Biographical Note

John Gunther, the internationally known journalist and writer, was born in 1901 in Chicago. He was educated in the public schools there and graduated from the University of Chicago in 1922, where he had been literary editor of the Daily Maroon, the campus newspaper. Soon after graduation he began work as a foreign correspondent for the Chicago Daily News and remained in Europe until 1936. He was at various times in charge of Daily News offices in London, Berlin, Vienna, Moscow, Rome, and Paris, and has worked or visited in every European country except Portugal. In 1936, he published the results of his early years of European experience in the first of his "inside" books, INSIDE EUROPE, which sold more than 500,000 copies.

For more than twenty years Gunther continued the writing of these phenomenally successful "inside" books which include INSIDE ASIA (1939), INSIDE LATIN AMERICA (1941), INSIDE U.S.A. (1947), INSIDE AFRICA (1955), INSIDE RUSSIA TODAY (1958), and most recently INSIDE EUROPE TODAY (1961). In addition, Gunther wrote a number of other books on current affairs as well as biographical studies of major figures in American life. These include D-DAY (1944), concerning the Allied invasion of Italy and the Mediterranean war in general; BEHIND THE CURTAIN (1949), investigating conditions in Europe at the time, especially the countries behind the Iron Curtain; ROOSEVELT IN RETROSPECT (1950); THE RIDDLE OF MACARTHUR (1951); EISENHOWER: THE MAN AND THE SYMBOL (1952); TAKEN AT THE FLOOD: THE STORY OF ALBERT D. LASKER (1960). In 1949, Gunther published the deeply moving account of the death of his young son, John, two years earlier, of a brain tumor, entitled DEATH BE NOT PROUD. In addition, he is the author of a series of juvenile books, which are revised versions for younger readers of chapters from INSIDE AFRICA and INSIDE RUSSIA TODAY. He has also written three other children's books on historical and mythical characters: ALEXANDER THE GREAT (1952), JULIUS CAESAR (1959), and THE GOLDEN FLEECE (1959). In 1955, Gunther prepared the text and captions for DAYS TO REMEMBER, a pictorial volume on America, 1945-1955, written in collaboration with Bernard Quint, associate art editor of Life.

Scope Note

When the papers were deposited, they included all of the material used by Gunther in preparing his manuscripts. Much of this material was discarded. This included numerous clippings, generally from well-known publications, newspapers such as The New York Times, the New York Herald-Tribune, the Chicago Daily News, The Times (London), the Manchester Guardian, magazines such as the New Statesman, The Nation, Time, Life, Foreign Affairs, The New Republic, Colliers, and Foreign Policy Reports. Also included were government documents and press releases, United Nations documents, pamphlets, both tourist-type and informational issued by official agencies and private organizations, and reprints of articles. The collection also contained numerous bibliographical notes which referred to page or volume in some published work. There were also cryptic notes, apparently reminders to the author to relate some anecdote or to include some point of fact. Also discarded were unmarked copies of manuscripts and unmarked galley proofs. The materials retained in the collection were those manuscripts and notes which showed most clearly Gunther's methods and sources of information. Gunther has described his work methods in two articles published in Harper's Magazine, March and April, 1961, entitled "The Fun of Writing the Inside Books," and in a longer book version of these articles published in 1962 entitled A Fragment of Autobiography.

The collection includes notes, manuscripts and proofs in various stages and correspondence dealing with Gunther's works. The material in the collection can be subdivided under several headings: manuscripts, correspondence, notes, and miscellaneous materials.

The manuscripts include the original manuscripts for all of Gunther's works. These are generally rough typewritten drafts, done by Gunther himself. They are heavily corrected with both major stylistic and substantive changes. Most of these revisions are in longhand, but Gunther also used the "cut and paste" method to rearrange paragraphs and phrases. Once this first attempt was in reasonably acceptable order, the first formal typing was done by a typist. Gunther then heavily revised this typewritten draft in the same manner described above. This is the First Revision or Second Draft of the manuscript. Occasionally there are three drafts of some chapters. Again the complete manuscript with these new revisions was typed and this clean copy revised. This Third or last Draft, called "the Printer's Copy," was not so heavily revised, but even so, there are usually a dozen cuts and changes, mostly to change "verbal felicities," (Gunther's phrase) on every page. The book was set in type from this copy. (If there had been no time to completely retype the First Revision, only those pages or fragments of pages which were heavily revised were retyped and inserted to make up the Printer's Copy.) Also included are the original manuscripts of Gunther's articles for magazines or newspapers, portions of which were sometimes included in the published books in revised form, and news dispatches which Gunther often wrote while on his various trips.

For several of Gunther's works, carbon copies of the original manuscript were sent to readers for correction or checking. Those sections which were annotated by Gunther's "experts" or specialists also make up part of the collection and are clearly indicated.

Galley proofs could be called the Fourth Draft, since Gunther revised them completely, mostly for stylistic reasons, but also to bring the book up to date by adding new material about persons or events.

The correspondence concerning the "inside" books, which is not an extensive part of the papers thus far deposited, has been divided into two sections. Informational and Post-publication. The "Informational" correspondence concerns questions of fact, answers to Gunther's inquiries, comments on manuscripts sent to "experts," material bringing Gunther up to date, suggestions from friends and acquaintances of people to see, etc. The "Post-publication" correspondence is from readers who commented on Gunther's works. Post-publication letters from well-known persons and from people who had corresponded with Gunther before publication are generally included in the Informational file. The correspondence is filed with the manuscripts and notes for the book with which it is concerned. However, there are two additional boxes of correspondence which include material concerning Gunther's publishers, Harper and Bros, and Hamish Hamilton, and some folders of miscellaneous correspondence which do not deal with specific books.

The notes constitute the major portion of the collection to date. Gunther wrote his notes longhand on small scratch pads. The great majority of these notes are interview notes, some from well-known persons in government, business or the arts, others with the average citizen, such as taxi cab drivers or the like. Others are notes taken at lunches, dinners, or parties. Generally, these notes are identified by the last name of the person interviewed, but sometimes they are simply marked "embassy," or "lunch," indicating that the notes were taken at an embassy meeting or affair, or at a luncheon party, or they are marked with the first name, the initials, or perhaps the nickname of the person interviewed. Gunther clipped all of his interview notes apart into thousand of little "sniblets" which were carefully subdivided into topics. He was generally very careful when cutting the notes apart to indicate the interviewee. In arranging these notes, however, they have been drawn together by the name of the person interviewed. Where possible, from internal evidence, from the published works, from Gunther's agendas of persons to see, they have been identified. Many, however, are not, and are simply listed under the last name on the guide or by Gunther's own designation.

The miscellaneous notes include a wide variety of material. Many are unmarked notes, which are generally Gunther's impressions of someone, someplace or some event. These have been filed by topic. Other notes are sentences, phrases, or paragraphs, which Gunther jotted down and which were subsequently used in the manuscript in some form or another. Also included are outlines for his chapters, names of persons to see or interview, itineraries, schedules, and agendas, as well as check sheets, proof sheets, libel sheets, and watch sheets. These latter were made by Gunther to determine the accuracy of his manuscript after rereading.

The miscellaneous materials section is made up of articles, memoranda, news dispatches and notes by other persons. In some countries, Gunther would commission someone on the local scene to prepare information papers. News dispatches, articles, and other memoranda, both published and unpublished, sent to Gunther by his colleagues and some of his contacts are included in this designation.

The collection is in 122 boxes. A guide to the material follows. The manuscripts are arranged by book publication date, beginning with INSIDE EUROPE. Preceding the guide to each book, there is a more detailed description of the material in each section. The juvenile books, correspondence, and materials from CHICAGO REVISTED are located at the end of the guide.

INVENTORY

Series I: Inside Europe

INSIDE EUROPE, published in 1936, is the first of the "inside books." The papers are contained in seven boxes. With the exception of the chapters on Germany, there is only one complete revision of this material. The chapters on Germany, however, have two or three drafts. These additional drafts have been included with the original manuscript and have been so marked. The manuscripts, therefore, are as follows-

1. Original manuscript, including the additional drafts on Germany;

2. First Revision (Second Draft) which is a typed copy of the original manuscript, and is substantially the same as the published version; and

3. Galley proofs, with the author's corrections and additions.

The Printer's Copy was not included in the original deposit.

There were five editions of INSIDE EUROPE. The second edition (October, 1936) did not necessitate the setting up of new type, but merely required insertions. The manuscript inserts must be used with the pagination of the first edition. New chapters were also added. These manuscripts are found with the "Revised Edition." However, the last two editions, the New 1938 Edition and the 1940 War Edition, were complete reworkings of the book, including new typesetting. The pages of one of the published editions were pasted onto large sheets of paper and Gunther made his corrections on the pages themselves and in the margins. The original manuscripts of inserts and the new chapters are clearly indicated. In October 1938, there was another edition, entitled the Peace Edition, which included mainly a new introduction and one new chapter, entitled "The Fascist Offensive," which was inserted in the book as Chapter 7a. Galley proofs of the revisions are not included in the collection.

Manuscripts of twenty-one articles written by Gunther are also part of the papers. Most appeared in such magazines as Harpers, The Nation, and Foreign Affairs. They deal with a wide variety of subjects and have been listed alphabetically. Most are simply carbon copies of the manuscript. Several of the articles, or portions of them, were used in the published book, but only after being heavily revised. There are also press dispatches from the Balkans written by Gunther, and miscellaneous typewritten notes, mostly on Austria, where Gunther had been stationed for many years.

The correspondence concerning this book is not extensive. One folder contains several letters from U.S. Embassy officials in Rome, London, Prague, and Berlin which answer questions of fact posed by Gunther. There are also several letters from reporters answering certain of Gunther's questions. The post-publication letters came mostly from English readers generally pointing out minor errors of fact.

The research notes for INSIDE EUROPE are not as voluminous as those for some of Gunther's other books. He was, of course, much more intimately informed on European affairs, since he had spent eleven years in Europe as a foreign correspondent. There are some interview notes, particularly those on a talk with Thomas Masaryk, founder and first president of Czechoslovakia, several English politicians, and H. R. Knickerbocker, the well-informed American journalist. Most of the notes, arranged alphabetically by country and topic, are factual notes.

Among miscellaneous materials are articles, memoranda, and copies of dispatches by several of Gunther's colleagues.

Series II: Inside Asia

INSIDE ASIA, published in 1939, is the second of the "inside books." The materials for this work are contained in four boxes. The manuscripts are as follows:

1. Original manuscript, typed and corrected by Gunther

2. Printer's Copy, which is a typed carbon copy of the original manuscript (no. 1, above) with additional corrections, making the manuscript, therefore, the First Revision or the Second Draft.

The galley and page proofs were not included in the original deposit.

The original manuscript of the Second Edition, published in 1942, is a paste-up of the pages of the first edition with marginal corrections, numerous inserts, and a completely new chapter on Pearl Harbor.

The correspondence numbers about eighty letters, with Gunther's brief answers attached. It comes from all over the world, mostly pointing out errors in fact, or the misspelling of foreign words or names. Several letters, especially those from Sir Sekunder Hyat Khan, prime minister of Punjab in India, and Hendrik Van Loon, are particularly interesting. One letter, from Prince Chula of Siam, discusses political affairs in that country at great length, obviously from personal knowledge.

The research notes for INSIDE ASIA were not among the original deposit. Certain notes which deal with the 1942 Revision, as well as notes for an article in Fortune on the Middle East, are included in the collection.

Among miscellaneous materials are several long research papers on Palestine, Japan and China, apparently done for Gunther by observers on the spot.

Series III: Inside Latin America

The papers for INSIDE LATIN AMERICA, published in 1941, are contained in seven boxes. As with Gunther's first two "inside" books, there is only one complete revision of the manuscript. The manuscript material is as follows:

1. Original manuscript, typed and corrected by Gunther

2. Printer's Copy, which is a typed copy of the original manuscript (no. 1, above) with corrections-thus, the First Revision or Second Draft; and

3. Galley proofs, corrected, but incomplete.

During Gunther's fact-finding trip, he wrote several articles for the North American Newspaper Alliance, and made several radio broadcasts. The manuscripts of this material, some of it used, but only after complete revision, is included among the papers.

The correspondence concerning this book is not extensive. The Informational correspondence is, however, of some interest. Gunther corresponded with U. S. State Department officials and embassy officials in the various countries he visited. There are confidential letters about the internal political scene from, among others, Claude Bowers, Ambassador to Chile; Spruille Braden, Ambassador to Colombia; Vernon Fluharty, an embassy official; Laurence Duggan of the State Department; and Overton Ellis, a legation official in El Salvador. There is also correspondence with several American journalists stationed in Latin America. The material is arranged alphabetically by correspondent. The Post-publication correspondence, for the most part, deals with minor corrections of the text.

As in most of Gunther's other books, his major sources of information were his interview notes. Because Gunther did not list in his book, nor completely in his notes, the names of most of the persons whom he interviewed, it has been impossible to identify many of them. However, where possible, the interviewees have been at least tentatively identified. Gunther interviewed most of the Latin American presidents, numerous cabinet officials, politicians, journalists, American officials, and others. Among those interviewed were Getulio Vargas, president of Brazil; Pedro Aguirre Cerda, president of Chile; Eduardo Santos, president of Colombia; Fulgencio Batista, president of Cuba; Lazero Cárdenas, former president of Mexico; Victor Haya de la Torre, APRA leader in Peru; and Luis Munoz Karín, governor of Puerto Rico.

Among miscellaneous materials are memoranda on individual politicians and political events prepared by newspaper correspondents for Gunther's information. These notes have been included with the material on each country and, where possible, the author has been identified.

2. Printer's copy which is a carbon copy of the original manuscript (no. 1, above) with additional corrections.

Among other manuscripts are carbon copies of Gunther's dispatches, broadcasts, and articles written during his trip. During the D-Day trip he carried three credentials, and was working for three different organizations-the North American Newspaper Alliance, The Blue Network, and Readers' Digest.

The correspondence is not extensive, and is mostly made up of telegrams. One letter, however, from the American legation in Cairo, Egypt, concerns answers to certain questions that Gunther had submitted to the prime minister of Egypt.

The research notes also are not extensive. It would appear that most of the book was written from notes which Gunther kept in a diary during his six months in the Mediterranean area. However, the diary was not included in the original deposit. The majority of the notes concern the Balkan countries and the Middle East. Among the interview notes are those with Laurence Steinhardt, U. S. Ambassador to Turkey, and Sukru Saracoglu, Turkish prime minister. There are also miscellaneous notes on Field Marshal Alexander, Field Marshal Montgomery, and General Eisenhower, among others.

Carbons of broadcasts by Raymond G. Swing, Nov. 15, Oct. 28, December 22, 1943

Series V: Inside U.S.A.

INSIDE U.S.A., the fourth of the "inside" books, was published in 1947. The materials concerning it are contained in twenty-three boxes. The manuscripts for this work are as follows:

1. Original manuscript, typed and corrected by Gunther;

2. Specialist Review Copy, which refers to a typed carbon copy of the original manuscripts with Gunther's corrections which was sent to various "experts" around the country for comment. A complete copy of this manuscript has been kept, though many of the pages and chapters were not annotated by the experts. However, included among the Informational Correspondence are letters of comment by these experts which refer to the pagination of this copy of the manuscript. Pages with comments by Gunther's publishers are also included.

3. First Revision or Second Draft, which is only fragmentary. Gunther employed his usual "cut and paste" method and large sections were revised in longhand. However, only those pages which were most heavily corrected were retyped. Some complete chapters were also retyped. These retyped pages and chapters were then further revised and added to the Printer's copy.

4. Printer's copy, which is, for the most part, a corrected copy of the Specialist Review Copy (no. 2, above) with the retyped pages of the First Revision (no. 3, above).

5. Galley proofs, with author's corrections and additions.

The original manuscript of the second edition, published in 1951, was a paste-up of the pages of the first edition with marginal corrections and numerous inserts. However, the paste-up pages were not included in the original deposit. The original manuscripts of the inserts, which were included, are numbered consecutively and must be collated with the pages of the first edition. Some of the manuscript inserts are only a few lines in length, others run to several pages. Galley proofs of the second edition, with the author's corrections, also make up part of this section.

The Informational Correspondence is extensive. This category includes a rough outline and tentative table of contents sent to various people for comment even before Gunther set out on his fact-finding trip. Among those who responded are journalists Louis Fischer of The Nation and Nicholas Roosevelt of The New York Times, Thomas Lamont of the J. P. Morgan Co., and author Mark Van Doren. Gunther corresponded with hundreds of people, including all forty-eight governors, senators, representatives, state office holders, mayors, and numerous other state and local officials, asking certain questions such as "who runs this state or city?" There is also extensive correspondence with newspaper publishers, editors, and reporters whom Gunther met on his trips and who were asked similar questions, or brought Gunther up to date on events since his visit. In addition, Gunther corresponded with many of the people whom he interviewed, asking for clarification of some points of fact or interpretation. The correspondence with Gunther's "experts," who read the various chapters for accuracy, is also included in this section. The informational category contains both pre- and post-publication material. It is arranged by state and alphabetically within each state.

The Post-Publication correspondence is primarily readers' response after publication. It includes one folder from prominent persons and personal friends of Gunther, probably segregated by Gunther or his secretary. Included among the correspondents are Stephen Duggan, Director of the Institute of International Education, radio commentator Quincy Howe, Alf Landon, author Amy Loveman, journalist Anne O'Hare McCormick, H. L. Mencken, historian Allan Nevins, educator Anson Phelps Stokes, commentator Raymond Swing, and State Department official Sumner Welles. Apparently some of these comments were used by Gunther's publishers in their advertisements for the book. Specific correspondence commenting upon or criticizing individual chapters or parts of chapters, suggesting revisions, pointing out errors in fact, spelling or grammar, is arranged alphabetically by state and then by author. General correspondence relating to the book as a whole or a substantial portion is arranged alphabetically by correspondent.

The research notes, which make up the majority of material in this section, are mainly interview notes. Gunther interviewed governors, senators, representatives, politicians on all levels, editors, publishers, reporters, businessmen, labor leaders, educators, clergymen, civic leader, farmers, authors and hundreds of others. Where possible, the interviewees have been identified. A representative sampling of those interviewed would include Jonathan Daniels, editor of the Raleigh, N. C., News & Observer, Senator William Fulbright of Arkansas, motion picture producer Walter Wanger, Robert Hutchins, then Chancellor of the University of Chicago, Mayor Wilson Wyatt of Louisville, Kentucky, labor leader Walter Reuther, Howard Johnson, Chief Justice of the Montana Supreme Court, Harry Truman, then Vice President, Robert Moses, New York state and city official, professor Carl Friedrich of Harvard University, E. H. Crump, political boss of Memphis, Tennessee, David Lilienthal, director of TVA, Speaker Sam Rayburn, President George Albert Smith of the Mormon Church, Richard Neuberger, then an Oregon state senator, and author Lilian Smith, among others.

Series VI: Death Be Not Proud

DEATH BE NOT PROUD is a different type of work than any of Gunther's other books. It is a personal memoir and a memorial to Gunther's son, John, Jr., who died in 1947 of a brain tumor after a long and courageous struggle. The original manuscript of DEATH BE NOT PROUD is not a part of the papers deposited with the University of Chicago. Gunther donated the manuscript to the New York Public Library. However, a carbon copy of the original manuscript is included. The printer's copy and galley or page proofs were not a part of the original deposit.

The research notes for this work are, of course, very different from those in the rest of the collection. Included in this section are school and camp reports, medical reports, correspondence with doctors, and numerous longhand notes. These longhand notes, which had been cut into small pieces, record Gunther's own memories, the recollections of Frances Gunther, and of others, including Johnny himself, who kept a diary, of the events which transpired during the long illness. These notes have been arranged chronologically, as they were when deposited.

The correspondence is the most extensive part of the material on this work. There are two folders of personal correspondence, all post-publication, from friends of Gunther commenting on the book. There are also four boxes, containing approximately four thousand letters from the general public. The book obviously evoked strong feelings on the part of the readers. The letters are from people who had suffered similar tragedies, some whose relatives were then suffering from cancer, letters of general sympathy from children and adults from all over the world. The book had been condensed in The Ladies' Home Journal, in the Readers' Digest and its eleven international editions, and later in Coronet, thus having a very wide circulation. The correspondence has been arranged alphabetically within each alphabetical letter. One folder of letters has been segregated. They were used in the introduction to the second edition published in 1953. There is also one folder of letters to Lewis Gannett who wrote a review of the book for the New York Herald-Tribune, and one folder containing letters to Gunther on an article entitled "The Cancer in our Breasts," which was published in McCall's Magazine in 1950.

The material for the book is contained in five boxes.

Series VII: Behind the Curtain

The papers concerning BEHIND THE CURTAIN, published in 1949, are contained in five boxes. Like several other of Gunther's books, BEHIND THE CURTAIN was first conceived as a series of articles for Look magazine and the New York Herald-Tribune. In arranging the manuscripts, the Look and Herald-Tribune articles are included as the original manuscript. Gunther, in most cases, pasted the published versions onto pieces of paper and then heavily revised them. More than half the book, however, is new material. The manuscripts are as follows:

1. Original manuscript-Look magazine articles-however, only four of the manuscripts of the nine articles are included.

2. Original manuscript-New York Herald-Tribune articles, published under the general title "Inside Europe Today."

3. First Revision or Second Draft, which is the original manuscript for the book version, including revisions of above articles and additions.

4. Printer's copy, with author's corrections.

The correspondence concerning this book is not extensive, but among the more interesting letters are those from M. W. Fodor, a long-time European journalist connected with the American Military Government for Germany, and a letter from Dr. W. C. Weiskopf, Minister Plenipotentiary of Czechoslovakia to the United States.

The interview notes are of special interest. Gunther talked with most of the leaders of Europe during his preparation for the book. Among the many statesmen, journalists, businessmen, and others whom Gunther interviewed are Pope Pius XII, Prime Minister Alcide de Gasperi of Italy, Marshal Josip Tito of Yugoslavia, Matyas Rakosi, communist leader of Hungary, American Ambassador to Czechoslovakia Laurence Steinhardt, General Lucius Clay, American Military Governor of Germany, and Jacques Soustelle, Gaullist leader in France.

Series VIII: Roosevelt in Retrospect

The material for ROOSEVELT IN RETROSPECT, published in 1950, is contained in six boxes. The manuscripts for this work are as follows:

1. Original manuscript, typed and corrected by Gunther, however it appears that chapters 5B, 5C and 17 were not written at the same time as the rest of the original manuscript. The First Revision of these three chapters is included in the Printer's copy.

2. First Revision or Second Draft, with author's additional revisions and corrections;

3. Printer's copy, with author's corrections;

4. Galley proofs, with author's corrections.

The original manuscripts of three magazine articles are also included.

The correspondence, of which there are only four folders, indicates that this book evoked strong sentiments either for or against FDR. Among the more interesting letters are those from several people who knew or had met FDR and wished to relate to Gunther their own reminiscences. There is also a long memorandum by Grace Tully, FDR's personal secretary, on the inaccuracies in the book.

The majority of the notes are interview notes. Gunther interviewed more than eighty persons, and where possible, the interviewees are identified on the guide.

Series IX: The Riddle of MacArthur

The material for THE RIDDLE OF MACARTHUR, published in 1951, is contained in three boxes. The original manuscript and the First Revision were not included in the original deposit, nor were galley proofs, but page proofs, which were not heavily revised as was Gunther's method on galley proofs, are a part of the collection. The manuscripts, therefore, are as follows:

1. Printer's copy. with author's corrections;

2. Page proofs.

Also included among the manuscripts are carbon copies of news dispatches cabled by Gunther to Look magazine on the Korean War and the Far East.

The correspondence concerning THE RIDDLE OF MACARTHUR is not extensive. Among the letters of particular interest are those from Frank Rizzo, a high civilian official in the Occupation Government, and a letter from Samuel E. Morison on naval history. The Post-publication correspondence consists mostly of readers' comment, some quite irate over Gunther's interpretation of MacArthur.

The majority of the research notes are interview notes. Among those interviewed by Gunther were Emperor Hirohito, General MacArthur, Prime Minister Yoshida, various high American officers on MacArthur's staff, civilian employees of SCAP, Japanese politicians and businessmen.

Series X: Eisenhower-The Man and the Symbol

EISENHOWER-THE MAN AND THE SYMBOL was published in 1952. The materials concerning this minor work of Gunther's are contained in two boxes. The book grew out of a series of articles published in Look magazine in December, 1951. Gunther wrote three long articles for Look on Eisenhower and SHAPE, of which two were published. The manuscripts, therefore, for this book are as follows:

1. Original manuscript-Look magazine articles, typed and corrected by Gunther

2. First Revision or Second Draft, which is Gunther's original manuscript for the much longer book version. Gunther used an uncorrected carbon copy of the Look manuscript and using the "cut and paste" method, made numerous emendations, inserts, and corrections.

3. Printer's copy, with author's corrections.

The correspondence is not extensive, filling only two folders. Among the Informational heading is a memorandum from a Look official on Eisenhower as president of Columbia University. The post-publication correspondence comes from readers who had minor corrections to suggest.

The majority of the notes are interview notes. Gunther interviewed military officials on Eisenhower's SHAPE staff, journalists, and several European statesmen. Among them are Eisenhower himself, General Alfred M. Grunther, Jean Monnet, and General Lauris Norstad.

Series XI: Inside Africa

INSIDE AFRICA. published in 1955, is one of Gunther's longest books, running to over 950 pages. The materials concerning this book are contained in twenty-two boxes. The manuscripts for this work are as follows:

1. Original manuscript, typed and corrected by Gunther

2. Specialist Review copy. However, only those pages with comments are included as well as memoranda prepared by Gunther's "experts";

3. First Revision or Second Draft, which is a heavily revised copy of a carbon copy of the corrected original manuscript;

4. Printer's copy, which is essentially the Third Draft because of the heavy revisions, more so than in any other of Gunther's works;

5. Galley proofs, with author's corrections.

While in Africa, Gunther prepared numerous articles for publication in popular magazines. He used portions of these articles, though in a revised form, in his published book. The twenty-one articles are included in the collection, some in original manuscript, some carbon copies, some clippings.

The informational correspondence is extensive and has been arranged by country or area and then alphabetically. Gunther corresponded with numerous American and British diplomatic officials, government officials, United Nations officials, businessmen and many others. Among the letters of interest are those of Edgar Sengier, the head of Union Miniere in the Congo; the U. S. Ambassador to Ethiopia, Joseph Simonson; a memorandum from the Governor of the gold Coast (Ghana), Sir Charles Arden Clarke who read Gunther's chapter on that country in advance of publication; C. L. Simpson, Liberian Ambassador to the United States; Hamilton Fish Armstrong, editor of Foreign Affairs, on Morocco and North Africa; David Stirling, president of the Capricorn Africa Society; South African attorney and novelist Harry Bloom; the Governor of Tanganyika, Sir Edward Twining; and H. V. L. Swanzy, a high official in the Gold Coast Government.

The Post-publication correspondence is also extensive. It is primarily readers, response. Some of the letters, however, invite Gunther to address various groups, ask for additional information, or offer the correspondent's own views. The correspondence, which comes from all over the worlds, is generally favorable to Gunther's work, but many of the letters take exception to his interpretation, especially those from white settlers in Africa, and particularly in the Union of South Africa. Among the letters of interest are two from Dr. Hastings Banda, at present prime minister of Nyasaland, but then living in the Gold Coast; R. R. Knight, a member of the Canadian House of Commons, and Ann Morisett, an American novelist. Specific correspondence, commenting upon or criticizing individual chapters or parts of chapters, suggesting revisions, pointing out errors of fact, spelling or grammar, is arranged alphabetically by country or area and then alphabetically by author. General correspondence relating to the book as a whole or a substantial portion is arranged alphabetically by correspondent.

The research notes are arranged by country or by area. The majority of the notes are interview notes and, where possible, the interviewee has been identified. Gunther states that he interviewed 1503 persons while preparing his African book. Included among them were governors, colonial officials, embassy and consular staffs, journalist, African chieftains, missionaries, businessmen, nationalists, United Nations personnel, and private citizens. A representative list of the many interviewed would include General Mohammed Naguib, then dictator of Egypt; Kwame Nkrumah, prime minister of the Gold Coast; Edgar Segnier of Union Miniere in the Belgian Congo; the king of Ruanda; U.

Series XII: Inside Russia Today

INSIDE RUSSIA TODAY, published in 1958, was originally conceived as a series of five long articles for Collier's magazine. However, during Gunther's trip to Russia, Collier's ceased publication and Look magazine took over the contract. Look decided to print one very long article instead of the five previously commissioned. The book version, however, is in no way an extension of the Look article. Portions of the Look article are used in the book, but in a heavily revised version, and the approach to the book is from an entirely different point of view. The material concerning this book is contained in twelve boxes.

The manuscripts are as follows:

1. Original manuscript, First Revision or Second Draft (partial), Third Draft (partial) of Look article;

2. Original manuscript of book version, typed and corrected by author;

3. Specialist review copy, however, only those pages with comments by Theodore Shabad, Gunther's "expert," and by Cass Canfield of Harper and Bros. are includes;

4. First Revision or Second Draft, which is only fragmentary. Gunther employed his usual "cut and paste" method and large sections were revised in longhand. However, only those pages which were most heavily revised were retyped. These retyped pages were then further revised and added to the Printer's copy.

5. Printer's copy, with author's corrections and additions;

6. Galley proofs, with author's corrections and additions.

Gunther dictated several of the chapters; therefore, the original manuscript is the recordings. However, after the first typing, Gunther extensively revised these manuscripts, as was his method, and the typescript copies of the dictated chapters with the author's corrections have been included with the original manuscript. The recordings have been filed separately.

The Informational Correspondence is not extensive. it is arranged alphabetically and much of it concerns Gunther's Plans for his trip. Also included among the Informational Correspondence are some post-publication letters from certain of Gunther's personal friends who received complimentary copies of the book. The Post-publication correspondence, which is somewhat more extensive, concerns readers' comment on various questions of fact. It is arranged alphabetically.

The research notes have been catalogues in a different manner for INSIDE RUSSIA TODAY. Gunther reports that he took careful notes of conversations with about eighty Russians; however, many of his notes do not indicate their names or their positions. Rather than arranging the notes by subject, country, or area (and then by interviewee) as has been done with the notes for Gunther's other books, they have been arranged by chapters, according to the original manuscript designation. Therefore, those interview notes which are marked with the name of the interviewee are dispersed throughout the material. Among some of the non-Russians interviewed by Gunther are Charles Bohlen, U.S. Ambassador to Russia, E. E. Orchard of the British Foreign Office, Isaiah Berlin, Louis Fischer,

K. P. S. Menon, Indian Ambassador to Russia, Hamilton Fish Armstrong, Marshall MacDuffie, and numerous embassy and consular officials, journalists and commentators stationed in Moscow or other areas of the Soviet Union. Notes of interviews with directors of universities, museums, institutes, etc., which have been identified are included under the names of their institutions rather than under their personal names. The rest of the notes are arranged by subject within each chapter. However, the designation of the name of a person, Khrushchev for instance, refers to notes about him, not to notes of an interview with him.

Included among miscellaneous materials are a long series of unpublished memoranda written by former Senator William Benton, publisher of Encyclopedia Britannica, on his trip to Russia.

Translation of article reviewing Inside Russia Today in Literaturnaya gazeta, September 18, 1958

Series XIII: Taken at the Flood-The Story of Albert D. Lasker

TAKEN AT THE FLOOD, published in 1960, is Gunther's only full-length biography. It is the story of Albert D. Lasker, president of Lord and Thomas and called the "Father of Modern Advertising." The materials concerning this book are contained in nine boxes. The manuscripts are as follows:

1. Original manuscript, typed and revised by the author;

2. First Revision or Second Draft, which is heavily revised. Those pages most heavily revised necessitated retyping and were added to the complete manuscript of this draft. The original manuscripts of these pages are filed separately.

3. Printer's Copy, which is also heavily revised by the author. Those pages most heavily revised were retyped and added to the Printer's Copy. The original manuscripts of these pages are filed separately.

4. Galley Proofs, with author's corrections and additions.

The revisions on the various manuscripts are perhaps more extensive for this book than for any other of Gunther's works.

The Informational Correspondence is quite extensive. There is little printed matter on Albert Lasker and Gunther corresponded with Lasker's family, his friends, and former business associates for information and clarification on certain aspects of his life. Included in this section are long memoranda from the Lasker family suggesting revisions of the First Draft, to most of which Gunther agreed. Among the letters of interest are those from former Senator William Benton, a one-time employee in Lasker's firm, Emerson Foote, vice-president of McCann-Brickson and a former vice-president of Lord and Thomas, Alexander de Seversky, the aeronautical engineer, and Lewis Strauss, Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. There are only two folders of Post-Publication correspondence, many of the letters to Gunther relating additional stories about Lasker or different versions of some story in the published work.

The primary source material for the Lasker book is interview notes. All of the interviewees have been identified in the guide. Among them are William Benton, Fairfax Cone, Samuel Goldwyn, Paul Hopkins, Robert Hutchins, Anna Rosenberg, Alexander de Seversky, Herbert Bayard Swope, and David Sarnoff.

There is also one box which might be classified "The Papers of Albert D. Lasker." This box includes correspondence to and from Lasker. copies of correspondence, a copy of Lasker's reminiscences recorded and transcribed by the Oral History Research Office of Columbia University, copies of Lasker's testimony before various congressional committees, and other materials. Of special interest is the correspondence between Lasker and Senator James Murray and his staff concerning congressional action on cancer research and aid to medical education and the correspondence concerning Lasker's resignation as a University of Chicago trustee in 1942.

Series XIV: Inside Europe Today

INSIDE EUROPE TODAY, published in 1961 was originally conceived as an article for Reader's Digest. Gunther, however, turned out the longest article, some 42,000 words, that the Digest had ever received, and it was never published in its entirety. Gunther then added to the material and extended it into a full-length book, approximately three times longer than the Reader's Digest manuscript. The materials concerning this work are contained in eight boxes. The manuscripts are as follows:

1. Original manuscript: Reader/s Digest, typed and corrected by author;

2. First Revision or Second Draft-Reader's Digest, which is heavily revised;

3. Original Manuscript of Additional chapters, which are, in this instance, records of dictation;

4. First Revision or Second Draft of additional chapters, which is a typescript of the dictated chapters heavily revised by author;

5. Printers copy, which is a carbon copy of the material above which has been merged, However, it is heavily revised, with numerous retyped pages and inserts. Gunther employed the "cut and paste" method,

6. Galley proofs, with author's corrections. Several of the chapters have been heavily revised.

No post-publication correspondence was included in the original deposits. The informational correspondence, which is not extensive, concerns mainly factual material. Included among the material are several memoranda by Look officials on, the Polaris missile, interview notes of Louis Duff with Charles Wilson. Secretary of Defense and Admiral Arleigh Burke. Chief of Naval Operations, and a letter from the editorial research Department of Reader's Digest on Harold Macmillan's relationship with the American Macmillan Company.

The majority of the notes are interview notes. Among those interviewed by Gunther were Willy Brandt, Ludwig Erhardt, Georges Bonnet, Jean Monnat, Giovanni Gronchi, Hugh Gaitskell, Selwyn LIoyu, Harold Macmillan, and numerous other European politicians and statesmen, embassy officials, and American journalists and radio commentators.

Only the manuscripts for this work are part of the collection. Much of the text was in the form of captions for the 400 or more photographs in the volume. The manuscripts are as follows:

1. Original manuscript, in longhand by author, with corrections;

2. First Revision or Second Draft, typed and heavily revised by author.

Gunther wrote three children's books on historical and mythical characters. They are ALEXANDER THE GREAT. published in 1953, JULIUS CAESAR, and THE GOLDEN FLEECE, the latter two published in 1959, Obviously, there are no interview notes for these works. Only the original manuscript of ALEXANDER THE GREAT, which is very heavily revised, is a part of the collection. Two manuscripts of JULIUS CAESAR are included in the collection:

1. Original manuscript, typed by the author and very heavily revised;

2. First Revision or Second Draft, which is also very heavily revised.

The manuscripts of THE GOLDEN FLEECE are of special interest. In the original manuscript, Gunther faithfully recounted the gory legend of Jason and Medea, but subsequently toned down the bloodthirstiness in later drafts. The manuscripts are as follows:

1: Original manuscript, in longhand by the author with corrections:

2. First Revision or Second Draft, typed and heavily revised;

3. Second Revision or Third Draft, which is also heavily revised by author.

Gunther has also written a series of juvenile works on Africa, which are revised versions for younger readers of some of his chapters from INSIDE AFRICA. He has written a revised version of INSIDE RUSSIA TODAY, entitled MEET SOVIET RUSSIA, published in two volumes in 1962. However, only the manuscripts for MEET THE CONGO are included in the collection. The manuscripts are as follows:

Miscellaneous correspondence on juvenile books

Series XVI: Correspondence

Included among the Papers of John Gunther are two boxes of correspondence, mostly between Gunther and his publishers, Harper and Brothers and Hamish Hamilton. Gunther said of this correspondence-"My friends at Harper's perhaps exaggerate, but they say that they have no knowledge of any other file which shows so intimately and over such a sustained period the various factors which are constantly at play in the relationship between a publisher and an author-literary, financial, editorial, etc." The correspondence covers the years from 1936 to 1961. However, the material from 1936 to 1949 is more complete, coming from the files of Harper and Brothers. The post-1949 correspondence was extracted from the original deposit and had been scattered throughout the collection with each specific book, but was brought together in this section. The correspondence deals mostly with publishing matters, but several of the letters contain some of Gunther's views on history, economic theory and other matters. The material has been arranged chronologically.

There is also some miscellaneous correspondence concerned with requests for autographs, asking Gunther to speak at meetings or to contribute articles to journals, or simply friendly letters telling Gunther how much the reader has enjoyed all of his books. Some of the Letters refer to articles Gunther has written in popular magazines or are responses to his television show "High Road."

Series XVII: Chicago Revisited

Chicago Revisited was commissioned and masterminded by Fairfax M. Cone, chairman of the University of Chicago Board of Trustees, and Carl Larsen, director for Public Relations. John Gunther, an alumnus, was asked to write an essay capturing his impressions of the University. The work would be based upon Gunther's visit to the Midway in April 1964 and information compiled by Larsen's office, including faculty profiles.

Gunther's first draft, submitted to Larsen in June 1964, was ready by Cone, who made suggestions as to changes. Many of these were incorporated into a "first revision", authored by Larsen's office. This version was then circulated among administrators and faculty, who were solicited for comments. The "second revision", based on these remarks, was subsequently sent to Gunther for reworking. His final manuscript was published by the University in May 1967. Condensed versions of Chicago Revisited also appeared as articles in Chicago Today, Saturday Review, and Midwest magazines
