Introduction | Biographical Sketch | Scope and Content | Series DescriptionInventory

Introduction

The Raymond Spitulski Collection reflects the former Jeep employee's extensive experience at the Toledo Jeep Plant and as a United Auto Workers, Local 12, official. Also included in the collection are materials from the Society of Designing Engineers for which Spitulski was the national president. The collection spans the years 1935 to 1983, with the majority of materials dating from the 1950s and 1960s.

The collection was transferred to the Center for Archival Collection on March 29, 1985. No restrictions exist on the use of this collection and duplication is permitted for research purposes. This collection was processed by Steven Young and the register completed by Susan M. Hughes, manuscript processors, through a grant from the Ohio Historical Society.

Biographical Sketch

Raymond F. Spitulski, (1918- ), worked for the Jeep Corporation in Toledo, Ohio from 1941 until his retirement in 1983. Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, Spitulski studied engineering at the University of Toledo and Michigan State University. Beginning in tool and die design at Jeep, he eventually became an engineer for the Company.

Actively involved in his union, Spitulski was elected president of the Society of Designing Engineers in 1952 and served until 1976. In 1944, the engineering union voted to become a part of the United Auto Workers. As president, Spitulski was involved in all contract negotiations with Jeep, which occurred approximately every three years, and handled grievances between the members and the Company. He also served as bonus administrator for Kaiser Jeep and as a time study instructor for Region 2B of the United Auto Workers.

Scope and Content

One of the strengths of the Raymond Spitulski Collection is its materials pertaining to the Jeep Corporation. The years documented by the collection, 1935 to 1983, saw the Toledo, Ohio Jeep Plant under three different owners: Willys-Overland, Kaiser, and American Motors Corporation. The records illustrate Local 12's changing relationship with management through the agreements, departmental records and union newsletters. The most informative series on the employees' relationship with Jeep management is found in the Willys department subject files. Schedules, work assignments, job descriptions and interoffice memos illuminate the daily workings of this plant.

Another organization well represented in this collection is the Society of Designing Engineers. As a national president, Spitulski preserved proceedings and minutes as well as materials from various national conferences. Incoming and outgoing correspondence provide information on the Society's activities and concerns. As a member of the International Apprenticeship Committee of the United Auto Workers, Spitulski also was interested in the apprenticeship system in the skilled trades. Various materials on the Society of Designing Engineers' apprenticeship program outline this program and its training goals.

Other records in the collection show the activities of Local 12 at other Toledo and Northwest Ohio companies as well as Spitulski's individual involvement with the United Auto Workers, Society of Designing Engineers and International Skilled Trades Council. Correspondence found in the collection deals with exchanges between Spitulski and these organizations.

The subject files, one of the largest record groups, contain departmental files consisting of work assignments, job descriptions and correspondence from Jeep. Various engineering reports and reports on engineering layoffs at Jeep describe engineering wages and benefits. Several time studies conducted by the Research and Engineering Division of the United Auto Workers at the various Northwest Ohio companies are included.

A survey report of offices at the Dana Corporation outlines the job classification of union and nonunion white collar workers and efforts to unionize the white collar workers. Also contained in the collection are several other United Auto Workers' surveys and a report to the Toledo Labor Management Citizens Committee. A small number of agreements found in the collection are between Local 12 and Willys Jeep as well as the Ford Motor Company. Scrapbook materials such as newsletters and newsclippings add information on union activities during the 1950s and 1960s.

Union bulletins, trade publications and materials on the United Auto Workers apprenticeship program are among the printed material in the collection. Various agreements between the United Auto Workers and local companies as well as the United Auto Workers constitution are located within this collection.

Finally, a small number of black and white photographs depict various individuals possibly at the Jeep Plant. These are of little research value, however, as they are unidentified.

The Raymond Spitulski Collection has potential value to the labor historian. Information can be found on the United Auto Workers' involvement with companies in the Toledo area. Also those interested in studying the history of the skilled trades and how they have changed with increased computerization will find some valuable material.
