Historical NoteReturn to Top

John Willard Marriott (1900-1985) was born to Hyrum Willard Marriott and Ellen Morris at Marriott Settlement, Utah, September 17, 1900. He was the second of eight children and spent his early years helping with the family sheep ranching business. In 1918 he left for Connecticut and Vermont to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

When he returned from his mission he attended Weber College from 1920 to 1922, and later enrolled at the University of Utah. In order to pay for his education, he worked during the summers selling woolen goods to lumberjacks in the Pacific Northwest. He graduated from the University of Utah in 1926, and spent the following year teaching English and working as treasurer of Weber College.

Mr. Marriott purchased the rights to sell Allen and Wright (A & W) root beer in Washington, D.C., and on May 20, 1927, he opened a root beer stand with Hugh Colton. A few weeks later he traveled back to Salt Lake City to marry Alice Sheets, June 9, 1927, in the Salt Lake Temple.

After the wedding, they returned immediately to Washington, D.C., and a few weeks later they opened their second shop. By winter they realized that they would need something other than cold drinks in order to keep the business running. However, it was prohibited to sell food in A & W franchises. The Marriotts received permission from Allen and Wright to add hot food to the menu. They decided to specialize in Mexican and Southwestern food, and the chef at the Mexican embassy graciously supplied them with a few recipes. Because the Marriotts were worried about the risk of losing their patronage if they closed the shop to make the changes needed for food service, they made preparations ahead of time so that it took only one night to convert the store. They finished just in time to open the next morning as The Hot Shoppe.

In 1928 Hugh Colton decided to sell his half of the business and return to Utah. The Marriotts purchased the other half of the business for $5,000.00 and they became sole owners of The Hot Shoppe.

The 1930s were a time of tremendous growth for the company and the Marriott family. The Marriotts' first child, J. Willard Marriott, Jr., was born in 1932. By 1934 the corporation had added drive-in restaurants with "running boys" that provided customers with in-car service. In addition, the Marriotts had pioneered the world's first in-flight airline catering service. In 1939 the Marriotts' second son, Richard Edwin Marriott, was born.

Much of the company's expansion efforts came to fruition in the 1940s and 1950s. The corporation built several new restaurants and opened numerous industrial, defense plant, and school cafeterias. A corporate recipe card system was developed and a test kitchen was built to standardize food preparation and portions. In 1957 the corporation expanded into the hotel industry with the first Marriott Motor Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.

The company continued to grow under Mr. Marriott's control until 1964, when he turned over the company presidency to his son, J. Willard Marriott, Jr. Mr. Marriott continued to be heavily involved with the corporation as chairman of the board.

However, corporate affairs did not wholly absorb Mr. Marriott's interest during these years. He was actively involved in religious, academic, political, and community organizations throughout his life.

He played an important part in the administration of the affairs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) in Washington, D.C. In 1948 he was called to be president of the Washington Stake, a position he held until 1957, when he was appointed chairman of the General Chaplains Committee of the Mormon Church. He was actively involved with the Nauvoo Restoration Project and had a keen interest in the archaeology of the Book of Mormon. He also was instrumental in raising money for many building funds and served as an important liaison to church headquarters in Salt Lake City for the construction and dedication of the Washington, D.C. Temple.

The Marriotts retained close ties with academic institutions in Utah. In 1969 they made a substantial gift to the newly opened University of Utah Library which was subsequently named the Marriott Library. They later made another generous gift, this time to Brigham Young University, for the Marriott Activities Center which was dedicated in 1973. Mr. Marriott received honorary doctorate degrees from both institutions, as well as from Weber State College.

As a loyal Republican, Mr. Marriott formed close friendships in the national political arena. His list of friends included Dwight D. Eisenhower (a frequent customer of the Hot Shoppes), Richard Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. He was appointed by Nixon to chair both the 1969 and 1973 inaugural committees and served as chairman of the executive committee for Honor America Day for many years, along with committee members Billy Graham and Bob Hope. The Marriotts were life-long contributors to the Republican National Committee and supporters of George Romney and Richard Nixon's bids for the presidential nomination. Mr. Marriott also served on the board of governors for the United Service Organizations.

Mr. Marriott was always held in great esteem by his colleagues. He served as president of both the Washington Restaurant Association and the National Restaurant Association, and received numerous awards in the food and lodging industries. Throughout his life, he was affiliated with many business and civic organizations including the Burning Tree Club, the Indian Creek Country Club, Bald Peak Colony Club, Columbia Country Club, Capitol Hill Club, Federal City Council, the Washington Admirals, the National Association of Manufacturers, Riggs National Bank, the American Historical and Cultural Society, American Motors Corporation, Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company, and the Acacia Mutual Life Insurance Company.

Mr. Marriott died of a heart attack on August 13, 1985, at his summer home in New Hampshire.

BIOGRAPHY OF ALICE SHEETS MARRIOTT

Alice Sheets Marriott (1907-2000) was born October 19, 1907, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Alice Taylor and Edwin Spencer Sheets. She graduated with honors from the University of Utah in 1927 at age 19. She was a member of Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and Chi Omega sorority.

Two days after graduation she married J. Willard Marriott in the Salt Lake Temple and moved to Washington, D.C. to help with the A & W root beer stand he had opened a few weeks before. Shortly after her arrival, they opened a second stand. Mrs. Marriott's early responsibilities included collecting accounts and taking receipts to the bank. Although the business was quite successful during the summer months, it was apparent that in the approaching winter months they would need more than root beer to keep the business afloat. Food service in the franchise was prohibited, but the Marriotts were able to secure special permission from Allen and Wright to add food to the menu.

The Marriotts discussed the idea of serving Mexican and Southwestern food, but neither had any experience in food preparation of this kind. Since Mrs. Marriott had majored in Spanish in college, she was able to talk to the chef at the Mexican embassy who provided her with a few recipes and the address of a Mexican food supply house in San Antonio, Texas.

Mrs. Marriott practiced cooking the recipes while Mr. Marriott made preparations to modify the stand for food service. They were determined to have everything ready in order to change the stand as quickly as possible, so they wouldn't lose their patronage. In the fall of 1927 the changes were made and the stand was transformed overnight. The Hot Shoppe was now in business, with Mrs. Marriott as the chef.

In 1930, Alice Taylor Sheets, Mrs. Marriott's mother, married Senator Reed Smoot and with that marriage came the Marriotts' inclusion in the political circles of Washington, D.C. In addition to these social activities, Mrs. Marriott continued to be very involved with the business, even after the birth of their sons, J. Willard Marriott, Jr. in 1932 and Richard Edwin Marriott in 1939. She was instrumental in key decision-making which affected the company's growth and success, and even helped design and decorate company restaurants and hotels and scouted out new locations for company expansion.

Mrs. Marriott's political activities were varied and extensive throughout her life. From 1955 to 1957 she served as assistant treasurer for the League of Republican Women for the District of Columbia, and in 1957 was appointed vice president of the organization, a post she held for two years. She continued to affiliate with the League of Republican Women, serving in numerous positions in subsequent years. In 1959 she was named to the District of Columbia Republican State Executive Committee. She was a member of the Republican National Committee from 1959 to 1976, and during those years she served as vice chairman and as an executive committee member. She served on the Arrangements Committee for the Republican National Conventions of 1960, 1964, 1968, and 1972, and was treasurer of the conventions in 1964, 1968, and 1972. She was vice chairman of the 1969 Inaugural Committee and honorary chairman of the 1973 Inaugural Committee.

In addition to her political responsibilities, Mrs. Marriott was actively involved with various organizations in the community, including the Goodwill Industries Guild, the Capital Speakers Club, the International Neighbors Club, the Arthritis and Rheumatism Association of Metropolitan Washington, and the National Advisory Committee for Children and Youth. She also helped found the Welcome to Washington International Club.

The nation's arts community has benefitted greatly from Mrs. Marriott's service and philanthropy. In 1971 she was appointed chairman of the Advisory Committee on the Arts for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and in 1972 was appointed to the board of trustees. She is now an honorary trustee, having served two 10-year terms on the board and executive and finance committees. She has also served on the board of directors of the National Ballet Society, and is a former member of the Women's Committee of the National Symphony Orchestra.

Mrs. Marriott's dedication to academic excellence has been manifest not only in her college years, but throughout her life. She holds two honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degrees, one from Mount Vernon College and one from the University of Utah. The University of Utah has been the recipient of the Marriott's support and generosity for many years. In 1989 the new dance building was dedicated as the Alice Sheets Marriott Center for Dance in recognition of her particular interest in the arts. In 1988 for the Marriott Library's twentieth anniversary, Mrs. Marriott made a sizeable donation, and in the tradition of the family, her son, J. Willard Marriott, Jr., chaired the university's capital campaign which far exceeded its goal of one hundred and fifty million dollars. At the conclusion of the campaign, the Marriott's made a significant donation to the library.

On April 17, 2000 Alice Sheets Marriott passed away at the age of 92. Mrs. Marriott's counsel and advice had been sought by various individuals and organizations throughout her life. She was a member of the American Newspaper Women's Association, the Capitol Hill Club, the Washington Club, the 1925 F Street Club, and had been named to the honorary board of the National Committee for Prevention of Child Abuse. She served as a member of the National Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases Advisory Council and was on the board of directors of the Arthritis Foundation. She was also an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Mrs. Marriott was director emeritus of Marriott International Incorporated and Host Marriott Corporation, having served one of the longest periods of active board service in American business history. Her oldest son, J. Willard Marriott, Jr., is the chairman of Marriott International and her younger son, Richard E. Marriott, is chairman of Host Marriott.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

J. Willard and Alice Sheets Marriott formed a business partnership in 1927 that produced one of the twentieth century's most successful hotel and restaurant chains. Not only did they make a lasting impact in the service and hospitality industry, but they left their mark in the political, religious, and academic arenas as well. Their papers range in date from the 1920s to the 1980s and have been divided into nine sections. It should be noted that some original correspondence from the collection were put in the Manuscripts Division Reserve Collection and photocopies were placed in its stead.

The first section contains family biographical and autobiographical materials. Items include correspondence, certificates and awards, medical and health histories, pension plans, will and estate information, family property records, and draft and final copies of Marriott, a biography written by Robert O'Brien. Personal letters in this section detail family relationships and friendships with prominent leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) and civic leaders.

Section two contains correspondence and comprises one of the largest portions of the collection. It has been arranged alphabetically, chronologically, and by subject. This method of organization originated with Mr. Marriott and was left intact to maintain original order. It should be noted that there is a great deal of what would be considered personal correspondence in this portion of the collection. The correspondence files document the Marriotts' involvement with the corporation, as well as in civic, religious, and family affairs from the 1940s to the 1980s. In addition to the letters, there are corresponding pamphlets, brochures, minutes, reports, speeches, programs, and various newspaper and magazine articles.

The subject files comprising the third section were originally filed in Mr. Marriott's home. These documents include information on various clubs and organizations, notes and research materials on religious subjects, speeches delivered by Mr. Marriott, correspondence between Mr. Marriott and friends, Book of Mormon archaeological research information, files regarding the Book of Mormon hotel placement program, records documenting the Marriotts' affiliation with various universities, the United States Military Chaplaincy and Mormon chaplains, the building and dedication of the Mormon temple in Washington, D.C., and general information on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This material mainly reflects Mr. Marriott's private interests and subjects of interest to him, his association with friends, and materials researched for sermons. Corresponding material may be found in the correspondence, corporate, and political sections of the collection.

The corporate files comprise the fourth section of the collection and contain information relating to Hot Shoppes Incorporated and the Marriott Corporation. They provide a general overview of the company's internal functions, management philosophies and styles, and company growth over a period of 50 years. Materials include board of directors files, restaurant and hotel branch records, calendars, catering division records, contracts, correspondence, test kitchen records and statistics, competitor files, expansion and development information, financial records, historical information, insurance records, leases and agreements, licenses and permits, personnel files, wage and tip information, physical facilities and grounds records, company reports, and Marriott Corporation publications. Because the Marriotts' personal lives were so interconnected with their professional lives, there is information about the corporation in other parts of the collection as well. For instance, there is information about Earl Sams' early financial involvement with the corporation in box nine, and correspondence regarding the corporation in the general correspondence section of the collection. There are also memoranda in box 57 between Mr. Marriott and John S. Daniels, a corporate vice president. The general scrapbooks in section seven provide excellent chronological documentation of the corporation. In addition, the Marriott Corporation maintains an extensive corporate archive.

Section five contains political records that reflect the Marriotts' involvement in national affairs from the 1950s until the 1970s. These papers show both the personal and professional sides of their involvement. Information on various presidential inaugurations, the National Republican Committee and conventions, Watergate, and the candidacy of George Romney, a close personal friend, have been filed here. Documents include reports, correspondence, invitations, tickets, legal paperwork, events planning records, and general committee files. These materials are arranged chronologically by inauguration and alphabetically by subject.

The files in section six document Mr. Marriott's service as chairman of Honor America Day from 1970 until 1984. Materials include information about the American Historic and Cultural Society, the Bicentennial Celebration, souvenirs and commemorative memorabilia, publicity and promotional materials, contribution records, correspondence, financial information, and celebration plans. Also included are anti-pornography materials from the group Morality in Media.

In 1970 Mrs. Marriott was named chairman of the advisory committee for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The materials in section seven document her involvement with the center and in the national arts community. All records have been listed under the Kennedy Center name, although the organization itself was known as the National Cultural Center until the dedication of the Kennedy Center in 1971. These papers also provide a comprehensive look at Mrs. Marriott's individual activities, and the esteem with which she was regarded by colleagues and admirers across the country.

The scrapbooks in section eight were compiled by Mrs. Marriott and cover the lives of the Marriotts from the 1920s to 1985. They illustrate the personal, political, social, and religious aspects of the Marriotts' lives. Corporate history and development can be traced from newspaper articles, menus, annual reports, corporate publications, tickets, invitations, and information about stock and sales, robberies, restaurant associations, and restaurant and hotel openings. Also included are Christmas cards, photographs, items from family gatherings and various social events. There are also scrapbooks documenting Honor America Day celebrations and various presidential inaugurations.

The final section of the collection contains oversize items including personal and corporate blueprints and architectural drawings, maps, posters, and book cover designs. Of particular interest are the watercolors and chalk drawings made for the Honor America Day celebrations.

Lines, Ona
Ona Lines first contacted Mr. Marriott in the early in 1960s requesting ecclesiastical assistance for her son Shawn Leonce Lines. Included are letters to Mr. Marriott, a copy of her son's patriarchal blessing, and other miscellaneous items. The bulk of the materials in this box include correspondence and propaganda concerning world peace organizations Excel International Foundation and Bondi Educational Health Foundation. It is not known whether or not these organizations were created by Ona Lines, but most of the material comes in the form of requests for financial and political support. These materials were retained because of their eccentric nature.

Political RecordsReturn to Top

The political records reflect the Marriotts' involvement with presidential inaugurations from the 1950s to the 1970s, their activities in National Republican Party politics, and friendships and associations with prominent government officials. The files document the Marriotts' service in various capacities for the Nixon and Eisenhower inaugurations, and their involvement with the National Republican Committee and Conventions. These papers reflect the personal and professional nature of their activities. Materials include reports, correspondence, invitations, tickets, legal documents, events planning information, and general committee files. The files are arranged chronologically by inauguration, convention, or committee. The inaugural files, where possible, are organized as shown on each inaugural organizational chart. Thus, box and folder listings for each inauguration may differ slightly. It may be helpful to refer to the organizational charts before perusing inaugural files.

ScrapbooksReturn to Top

The scrapbooks were compiled by Alice Sheets Marriott and depict the lives of the Marriotts from the 1920s to 1985. The general scrapbooks illustrate the personal, political, social, and religious aspects of the Marriotts' lives. The Hot Shoppes/Marriott Corporation history and development can be traced from newspaper articles, menus, annual reports, corporate publications, tickets, invitations, information about stock and sales, robberies, restaurant associations, and restaurant and hotel openings. Also included are Christmas cards, photographs, and other items from family gatherings and various social events.
