Research materials, manuscript drafts, etc.:  

New London, CT; Lexington, KY; and Ames, IA:  History Professor; author; and authority on Sen. George W. Norris

Size:  11.5 cu.ft.; 12 boxes and 1 reel of microfilm



BACKGROUND NOTE



Richard Lowitt, son of Eugene and Elanor (Lebowitz) Lowitt, was born in New York City on February 25, 1922. He received his B.S.S. from the City College of New York in 1943. His graduate degrees, an M.A. in 1945 and a Ph.D. in 1950, were received from Columbia University. Lowitt has taught at the University of Maryland, Florida State University, the University of Rhode Island, Brown, Yale, Emory, Connecticut College, the University of Kentucky, Iowa State University, and the University of Oklahoma.



Lowitt’s first book, A Merchant Prince of the 19th Century: William E. Dodge, was published in 1954. Much of Lowitt’s subsequent professional career has been spent in researching and writing about Nebraska Senator George W. Norris. His work has culminated in the authoritative biographical text on Norris and is comprised of three volumes: George W. Norris: The Making of a Progressive, 1861-1912 (1963); George W. Norris: The Persistence of a Progressive, 1913-1933 (1971); and George W. Norris: The Triumph of a Progressive, 1933-1944 (1978). This trilogy is available in the NSHS Library.



SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE



This collection consists of eleven boxes and one microfilmed reel of manuscript material arranged in three series: 1) Research Notes; 2) Manuscript Draft (Handwritten); and 3) Manuscript Draft (Typewritten). This material relates to the research conducted by and writings of Richard Lowitt for his three volume biography of George W. Norris, Senator from Nebraska.



The bulk of the collection consists of Lowitt’s Research Notes of Series 1. Covering over 400 files, the material found in this series is comprised of Lowitt’s notes on research materials examined; transcriptions of correspondence written by, to, or about Norris; and Lowitt’s evaluations of primary and secondary source material. Photocopies and transcriptions of the material in this series were made from originals found in the Library of Congress, the National Archives, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library, and many other repositories. The Nebraska State Historical Society will not make reproductions from the microfilm portion of this series. For his first biographical volume on Norris, Lowitt’s files are arranged by topic and/or time period. The research materials for the second and third Norris biography volumes follow the chapter titles used by Lowitt in those published works. (The exception to this is the research material gathered for a planned Chapter 35, to be titled “The Last Year.” In the published work, this material was used in Chapter 34, “Senator-at-Large.”)



Series 2 and Series 3 are comprised of Manuscript Drafts of Lowitt’s last book on Norris, George W. Norris: The Triumph of a Progressive, 1933-1944. The draft of Series 2 is handwritten, while the draft of Series 3 is in typescript form with revisions. These two series can be used in conjunction in order to determine the progression of Lowitt’s thought and writing.



Note:  See the NSHS Library Catalog and the Nebraska History index for various published materials by Richard Lowitt. For the papers of George W. Norris, see RG3298.
