Kennedy; Robert Kennedy; Herbert Lehman; John Lindsay; George McGovern; George Meany; Jawaharlal Nehru; Richard Nixon; Claude Pepper; Victor Reuther; Walter Reuther; Nelson Rockefeller; Adlai Stevenson; Harry Truman; and Harry Van Arsdale of the New York City Central Labor Council.

Correspondence documenting Jacob Potofsky's tenure as president of the ACWU.

These two linear feet of correspondence are extremely fragmentary and represent the only surviving part of Potofsky's presidential correspondence. What remains is largely from the late (post 1960) period of Potofsky's tenure. It consists primarily of routine correspondence. Much of it is from charitable organizations, asking for financial support for their activities.
