Description of Contents

The J. Paul Reason Papers, comprising 34.10 linear feet of documentation, span the entirety of Reason's career as an officer in the United States Navy, with a heavy focus on his experiences as a flag officer. To lesser extents, the papers also pertain to Reason's time as a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy and service as Naval Aide to the President.

The collection is composed primarily of textual documents, including letters, memoranda, reports, presentation slides, forms, invitations, schedules, speeches, press clippings, certificates, pamphlets, and books. Non-textual documents include photographs and audio recordings. Some documents are also available as digital facsimiles.

The Reason Papers are organized into fifteen series, three of which are based on office of origin. CORRESPONDENCE AS A MIDSHIPMAN consists of letters sent by Reason to his parents during the application process, and as a plebe at the United States Naval Academy. NAVAL AIDE TO THE PRESIDENT FILES concerns Reason's service in the White House during the Carter administration, with a heavy focus on the President's travels. PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICE FILES are the product of public affairs staff serving under Reason during his tour as Commander in Chief, U.S. Atlantic Fleet.

The remaining twelve series are based on document type. Basic biographical information pertaining to Reason and many of his colleagues can be found in BIOGRAPHICAL FILES. Additional basic information concerning Reason's career, as well as information regarding minority affairs, the first Gulf War, and the Tailhook scandal, is contained within the magazine and newspaper articles of NEWS ARTICLES. SUBJECT FILES contains conference materials, briefing books, and documents pertaining to investigations undertaken by Reason, particularly those undertaken in response to the Tailhook scandal and the Naval Academy Electrical Engineering cheating scandal. The bulk of Reason's official correspondence as a flag officer can be found in CORRESPONDENCE FILES. Additional correspondence in the form of invitations, as well as guest lists, and seating charts for special events attended by Reason, are contained within INVITATIONS. Reason's daily work schedules are housed within one subseries of SCHEDULES AND ITINERARIES. A second subseries, along with TRAVEL ORDERS, documents Reason's domestic and international travel for conferences, base visits, briefings, and public appearances. FITNESS REPORTS consists of evaluations of officers serving under Reason's command. CERTIFICATES AND AWARDS contains Reason's U.S. Navy commissions, diplomas, and miscellaneous awards, as well as certificates of appreciation signed by President Jimmy Carter. Two subseries of AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS are home to audio recordings and transcripts of interviews with Reason. A third subseries consists of digital copies of speeches, and a digital scrapbook, hailing from Reason's time as Commander in Chief of the United States Atlantic Fleet. PHOTOGRAPHS consists of photographic prints, both loose and bound into albums, depicting various events attended by Reason while a flag officer, as well as several Presidential events while Reason was serving as Naval Aide to the President. A small library of books, largely pertaining to ship commissionings and international navies, can be found in PUBLICATIONS.

Due to the inclusion of personally identifiable information, the use of selected files throughout the collection is restricted. For this same reason, the use of all files in TRAVEL ORDERS and FITNESS REPORTS is likewise restricted.

Research interests served by the Reason Papers include the naval career of J. Paul Reason; the 1991 Tailhook scandal and its ensuing investigation; character development at the United States Naval Academy in light of the 1992 Electrical Engineering cheating scandal; and minority affairs in the U.S. Navy.
