Biography

Donald R. Morris (1924-2002) was best known for authoring The Washing of the Spears: The Rise and Fall of the Zulu Nation (1965), a history on the Anglo-Zulu War. He wrote two novels, China Station (1951) and Warm Bodies (1957), and a number of articles for publication in various periodicals. His spent his career in the Navy, the CIA, and, after retirement, as a journalist for the Houston Post.
Morris was born in 1924 and raised in New York City. He graduated from Horace Mann, spent three semesters at the University of Michigan (majoring in Naval Architecture and Chinese) and enlisted in the Navy in 1942. He entered the United States Naval Academy, Annapolis in 1944 and graduated in 1948 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering.
He served on three destroyers and an LST, and worked on the Victory at Sea television series. After Naval Intelligence School and Russian language training, he was detailed to the C.I.A. in 1956. He resigned his regular commission in 1960, remaining with the C.I.A. and continuing in the Naval Reserve until 1972, retiring as a Lieutenant Commander. He earned two battle stars in Korea and holds the Navy Commendation medal and a South Vietnamese decoration for psychological warfare.
Morris served with the C.I.A. until 1972, retiring with a total of 30 years government service. His 17 years with the C.I.A. were spent almost entirely in Soviet counterespionage operations, with 11 years overseas. He was stationed in Berlin from 1958 to 1962, in Paris from 1965 to 1967, in Kinshasa from 1969 to 1970 and spent the last two years of his service in Vietnam with MACV/SOG.
Donald Morris started to write for publication while at the Naval Academy and continued to do so for the rest of his life. His two novels, though works of fiction, were partly inspired by his general life and naval experiences. Warm Bodies was a Reader's Digest Book Club selection and was also adapted into a motion picture titled All Hands on Deck. However, he is better known for his book The Washing of the Spears that was first published in 1965 and reissued several times. Morris also wrote a number of articles for publication in various periodicals.
He developed a career in journalism after retiring from government service. He was a news analyst for The Houston Post from 1972 to 1989, writing an op-ed column on national and foreign affairs four times a week. In 1989, he established The Trident Syndicate which published the Donald R. Morris Newsletter that continued his four weekly columns of news analysis. Morris also gave lectures on national and foreign affairs in addition to teaching writing and African history courses at some universities in Texas.
Throughout his life, he remained interested in African, particularly South African current affairs. He wrote a considerable number of columns with his take on South African and African politics particularly in the The Houston Post, visited South Africa several times and worked as an election observer in Lesotho (1993) and South Africa (1994).
Donald Morris died on 4 December 2002.

Scope and Content

The Donald R. Morris Papers contain material from his naval career as well as his writing career and includes manuscripts, research correspondence, newspaper columns, letters and papers from readers of his works, book reviews and bound volumes of his published works.
The collection begins with documents and photographs relating to his life as a student at the United States Naval Academy such as class registers, manuals, class work, family correspondence, navy correspondence and papers. These documents offer one a glimpse at Donald Morris as a person, his experiences as a midshipman in the Naval Academy of the forties and later in active military service as well as his thoughts on the navy as a career. Class work but more so letters to his family enable one to see his development as a writer and some of the experiences that later inspired his writing. Similarly, his training and work experience between 1956 and 1972 provides a contextualizing platform of sorts for his journalistic career after 1972.
The collection has a considerable number of papers arising from Morris's writing and journalistic career. They include numerous manuscripts and drafts of various published and unpublished articles, published works, research notes, research correspondence and some primary sources employed in the writing of The Washing of the Spears, correspondence with literary agents and publishers, legal documents relating to the publication of his works, book reviews, Houston Post cuttings, copies of the Donald R. Morris Newsletter, itineraries and some literature on African politico-economics. This material viewed in the context of his navy papers and the available material on his naval reserve career phase, offers the researcher the opportunity to see not only some of the experiences and literature that went towards informing Morris's writing process but also the writing process itself from its nascent stages to completion as he experienced it.
The Donald R. Morris collection also has a limited number of papers relating to his family and a section dedicated to his other interests. They include artwork (sketches), poetry, aviation and items he collected as part of his interest in the First World War including a number of military manuals that belonged to Laurence T. Stallings Jr., the father of Morris's first wife Sylvia Poteat Stallings, World War I veteran, literary critic, screenwriter, novelist, photographer (among other things) best known for his book against war; The First World War: A Photographic History.
