    Audovisual Materials

    • While the staff has not identified any other audiovisual or photographic coverage of Felt, coverage exists of two public events likely attended both by the President and Felt. Those events are the commencement of the FBI Academy on June 30, 1971, and the funeral of Director J. Edgar Hoover on May 4, 1972. Additionally, general audiovisual coverage exists of meetings and other contacts between the President or the White House Staff and the FBI Director Hoover or other bureau personnel.

    Haldeman Diaries

    • H. R. Haldeman, Nixon's Chief of Staff, refers to Felt on April 26 and 27, 1973, in the CD-ROM version of his diaries. These references do not appear in the print version of The Haldeman Diaries.
       
    • The CD-ROM of The Haldeman Diaries is out of print. Copies, however, can be located in libraries, including the National Archives' library located on the third floor of the College Park, Maryland, facility.

  • The Nixon Library has compiled the following list of references to the Silent Majority during the Nixon Administration.

    On November 3, 1969, President Nixon gave a televised address stating his policy on the Vietnam War. The antiwar protest movement had staged the October Moratorium, a massive, coordinated day long protest of the war on October 15, 1969; calls to end the war quickly had become more prominent. In the speech, Nixon ran counter to the antiwar movement's vehemence. He emphasized peace with honor, Vietnamization, diplomatic negotiations, and troop withdrawals. At the end of the speech, Nixon asked for the support of the "great silent majority" of Americans. The administration received a tremendous outpouring of public support for his policy, including thousands of letters and telegrams delivered to the White House. The speech had an electoral impact as well. Because of the outpouring of support, this speech further coalesced, within the administration and the Republican Party, the sentiment that Republicans could achieve electoral realignment and a new Republican majority.

    This subject guide seeks to list resources that show:

    • 1969 foreign policy analyses and options explored by the Nixon administration (primarily the National Security Files listings)
    • Aspects of the speech itself, the reaction to it, and its influence on Nixon (Subject Files, President's Office and Personal Files, many White House Tape conversations)
    • The administration's recognition of an electoral opportunity and moves to capitalize on the "silent majority" (Staff Member and Office Files)

    The guide is organized by collections in the Nixon Presidential materials

      • Conversation Number (Location): 482-24 (Oval Office)
        Date: 4/19/1971
        Participants: Nixon and Haldeman
        Summary: Nixon recounts a meeting with Senator McClellan. He states again his belief in the existence of a large silent majority, and the need for the administration to "stir it up a lot."
         
      • Conversation Number (Location): 249-29 (Executive Office Building)
        Date: 4/15/1971
        Participants: Nixon and Haldeman
        Summary: Haldeman discusses an interview with Look magazine. He mentions that he emphasizes the difference between the head of state and political roles of Nixon. He lists the November 3rd speech as a point that is sometimes considered a political move, but also reflects the president evaluating the situation, choosing the best path for the country, and then exercising leadership by going to the public, explaining to them, and searching for understanding. At this point, the pubic showed a dramatic shift in public opinion in support of the President's leadership.

        Participants: Nixon, Haldeman, and Kissinger
        Summary: The three men discuss the rhetoric of the upcoming speech on May 9, 1972. Because of the strength of military action in the speech, the group agrees the speech does NOT need strong rhetoric. Unlike the November 3, 1969 speech where the lack of military action required a strong rhetoric, this May speech needs to have a tone that lets the military action speak for itself.

Nixon comments, "We've gone to the well too many times now with regard to Vietnam. November 3, Cambodia, Laos. Laos is the last. I can't go and make another Nov. 3rd speech. The American people won't respond to that."
