U.S. Mss 92AF
Part 1 (U.S. Mss 92AF): Original Collection, 1943-1968
Physical Description: 9.6 c.f. (24 archives boxes) 
Scope and Content Note

Part 1 is arranged in six categories: correspondence, news stories, subject files, Romney book manuscript, articles by or about Harris, and notebooks.

The correspondence, 1943-1961, includes many letters from David Riesman, the noted Harvard sociologist, dealing with general social and political topics. A good deal of correspondence in 1963, including exchanges with Riesman, concerns the right-wing movement in the United States. Correspondents include:

Ashmore, Harry S.1967 February 16, August 22
Buckley, William F., Jr.1957 March 25
Cerf, Bennett1957 December 4
Cooper, Sen. John Sherman1963 July 8
Moreell, Adm. Ben1963 June 21, July 8
Riesman, David1963 January 16 and 22, February 19, March 22, April 17, November 6
1964 May 26, July 7, August 28, September 14, October 22, November 4
1965 August 12
1966 February 14, October 22, November 5
1967 January 31, May 3, September 11, October 5, December 13
Rousselot, John1963 June 13

The news stories, 1949-1962, written for Time Inc. publications, are arranged chronologically and include both annotated drafts and final manuscripts.

The subject files are arranged alphabetically, and chronologically within each file wherever possible. Most of the material in the subject files is from Harris' college days, although some of a more recent date includes material on the right-wing.

The collection also includes the manuscript of Harris' book on George Romney and magazine and newspaper articles written by or about Harris. The manuscript of Harris' book Romney's Way: A Man and an Idea, originally entitled The Romney Revolt, includes progressive drafts and is annotated. The articles are chiefly post-1960, but a few are from 1947 and the 1950s.

The notebooks are undated and contain miscellaneous jottings.
