William Harrison Hays
William Harrison Hays, Sr. (November 5, 1879 – March 7, 1954), namesake of the Hays Code for censorship of American films, was chairman of the Republican National Committee (1918–21) and U.S. Postmaster General (1921-22).
Hays was born in Sullivan, Indiana. He was the manager of Warren G. Harding's successful campaign for the Presidency of the United States in the 1920 election and was subsequently appointed Postmaster General. After a year in office, he resigned to become the choice of the Hollywood movie studios to become the first president of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA) (1922-45). In the postwar period, this organization would be renamed the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

American Cinema of the 1970s » The Heydays that followed the Hays Days
Before the modern version of the Motion Picture Association of America’s film rating system existed, directors abided by the MPPDA’s set of censorship guidelines set forth in 1930 for any motion picture made for public viewing. Commonly known as “The Hays Code,” after Hollywood’s chief censor at the time William Harrison Hays, the code was comprised of a set of moral standards for films regarding what was to be considered “good taste” and what was prohibited from being shown in theaters.

COMM 330: Technology and Human Communication: The Motion Picture Code of 1930
Today, March 8, 2012, I will discuss the Motion Picture Code of 1930 or the Hays Code (which I will call it for the sake of my presentation). I found this topic to be most interesting because I had never thought to ask where movie ratings come from and learning a little history on film has helped me to appreciate what we view today.
