Included in the collection are some files relating to Malcolm X. One file contains copies of letters Malcolm X wrote from Cairo and Mecca in 1964 to Art Peters and to M.S. Handler, a reporter who wrote the introduction to the autobiography; two postcards to Haley from Mrs. Betty Shabazz; the copy of a note from Malcolm X advising Haley that he wanted the contract with his publisher amended so that royalties would go to the Muslim Mosque and in the case of his death to his wife. Another file deals with an article Haley wrote in 1971, "The Legacy of Malcolm X," and includes several drafts of the manuscript and a letter from Haley to the editor of Harper's magazine, discussing his writing style.
