Correspondence, writings, reports, memoranda, printed material, and miscellanea documenting the personal and professional life of George H.E. Smith, an author, educator at Yale University, director of the League of Nations, Non-Partisan Association of Detroit, Michigan, and secretary, staff director, and consultant to the U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee (1944-1962). The papers document Smith's work for the Republican Policy Committee through memoranda, correspondence, handbooks, articles, newsletters, and printed material. These same materials were distributed to Republican senators for use in speeches, position papers, and political campaigns. The Republican Party position on such issues as domestic policy, economic policy, elections, foreign relations, and political parties is detailed. The workings of the Committee itself can be charted through the minutes of meetings, correspondence, and subject files, as can the development of the Committee staff. Writings and general correspondence focus on Smith's literary work on topics including: national politics, political parties, and domestic and foreign policies. Charles A. Beard, James Couzens, John Danaher, Roman Gorski, and Lindsay Rogers are primary correspondents. Additional material documents Smith's financial work as director of the Detroit, Michigan, League of Nations office, his teaching career at Yale University, and his personal life.
