Marriner S. Eccles Papers

University of Utah

A digital collection of the papers of Marriner S. Eccles, chairman (1934-1948) and member (1948-1951) of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Marriner S. Eccles was the architect of the Banking Act of 1935, which restructured the Federal Reserve System into its current form. He was heavily involved in the Bretton Woods negotiations that created the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, and he served as a key economic policy advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This collection provides research material about the Federal Reserve System, particularly during the 1930s and 1940s, as well as Marriner Eccles's role in monetary and fiscal systems of the United States during those years.

More Information

Materials are held by the University of Utah, J. Willard Marriott Library, Special Collections Department. The materials available on FRASER represent only a portion of the collection. Additional information about the complete collection is available at

Most materials in the Marriner S. Eccles collection were originally organized in topical loose-leaf binders by Va Lois Egbert, secretary to Eccles for almost three decades. When the collection was donated to the University of Utah, the documents were processed and placed in archival boxes and folders, along with additional documents that had not been organized by Egbert, retaining much of the original organization. The order of the boxes reflects the arrangement of the documents digitized from the collection as they are currently physically arranged. (Note: Items with copyright restrictions for which we have not obtained permission to post on FRASER are not included on this site; however, these items are available in the complete collection at the University of Utah.)
