Papers of Lewis B. Sebring, a journalist and war correspondent for the New York Herald-Tribune, who reported on combat in the Southwest Pacific Area theater during World War II. Wartime papers, which comprise the most extensive and valuable portion of the collection, include letters to friends, relatives, and the staff of the Tribune. This section also includes photographs, 40 notebooks of on-the-spot observations, and copies of news articles. Other than the war years, the collection contains only scattered references to Sebring's professional career, though there are copies of some earlier writings for the Herald-Tribune and of his later columns in the Schenectady (N.Y.) Union-Star. Among Sebring's prominent correspondents are Martin Agronsky, Raymond Clapper, George Cornish, Joseph Driscoll, Frank Kelley, Joe Alex Morris, Drew Pearson, and Helen Rogers Reid. Also in the collection are three drafts of Sebring's unpublished book on Douglas MacArthur.
