Summary
  • The papers of Hutchinson are divided between his political activities and legal career. The former consists chiefly of correspondence and speeches, and documents Hutchinson's career as protegé, then critic and opponent of the "Byrd machine." The bulk of the papers are concerned with the battles of Virginia liberal Democrats against machine politics. The chief topics are Hutchinson's senatorial campaign in 1945, the gubernatorial and senatorial races of Francis Pickens Miller in 1949 & 1952, the Committee for Democracy in Virginia, 1947, the Truman Barkley Straight Ticket committee, 1948, and Hutchinson's nomination to the Federal Communications Commission in 1949. Presidential elections from 1932 to 1960 are represented as are Virginia political topics of the 30s and 40s such as election reform, poll taxes, sales taxes, public schools, and the strengthening of local government against the machine
