Biographical/Historical Information

Clarence Lester Ver Steeg was born December 28, 1922, to John Arie and Annie (Vischer) Ver Steeg. One of twelve children, Ver Steeg spent his entire youth in the town of his birth, Orange City, Iowa. He was an excellent student, receiving high marks throughout his primary education. After graduating from high school in 1940, he attended Northwestern Junior College, now Northwestern College, in Orange City. To earn money while a student Ver Steeg embarked on a brief career selling imported Dutch novelties.

Ver Steeg joined the United States Army Air Forces in 1942 and, after basic and flight training, was sent overseas to the South Pacific. From 1943 to 1945, he saw combat as a navigator in a B-24 squadron. Participating in missions over Hong Kong, New Guinea, and the Philippines, Ver Steeg accumulated over 400 hours of combat flight experience. Among the military decorations he received was the Air Medal with three oak leaf clusters and five battle stars.

Ver Steeg did not allow the war to preclude the achievement of personal goals. In 1943, he married fellow Orange City native Dorothy Ann DeVries. He received his B.A. degree in absentia from Morningside College in 1943. After the close of World War II and his discharge from the military, Ver Steeg enrolled at Columbia University in New York City. There he received his M.A. degree in political science in 1946 and his Ph.D. in history in 1950. His dissertation was a study of the Revolutionary War financier and patriot Robert Morris. While pursuing his graduate degrees, Ver Steeg served as a lecturer and instructor in Columbia's History Department.

Northwestern University appointed Ver Steeg an instructor of history in 1950. For the next two years his major teaching responsibilities included his department's survey course in American history. In 1952, Northwestern promoted Ver Steeg to assistant professor and he became an associate professor in 1955. Ver Steeg attained the rank of full professor in 1959. That same year he took up position as visiting professor at Harvard University. While spending the 1959-1960 academic year at Harvard Ver Steeg served as the First Senior Member of the Center for the Study of Liberty in America. In 1966, he lectured on American history at the Summer Institute of Stanford University held at Alpach, Austria.

After teaching at Northwestern for twenty-five years, Ver Steeg accepted appointment as Dean of its Graduate School. From 1975 to 1986, Ver Steeg served the Graduate School with distinction. His tenure saw many improvements made in the structure and functions of the school, in the promotion of research, and in the development of the life sciences. In 1986, he stepped down from his deanship and resumed his teaching responsibilities. Ver Steeg would go on to teach courses in American history until his retirement in 1992.

Ver Steeg served on many university committees, most significantly during the 1960s as chairman of the Northwestern Faculty Committee to Plan and Build the New University Library. Working with the noted architect Walter Netsch, he played a crucial role in the development, design, and construction of the new library. Ver Steeg was also chairman of the Northwestern University Faculty Committee to Plan the Future of the University (1962-1965), another prominent committee, which made significant contributions to Northwestern during a period of considerable change.

A prolific author, Ver Steeg published eleven monographs and textbooks, dozens of scholarly articles, and more one hundred book reviews (see Publications List below). He received the Albert J. Beveridge Prize of the American Historical Association in 1952 for his book, Robert Morris, Revolutionary Financier (University of Pennsylvania Press). Northwestern recognized his many contributions to the university by establishing the Clarence L. Ver Steeg Professorship in the Arts and Sciences. In 2006, the Ver Steegs funded an endowment at Northwestern for the Dorothy Ann and Clarence L. Ver Steeg Distinguished Research Fellow award, the university's first endowed recognition for excellence in research by a Northwestern faculty member.

Ver Steeg died July 2, 2007, at the Presbyterian Homes of Evanston, Illinois. A funeral service and burial took place July 5th at Orange City, Iowa.

Scope and Content

The Clarence L. Ver Steeg papers span the years from 1927 to 2000 and are divided into six categories: biographical files, general correspondence, subject files, teaching files, public addresses, and publications.

The biographical files date between 1927 and 1998 with the bulk of the material dating prior to 1950. Filling slightly more than five boxes, the biographical files afford a remarkably detailed look into Ver Steeg's personal life, especially his youth, education, and military service. Preserved here are examples of school work and related items from throughout the span of Ver Steeg's formal education, from early childhood to his graduate studies at Columbia University. Among the most interesting items found in these files are the materials relating to his service in the United States Army Air Forces during World War II. Ver Steeg was able to document almost every aspect of his military experience. These materials include, among other items: flight manuals and notes from flight school, mission records and logs, a battle area map, first aid manuals, in-flight photographs, war leaflets and wartime family correspondence. Complementing these is an extended run of correspondence between Ver Steeg and fellow USAAF officer and pilot Earl Butts. More general biographical items include newspaper and magazine clippings pertaining to Ver Steeg and his wife, Dorothy.

Arranged across almost seventeen boxes, the general correspondence, including both incoming and outgoing items, dates from 1942 to 1999 and forms the largest component of the series. The correspondence is fullest between the years 1953 and 1976 with letters from any given year during this period filling multiple folders. Correspondence is arranged in chronological order and pertains to personal and professional matters. It is supplemented by correspondence found in the subject files. Taking up nearly nine boxes, these relate almost entirely to Ver Steeg's career as a scholar and span the period from his days as a lecturer at Columbia University to his retirement from Northwestern University. The subject files are an important source of information on Ver Steeg's involvement in professional associations and document his awards, recognitions, and opportunities for advancement as a teacher and administrator. Significant runs of correspondence relate to the American Historical Association's Committee on the Commemoration of the American Revolution Bicentennial, the work of the Institute of Early American History and Culture, Ver Steeg's service on Northwestern University committees, and his tenure as Dean of the Graduate School. Important material relating to the design and construction of the Northwestern University Library also is found here.

The teaching files contain lecture notes, syllabi, examinations, and grade records from Ver Steeg's service at Columbia, Harvard and Northwestern. These files fill about two boxes and are arranged first by school and then by topic or by course name or number. A few files pertain to Ver Steeg's teaching in the Stanford University program at Alpach, Austria, and to the Law and American Society Project, a program relating to curriculum development in elementary and secondary schools.

A few boxes of public address files include the chronologically arranged texts of various presentations, files on selected other speeches, and a larger volume of texts and correspondence relating to a series of presentations Ver Steeg made before social studies groups.

Publications files are arranged in nearly ten boxes and pertain to articles, reviews, and major works written by Ver Steeg. Some articles and book reviews are grouped chronologically. Other articles or publications associated with correspondence are filed individually and arranged alphabetically by title or topic. Monographs and textbooks are documented typically with more extensive bodies of correspondence between Ver Steeg and his publishers and may also include manuscript drafts. A few files concerning relationships with publishers complete the series.

Clarence Ver Steeg's lengthy 1970 statement of policy analysis and advice to Northwestern University's newly appointed president, Robert H. Strotz, has been added to the series at Box 43, Folder 5.
