Biography

Arthur Edson Blair Moody was born in New Haven, Connecticut, on February 13, 1902, the son of Arthur Edson Blair and Julia (Downey) Moody. He attended public schools in Providence, Rhode Island, and was graduated from Brown University in 1922, with a B.A. degree in economics. Following graduation from college, he taught and coached for one year at the Moses Brown School in Providence, and in 1923 became an employee of the Detroit News. At first a sportswriter, Moody afterward covered the Detroit City Hall as a reporter during the mayoralty administration of Frank Murphy.

In 1933 Blair Moody became a correspondent in the Washington office of the News, writing the column "The Lowdown on Washington". He also wrote for the Boston Globe, and was correspondent for Barron's from 1934 to 1948 and for the North American Newspaper Alliance since 1936. During World War II Moody served as a war correspondent in North Africa, Italy, Iran, and Britain, and after the war visited the Marshall Plan and North Atlantic Treaty countries to report on economic progress there. Beginning in 1946 he moderated the radio and television program Meet Your Congress, and from 1944 to 1945 he was economic consultant for the Committee for Economic Development.

Appointed to the United States Senate on April 23, 1951, by Michigan's Democratic Governor G. Mennen Williams, Blair Moody filled the vacancy created by the death of Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg on April 18, 1951. The late Senator's term would have ended January 3,1953.

On taking his oath of office the new Senator indicated that in 1952 he would be a candidate for a full six-year term. Stating that he hitherto had not belonged to any party, he said he became a Democrat on the day of his appointment to the Senate by Governor Williams. On becoming a Senator, Moody resigned from the Detroit News, but continued for a time his weekly radio program.

In the Senate Moody was named to the Senate Banking and Currency Committee and the Committee on Expenditures in the Executive Departments, for which he was deemed well suited because of his background in economics. In July 1951, two months after taking office, Moody was named to head the subcommittee of the Senate Small Business Committee, set up to protect the interests of small business in the defense program. He immediately announced that as its first project the subcommittee would study the problem of steel cutbacks in the automobile industry, steel shortages among small businessmen, and unemployment traceable to plant dispersals. On the subject of controls against inflation the Michigan legislator took a firm stand in supporting the Administration's drive to strengthen and extend controls. In August Moody was appointed to a special subcommittee of the Senate Banking Committee, which conducted hearings on a proposal to restore the Government's power to set slaughtering quotas for livestock.

Moody sought election to the Senate in his own right, but was defeated by Charles E. Potter. In 1954 he again sought the Democratic nomination for the Senate seat held by Homer Ferguson. He died unexpectedly while campaigning July 20, 1954.

Blair Moody was the author of a book Boom or Bust (1941), a discussion of the economic aspects of World War II, in which he proposed a constructive program to prevent inflation and postwar economic collapse. Moody was a member of the Gridiron Club, the organization of Washington correspondents. He also belonged to the National Press Club, the Overseas Writers Club, and the University Club in Washington, DC; to the Detroit Club and to the Cammarian Club in Providence, Rhode Island.

Blair Moody on June 6, 1925, married Mary Williamson, by whom he had one son, Arthur Edson Blair, Jr. His two younger sons, Christopher Sorenson and Robert Orten, were born to his second wife, the former Ruth Curtis Amadon, whom he married on September 14,1940.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The Blair Moody collection documents the career of a Washington-based newspaper correspondent and columnist and United States Senator. The collection covers the period 1928 to 1954, though the bulk of materials date since the mid-1940s. Much of the collection pertains to that period of time when Moody was in the Senate or was running for election to the Senate, although his newspaper career is also well documented. The collection has been divided into the following series: Biographical; Correspondence; Personal/Family; Newspaper Career; Gridiron Club; Senatorial Papers; Speeches; Scrapbooks; Sound Recordings; and Visual Materials.

Correspondence [series]

The Correspondence series, approximately twelve linear feet, relates primarily to the period when Moody was US Senator (1951-1952). The letters concern Senate business, arrangements for speeches and radio appearances, and letters of congratulations and thanks. Much of the correspondence prior to his appointment as Senator by Governor Williams in 1951 relates to his personal affairs, but also contains much commentary on Detroit and Michigan politics, his trips to Europe as a war correspondent and especially on economic development plans in the immediate post-war period, and of course the Washington scene.

For the few months of his Senate appointment the bulk of Moody's papers increased markedly. Unfortunately much of it consisted of routine correspondence with constituents and others about legislation, speech requests, and invitations. Much of the incoming constituent correspondence was apparently not saved. There is considerable correspondence with G. Mennen Williams and Neil Staebler about political matters and his campaign of 1952, and with other senators about transmittal of legislation, committees, etc.

There is very little material on the period after Moody's defeat in 1952, and very little on the campaign of 1954 except for files on Senator Charles E. Potter and his record.

To aid the researcher, a separate index of correspondents in the Moody Collection has been compiled and is appended to this finding aid.

Senatorial Papers [series]

The Senate Career series includes press releases, committee materials, and a scattering of campaign papers. As Moody was in the Senate for a brief period, the files are somewhat thin on information pertaining to current events and legislation. Though somewhat small, Moody's months in the Senate can also be documented through his scrapbook collection, his collection of speeches and transcripts of his radio/television public affairs program, and through the sound recordings of speeches and radio programs.

Sound Recordings [series]

The Sound Recordings include both sound tapes and sound disks. Beginning in 1946 and continuing through the first few months of 1954, Moody was moderator of "Meet Your Congress, a weekly public affairs program which appeared first on radio and then in the early 1950s on television. Moody liked to refer to the program as a capsule of the best of Congressional debates on the current issues of the day. His guests each week included members of both the House and the Senate as well as an occasional member of the Executive branch or the private sector. The collection of tapes for the program is unfortunately incomplete. There is one tape that can be dated to 1951; the rest date from 1953 to 1954. Of the tapes in the collection, Moody moderated all the programs except for the last three months when his responsibilities were taken over by fellow journalists, Ernest K. Lindley, Charles Lucey, and Roscoe Drummond. The "Meet Your Congress" series of tapes are all 7 inches and play at 7 1/2 ips. A smaller part of the Moody tape collection consists of broadcasts of his "This is Washington" program which was the means he used to report to his constituents on his activities as senator during 1951-52. The collection includes four of these tapes, all from 1951. They are 5 inches and play at 7 1/2 ips. There is finally a speech given by Moody at Laurium Union Hall, October 16, 1952. Moody was then in the midst of what would then be an unsuccessful campaign for reelection.

The sound disk subseries dates earlier than the sound tapes and include Moody radio broadcasts from 1940 and 1946-1950.
