Biographical/Historical Information

Howard Franklin Bennett was born in Worcester, Massachusetts on January 3, 1911, the only son of Abbie M. (Flagg) and Edwin Harlan Bennett. He attended the Worcester public schools, was editor-in-chief of the school yearbook and president of the student body at North High School. From 1929-1933, Bennett attended Amherst College as a scholarship student. He was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Amherst in 1933 with a B.A. in History. During the next five years Bennett alternated between teaching high school and pursuing graduate work at Harvard University. He was a recipient of the Thompson Fellowship in 1937 and was an Edward Austin Fellow in 1938. In 1939 he received master's degrees from Harvard both in History and Teaching.

Bennett began his doctoral work at Harvard in 1940 but was interrupted by the advent of World War II. He enlisted in the U.S. Naval Reserve and was commissioned a Lieutenant, j.g. in March, 1942. Bennett served in various capacities, including: Company Officer, Student Flight Battalion, 1942-1943; Instructor, Air Navigation, 1943; Executive Officer, U.S. Navy Flight Preparatory School, 1943-1944; Air Combat Intelligence Officer on the U.S.S. Essex, Pacific Fleet, 1944-1945; and in the Aviation History Office, 1945-1946.

Bennett returned to Harvard in the spring of 1946. The following autumn he accepted a position as Assistant Professor of Business History at Northwestern University. In addition to fulfilling his teaching responsibilities, Bennett continued work on his dissertation, “The Development of Northern Missouri: Land and Colonization Policy of the Hannibal and St. Jo Railroad, 1850-1870”, and received his Ph.D. History from Harvard in 1951. During the same year he married Elizabeth Maurine Hoover, a secondary school teacher.

Prompted by the Korean Conflict, Bennett re-enlisted in the Naval Reserve in 1951 and served on active duty until 1953 as an Air Intelligence Officer. He remained in the reserve as Commanding Officer of the Naval Air Intelligence Unit at Glenview, Illinois. Bennett attained the rank of Captain in 1960 and retired from the reserve in 1969.

After resuming his academic position at Northwestern in 1953, Bennett began work on a history of the Bodine Electric Company, the largest producer of fractional-horsepower motors in the United States, which Appleton-Century-Crofts published as Precision Power in 1959. Precision Power was hailed as a pioneering effort in business history because Bennett had chosen to examine a small business rather than the usual blue-chip corporation.

Bennett also held memberships in many professional societies, including the Lexington Group, which he co-founded in 1946. The Lexington Group was established to promote interest in railroad history. Bennett served as secretary-treasurer and editor of the Lexington Group Newsletter from 1954-1969. In addition to his Lexington Group activities, Bennett contributed many articles and reviews to the American Historical Review, the Journal of American History, the Business History Review, and other journals.

In 1955 Bennett was appointed chairman of the Department of Business History in the School of Commerce, and became a full Professor of Business History in 1960. While performing increasingly more arduous duties, Bennett also found time to serve on a number of committees in the School of Commerce, the Graduate School of Management, and the University. Bennett began teaching courses for the Northwestern Institute for Management in 1961, and subsequently served on the Institute curriculum committee. From 1964-1969 he also was President of the Student Publishing Company, the non-profit corporation that published the student newspaper, the Daily Northwestern.

In addition to his university-related activities, Bennett was also involved in several projects outside the university. He lectured for an A.T.&T. management pro-gram in 1959 and taught in a comparable program for Illinois Bell in 1960. In 1962 and 1964 Bennett wrote and edited material for the World Book Year Book Trans-vision series. In 1964 Bennett was also a planning consultant and discussion leader for a General Electric management program. During the summers of 1965-1967 he directed the National Defense Education Act Summer Institute for Secondary School Teachers at Northwestern.

On New Year's Eve, 1968, Bennett and his wife were involved in an automobile collision in San Francisco. As a result of the accident Bennett was partially paralyzed and was compelled to curtail all his academic and professional activities. In August 1969 he was moved from a hospital in San Francisco to the Veteran Administration Hospital in Downey, Illinois. For the next five years Bennett was in and out of the hospital, until his death at Downey on September 21, 1974.

Scope and Content

The Howard F. Bennett Papers comprise 27 boxes of material spanning the years 1929-1974. The Bennett papers have been arranged into eleven general categories: Biographical Materials, Undergraduate and Graduate Materials, Correspondence, Department of Business History, Course Materials, Syllabi, and Lecture Notes, Northwestern-Related Activities, Northwestern Institute for Management, Nation Defense Education Act Summer Program, Non-Northwestern Activities, Publications and Unpublished Manuscripts and Restricted. The following materials were removed from tie collection and placed in the appropriate series: Northwestern Institute for Management, 2 boxes; Graduate School of Management, 2 boxes; Board of Student Publications, 1/2 box; National Defense Education Act Summer Program, 2 boxes; Leadizing Company Records, 5 boxes; and Graduate School of Management Case Studies, 5 boxes.

The Biographical Materials include vita, awards, clippings, press releases; Dunhill Fertilizer correspondence, from a small cooperative organized by Bennett; and personal correspondence, almost entirely with his wife and relatives.

The Undergraduate and Graduate Materials include Bennett's notes, exams and term papers from Amherst and Harvard; also included are his research notes for his dissertation and three copies of his dissertation manuscript. The notes and exams are arranged chronologically by folder, and by subject within each folder.

The Correspondence is divided into two sections: General Correspondence, arranged chronologically, and Subject Correspondence, arranged alphabetically by folder title. The General Correspondence includes, in the main, short-term, routine correspondence. The Subject Correspondence, being more substantive and prolonged, includes correspondence with professional societies, publishers, former students, and Northwestern administrators. Correspondence directly related to other categories has been retained within those categories.

The Department of Business History material includes departmental correspondence, teaching schedules and room assignments, personnel correspondence, resumes, and appointment books.

The Course Materials, Syllabi, and Lecture Notes include tests, lecture schedules, handouts, lecture notes, and students' papers for each course Bennett taught. Business History C40 and C43 are listed together because C43 was only a change in course number.

The Northwestern-Related Activities include almost exclusively committee notes and minutes. The exceptions are folders on the Graduate History Club and Faculty Meeting Notes. The committees are divided into two sections: school-related and universities related, and are arranged chronologically within each section.

The Northwestern Institute for Management materials are divided into three sections: General Materials, Background Materials for Specific Case Studies, and General Background Materials for Case Studies. The General Materials include correspondence, course notes, curriculum proposals, and annotated case studies. The Background Materials are listed alphabetically by folder title and include material used in developing case studies for Northwestern. The General Background Materials were assembled for general reference and are listed alphabetically by folder title.

The National Defense Education Act Summer Program material includes correspondence with government officials, course materials, and notes for developing course materials.

Non-Northwestern Activities is divided into three sections: U.S. Naval Reserve, Project for Nelson's Encyclopedia, and the A.T.&T. Summer Executive Training Program. The Naval Reserve material includes official correspondence, travel vouchers, and training orders, and miscellaneous non-dated notes from various training programs. The Nelson's Encyclopedia material includes several drafts of entries prepared for this publication. The A.T.&T. material includes correspondence, notes for the preparation of teaching materials, and several articles written specifically for the program.

The Publications and Unpublished Manuscripts material is divided into four sections: speeches, book reviews, Precision Power material, and World Book Year Book material. The speeches include miscellany, speeches for the Illinois Bell management conferences, final speeches for the Northwestern Institute for Management, and “The Lady or the Tiger”, a speech about profits and social responsibility. The book reviews are divided into two categories: typescripts and printed copies and are arranged chronologically. The Precision Power material includes correspondence with the publisher and the Bodines, the owners of the company, financial records of the project, and the bibliography with accompanying notes. The World Book material includes drafts and proof sheets for the map overlay projects.
