Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1942 - 1979
Scope and Contents:
This subseries consists of position/job descriptions, announcements and evaluations for specific employees, organizational charts, lists of employees, compensation and benefits, insurance, reports, correspondence, printed materials and memoranda related to employee and management matters.

Also included are employee identification cards, training and safety materials. The training materials include memoranda for specific training, such as basic chemistry and manuals. A 1957 orientation workbook, U.S.M.C. Organization: United in Action was given to all employees in the Research Division.

The safety materials document the division's Safety Committee, which was responsible for the compliance of safety codes and regulations. Materials include memoranda, meeting minutes, a Safety Committee Manual (1962), and information about the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.

The management and personnel materials include notes, memoranda, and reports. United Shoe created a group called the "Little Leaguers" in the 1950s. Made up of personnel primarily from the Development Department, the group discussed various personnel-related issues and focused on communicating corporation policies, projects, events, and news among top research management and all other personnel. There are some informational sheets such as "R&D Management: A Study of Supervisor-Subordinate Interpersonal Relations and Securing Satisfactory Performance From Your Staff," prepared for managers as well as documentation on the corporation's use of the PERT computer program for project management.

There is extensive documentation about the corporate management visit to the Research Division in 1972 and a 1970 progress report by Choice Phillips, Jr., about the involvement of a minority (specifically African American) business operation and/or entrepreneurial venture with United Shoe. A proposal from David M. Nero of Nero Industries Incorporated, 1969 is also included and addresses training opportunities for minorities in Portland, Oregon. Additionally, there are materials about Earl Nightingale (1921-1989). Known as the "Dean of Personal Development," he was a motivational speaker and counselor to many major companies about management training. Nightingale created "Creative Thinking," "Lead the Field" and "Great Ideas" counseling sessions on 33 1/3 LP 7" records. Product literature about his counseling services and a speech "On Motivating the Disadvantaged Child" (1966), is available. Printed materials for the Success Motivation Institute, Inc. founded by Paul Meyer are also included as well as a 33 1/3 LP record, 1965.
