BOX 192-222 Personal File, 1885-2007
The Personal File documents Buchwald’s youth, early career in Paris, France, family, health, and death. The bulk of the material chronicles Buchwald’s childhood in the Hebrew Orphan Asylum’s foster care system, service in the United States Marine Corps, and years at the University of Southern California. Documents and printed ephemera reflecting Buchwald’s fourteen years in Paris (1948-1962) are comprised in this series and document his work as a critic and humorist for the New York Herald Tribune, as well as his household and family life at that time. The Personal File also contains Buchwald’s family papers, which include letters with his sisters, in-laws, and other family members and documents collected and created by Buchwald’s wife, Ann. Ann Buchwald’s papers contain correspondence with Art and other members of her family, as well as transcripts and drafts of her memoir, Seems Like Yesterday. Early examples of Buchwald’s writings are found throughout the Personal File beginning with a poem written when he was twelve years old, circa 1937. Several newsletters for which Buchwald wrote while in the United States Marine Corps, including The Coral Courier and The U-Man Comedy, are also in this series. His academic essays, produced for courses in creative and script writing at the University of Southern California, are well represented, as are pieces written for school publications, The Daily Trojan and WAMPUS. This series also includes early columns Buchwald wrote while in Paris. These consist of articles written in 1948 when he was a stringer for Variety and article drafts for the New York Herald Tribune.

Material types include address and appointment books, correspondence, digital files, family papers, honorary degrees and awards, oral histories, medical files, military documents, identification cards, marriage documents, photographs, and wills.
Arranged alphabetically by topic or material type. File structure of the digital content included in this series was maintained as received.
