BLACKWELL, MORTON C.: Files, 1981-1984 (26 l. ft., Boxes 1-65)


Office of Public Liaison: Special Assistant to the President, 1981-1984




Born in La Jara, Colorado, Morton Blackwell attended Louisiana State University during the 1960s.   He was politically active from a young age, serving as a college Republican state chairman, and attending the 1964 Republican National Convention as the youngest elected delegate pledged to Barry Goldwater. Throughout 1965-1970 he worked as executive director of the College Republican National Committee in Washington, DC, and also served on the Louisiana Republican State Central Committee.  From 1972-1979 Mr. Blackwell founded and served as chairman of the Committee for Responsible Youth Politics.  He worked for the Viguerie Company and served as editor of The New Right Report from 1973 to 1979, and contributing editor to Conservative Digest from 1974 to 1981.  From 1979-1981 Mr. Blackwell was the policy director for Senator Gordon Humphrey (R-New Hampshire). He oversaw outreach to youth for the 1980 Reagan-Bush campaign, and was Deputy Director for Congressional Clearance for the 1980-1981 Transition. He is currently president of the Leadership Institute, an organization he founded in 1979 to train conservatives for positions in politics, the government and news media.  Since 1988 has held the post of Virginia’s Republican National Committeeman.  From 2004-2008 Mr. Blackwell served on the Executive Committee of the Republican National Committee.


Scope and Content


Mr. Blackwell joined the Office of Public Liaison in February 1981 as a special assistant responsible for veterans, fraternal organizations, Native Americans, religious affairs, and limited government organizations.  His general responsibilities were to facilitate communication between these groups and the White House, and raise support on various White House policies and initiatives.  He served as liaison to Native American groups until February 1983, when this function was transferred from the White House Office of Public Liaison to the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs (Rick Neal). After Jack Burgess left the White House in March 1983, Blackwell took over his Roman Catholic portfolio. Blackwell continued to work on Catholic outreach even after Robert Reilly was appointed as the main Catholic liaison in October 1983 (see also the Linas Kojelis collection).


Blackwell was the original White House coordinator for the Central America Outreach Working Group.  The Library has maintained the entire set of meeting files within the Robert Reilly collection and these files contain work product for Blackwell for the time period May 1983-October 1983.  Folders on briefings given by the group and other information about this Working Group from May 1983-October 1983 are still maintained in the Blackwell collection within a specific series on Central America.


The collection is arranged into six series: SERIES I: Subject File; SERIES II: American Indian Liaison; SERIES III: Religion Liaison; SERIES IV: Veteran’s Liaison; SERIES V: Central America, 1983; SERIES VI: Correspondence, June 1982-February 1984.
