This series contains personal papers of Jean Reiff Hailey, Robert G. Kaiser, George Lardner, Walter Pincus, Merlo J. Pusey, and Chalmers M. Roberts. The bulk of the series includes Lardner and Pincus’s files on the Kennedy assassination and the Watergate Affair for articles written in the 1990s. These include drafts, planning documents, interviews, notes, and many research files that draw largely from documents photocopied at the National Archives and Records Administration, the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library, and the Gerald R. Ford Library. The research files are arranged according to subject, with annotations by Pincus, Lardner, and other individuals working on the projects. There is considerable duplication among the Kennedy assassination files, which focus mostly on the Warren Commission, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby, and Lyndon B. Johnson. Chalmers M. Roberts’s papers comprise research and publicity associated with his books Washington Post: The First 100 Years (1977) and In the Shadow of Power: The Story of the Washington Post (1989) and contain correspondence, notes, interviews, staff information, and photographs. Robert G. Kaiser’s papers mostly include notes and transcripts of interviews for his book with Jon Lowell, Great American Dreams (1978). The series also includes the memoirs of Merlo J. Pusey from 1985 and a scrapbook belonging to Jean Reiff Hailey that documents her career at the Washington Post from 1943 to 1944
Material types include: notes, correspondence, articles, transcripts, memoranda, scrapbooks, interviews, photographs, clippings, notes, and book reviews.
Arranged alphabetically by staff member last name and thereunder by topic or material type.
