Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Born in Marysville, Washington in 1927, Jack Metcalf served in the US military and as a boat skipper with the Fish and Wildlife Service during the 1940s. He graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a BA and BEd. in 1951, and later pursued graduate studies in history and economics, earning an MA at the University of Washington in 1966. Metcalf worked as a high school math and history teacher in Everett, Washington for nearly thirty years.

Metcalf began his political career in state government, serving as a Republican member of the Washington State House of Representatives (1961-1964) and later the Washington State Senate (1967-1975 and 1981-1993), where he chaired the Senate Environmental and Natural Resources Committee between 1988 and 1992. In 1994, as the Republican Party gained control of the U.S. House of Representatives, Metcalf was elected representative for Washington State's 2nd Congressional District.

Often described as a political conservative, Metcalf was concerned with a wide range of legislative issues. He served as a member of the House Banking, Transportation and Infrastructure, and Science Committees, and on subcommittees for Ground Transportation, Aviation, Financial Institutions and International Monetary Policy. As a politician and legislator, Metcalf focused much of his attention on regionally significant issues including Puget Sound transportation development, natural resource and fisheries management, and environmental protection. In 1997, Metcalf and U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-Washington) established the Northwest Straits Advisory Commission, a bipartisan body intended to conserve marine life in Northwest Washington. Metcalf also led an unsuccessful challenge to the resumption of whaling by the Makah Indian Tribe in Neah Bay, Washington.

A long-time advocate for the US military and military personnel, Metcalf pursued investigations into the origins of Gulf War Illnesses, sought funding to assist military families in Washington State, and in 1997 introduced the Robert Stodola Veterans Assistance Act to increase funding for homeless veterans’ programs. As chair of the Republican Housing Opportunity Caucus, Metcalf supported the Low Income Housing Tax credit program to encourage development of affordable homes.

An outspoken supporter of congressional term limits, Metcalf retired from the House of Representatives in 2000 after serving three terms. He lived in Langley on Whidbey Island, Washington until his death in March of 2007.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Jack Metcalf Papers document two decades of Metcalf’s political career as a Washington State Senator and United States Congressman. Collection materials span the period 1973-2001, with the bulk of materials dated 1981-2000. Pre-congressional records comprise approximately one linear foot of material generated during Metcalf’s final years as a Senator in the Washington State Legislature (1981-1993). Alphabetically-arranged Legislative Issue files document Metcalf’s long-standing opposition to the U.S. Federal Reserve, and his role as head of the Senate Environmental and Natural Resources Committee between 1988-1992. These files include correspondence, reports, surveys and articles reflecting communication and conflict between the Washington State Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Washington Wildlife Commission, Tribes and other interest groups over hunting rights and restrictions. Pre-congressional materials also contain a small number of awards and certificates of appreciation Metcalf received for his legislative work. With the exception of one “Outstanding Senator” award from 1973, the collection does not document Metcalf’s activities in the Washington State Legislature prior to 1981.

Congressional Records document Jack Metcalf’s role and interests as representative for Washington State’s 2nd Congressional District between 1994 and 2000. The majority of Congressional records were generated at Metcalf’s offices in Washington D.C., with a smaller amount of material (approximately three linear feet) from his District Office in Everett, Washington.

D.C. Office materials include a significant number of “Legislative Issue” files, grouped together according to subject (A-Z). These files include variously correspondence, memos, notes, statements, articles, and draft legislation pertaining to twenty-four broad areas of legislative concern. Many of Metcalf’s political activities focused on issues of immediate significance to the Pacific Northwest and his constituents in Washington State. Legislative Issue files document his roles in securing appropriations for transportation projects in the Puget Sound region, and seeking relief for fishers affected adversely by the downturn in the fishing industry at the end of the twentieth century. The collection documents many of the ongoing conflicts between environmental and commercial interests over protection, use and development of local resources, including National Park and National Forest Land, fisheries, waterways, and industrial clean-up sites. Whale and Marine Mammal files detail Metcalf’s active opposition to whaling by the Makah Indian Tribe in Neah Bay, Washington, while Water and Shipping files record his bipartisan efforts to enact the Northwest Straits Marine Conservation Initiative (1998). The collection contains press clippings, correspondence, statements, hearings transcripts and reports documenting the aftermath of the June 10, 1999 gas pipeline explosion at Whatcom Creek in Bellingham, Washington, and subsequent attempts by legislators and community organizations to enact pipeline safety legislation.

Legislative issue files pertaining to Aviation, Defense and US Military, Education, and Housing reflect Metcalf’s active support for local military contract bids, concern with the interests of local military families, his investigations into Gulf War Syndrome, and his active support for homeless veterans programs. Materials related to Defense and the Executive Branch record Metcalf’s opposition to Clinton’s alleged expansion and misuse of executive authority, notably through his troop deployments in Kosovo. Legislative Issue files also document Metcalf’s legislative involvement in areas of Banking and Investment, Agricultural, Health and Immigration policy, Energy Provision, Science and Telecommunications, Tribal Issues and International Trade and Foreign Affairs.

Metcalf’s D.C. Office Files include correspondence files dated 1995-2000. The majority of letters are outgoing from Metcalf (often in coalition with other legislators) to correspondents including the President, White House officials, the Speaker of the House, leaders of House Committees, and key figures in the private and non-government sector. Press Files comprise photographs, press statements and releases pertaining to Metcalf’s legislative concerns, and partial documentation of Metcalf’s congressional voting record. D.C. Office files also include a small number of awards and certificates Metcalf earned for his legislative work.

Metcalf’s congressional papers also contain a smaller amount of material (approximately three linear feet) generated at Metcalf’s District Office in Everett, Washington. The bulk of District Office records are subject-based Legislative Issue files. Articles, hearing transcripts and reports document Metcalf’s investigation into links between military vaccines and Gulf War Illnesses among Persian Gulf veterans, and include a copy of his 2000 report entitled Potential Role of Squalene in Gulf War Illnesses, submitted to the House Subcommittee on National Security, Veterans Affairs, and International Relations. The subseries also contains materials regarding military issues and local military bases, Lummi Indian Nation requests for federal assistance, Swinomish leaseholds and water rights, the local fishing industry and regional transportation and environmental projects. District office files include a further number of awards and certificates presented to Metcalf.

In 1997, Metcalf introduced House Resolution 191, condemning European Union opposition to the merger of Boeing Co. and McDonnell Douglas. Files also include brochures and press kits from US Navy vessels and stations visited by Jeff Markey, Metcalf’s military liaison assistant.

Fishing and Salmon
Fishing and Salmon files document both the down-turn in the region’s fishing industry at the end of the twentieth century, and ongoing debates and conflicts regarding the conservation of salmon and other fish in the Pacific Northwest, notably in the Columbia and Snake Rivers. Records reflect Metcalf’s support for fish and crab license buy-back programs, and his later attempts to secure federal emergency aid for Washington fishers adversely affected by the collapse of the sockeye fishing season in 1999.

Ground Transportation
Ground Transportation files include background information and funding proposals for a variety of transportation improvement and development projects in the Puget Sound region of Washington. As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and Ground Transportation subcommittee, Metcalf was actively involved in securing funds to develop and improve regional roads, bridges, transportation centers, port access, border crossings, and rail and bus mass transit systems. The majority of these projects sought funding from grants available under the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act, renewed by Congress in 1998.

Housing
Records document legislative responses to homelessness, and reflect Metcalf’s activities as a member and chair of the Republican Housing Opportunity Caucus (RHOC). In 1997, Metcalf introduced the Robert Stodola Homeless Veterans’ Assistance Act, requiring that McKinney Homeless Assistance Act programs devote 20% of funding to homeless veterans. He also sought to amendments to the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996, and co-sponsored the Affordable Housing Barrier Removal bill of 1998. Metcalf’s activities as head of the RHOC included support of the low income housing tax credit to encourage private investment in affordable housing.

Immigration and Border Issues
A founder of the Northern Border Caucus, Metcalf supported increased staffing along the northern US Border and attempts to restrict legal immigration. He meanwhile opposed automated border entry and exit systems and the proposed introduction of border fees that might threaten the influx of trade and tourism to Washington State. Immigration and Border files reflect the tension between interests seeking to reduce the number of immigrants entering the US, and the desire of agricultural lobbyists including Washington farmers to protect access to temporary and seasonal alien workers.

Resources
Resources Files document ongoing conflicts regarding the management of national and regional resources including use of National Park and National Forest land, fish and water conservation, Army Corps of Engineers development projects, and the proposed environmental clean-up of “Superfund” sites. A significant amount of material pertains to the use of resources in Alaska and Washington State, with clean-up information pertaining to Washington locations including Bellingham Bay, the Tulalip Landfill in Marysville, and Hanford nuclear site. These records also contain general information regarding the provisions and implementation of Environmental Protection Agency programs, including allegations of the misuse of Superfund and proposals for the program’s reform. A member of the Committee on Science’s Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment, Metcalf supported a ban on Alaska North Slope Oil, co-sponsored the Puget Sound Ecosystem Restoration Initiative to conserve regional salmon stocks, and introduced a National Organic Program Clarification bill in 1998.
