Biographical Note

Richard Lawrence Grace Deverall was born in Brooklyn, New York, on September 20, 1911. He began work as a machinist apprentice in 1925 and continued his education at night school. Deverall later attended Newark Institute of Technology (1930), Columbia University (1931-1934), and Villanova College (1935-1938), where he received a BS in Sociology. A devoted Catholic, Deverall founded and co-edited The Christian Front (1936-1939), and its successor, Christian Social Action (1939-1942).

Deverall began working with organized labor after moving to Detroit in 1939. While in Detroit he taught labor history at Assumption College in nearby Ontario, Canada, and became the first executive secretary of the Detroit branch of the Association of Catholic Trade Unionists (1939-1940). In 1940 the United Automobile Workers Union (UAW) hired Deverall to work in its Education Department. He quickly advanced to Chief of the Labor Education post in the UAW (1940-1942). When the UAW reorganized the Education Department in 1942, Deverall moved to Washington and worked with the Office of War Information as a special advisor on labor matters. In mid-1943 Deverall quit the OWI and joined the United States Army. Deverall progressed from private to 2nd lieutenant during World War II and was stationed in post war Japan in a military capacity until 1948. He served as an MP in the 11th Airborne Division in Dendai, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, and then later was stationed in Tokyo as the Chief of the Labor Education Branch, Labor Division, Economic and Societies Section. In this capacity Deverall created and supervised labor education programs in an attempt to assist in the creation of stable, democratic, anti-communist labor unions in reconstructed Japan. In August 1948 Deverall left the military and began working directly for organized labor.

The American Federation of Labor (AFL) employed Deverall in a number of international positions throughout the 1950s. He was the Asia representative of the AFL's Trade Union Committee from 1949 to the middle of 1952. Deverall then held the same position in Japan, headquartered in Tokyo, from the middle of 1952 to 1955. Lastly, Deverall served as the AFL-CIO's Special Assistant to the Assistant General Secretary of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU) in Brussels, Belgium. The threat of communist infiltration in the Asian labor movement and throughout the world, as well as a strong dedication to Catholic social activism, preoccupied Deverall in all of his appointments in the military and the labor movement in the 1940s and 1950s. From the mid-1940s through the mid 1950s Deverall published an endless stream of historically based political tracts that promoted his concerns about the growth of international communism abroad and the importance of a stable labor relations system with democratic trade unions to counter that influence. Deverall continued to publish extensively in newspapers and magazines on labor and politics, often in Catholic-based periodicals. He died in Florida in 1980.

Scope and Contents

The Richard Deverall Papers are composed of 15 linear feet of correspondence, reports, clippings, class notes, and publications that span 1928-1959. The collection encompasses the first half of Deverall's adult life, but focuses most heavily on his overseas activities in the military and in the labor movement in the 1940s and 1950s. Much of the material relates to Deverall's activities in helping create democratic anti-communist trade unions in Asia, particularly in Japan and India. His reports and correspondence painstakingly detail the political, labor, and social situations of the countries he was living, whether it be in the military during World War II, or in occupied Japan, India, or other parts of Asia in the post-war period. The collection also includes Deverall related publications, like numerous pamphlets he authored, newsletters and magazines he edited, clippings from newspapers and magazines, as well as a small amount of personal materials, such as class notes from college courses.

The collection is divided into five series: Personal, 1928-1956; United Automobile Workers, 1940-1942; Military Service, 1942-1948; Free Trade Union Committee, American Federation of Labor, 1949-1955; and International Confederation of Trade Unions, 1956-1959.

The first series, Personal, 1928-1956, includes magazine and newspaper clippings of articles either written by Deverall or about Deverall, a number of Deverall authored pamphlets, personal correspondence, college lecture notes, and a small amount of official documents, such as Army discharge papers. The second series, United Automobile Workers, 1940-1942, documents Deverall's short tenure in the UAW Education Department. It includes pamphlets and newsletters published by the UAW's Education Department under his leadership. The third series, Military Service, 1942-1948, contains Office of War Information reports on labor conditions in the United States, correspondence and reports documenting Deverall's life in the military, and lengthy reports on the social, political, and labor situation in post-war Japan. It also contains Deverall's extensive general notes on Japan. The fourth series, Free Trade Union Committee, American Federation of Labor, 1949-1955, is divided into the India Office and the Japan Office subseries. The India Office (1949-1952) is comprised of correspondence, reports, and educational/instructive pamphlets. The Japan Office (1952-1955) contains correspondence, reports, and educational/instructive pamphlets, bulletins and newsletters. Some of the published materials are in Japanese. The final series, International Confederation of Trade Unions, 1956-1959, contains correspondence and reports to Jay Lovestone and George Meany on International Confederation of Trade Unions activities.

NOTE: Researchers should be aware that Deverall bound 90% of the material in the Richard L.G. Deverall Papers. The collection includes 128 bound volumes of various sizes. Each bound volume is treated the same as an individual folder in the box and folder listing, although each volume contains a much greater amount of material than individual folders usually hold.
