Size 19.0 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 9500 items)
Abstract Lenoir Chambers was a native of North Carolina. Chambers worked as a newspaper editor in Norfolk, Va., 1929- 1961, and was the author of Stonewall Jackson (1959) and Salt Water and Printer's Ink (1967). The collection chiefly consists of correspondence, speeches, writings, and research materials of Lenoir Chambers. Papers up to 1929 deal mainly with his World War I experiences as a member of the 52nd Infantry, Sixth Division, American Expeditionary Forces. There is little information about the interim period between the war and his move to Norfolk. From 1929 until 1948, newspaper affairs and editorial policies are dominent themes, especially after Chambers became editor of the Norfolk Ledger-Dispatch in 1944. He began writing a biography of Stonewall Jackson in 1947, and papers from 1948-1952 consist of correspondence relating to his research. In 1950 he became editor of the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot. Stonewall Jackson was published in 1959. Chambers won a Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing in 1960. These events and newspaper and local political affairs appear in the correspondence. Chambers retired in 1961 and afterward continued to write and lecture and to serve on many civic and historical boards. The collection consists largely of letters to Chambers and copies of his replies, copies of his speeches and a few editorials, some maps and pictures, clippings of articles, and various drafts of his two books.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Joseph Lenoir Chambers, son of Joseph Lenoir and Grace Singleton Dewey Chambers, was born in Charlotte, N.C., on 26 December 1891. He attended Woodberry Forest, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the Columbia University School of Journalism. After serving in the 52nd Infantry, Sixth Division, American Expeditionary Forces during World War I, he became director of the University of North Carolina News Bureau (1919-1921), then reporter, city editor, and eventually associate editor of the Greensboro Daily News (1921-1929). Chambers moved to Norfolk, Va., to become associate editor of the Virginian-Pilot (1929-1944) and editor of the Norfolk Ledger-Dispatch in 1944.

In 1947, Francis Phillips of William, Morrow, and Co. interested Chambers in writing a biography of Stonewall Jackson. Chambers became editor of the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot in 1950. He published Stonewall Jackson in 1959 and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing in 1960. That same year, he was given an honorary L.L.D. degree from the University of North Carolina. From 1959 to 1962, Chambers served as a member of the Nieman Foundation Selecting Committee; was a juror for the Pulitzer Prize awards; wrote an article for We Dissent (a book edited by Hoke Norris); compiled an article on Virginia for Grolier Encyclopedia; and appeared at numerous speaking engagements, including the University of North Carolina commencement of 1961. After retiring in 1961, Chambers continued to speak; wrote a history of Norfolk newspapers entitled Salt Water and Printer's Ink (1967); served on an advisory council for the development of the New Market Battlefield (1966-1969); became active in Virginia Historical Society affairs; and played an important role in the development of branch libraries as vice president of the Norfolk Public Library Board.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 1. Correspondence, 1907-1970.

About 8000 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Papers up until 1929 deal mainly with Lenoir Chambers's World War I experiences; there is little documentation of the period between World War I and his move to Norfolk. From 1929 to 1948, newspaper affairs and editorial policies are dominant themes. After his move to Virginia, Chambers was active in the Norfolk Forum, the Norfolk Academy, and the nearby naval base.

Papers show that Chambers did not lose interest in North Carolina affairs after he moved to Norfolk and continued to correspond with people at the University of North Carolina, including Frank Porter Graham, Phillips Russell, and Louis Round Wilson, and with North Carolina editors, including Ben Dixon MacNeill, J. E. Dowd, Ernest B. Hunter, and Jonathan Daniels.

Papers and reports relating to lynching appear in 1930 and continue until around 1953. Correspondence and other materials relating to the New York Times's Watch-Tower series makes up the bulk of the papers from 1931 to 1935. From 1948 to 1952, there is much correspondence with librarians and historians about research for Chambers's book on Stonewall Jackson. During this period, there is occasional mention of the 1948 and 1952 presidential campaigns.

During the 1950s, the major topic of discussion is the desegregation controversy, specifically in Virginia and North Carolina. Also included are materials relating to Chambers's newspaper work, and to the University of North Carolina, Woodberry Forest School, Senator Joseph McCarthy (1954), the Norfolk Public Library, the Gray Commission (1955), the Stonewall Jackson Memorial, Sweet Briar (1956-1960), Norfolk Academy, the 1956 presidential campaign, the National Conference of Editorial Writers, and the American Society of Newspaper Editors.

The bulk of correspondence from 1959 to 1962 relates to the publication of Stonewall Jackson. There is also some material concerning the 1960 presidential campaign. Correspondence about Salt Water and Printer's Ink begins in 1963 and continues through 1967.
