Government Operations

RG III Legislation - Government Operations 1941-1972
44 Hollinger documents boxes (#529-572)

Senator Mundt served on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations with John L. McClellan, Henry M. Jackson, John F. Kennedy, Stuart Symington, Sam J. Ervin, Jr., Hubert H. Humphrey, Strom Thurmond, Joseph R. McCarthy, Margaret Chase Smith, Norris Cotton, George H. Bender, and Thos. E. Martin. Robert F. Kennedy was the Chief Counsel.

The Army-McCarthy hearing in 1954 was chaired by Mundt. A complete manuscript of the Army-McCarthy Book by Senator Mundt in Box 555 may be viewed on microfilm or manuscript at the Mundt Library in Madison, South Dakota but is not available on interlibrary loan. Its publishing privileges are restricted to the Mundt Foundation. The Committee scrutinized such matters as Department of Defense procurement system, Federal Motor Vehicle Fleet, Pakistan Grain Storage Investigation, tariffs on watches, duplication in government map-making service and of medical supply systems by the Army and Navy, East-West trade controls, rubber requirements and resources of the U.S., the Hoover Commission Report with recommendations for cost controls and efficiency in government, labor racketeering, Communist ownership of G.I. schools, acceptance of gifts from foreign dignitaries by U.S. government employees, Surplus Property Disposal Act, Passport Service, Obscene Literature (S.162), establishment of a Department of Urban Affairs and Housing, creation of a Joint Committee on the Budget, the Valachi Hearings, Congressional Reorganization Act of 1969, the Billie Sol Estes case, TFX hearings, campus disorders in 1969, organized crime, fraud and mismanagement in Military Club Systems, illegal currency manipulation in South Vietnam, and bombing and terrorism in the United States.

Mundt's conscious attempt to focus the public on the "Communist Threat" led historians to tie him closely to Senator Joseph McCarthy and Richard M. Nixon. Mundt's biography reveals a cordial relationship with Nixon but a formal one with McCarthy. The latter was censured by the Senate. Mundt served on the Subcommittee on Executive Reorganization when the Hoover Commission recommended that voters elect an Administrative Vice President.
