Well known for his columns on civil liberties and McCarthyism, Lasch also wrote in opposition to the Vietnam War and in 1966 was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his editorials on that subject.
Correspondence, 1942-1971, is both general and from readers. Among the prominent letter writers are Herbert L. Block, Marquis W. Childs, Henry Steele Commager, J. William Fulbright, Hubert H. Humphrey, Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., Adlai E. Stevenson, and W. Stuart Symington. Office memoranda include exchanges with Joseph Pulitzer, Sr., Marshall Field III, and members of their respective staffs.
Documenting his writings are editorial reprints; free-lance articles, particularly for "The Progressive," "The Reporter," and "The Nation"; and several unpublished manuscripts. Indicative of his research methodology are subject files and notes on civil rights, national defense, McCarthyism, pacifism during the Vietnam War, federal aid to education, the presidential campaigns of 1952 and 1956, the National Conference of Editorial Writers, and his Pulitzer Prize award.
Photographs include images of a meeting between Lasch and President Lyndon B. Johnson, at the dinner for his Pulitzer Prize, and as part of a panel interviewing Hubert Humphrey.
