BOX DF Digital File, 1987-2006
The Digital File series contains the contents of a personal computer and word-processing disks created and used by Buchwald between 1987 and 2006. The series documents his professional activities during this period and focuses primarily on speech and column drafts, though to a lesser extent, correspondence and photographs are also represented. The file structure of the digital content has been maintained as received and Buchwald’s word-processing files were saved in no particular chronological or topical order, resulting in a mix of date ranges, subjects, and document types across digital ID numbers. In general, speeches and columns found on disks range in date from 1987 to 1996, while those found on Buchwald’s personal computer range in date from 2002 to 2006. An inventory of some of the disks was created, presumably by one of Buchwald's assistants, and a PDF copy is appended to the finding aid as Appendix B. Correspondence was saved among column and speech drafts and dates between 1987 and 1996. In an effort to ensure correspondence was not overlooked among the digital files, digital ID numbers containing letters are listed under “Correspondence” and under “Columns and speeches.” Correspondence found in the Digital File series includes several letters Buchwald wrote to his wife, Ann, during their separation and her cancer treatments. Letters from Buchwald to his children and friends are also found in this series. In other instances where digital materials were found with the collection’s paper content, the digital materials are listed and described alongside the paper records.

Material types include book manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, and speech and column drafts.
Arranged alphabetically by material type and listed by digital ID number thereunder, with the file structure of the digital content maintained as received.
