BOX 1-48 General Correspondence, 1947-2007
The General Correspondence series is composed primarily of incoming letters Buchwald received from friends, colleagues, and relatives. The series is organized into three groupings: VIP, Close friends, and Chronological. The “VIP” and “Close friends” designations were maintained as received and include letters from a wide variety of notable political and public figures. The VIP grouping is further arranged into an alphabetical file and a chronological file. Correspondents represented in the VIP alphabetical file include Alain Bernheim, Benjamin C. Bradlee, Katharine Graham, Ann Landers, Gordon Manning, Florence Leola Starling, David L. Wolper, members of the Kennedy family, several cartoonists, and members of Congress, among others. The VIP chronological file also contains letters from many notable figures. Appendix A contains a partial list of significant correspondents found in the VIP chronological file. Al Hix and Lucy D. and Sheldon Hackney, among others, appear in the Close friends file. Though efforts were made to reduce overlap of correspondents across groupings, names may appear in more than one of the groupings in this series.

Letters across the General Correspondence series are largely personal in nature and chronicle Buchwald’s relationships with entertainers, political figures, print and broadcast journalists, musicians, literary figures, and friends. This series broadly reflects Buchwald's many circles of friends, especially those associated with Paris, Washington, D.C., and Georgetown specifically, summers in Martha's Vineyard, and Hollywood, as well as others working in the news industry. Topics covered vary based on the correspondent, but many letters detail life in Paris, time in the United States Marine Corps, shared personal history or acquaintances, projects and events in which Buchwald participated, and responses to his columns and books. The humor shared between Buchwald and his friends is well documented in this series.
Arranged into three groupings: VIP, Close friends, and Chronological and arranged alphabetically by name or chronologically therein.
