BOX 222-236 Subject File, 1952-2006
The Subject File holds a wide range of files pertaining to Buchwald’s personal interests, organizations and charities he supported, and organizations in which he was involved, among other topics. Buchwald’s many charitable contributions are documented in this series and include scholarships he funded, undergraduate students he sponsored, monetary donations to nonprofit organizations, prizes he donated for charitable auctions, which was usually the right to name a character in one of his upcoming columns, and his service as the auctioneer for the annual Possible Dreams auction in Martha’s Vineyard. Many humor conferences and organizations are represented in this series and include material regarding an exchange of American and Soviet humorists in 1988, for which Buchwald traveled to the Soviet Union. Letters from readers are included in the Subject File and record reactions to some of Buchwald’s columns. Correspondence and printed matter chronicle Buchwald’s ongoing relationships with the New York Herald Tribune, United States Marine Corps, and University of Southern California. Researchers should consult the Personal File for material more directly related to Buchwald’s early career with the New York Herald Tribune while in Paris, France, his service as a Marine, and his tenure as a student at the University of Southern California.

Material types include brochures, correspondence, newspaper clippings, programs, and printed matter.
