Alan Barth papers, 1937-1981 5 Linear Feet
Correspondence, articles, speeches, editorials, subject files, newspaper clippings, and a small amount of personal papers. Half the papers consist of editorials written for the Beaumont Journal(1937-1938), theWashington Post(1949-1977), and theGuild Reporter(1950-1951). Both the correspondence and writings reflect Barth's involvement during the McCarthy period. The issues of civil liberties and freedom of the press run through much of his correspondence with Malcolm Cowley, John Fisher, Felix Frankfurter, Henry Morgenthau, Jr., and Adlai Stevenson.
