From COMM 455 student Corey Kaminsky:

1) “The idea of a president speaking in anything but his own words was unaccptable. Judson Welliver’s tittle was “literary clerk” when he began White House service for Warren Harding in 1921. Few Americans then or later knew anything about him or his job. He is remembered chiefly, if at all, for coining the term ‘the Founding Fathers.'” From “All the President’s Words” by Carol Gelderman.

2) Judson Welliver was mentioned in this article regarding a letter Harding “wrote” and signed. The article questions how much of the letter Harding actually wrote and how much was written by his advisors and staff such as George Christian and Judson Welliver.

3) Judson Welliver is cited in this article on migration and immigration. “This table leads Mr. Welliver to remark that the report of a great return of aliens to Europe to take part in the war was very much a fiction.”

4) “As I read the accounts of recent presidential campaigns, I think how greatly complicated has become the work of a nominee, beside that of so recent a period as 1892, Senator Harding, was surrounded by a group of assistants…” From an article in the Proceedings of the Massachusetts Historical Society.

5) Judson C. Welliver, “Herbert Clark Hoover,” Review of Reviews, March 1920, p. 261. is cited in regards to the following quote: “Some were not willing to wait so long for Hoover’s services. In England, Hoover’s CRB activities had done much to impress the British with his skill. Some said that it was possible the British contributions to the CRB had been fully compensated by Hoover’s success in curbing the operations of food profiteers.”

Kaminsky also found the magazine cover featured above that highlights an article in the issue authored by JW.
