This series is arranged alphabetically by correspondent. Four files, congressional correspondence and George Meany memos, contain only material prior to 1961 and have been placed at the beginning of the series. Letters to editors of magazines and newspapers were filed together under "editor" rather than dispersed and filed under the name of the publication.
