Hamilton, and Winthrop Libby. His personal correspondence included poems, newspaper clippings and reading advice to such friends as Walter Cronkite, Warren Burger, Al Haakenson, Robert Estabrook, and Fletcher Knebel. He also maintained a keen interest in United States military and foreign policies, strongly supported the Strategic Defense Initiative (“Star Wars”) and developed late-in-life friendships with Casper Weinberger and Zbigniew Brezinski. Summertime correspondence includes references to the Pot and Kettle Club, and sailing on his beloved Amity.

Though Wiggins lived until 2000, the collection of his papers abruptly ends in 1994. There is no record that Wiggins made any arrangements for the disposition of his papers from the last six years of his life. His library was partially sold, but an appraiser’s inventory remains, as well as thousands of inventory cards for his books. Three major universities, as well as the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library at the University of Texas, asked Wiggins for his collected papers – the universities of Minnesota, Maryland, and Wisconsin. His daughter and granddaughter, Patricia Schroth and Jennifer Schroth, have added photographs and other memorabilia from his study to the collection.

The collection indices reveal the extent and duration of Wiggins’ correspondence with friends, colleagues, employees, business associates, relatives, and government officials. The first index includes names of individuals, organizations, and subjects. The second index is a grid listing the years and numbers of letters with names of correspondents.

SERIES IV. Maine and the Ellsworth American, 1974-1994

Arranged alphabetically within chronological years. Each year contains an alphabetical file series, a reader file, and several named or subject files. The alphabetical files are frequently inaccurate; for example, in 1976, a request from Harry Middleton at the LBJ Library is found under “L.” Letters to politicians are frequently addressed to their aides. (Ted O’Meara and Robert Tyrer worked for Senator William Cohen.) Speeches are sometimes found under “S,” and “I” is used as an “Information file.” (O’Meara is filed under “M” but O’Leary is under “O.”)

[NOTE: There have been no changes or rearrangement of the misfiled correspondence.]

The files are filled with many unexpected essays, lectures and personal notes. The following are only examples:

In 1980, there is an unsigned 4p. letter in shorthand. In 1981, Wiggins began to personally manage the delinquent account notices for the Ellsworth American. In 1982, there is a letter to Walter Cronkite on the art of grandparenting. In 1983, filed under “L” there is a 5p. manuscript on the history of newspapers in the United States. In 1984, in “C” there is an unpublished essay by Denis Carrigan on “Stuart Little’s Father at 85,” and in “E” an essay for the Washington Post entitled “The Real State of the Union.” In 1984, “B” - 3 copies of “Grassroots Editor,” and in “W” a birthday poem to his friend Virginia Whitney. In 1985, Roy Barrette (“B”) writes an 8p. missive to the Hon. J. Russwiggi on “Noctambulating,” and Ed Gonzales (“G) writes “On the Death of E.B. White.” In 1986, a nine page biography of Wiggins by Moline in “M,” and “The Secret Life of Stewart Menzies” in “C.” In 1987, a letter to Paul Nitze reminiscing about square dancing in “N,” and a hand written note to Warren Burger, in “B.” In file “T” there is an 1859 letter to “Friend Snow” from Winfield S. Greene, and in “W” a poem by Katherine White written as a memorial to her husband, E.B. White. In 1990 (”S”), Peter Samartino wrote music for one of Wiggins’ poems.

In 1992, Wiggins wrote to Richard Harwood, a reporter for the Washington Post,

“[News]papers are not being prepared by members of the lower class or read by members of the lower class. This seems to be a sure formula for losing a piece of the market, and it certainly diminishes the utility of the daily press as a medium for infusing the population with a core of social and moral values.” In the same year Wiggins also contributed to the Weinberger Defense Fund and recommended The End of History and The Road to Serfdom to his friends. In the “W” file there are two Teddy Roosevelt campaign cards sent to him from Esther Wood. Throughout the 1992 files there are poems, and an exchange of letters with the Reverend Rob McCall.
