Notes:
Herbert M. Faust spent more than 24 years with the Curtis Publishing Company, 1918-1943. He left Curtis Sept. 1943 to join the War Production Board as a "dollar-a-year" man but was quickly transferred to the Federal payroll. The function of the War Production Board was to exercise general direction over the war procurement and production programs of all Federal departments and agencies. Mr. Faust served as Director of the Salvage Division of the War Production Board. During his tenure, there was a very heavy emphasis on paper salvage and much of the material in his papers relates to it. In Nov. 1944, Mr. Faust became manager, central division, Mutual Broadcasting System, Detroit, Michigan.
Summary:
Papers relate to Mr. Faust's diverse career, including information on advertising in the 1920s, including two marketing studies from 1920 & 1922 of Sabetha, Kansas; his War Production Board experience, 1943-1944, which demonstrates the magnitude of that operation, its contribution to the war effort, and the extensive involvement of the American public in the salvage effort; and correspondence relating to his employment with and retirement from the Mutual Broadcasting Company, 1945-1948. These papers constitute a personal record of a successful career which reached its peak with important wartime civilian service.
