Clarence Leroy Andrews was an employee of the Interior Department Bureau of Education and Reindeer Service in Alaska in the 1920s. He focused on Eskimos and their use of reindeer herds, writing several books about Eskimo life in Alaska. He was especially concerned with corporations which exploited reindeer herds, and led a campaign in the 1930s to remove Carl Momen of Seattle from control of the reindeer industry. The C. L. Andrews papers consist largely of business and personal correspondence, published and unpublished manuscripts, and photographs. Important to the collection are the W. T. Lopp files that relate to education in Alaska and the reindeer service from 1908-1939.
Edward A. Rumely (1882-1964) was a physician, a progressive educator, and a political activist. He was an outspoken opponent of the New Deal, active in stabilizing farm prices, a central figure in several powerful Constitutional organizations, and the respondent in a landmark First Amendment case, U.S. v. Rumely. The Rumely papers are part of the Conservative and Libertarian collections.
