Abstract:

Typed and handwritten manuscripts, interview notes, galley proofs, financial records, correspondence, audio and video tapes, clippings, research files, court documents, government publications, photographs, and memorabilia document the Watergate investigation and writings of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

The bulk of the collection consists of drafts of Washington Post news stories, All The President's Men, and The Final Days. Woodward and Bernstein typed all of these drafts on the six-ply carbonless paper used by The Washington Post at that time for news copy drafts. One or all six pages may contain handwritten comments and changes by Bernstein, Woodward, their editors, and, on manuscripts for The Final Days, from research assistants Scott Armstrong and Al Kamen.

In addition to the wealth of manuscript material, of great importance are hundreds of files containing interviews conducted by telephone or in person by Bernstein and Woodward for their news stories and books. Found in both the Woodward and Bernstein series, the files include interviews with major Watergate figures, presidential aides and staff, government officials and employees, congressmen, and Nixon colleagues. Examples of some of the higher profile interviewees are Howard Baker, J. Fred Buzhardt, John Ehrlichman, James St. Clair, Barry Goldwater, Howard Hunt, Elliot Richardson, and Leon Jaworski.

Interviews are found in two types of files: source files and subject files. Although the contents of the source files and the subject files are often similar, maintaining the distinction between them reflects the authors' working methods. Source files most often contain notes from interviews conducted while writing stories for the Post. Subject files tend to be larger and more often contain information about a topic or individual rather than material from that individual. Many of the files remain closed in accordance with Woodward and Bernstein's promises to protect their sources' identities. Several Watergate related interviews conducted by Woodward in the late 1990s for his book Shadow are also present.

Other materials include Watergate related publications and works by other authors, clippings of Woodward and Bernstein stories, clippings of Watergate stories from other papers and reporters, and extensive research files containing notes and photocopies of government documents. Correspondence and memos are found in small amounts throughout the papers, but the bulk is concentrated in the Bernstein series and consists of fan letters sent to Woodward and Bernstein at The Washington Post from 1973 to 1976. All the President's Men materials contain contracts, outlines, editing notes, and page proofs for the book. Also present are financial records, such as royalty statements and expense accounts, dating from 1973 to 1977, including personal financial information for both reporters. All the President's Men movie materials consist of notes on discussions with Robert Redford and several screenplay drafts annotated by Woodward and Bernstein. Publicity materials for the movie include a 35mm film trailer and French language videotape of the film.

All videotape, audiotape, and film has been transferred to the Ransom Center's audio visual collection and digital copies are available for research use. Foreign and special editions of All the President's Men and The Final Days have likewise been transferred to the Ransom Center's library and are cataloged separately. See the finding aid for lists of the transferred books and audio visual materials.
