Biographical Information:

Theodore "Ted" Roosevelt Ellsworth’s activities as a health plan administrator and consultant, union representative, labor management arbitrator, educator, and activist for the aging ranged over a period of more than 45 years. Ellsworth was active in the Motion Picture Costumers Union Local 705 (I.A.T.S.E.), became the chapter's first President, and started the Costumer newsletter in 1941 for the benefit of members serving in WWII.
Ellsworth participated in local 705’s first negotiating committee, and served as Business Agent for local 705 from 1942 to 1952. Ellsworth was not a communist, but he opposed union-busting policy, and testified under Congressional immunity before the Kearns Committee. After helping to form the Motion Picture Health and Welfare Fund, Ellsworth became its first administrator and served from 1952-1958.
In the 1940s, John Anson Ford appointed Ellsworth to the Advisory Board on Aging (later the Los Angeles County Commission on Aging) where he served into the 1950s, including two terms as president. In 1957, he helped organize a congressional hearing in Los Angeles led by Congressman Jimmy Roosevelt that focused on problems of older workers.
Ellsworth was one of the first to receive UCLA’s Certificate in Industrial Relations in 1950. In 1958, he joined the Center for Labor Research and Education within the Institute of Industrial Relations where he functioned as Administrator of Public Programs and Associate Administrator of Labor Programs. From 1950 to 1958, Ellsworth taught UC extension classes in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, and Santa Barbara on labor history, health, welfare and pension plans, grievances, and arbitration. In the Fall of 1963, he also taught a University of California extension course at Roosevelt Jr. High in San Diego, titled Health, Welfare and Pension Plans.
Ellsworth was a member of the California Citizen’s Advisory Committee on Aging, President of the International Senior Citizens Association, President of the Senior Coalition Political Action Committee, co-founder of the Los Angeles County Affiliated Agencies on Aging, and Chairman of the Steering Committee, Alliance for Health Care Cost Containment. Ted was also Vice-Chairman of the California Commission on Aging, a member of the House Conference Committee on Aging, and was a representative to the 1981 White House Conference on Aging. He died of heart failure on April 26, 1996 at the age of 90.

Scope and Contents

The Theodore "Ted" R.

Series I, Manuscripts, Speeches, and Personal Papers, contains one folder dedicated to an extensive collection of biographical information in the form of resumes, news clippings, and lists of programs presented at UCLA from 1958-1962.
