General note

Series Note

This Series consists of notes, drafts, research material, final typewritten manuscripts, proof sheets, and reprints of some of HMH's writings and speeches, as well as correspondence about some individual pieces of writing. A substantial part of this MS material deals with the functioning of the U.S. Supreme Court, particularly in the 1930's.

The material in this series was poorly organized and poorly identified; in many cases it was not possible to establish HMH as the author, or dates or places of publication or presentation.
