BOX 8-328 Executive Correspondence, 1920-1963
Letters to and from Howard, spanning personal, professional, and business matters, with appended and enclosed material including clippings, writings, photographs, reports, legal documents, financial matter, and typescript and near-print newspaper columns and editorials related to the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain and its subsidiary service.
Arranged chronologically by year and therein by three geographical groupings: city file, foreign file, and state file. Contents within folders are arranged in reverse chronological order.
City files consist mainly of correspondence to and from sites which had Scripps-Howard papers. These varied over the years, and sometimes include files for major cities such as Chicago, Ill., and Los Angeles, Calif., that did not have newspapers controlled by Howard but were nonetheless the source of considerable social and professional correspondence.
City files are usually divided between the internal communications of the chain's paper in that city (which are thus listed under the name of the paper) and correspondence from individuals or institutions who wrote without a Scripps-Howard affiliation.
Some city files contain folders for individual correspondents. An example is Peter B. Kyne, a friend of Howard's who lived in San Francisco, Calif., and whose letters appear under that designation. More often, such as in the case of Albert D. Lasker of Chicago, Ill., an individual's correspondence is simply enclosed in the general files for the city from where the letter was sent. New York, N.Y., files, by far the most extensive, include Scripps-Howard and World-Telegram & Sun material. Letters from correspondents not associated or employed with either of these two institutions are usually located alphabetically in the general correspondence of the New York files.
Because the business offices of Scripps-Howard were centered in Cincinnati, Ohio, most financial records of the firm are located in the files for this city. Similarly, the organization's legal counsel was in Cleveland, Ohio; hence the legal papers and correspondence with individual attorneys is in this file. Howard kept his United Press correspondence in his New York files, where they are organized according to foreign and domestic origin.
State files in this series are generally less voluminous than city files and are composed of letters to and from individuals who lived in cities lacking Scripps-Howard papers.
Foreign files contain the letters of foreign correspondents as well as letters from Americans resident in other countries or regions. Examples are Douglas MacArthur and Mark W. Clark, whose letters to Howard during the 1940s are in the Japanese and European files.
