Appointive Offices City,
County, State, Federal

The Negro fares better in his share
of appointive offices than in the elec-
tive offices, but in neither regard does
he share in numbers proportionate
to the size of the Negro vote. In the
larger northern cities Negroes are
allowed a considerable number of
"Civil Service" jobs. Political debts
are frequently repaid by the appoint-
ment of Negroes to minor adminis-
trative or menial jobs. Where there
are large numbers of Negroes it is not
unusual to find them appointed as
assistants in various capacities. Excep-
tions do occur, however. In California,
in 1945, Governor Earl Warren named
Atty. Walter Gordon Chairman of the
California Adult Authority Board, at
a salary of $10,000 per year. This
board has supervisory power over all
male adult inmates of State prisons.

As to Federal appointments, until
the Franklin D. Roosevelt administra-
tion there was a steady decline in the
number of Negro Presidential appoint-
ees. President Roosevelt appointed
163 Negroes to supervisory or admin-
istrative jobs, 1933-1941. Kiplinger in
his Washington is Like That (1942)
listed twenty-four men and women
Federal officials and five advisers as
the most prominent colored leaders
in the capital. Heading his list was



William H. Hastie, Civilian Aide to
the Secretary of War (first Negro
ever to hold a Federal judgeship).
Among others included were: Lorimer
Milton, banker from Atlanta, then the
only Negro "dollar-a-year" man in gov-
ernment service; Dr. William H. Dean,
Jr., Consultant on locations of industry
for the National Resources Planning
Board, Dr. Ralph Bunche, expert on
Native Problems in the British Em-
pire Section of the Library of Con-
gress, Milton P. Webster, member of
the Committee on Fair Employment
Practice, and International Vice-Pres-
ident of the Brotherhood of Sleeping
Car Porters; Mrs. Crystal Bird Fauset,
in charge of racial relations, Office of
Civilian Defense; Walter White, Ex-
ecutive Secretary, the N.A.A.C.P., a
powerful force in all Negro affairs.
Outstanding among Presidential ap-
pointees also was the prominent edu-
cator and President of the National
Council of Negro Women, Mrs. Mary
McLeod Bethune, as Director of Ne-
gro activities for the National Youth
Administration.

Of the appointive list, the poorest
showing is made in diplomatic and
consular service. According to L. J.
W. Hayes' study of the Negro Federal
Government worker, in 1941 there were
but three Negroes in such service, as
against a total of eleven in 1908. Judge
William H. Hastie made history when

in 1946 he became the first Negro to
be named Governor of the Virgin
Islands. In the same year Dr. R. O'-
Hara Lanier succeeded Lester A. Wal-
ton as Minister Envoy, Extraordinary
and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of
Liberia.

New posts of adviser on Negro af-
fairs were created in many of the gov-
ernment bureaus and departments dur-
ing Roosevelt's Presidency. Prominent
among these during the War was the
post of Civilian Aide to the Secretary
of War, held by William H. Hastie,
1940, until his resignation in 1943
when Truman K. Gibson, Jr., was
named. In addition to full-time
appointments, other official part-time
advisory posts were set up, as in 1942
when Dr. F. D. Patterson, President
of Tuskegee Institute and Claude A.
Barnett, Director of the Associated
Negro Press, were named special as-
sistants to the Secretary of Agricul-
ture.

Under the leadership of Mrs. Mary
McLeod Bethune of the National
Youth Administration, Negro advisers
were organized into the Federal Coun-
cil of Negro Advisers, known as the
"Black Cabinet." The group met
monthly to discuss ways and means
of profitably representing the cause of
the Negro. The "Black Cabinet" was
criticized by the Negro press as be-
ing purely advisory and not policy
forming. The resignation in early
1944 of Dr. Robert C. Weaver, the
Cabinet's first member, from the War
Man Power Commission (following
resignations of Atty. Theodore Berry
from the Office of War Information
and Judge William H. Hastie as Civil-
ian Aide to the Secretary of War)
marked the end of the "Black Cab-
inet." Membership of the Federal
Council of Negro Advisers included:
Emmer Martin Lancaster, Joseph
Houchins of the Department of Com-
merce; Judge William H. Hastie, Tru-
man K. Gibson, Jr., War Department;
Constance E. H. Daniel, Jerome Rob-
inson and Giles Hubert, Department
of Agriculture; William H. Houston,
Louis Mehlinger, Louis Lautier of the
Department of Justice; Dr. William J.
Thompkins, Recorder of Deeds; Ralph
E. Mizelle, Post Office Department;
Cornelius King, Farm Credit Admin-
istration; Major Campbell C. Johnson,
Selective Service; Robert C. Weaver,



Frances H. Williams, Robert R. Tay-
lor, Theodore R. Poston, Defense;
William Trent, Public Works; Frank
S Home, Charles Johnson, Henry
Lee Moon, Edward Lovett, Charles S.
Duke, of the Housing Authority; Al-
fred E. Smith, Dutton R. Ferguson,
Works Progress Administration; How-
ard D. Woodson, Treasury Depart-
ment; Lawrence Oxley, Dr. Charles
E. Franklin, Ira DeA. Reid and Roy
Ellis, Social Security Board; Dr. Am-
brose Caliver, Department of Educa-
tion; Joseph H. B. Evans, T. Arnold
Hill, Pauline Redmond. Ora B. Stokes,
Nell Hunter and Reginald Johnson,
National Youth Administration; Vin-
ita Lewis of the Children's Bureau
and Edgar G. Brown of the Civilian
Conservation Corps.

President Truman's appointment in
1945 of Atty. Irvin C. Mollison as Asso-
ciate Judge of the United States Cus-
toms Court marked the first time a Ne-
gro served in continental United States
as Federal Judge. Ralph J. Bunche
was appointed, the same year, to the
Caribbean Commission. Several out-
standing appointments were given to
Negroes during 1946. There was the
aforementioned naming of Judge Wil-
liam H. Hastie as Governor of the Vir-
gin Islands. Charles S. Johnson, soci-
ologist, was named first to a small
educational commission, by the State
and War Departments, to go to Japan
at the request of General Douglas
MacArthur, and later as one of 40
members of the National Commission
advising the State Department on
United States participation in UNE-
SCO (United Nations Educational,
Scientific, and Cultural Organization).
The President's Committee on Civil
Rights, composed of some of the na-
tion's outstanding crusaders for justice
and equality, included Dr. Channing
H. Tobias, New York City, director of
the Phelps-Stokes Fund, formerly
Senior Secretary of the National Coun-
cil of the Young Men's Christian As-
sociation, and Mrs. Sadie M. Alex-
ander, lawyer, Philadelphia. Truman
K. Gibson, Jr., Chicago attorney, and
former Civilian Aide to the Secretary
of War, was one of nine persons selec-
ted to serve on the President's Advis-
ory Commission on Universal Train-
ing.

THE NEGRO IN POLITICS



Negroes Holding Civil
Service Appointments

Brief mention should be made of
the growing number of Negroes hold-
ing Civil Service appointments. In
1938 about 82,000 or approximately
9.8 per cent of the total number of
Federal employees were Negroes, ac-
cording to Civil Service reports. Most
of these were to be found in postal
service and sub-clerical levels of mes-
senger and custodial service, with a
very few in the higher paid brackets.
The picture changed considerably dur-
ing the war and the operation of the
Fair Employment Practice Committee
when a large number of Negroes
was taken into the ranks of Federal
workers, many employed on clerica 1 ,
technical and professional levels.
Davis and Golightly in their study of
Negro Federal workers report that 57
governmental agencies and depart-
ments, as of March 31, 1944, had 273,-
981 Negro employees. These represent-
ed 11.9 per cent of the total.

It is probable that the Negro worker
will play a much less significant role,
numerically and professionally, in Fed-
eral employment after the declaration
of the end of the emergency.
