About this collection

Indiana State Library

This collection comprises the correspondence and speeches ranging from 1922 to 1945 from the Will H. Hays collection (L560) at the Indiana State Library. Hays served as the Republican National Committee chairman during 1918-1921 and was the campaign manager for President Warren Harding in 1920. Harding appointed Hays as postmaster general in 1921. Hays later became president of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA) from 1922 to 1945, where he established the Hays Code of acceptable content for motion pictures produced for a public audience. 

Digitization of the Will H. Hays collection is made possible through grant funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC).
