Biographical Sketch

Back to table of contents

Tanya Melich was born in Moab, Utah on April 23, 1936. Her father, Mitchell Melich, was an active Republican and served in the Utah State Senate from 1942 to 1950. He ran for Congress in 1948, was Republican nominee for governor of Utah in 1964, served on the Republican National Committee for Utah from 1966 to 1968, and was solicitor for the United States Department of Interior from 1969 to 1973.

Melich was elected Phi Betta Kappa and graduated cum laude with a BS in Political Science from the University of Colorado in 1958 with general and departmental honors. In 1961 she graduated from Columbia University with her MA in Public Law and Government.

She worked as a newspaper reporter at The Salt Lake Tribune in the 1950s. In 1956 she was a Ford Foundation Political Intern for the Republican candidate for governor in Colorado.

1989 Rudolf Giuliani for Mayor, New York City; advisory committee

Her involvement in political campaigns has continued into the 21st century.

In the early 1960s she worked on the staff of the Foreign Policy Association. The Foreign Policy Association was, and still is, a national and nonprofit organization founded to educate Americans about international issues.[1]

Melich worked for ABC-TV News in its election unit and was Director of ABC-News National Election Research for the 1964 presidential election. From 1975 to 1981 she worked in various positions in the Corporate Affairs division of CBS, Inc.

In the mid 1960s she became involved in the Ripon Society, a group concerned with the policies of the Republican Party. "The Ripon Society is a moderate Republican research and policy organization dedicated to a common sense, pragmatic system of governance."[2] In 1974 she was elected the Ripon Society National Governing Board Chair.

Melich is one of the founders of the modern women's movement. In 1971 she helped organize the Manhattan Women's Political Caucus. She co-founded the New York State National Women's Political Caucus (NYS NWPC) in 1972. In 1973 she became affiliated with the National Women's Education Fund, the first organization designed to educate women on how to gain political power; she served as the Fund's president form 1980 through 1983. Concerned with the treatment of women in American society she wanted women's issues to have more of an impact on the Republican Party's agenda. In 1976 Melich co-founded the National Women's Republican Task Force and she was instrumental in organizing the group New York State Republicans for Women's Issues. In 1984 she co-founded the New York State Republican Family Committee. The organizations advocate that the Republican Party take a pro-choice stance and do more to recognize the concerns of women.

Melich served as an alternate delegate for the State of New York at the Republican National Conventions of 1972, 1976, and 1980. In 1980 she was appointed a Fellow at the Institute of Politics, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. During that time she wrote about the effects of new broadcasting technologies on the political process.

She has served as a member of several politically significant organizations such as the United States Civil Rights Commission New York State Advisory Board and the New York State Commission on Judicial Nomination. She also served on the advisory board of the White House Project, a project to "change biases against women's leadership ability, and foster the entry of women into positions of leadership, including the U.S. presidency."[3]

Her writings have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Newsday, Daily News, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, and the electronic publication Women's Enews. She has also worked as writer, researcher, and/or editor on numerous books including: Jaws of Victory (Little Brown and Co. 1974); The Lessons of Victory (The Dial Press, 1969); Thomas E. Dewey on the American Political System (Doubleday, 1966); ABC News Fact Book for the 1964 presidential campaign; The American Heritage State Series; and Peace: The Control of National Power (Beacon Press, 1963).

Bantam Books published her book The Republican War Against Women: An Insider's Report from Behind the Lines in 1996. The work received national attention from women's organizations and political groups. It was given the Gustavus Meyer Center award as an outstanding book on human rights in North America. In the book Melich argues that the Republican Party has sacrificed the needs of women in its quest for votes from right wing, highly conservative constituencies.

Melich has been honored by the Manhattan Women's Political Caucus as one of New York's outstanding women. She has received the New York NOW Susan B. Anthony Women of Achievement Award, the Alfred F. Moran Advocacy Award by Family Planning Advocates of New York, and been commemorated by the New York State National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL). She is a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow speaking on the United States political process and women. She continues to be involved in civic, social, and political organizations such as Planned Parenthood-New York City Council of Advocates, New York City's Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Advisory Council of the Women's International Leadership of International House. International House was founded by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. in 1924 to bring men and women of diverse ethnicities together for social, cultural, and intellectually stimulating programs. "The Women's International Leadership (WIL) Program at International House seeks to prepare a select group of women from diverse cultures and disciplines for the challenges they will face as future leaders."[4]

Since 1983, Melich has operated her own consulting business, Political Issues Management. As of 2002, she continues to write about women's political issues and the Republican Party. She also continues to be involved in political campaigns. Melich resides in New York City.

Tanya Melich
Scope & Content Note

Back to table of contents

The Tanya Melich Papers are particularly strong in documenting the political scene in the 1960s and 1970s both nationally and within New York State. The Papers include extensive reports related to political candidates, voting statistics, and political and social issues. The vast amount of material comes from her work on campaigns, the ABC-News Election Unit, and the Ripon Society. The main focus of the collection is the Republican Party's policies, candidates, and strategies.

The Papers also document Melich's concern and work regarding relevant social issues. Her work with the New York City Partnership, United States Commission on Civil Rights New York State Advisory Board, and International Women's Year are documented in the collection. Her interest in women's rights, equality, and reproductive freedom can be assessed through the numerous folders in the Subject Files, her writings, and the collection of publications regarding these issues.

Although Melich was involved in numerous organizations related to women and politics such as the National Women's Republican Task Force, New York State Republican Family Committee, Manhattan Women's Political Caucus, and others, there is little, if any, material related to these groups or her work on behalf of them. There is currently no documentation related to her work on the New York State Commission on Judicial Nomination, the White House Project, or several of the other civic and political organizations Melich was involved with. There are no materials specifically related to her business, Political Issues Management, or personal papers.

Related collections in the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives include: the records of the New York Republican State Committee (APAP-119) and the papers of Eunice Baird Whittlesey (APAP-145). Consult the Public Servants and Politicians subject page in the Archives of Public Affairs and Policy for additional records related to the administration of Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller.

The News Clippings folders contain articles or entire pages of newspapers. These include stories about the elections, editorials, Republican and Democratic platforms and candidates. Not all the clippings have been photocopied; the originals are often brittle and should be handled with care.

The material is arranged by date of its creation. For example, documents created in 1963 regarding the 1964 election are in the folders for 1963. Researchers interested in a particular election year should look in the folders of the prior year for pre-election reports, analysis, news stories, relevant correspondence, etc. It is also recommended that researchers look in the Campaign series for additional material related to a candidate, election, or platform.
