Biographical/Historical Note

William Venroe Chappell, Jr. was a Democratic politician who served as a member of the United States House of Representatives from Florida's 4th congressional district from 1969 to 1989. He was defeated in his 1988 reelection campaign and died in Bethesda, Maryland on March 30, 1989.

Chappell was born in Kendrick, Florida, on February 3, 1922. During World War II he served in the United States Navy as an aviator from 1942 to 1946. He then attended the University of Florida (UF) receiving a B.A. in 1947, an LL.B. in 1949, and his J.D. in 1967. He practiced law in Marion County as a prosecuting attorney from 1950 to 1954.

He first entered politics in 1954 as a Representative in the Florida state legislature, serving as speaker from 1961 to 1963. He did not seek re-election in 1964, but was elected again in 1966. Chappell then went on to practice law as a member of the Chappell and Rowland law firm in Ocala, Florida.

Chappell entered national politics in 1969 when he was elected as a member of the United States House of Representatives from Florida's 4th congressional district. He was a moderate-to-conservative Democrat and served on the United States House Appropriations Committee and later as the chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense. He was defeated in 1988 and succumbed to bone cancer in Bethesda, Maryland, on March 30, 1989.


Scope and Content

The collection documents William Chappell's tenure in Congress beginning with the 91st Congress and running through the 100th Congress. Chappell represented the Florida 4th District which then comprised Flagler, St. Johns, Clay, Putnam, Volusia, and Marion counties, as well as parts of Duval, Lake, and Seminole counties. The collection consists of files on pending legislation, committee records, constituent mail, press releases and public statements, speeches and remarks, photographs, and biographical materials. There is also a small amount of audiovisual material.


Arrangement

The collection is divided into four series: "Series 1: Central files," "Series 2: Media files," "Series 3: Speeches and statements," and "Series 4: Miscellany."


Access or Use Restrictions

Access

The collection is open for research. The presence of constituent mail in this collection requires mediated access and researchers must consult with Special Collections staff before using the collection.


Administrative Information

Other Finding Aid

In the 1990s, a few files were pulled from the collection and made available to researchers. These dealt primarily with the Cross Florida Barge Canal and may be cited as part of "Series 2" in publications prior to 2015. In 2015, the files were returned to "Series 1: Central files," and are clearly indicated in the contents list. The previous finding aid also included speeches and statements, and most of the materials now in "Series 4: Miscellany."

Contents List

Series 1: Central files 1969-1988

"Series 1: Central files" contains most of Congressman Chappell's records, which were kept in a central file and grouped by congresses. The contents and file arrangement changed over the years. In general, though, each congress is represented by files related to pending legislation, committee records, and topical files. The latter contain extensive constituent mail. In the 99th and 100th congresses, constituent mail was shifted to files pertaining to specific House committees. There are no committee files after the 95th Congress and records for the 96th through the 98th congresses are fewer than for others. Among the many topics discussed in this series are the end of the Vietnam War, protests against school busing for integration purposes, the fuel crisis of the 1970s, and economic recession. On a more local level, the files related to the demise of the Cross Florida Barge Canal provide excellent documentation. Also of interest are files related to Chappell's efforts to create a national seashore which culminated in the establishment of the Canaveral National Seashore.
