Biographical note Government official and newspaperman, Creed Carter Black, was a native of Harlan, Kentucky. He had a long journalism career with newspapers in Paducah, Kentucky; Chicago; Nashville; Savannah; and Wilmington, North Carolina before joining President Richard Nixon's administration in 1969. In the administration he served as Assistant Secretary for Legislation under Health, Education, and Welfare Secretaries Robert Finch and Elliott Richardson. He left the government in August 1970 to become editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer. In 1977, he became the chairman of the board and publisher of the Lexington Herald-Leader. Scope and Contents note The Creed Carter Black papers relate to Black's service as Assistant Secretary for Legislation in the Department of Health, Education and Welfare from 1969-1970. There are three major units of files in this collection: Chronological, Reading, and News Items. The News Items give a comprehensive account of the activities of the department as reported in the nation's leading newspapers. Other files include appointment books, a legislative briefing book prepared for Secretary Richardson, miscellaneous correspondence, photographs, policies, reports, speeches, and weekly memos to and from the White House. Among topics covered are emergency school aid, general organization and operation, grants, annual budget of HEW, hearings and legislation, House and Senate hearings, humor, political breakdown by offices, several files on student unrest, and testimony before House and Senate committees. Roughly three-fourths of these materials consist of correspondence and departmental policy papers. These papers are of interest for the insight they give into the workings of the first Nixon administration, and the legislative relations of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare in particular. They show the relationship of partisan political considerations and the development of public policy, particularly in regard to the Nixon administration's responses to student unrest in the late 1960s.
