INTRODUCTION

The McDaniel Lewis Papers consist of various correspondence, articles, printed materials, and photographs compiled and written by McDaniel Lewis. Lewis was an outspoken, conservative and sometimes controversial figure in Greensboro. He was quick to speak out or write letters to the editor on any topic of interest to him.

The bulk of the materials relate to Lewis’s civic activities and his involvement in various social and political issues. Researchers interested in Greensboro/Guilford County politics will find information on several issues, including the debate over loyalty oaths during the Eisenhower administration, Quaker pacifism and the Peace Corps, the shooting of Willie Grimes at NC A&T University, and the 1927 recall election of several city councilmen. There are significant materials relating to the creation and development of the Greensboro Historical Museum, including correspondence discussing museum acquisitions and preparations for several anniversaries.

Having an avid interest in history and historic preservation, Lewis was involved in numerous organizations, including the NC Dept. of Archives and History, the Guilford County American Revolution Bicentennial Commission, and the proposed creation of MacLamroc Park in honor of Guilford County historian, James MacLamroc. Topical correspondence includes several letters from prominent North Carolinian’s, such as Gov. Luther Hodges, Jesse Helms, and Senator Sam J. Ervin. For a more complete list of subjects, researchers should consult the index and/or folder listings.

The main weakness of this collection is the lack of materials pertaining to Lewis’s personal life and his family. Series #28 contains a scant amount of family correspondence and genealogical information. There is, however, little information about his private life outside of his civic involvement. The collection also contains little information concerning the McDaniel Lewis & Co. investment firm, which he created in 1941.

Arrangement: McDaniel Lewis arranged his papers originally by subject/topic; the original order was maintained in most cases. The collection is arranged alphabetically into 45 series based on subject. Each subject is then sub-divided by either topic and/or document type. The series are: American Legion; Bank Holiday; Cook, Mrs. R.E.; First Baptist Church; Fisher and Latham Park Monuments; Frank, Philip E.; Greensboro and Guilford County Governmental Center; Greensboro Chamber of Commerce; Greensboro City Club; Greensboro Country Club; Greensboro Historical Museum; Greensboro; Greensboro Public Library; Greensboro Schools, Libraries, and Boundaries; Greensboro Sesquicentennial; Greensboro 27; Guilford County American Revolution Bicentennial Commission; Guilford County Bicentennial Commission; Guilford County Director of History, Culture, and Information; Guilford County Genealogical Society; Guilford County Note; Guilford County; Guilford County National Military Park; High Point, NC; Historic Jamestown Society, Inc.; Lewis, McDaniel; Maps; Metropolitan Dinner Club of Greater Greensboro; N.C. American Revolution Bicentennial Commission; Oak Ridge Military Institute; Printed Material; Quakers and Guilford College; Recall Election; Reserve Officers Association; Richardson Hospital; United Arts Council of Greensboro; Van Noppen Referendum; Veterans of Foreign Wars; Veterans Memorialization; War Memorial Coliseum (Commission); War Memorial Stadium; Wilson, Louis Round Centennial; and World War II.

Provenance: This collection was donated by McDaniel Lewis shortly before his death in 1978. Although processed, it was not formally accessioned.

Processing: This collection was organized by Dennis Daniels of the UNCG History Dept. as part of an internship during the summer of 1993. The finding aid was completed by Christine A. Dumoulin, Archives Assistant, in July 2001.


BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

McDaniel Lewis was born on February 24, 1894, in Asheville, NC, to Elisha Betts Lewis and Dora McDaniel. In 1898, the family relocated to Kinston, NC, where Lewis spent most of his youth; Lewis was one of six children. After graduating from Kinston High School in 1912, he attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he received his A.B. As a student, he began utilizing his writing abilities as co-editor of The Daily Tar Heel, the student paper. He also worked on the staffs of the University Magazine and the yearbook, Yackety-Yak. Lewis was also a student correspondent for the Greensboro Record.

Upon graduation in 1916, he took a position at Raleigh High School (NC) as an English teacher and track coach. He married Lynwood Adams Cook of Danville, VA, in 1917. Towards the end of World War I, Lewis was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the infantry of the U.S. Army in 1917; he served for two years, and spent 15 years in the U.S. Army Reserve Corps as a captain. After the war, Lewis began working with the Southern Real Estate Company in Greensboro for several years and then became interested in investment banking. He formed the partnership of Lewis & Hall in 1931 and eventually established his own firm, McDaniel Lewis & Co. ten years later.

From his early days in Greensboro, Lewis was an advocate and activist for the preservation of local and state history. In 1924, the Greensboro Historical Museum was founded, Lewis being a charter member. He would serve the museum for decades to come, including collecting artifacts and serving on numerous committees. He also served as a member of the Executive Board of the NC Dept. of Archives and History for 18 years, 12 of them as chairman. He received several awards for his efforts in historic preservation such as the Dolley Madison Award presented by the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce and a distinguished service award from the Dept. of Archives and History. He was instrumental in getting the City of Greensboro to set aside a soldiers and sailors area at Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Lewis was also involved in several local Greensboro/Guilford County committees, including the Guilford County Selective Service Board #2, the N.C. Municipal Council as director, Chairman, Greensboro Recognition Day Committee, and the Guilford County executive committee. During the 1970s, he was involved with the Member of the Guilford County American Revolution Bicentennial Commission. He also was responsible for initiating the 1955 honor banquet for Edwin B. Jeffress, which led to establishing the Chamber of Commerce’s distinguished citizen award. Lewis was also a trustee for Chowan College from 1957-61, 1963-67.

Ten years after the death of his first wife, he married Lillian King Kimbrough in 1965. He had two daughters, Margaret Betts and Mary Lewis. He passed away at his home on August 13, 1978.

SCOPE & CONTENT NOTE

The materials in this collection focus primarily on the civic and political activities of Lewis rather than his family life. Much of the materials reflect his vast interests in political, social, and historical issues relating to Greensboro. He was a member of numerous organizations and committees during his lifetime.

Several series, such as the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, the Greensboro Historical Museum, and the Guilford County Bicentennial Commission contain large amounts of correspondence, especially letters from prominent social and political figures, such as Andrew Joyner (9:5, 9:6, 12:25, 12:29), Ceasar Cone (16:1), Edward R. Murrow (17:6), and Gov. Luther Hodges (12:9). Lewis wrote many letters soliciting support for different causes, such as the building of War Memorial Stadium or expressing his conservative opinions on social issues. Of particular note is Lewis’s view on race relations at the end of the Civil Rights Movement and changes in local government. He blasts the Chamber for their handling of the 1969 shooting of Willie Grimes at A&T University and the possible implementation of a ward system of city government. (9:12, 9:20-21)

Lewis’s love of history and interest in preservation efforts are well documented. The Greensboro Historical Museum series contains documentation on early collection development (12:2-8), correspondence and printed materials relating to its 35th anniversary (12:22-12:50), and various clippings (12:37). Also of interest are the reports and correspondence of his involvement with making Guilford Courthouse a national military park. The correspondence includes letters from Stewart Udall and the U.S. Dept. of the Interior (25:10) and Sen. Sam J. Ervin. (25:4). Additional documentation for preserving the history of Greensboro/Guilford county can be seen in the correspondence of the Original Acts of Greensboro and Guilford County (8:1), Fisher and Latham Park Monuments (5:1), and the newspaper clippings in the Greensboro Sesquicentennial (17:15-16).

The series on the American Legion (#1), Veterans of Foreign Wars (#40) & Veterans Memorialization (#41), War Memorial Coliseum and Stadium projects (#42 & 43) and World War II (#45) document Lewis’s military involvement and his patriotism. He was instrumental in convincing the City of Greensboro to set aside a soldiers and sailors area at Forest Lawn Cemetery (41:1-20).
