Biographical/Historical note

Harry C. Shriver (1904-1986) was born near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. He received his J.D. from George Washington University, and went on to serve as a member of the bar of the District of Columbia and of the United States Supreme Court. Shriver was a government lawyer for a number of federal agencies, including the Library of Congress, the Federal Trade Commission, and the War Shipping Administration. His long list of positions held also include General Counsel for the Navy Department, Hearing Examiner for the Federal Power Commission in 1963, and Administrative Law Judge in 1972. The contents of this collection reflect Shriver's legal interest in wartime censorship and propaganda throughout World War II.

Scope and Content of Collection

This collection contains newspaper clippings, codes and regulations, press releases, speeches, pamphlets, reports, and bibliographies collected by Harry C. Shriver during and after World War II. The contents in this collection focus on the topics of wartime censorship, propaganda, free speech, and civil liberties. The clippings cover a large portion of the collection, and describe the creation of the Office of Censorship and government activity concerning censorship and propaganda throughout the war years, from 1941-1947. Other notable documents in the collection include several pamphlets on censorship and war for the general public, wartime regulations for radio, TV broadcasters, and the press, and a copy of the presidential directive establishing the U.S. Office of Censorship. The collection also includes two books authored by Shriver, which are unrelated to World War II, but reflect Shriver's legal career.
