  Biographical Note

The Young Republican National Federation or “Young Republicans” organization is a group for members of the Republican Party ranging from high school to forty years of age. Although groups for younger Republicans existed as early as the mid-1800s, the Young Republican National Federation was founded in 1931 at the urging of Herbert Hoover. The group supports Republican party political goals and candidates. Within the organization, there is both national leadership as well as local leadership.

The materials in this collection are all Texas based and belong to Young Republicans who were active during the 1960s and 1970s. They supported Senator John G. Tower and other Republicans during the period when both Texas and the South were transitioning from being one-party Democratic to one-party Republican.


  Scope and Content Note

This collection houses three different Texas Young Republican’s leaders papers: Neil Calnan, George Darby, and Linda Underwood. They are arranged in that order. Both Darby and Underwood gave their papers to Neil Calnan with the understanding that they would be donated along with his to the John G. Tower Library. The collections include papers dealing with Young Republican groups and issues in Texas that tie these young Republicans to more well known names such as John Tower and George H.W. Bush. In a 2011 interview with Mr. Calnan at the time the papers were donated, he stated that this particular group of Young Republicans were “white hats” - more moderate than their rival “black hat” conservative colleagues. Calnan also noted that there were 14,000 Young Republicans in Texas in 1967.

Neil Calnan Collection

  Biographical Note

Neil Calnan, a Houston attorney, was the self-declared strategist and hatchet-man for the “white hats.” He was first vice chair of the Texas Young Republicans (YR) in 1963-66 and ran for multiple offices later, generally losing by a few votes.

  Scope and Content Note

Neil Calnan’s collection contains six (6) boxes. Within these boxes are correspondence, official documents, campaign platforms, flyers, brochures, issues of the Young Republican Star, and meeting minutes among other materials. Each folder is labeled with the information held within and the names of important people whose correspondence is included in the folder.

Neil Calnan Collection of Young Republicans: Linda Underwood Scrapbook

  Biographical Note

Linda Underwood (d. 2013) was a very active participant in the Texas Young Republicans. She received the nomination for the “Outstanding Young Republican Woman in the Nation” award in 1967 and won the award for her participation and work on various campaigns and political activities with many different parts of the GOP as a whole. Around 1967 she moved to Washington DC where she was a member of Richard Nixon’s transition team and went on to hold other political positions. Underwood returned to Texas in 1970 where she remained active in Republican Party politics and government. A copy of her obituary can be found with the printed finding aid.

  Scope and Content Note

The scrapbook is housed in one half-size document box. It is in the original binding and order and has not been altered. It is short, but contains information about Underwood’s political career and the work she has done for the Republican Party. The pieces included span from 1965 – 1967.
