Biographical NoteReturn to Top

John Patrick Williams was born in Helena on October 30, 1937. He attended Montana State University (now The University of Montana--Missoula) from 1956-1957 and received his bachelor's degree from the University of Denver in 1961. He served in the Colorado and Montana National Guards from 1961 to 1969 and taught high school in Butte from 1963 to 1969. In 1966, he was elected to the Montana State House of Representative for the 1967 session. He became executive assistant to U. S. Representative John Melcher of Montana in 1969. He maintained that position during John Melcher's first term, 1969-1971. He was a member of the Montana Governor's Employment and Training Council from 1972-1978 and a member of the Montana Reapportionment Commission for 1972-1973.

Williams was first elected to the U.S. House of Representative in 1978 and served the people of Montana in the House from 1979 to 1997. In his last two terms, 1993-1997, he represented the entire state after Montana's previous two congressional districts were combined due to national reapportionment. In 1985, he was appointed as deputy whip of the House Democratic Leadership. He chaired several committees, including the Higher Education Committee. During his tenure in the U. S. House of Representatives, Williams served on the Education, Labor, Agriculture, Natural Resources, and House Budget committees. His tenure in office is noted for his activism on behalf of education, libraries, Native American tribal sovereignty, the National Endowments for the Arts and for the Humanities, worker's concerns, wilderness protection, and environmental integrity for the future of the Western states.

Williams was especially involved in wilderness issues. During the late 1970's President Carter requested a second review of the Federally owned roadless lands throughout the United States. The Forest Service in conjunction with other Agencies completed a comprehensive Roadless Area Evaluation and Review (RARE II) and recommended that these lands be placed in timber production, multiple use or wilderness. The ultimate discussion was the responsibility of the congressional delegations of each state. Most States, having few acres of roadless land, quickly drafted, introduced and passed legislation determining the fate of the land within their borders.

By the mid 1980's Montana was one of the handful of states yet to complete the process. This lack of completion was due to the number of acres being considered and the disagreement among the legislators concerning the percentage of land to be allocated for each purpose. Early bills attempted to "release" lands to the discretion of the Forest Service as to the use. These were quickly defeated by Representatives from other States. They reasoned that such vast amounts of majestic land, in the national interest, deserved closer attention. The delegates of Montana realized that a minimum amount of wilderness would need to be associated with any successful Bill. In 1984 a Bill was agreed upon by the legislators from Montana, passing both the House and Senate, this Bill would have set aside close to 1.4 million acres of wilderness with the remainder of Montana's 6.5 million acres placed in multiple use or timber production. This Bill subsequently was vetoed by President Reagan. Congressman Pat Williams continued to introduce his version of a wilderness Bill, reflecting an equal amount of wilderness protection, until his retirement in 1996. As of 1997, Montana was the only state which has failed to resolve this issue.

After his retirement, Williams moved to Missoula, joined the Political Science faculty at The University of Montana--Missoula, and became a senior fellow at the Center for the Rocky Mountain West.

This series includes the texts of speeches presented before bodies such as the Montana Senate and House, the National Congress of American Indians, the American Bar Association, the National Community Action Foundation, and his responses to selected weekly Presidential radio addresses. The Congressional Record section includes photocopies of Williams' statements from that publication; these were gathered, copied, and listed by Williams' staff, and there is an index by topic and date at the beginning of each folder. There are a few Special Order Statements.

The series is subdivided into three subseries: Speeches, Congressional Record, and Special order statements. Speeches are arranged chronologically, except for two folders, "Forest Speeches," and "Toast to Texas," and a few undated speeches; Congressional Record is arranged chronologically by congressional session number; and special order statements are chronological.

Series VIII:  Wilderness , 1979-1980 Return to Top

6.0 linear feet

This series contains legislative materials, correspondence, maps, reports and printed material. They represent the attempts by Pat Williams and Staff Member Art Noonan to define areas within the borders of Montana that should receive wilderness protection. Many materials deal directly with the needs of Montana communities and industries throughout the wilderness designation process.

Included is information from early wilderness debates through the development of the RARE II process and specific wilderness boundaries. Much of the material deals with specific Senate bills and House resolutions, such as S. 1696, S. 2790, S. 489, H.R. 6001, H.R. 2090, H.R. 2473. Additionally, this series contains materials on related issues such as geothermal protection (in H.R. 3359 and H.R. 723, the Old Faithful Protection Act), a proposed repeal of the 1872 mining law (H.R. 918), the Northern Rockies Ecosystems Protection Act, the Nez Perce National Historical Park (H.R. 2032 and S. 550), as well as some materials addressing general land and resource management of public lands. These general public lands materials are housed within the Wilderness Series both as a reflection of the context within which they were received and the subtle distinction between formal wilderness designation and broad wilderness concepts among many private citizens and journalists.

This series lacks an original cohesive organization schema, as it arrived from Williams' offices in total disarray. During 2003 processing, when possible, materials were organized according to Senate Bill or House Resolution number. Other materials could not be directly associated to a Congressional action; thus, were organized and identified by common geographic designation.Additional wilderness materials reside in Series I and II and are identified by their specific Congressional actions or geographic designations. During 2003 processing a sequence of photographs documenting a wilderness designation protest organized by Montanans for Multiple Use was transferred to Series XI: Photographs.
