Abstract:

Papers of Richard Halworth Rovere, a writer and editor known for his work on politics and current affairs for "The New Yorker" (1944-1978) and his book "Senator Joe McCarthy." Best for the period from the late 1930s to the mid-1960s, the papers offer excellent material on Rovere's involvement with the Communist Party and on his writings, particularly those on McCarthyism and the Vietnam War. Especially well documented are seven books Rovere wrote and contributions to such periodicals as "The New Masses," "The New Yorker," "Harper's," "Encounter," and "The (London) Spectator." Elsewhere in the collection are files on the Peace Corps in Kenya, the Ku Klux Klan, the American Committee for Cultural Freedom, and Thomas Dewey's 1944 Presidential campaign. Among many prominent correspondents are Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Granville Hicks, Irving Kristol, and Frederick Lewis Allen.

The processed portion of this collection is summarized above, dates 1931-1968, and is described in the register. Additional accessions date 1926-1981 and are described below.
