Conditions Governing Access
There is material relating to Harvard Law School Admissions and Faculty appointments that is governed by the University rules for administrative records and these may be closed to researchers (Boxes 54, folders 14-22; 55-19 and 20; 56-8-18; 57-9 and 10; 57-14 through 59-4, and box 61-11).
The material in this series was housed in file folders. Approximately half of the folders were labeled. When used the label format was consistent (i.e. "Writings: America Now" or "Writings: Interpleader"). These folders have been arranged alphabetically by title.
The remaining folders either had handwritten titles or were unmarked. Folders with handwritten titles follow the labeled folders. The material from the unmarked folders was placed in folders under broad catagories. The material includes: correspondence; notes (handwritten), typescript carbon copies of articles, speeches and lectures; as well as offprints, clippings, book reviews (written by Chafee) and articles.
