Collection Overview

Biography / History
Thomas Rust Underwood (1898-1956), born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, lived most of his adult life in Lexington, Kentucky, where he worked as a journalist at the Lexington Herald, beginning in 1911. He later served as an editor between 1935 and 1956. He wrote political columns, was active in Kentucky political campaigns, and was chairman of the Democratic State Central and Executive Committee. He was elected to the United States Congress in 1948 and 1950, and named to the Senate in 1951 to fill the vacancy created by the death of Senator Virgil M. Chapman. Underwood held the office of secretary of the Kentucky State Racing Commission for four terms and from 1934 to 1949 he was secretary of the National Association of State Racing Commissioners.
Members of Underwood's family include his parents Thomas Cuthbert Underwood and Fannie Rust Underwood; his wife Eliza M. Piggott Underwood, who also worked as journalist and editor at the Lexington Herald; his son Walter Joseph Piggott Underwood; and his mother-in-law Clare Jolly Piggott.
Scope and Content
The Thomas R. Underwood papers (dated 1857-1967, bulk 1923-1955; 17.4 cubic feet; 39 boxes, 5 items, 2 folders) consist of correspondence, research and legislative files; photographs; grooved audio discs; ephemera; speeches; and printed material that document the journalistic and political activities of the editor of the Lexington Herald and Congressman from central Kentucky. Much of the collection comprises editorial material and correspondence, but also includes materials from Underwood's role in a 1943 Army Orientation Course and 1952 European Mission. There is little documenting his Congressional years as the Washington office files were not returned to Lexington after the 1952 election. The political papers cover Democratic campaigns in Kentucky at various levels from 1923 to 1956. They are strong in material from the gubernatorial campaigns of 1923, 1927, 1935, 1939 and 1947 as well as the congressional campaigns of 1948 and 1952. Broad subjects covered in the research files include Kentucky material, horse racing, tobacco, legislation, and speeches.
Name folders in both the general and political files include correspondence and biographical materials. Among the individuals represented by folders are the following political figures: Alben Barkley, Desha Breckinridge, Virgil Chapman, A. B. Chandler, Earle Clements, James M. Cox, James Farley, Albert Gore, Keen Johnson, Lyndon Johnson, Estes Kefauver, Thruston Morton, Franklin Roosevelt, Richard B. Russell, Jouett Shouse, A. O. Stanley, Harry Truman, and Fred Vinson.
