Abstract:

Collection consists of correspondence, writings, notes and diaries, scrapbooks, financial records, maps, photographs, printed matter, and ephemera that reflect the range of Shaw's interests, both personal and business, and his long career.

Correspondence, 1879-1947, comprises approximately one-third of the collection and concerns mainly editorial and business matters relating to the Review of Reviews and personal and family affairs. Organizational files contain correspondence, minutes, reports, and printed matter of organizations Shaw supported. Writings which include annotated typescripts, manuscripts and backgound materials for his published and unpublished books, articles and speeches trace the development of Shaw's political and professional philosophy. Scrapbooks and clipping files reflect his interest in state and municipal government, foreign affairs and education. Also includes records of his activity in the stock and bond markets; personal financial matters; his dairy farm in Virginia; ephemera such as souvenirs of extensive European and American travels; printed matter relating to all areas of personal and professional interest; maps of European and American cities; and an extensive collection of photographs.

Approximately twenty linear feet of photographs span the years 1864 to 1939 with the bulk ranging from 1913 to 1935 and are made up of the photographic files (mainly copy prints) of the Review of Reviews and the Literary Digest, a periodical purchased by Shaw in 1937. Among the news agency photographs are samples of the work of the most prominent photographers of the time.
