Index to Correspondence

The following index includes most, but not all, of the correspondents in this collection, who wrote letters of substance. In some cases where a correspondent wrote only one or two letters of substance the entries were eliminated. The following names, who because of their positions as creators of the records in this collection and who are therefore responsible for a preponderant amount of the correspondence, were omitted from this index: Thomas Burke, Robert Oliver, Victor Reuther and Walter Reuther. Only the names of persons sending the letters are indexed. Some of the correspondence consists of copies of letters sent to third parties. Such letters are indexed, but at all times the names listed refer to the persons who wrote the letters. Because this collection spans such a short time period (1952-1956), the dates of most of the letters are omitted. In those rare cases where the date of a letter does not fall within this time period, the date is included. In most cases the titles of the positions which the correspondents held during the time period of the collection are listed. The fact that some correspondents changed their positions during this time period is also noted. The index is arranged alphabetically by surnames of the correspondents. The first number signifies the box number; the number after the colon indicates in which folder the letters are located. In cases where there are preponderant amounts of correspondence in several folders from the persons indexed, the box number is listed after the title of his position. For example, James Carey was President of the International Union of Electrical Workers, and many of his letters are in Box 35 in folders labeled International Union of Electrical Workers. The index points this fact out by listing (Box35) at the end of his position title. In a few cases there are preponderant amounts of correspondence in folders listed in the guide under the surname of an individual. In such cases the box number appears in the index directly after the surname. For example, William Kemsley has a preponderant amount of correspondence in Box 74 in folders listed under his surname; the index notes this fact by listing (Box 74) directly after his surname.
