As Secretary of Labor (1960), he signs a typed letter to US Senator Strom Thurmond, transmitting a Department publication on manpower along with his own analysis.
Typed Letter signed: "James P. Mitchell" as Secretary of Labor, 2 pages, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1960 February 6. On official letterhead to US Senator Strom Thurmond. In part: "Enclosed is a new publication of the Department of Labor entitled 'Manpower - Challenge of the 1960s' which I believe will be of interest to you. [Item not included.] ... In summary the 1960s will bring dramatic changes in our manpower posture, both in terms of the numbers and kinds of people available to work and in the kinds of work which they will be required to perform. The problems of recognizing, developing and fully using our manpower capabilities will challenge all of us - management, labor, educators, state and local governments and agencies, the Federal government." James Paul Mitchell (1900-1964) was Director of Industrial Personnel for the War Department during World War II, continuing to work on Army labor relations through the Korean War. He was Secretary of Labor in the Eisenhower administration (1953-1961), where his emphasis on employment discrimination and the status of migrant workers earned him the nickname "social conscience of the Republican Party." He lost a close race for Governor of New Jersey in 1961. Normal mailing folds. Staple holes at upper left corner. Ink stamp at upper left margin. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
