Biographical Note

Lincoln Hutchinson (1866–1940) was born in San Francisco, California. He graduated from the University of California-Berkeley in 1889 and received in M.A. in economics from Harvard University. He held many positions during his career: professor of economics and commerce at Berkeley; dean of the College of Letters and Science at Berkeley; professor of economics and sociology at Stanford University; consular attaché in South America and Europe; director of relief in the American Relief Administration in Russia, Germany and Czechoslovakia after World War I; and technical advisor in Czechoslovakia under Jan Masaryk.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Lincoln Hutchinson papers consist of correspondence, speeches and writings, travel documents, and American Relief Administration office records. His writings include “American Engineers in Russia,” two different essays in which Hutchinson describes technical assistance provided by American engineers to the Soviet Union. The travel documents series includes his passport from 1920–1922, when he was in Europe working for the A.R.A.. Finally, the American Relief Administration office records series contains a comprehensive report on food conditions in post-World War I Germany (1923). It also contains the constitution of the A.R.A., proposed amendments to the constitution of the A.R.A., Hutchinson’s lobbying to merge the A.R.A. with other relief programs, as well as his personal reminiscences of Herbert Hoover, "The Chief," as an individual and as an administrator.
