1925-1991
21 boxes (10.5 linear feet)
Call no.: MS 360

Charles Lewis Whipple was a noted journalist, editor, and the first ombudsperson for the Boston Globe. As a student at Harvard in the 1930s, Whipple joined the Young Communist League, carrying his radical politics with him when he joined the Globe staff in 1936 and became an active member of the American Newspaper Guild. Although classified as unfit for military duty due to the loss of vision in one eye, Whipple joined the Red Cross during the Second World War, and served with distinction with over thirty months of overseas service. After returning to civilian life and severing ties with the Communist Party, he resumed his position at the Globe, rising steadily to become editor of the opinion page in 1962 and ombudsperson in 1975. An editorial he wrote in 1967 is considered the first editorial in a major American newspaper to oppose the war in Vietnam. Although he formally retired from the Globe in 1979. Whipple worked an additional three years with the Xinhua News Agency in Beijing as editor of the Beijing Review and the China Daily, China's first English-language daily. Whipple died in Northampton, Mass., in 1991, following complications from surgery.

A mixture of personal and professional correspondence, writing, and subject and clipping files, the Charles Whipple Papers document a long and exceptional career in journalism. The diverse roles that Whipple filled at the Boston Globe from the 1930s through 1970s resulted in rich documentation of his work as an organizer for the American Newspaper Guild on the eve of the Second World War; his writing and editorial work during the Vietnam War and as the Globe's Ombudsman in the 1970s; and the three years he spent in China setting up an English-language newspaper during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Background on Charles Whipple

Charles L. Whipple, ca.1935

A noted journalist with the Boston Globe, Charles L. Whipple earned national attention in 1967 as author of the first editorial at a major U.S. newspaper to oppose American involvement in the War in Vietnam. Born in Salem, Massachusetts, on May 18, 1914, the son of a successful dry goods merchant, Whipple had deep New England roots, claiming descent from both a Salem witch and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. A precocious student, he graduated from Lexington High School in 1930 at the age of 16, and being too young for college, prepped at Exeter for an additional year before entering his father's alma mater, Harvard.

Despite coming from privilege, Whipple was drawn to radical politics, joining the Young Communist League in his sophomore year in 1933 and remaining active as he continued on to the study of law, intending to become a labor attorney. Whether it was because of his politics or other matters, Whipple's career plans took a sharp turn in 1936 when he ran afoul of a professor in property law, who failed him for skipping a class, resulting in dismissal from school. After recovering from the "horrible shock," Whipple spent the summer selling Realsilk hosiery door-to-door before landing a position as a copy boy at the Boston Globe in September. He quickly found his niche in journalism. A talented writer with a keen intellect, Whipple moved up to become a cub reporter, earning bylines for covering local and national politics.

Although he later claimed that his drift away from Communist sympathies began when he started as a newspaperman, Whipple appears to have remained true to his radical politics. At the Globe, he joined the American Newspaper Guild, a union which had been organized three years previously by the left-wing journalist Heywood Broun and which in 1937, shifted affiliation from the AFL to the more radical CIO. A part of a small Communist study group within the union, Whipple rose quickly to become Secretary for the Boston chapter.

As the threat of entry into the Second World War loomed over the United States in 1940, Whipple left the Globe to become a full-time international representative for the American Newspaper Guild. Although he later claimed that he moved to the Pittsburgh area to break ties with the Communist Party over its agitation to keep the U.S. out of the conflict (a stance it held before the German attack on Russia), Whipple was actually charged by the union with directing the 1941 strike against the Aliquippa Daily Gazette.

Whatever his political views had become, Whipple was eager to join in the struggle. Classified IV-F (unfit for active duty) due to the loss of sight in one eye, he nevertheless managed to enlist with the Red Cross in September 1942, serving thirty months in Europe and earning a Purple Heart for minor wounds sustained while evacuating soldiers soon after the invasion of Normandy. By the middle of 1945, Whipple was serving as a Red Cross Field Director with the rank of Captain, working with the 21st Army Group to supply liberated American Prisoners of War while they awaited transfer home.

When he returned to civilian life in 1946, Whipple resumed his old job with the Globe. His talent and dedication earned him an appointment as editor of the newspaper's opinion page in 1962, and after he resigned that position in 1975 to make way for a woman editor (Anne Wyman), he became the paper's first Ombudsperson. Having turned against the war in Vietnam early on, he editorialized regularly against American involvement and traveled there in 1968 to report on the war firsthand.

After more than forty years' at the Globe, Whipple stepped down in 1979, although he did not fully retire. With his second wife, Priscilla, he moved to Beijing, China, to work with Xinhua News Agency and the Beijing Review to establish China's first English-language daily, the China Daily, in 1981. Three years later, the Whipples returned to Massachusetts and settled into full retirement in Leverett, Mass. Charles Whipple died at Cooley-Dickinson Hospital in Northampton on May 12, 1991, following complications from surgery.

Scope of collection

A mixture of personal and professional correspondence, writing, and subject and clipping files, the Charles Whipple Papers document a long and exceptional career in journalism. The diverse roles that Whipple filled at the Boston Globe from the 1930s through 1970s resulted in rich documentation of his work as an organizer for the American Newspaper Guild on the eve of the Second World War; his writing and editorial work during the Vietnam War and as the Globe's Ombudsman in the 1970s; and the three years he spent in China setting up an English-language newspaper during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

As a writer, Whipple left not only copies of many original articles he wrote for the Boston Globe, but essays dating during his undergraduate years at Harvard, short stories and poetry, and a copy of his book, "War in Vietnam." His correspondence can be quite revealing of his attitudes toward his profession, contemporary politics, and the people he encountered along the way.

Series descriptions

The biographical files in the collection contain scattered material pertaining to Whipple's childhood and family life, his time as a student at Harvard, including his membership in the Young Communist League and the Harvard Liberal Club, and his later career in journalism. Of particular note are two folders containing documentation of Whipple's military service during the Second World War and several (incomplete) chapters from an autobiography that Whipple worked on late in life. Three folders from the autobiography were found empty upon transferal to SCUA.

1931-1989
2 boxes

Whipple's diverse writing ranges from poems to personal reflections, and short stories, some of which reflect Whipple's left-leaning politics. Among the more interesting works are a large essay entitled "The Non-partisan league: An agrarian revolution in North Dakota," and a political piece about the left-wing student movement entitled, "The Man with the Beard". The most substantial works in the series are Whipple's small book, "The War in Vietnam," and "Dirty Money", a popular article on Massachusetts political life that appeared in the March 1961 issue of The Atlantic.

1926-1990
6 boxes

Whipple's correspondence with family, friends, and colleagues spans nearly his entire adult life, from his entry in Harvard through his final work in newspapers in the People's Republic of China in the late 1970s. Somewhat scattered, the series includes both incoming and outgoing letters with Harvard friends, his family, and professional colleagues, touching on subjects ranging from his experiences with the Red Cross while attached to the 8th Infantry Division to his relationship with a woman named Margaret Newman, his work with the Beijing Review.

An active member of the Boston branch of the American Newspaper Guild from 1936-1941, Whipple gathered an eclectic assortment of dues letters, drafts of meeting minutes and proceedings, agenda lists, drafts of new rules, correspondence between members, and copies of the American Newspaper Guild Gazette, concentrated especially during the two years he worked as a fulltime organizer in 1940-1941. The ANG correspondence includes an interesting series of letters with Milton Murray of the Detroit Times, who like Whipple, drew away from his commitment to the Communist Party, in which the two discussed their careers, life, and new issues with their jobs.

1925-1990
7 boxes

The subject files in the Whipple papers were apparently kept to support Whipple's research and writing on topics ranging from the Federal Communications Commission, to Channel 5, and a controversial poem published in the Chelsea School District. of articles on Cuba and President Fidel Castro. Materials include manuscripts, drafts, clippings, articles, poetry, and reports.

1950-1990
4 boxes

Series 6 contains a wide-ranging collection of news clippings and articles, either written by or about Whipple.
