Abstract:

Papers of a foreign correspondent, news analyst, author, and AFL-CIO radio coordinator, consisting chiefly of books, articles, World War II communiques, plays, scripts for films and radio programs, speeches, and tapes.

Draft copies of articles and research materials are filed alphabetically by subject, while printed copies of the articles are arranged chronologically in scrapbooks. For two of Flannery's books, Assignment to Berlin (1941) and Which Way, Germany? (1968), there are manuscript drafts and related files. The second title and The Church and the Workingman (1965) are represented by extensive research files. Other writings include two unpublished plays co-authored with Elmer Harris, which were based on Flannery's observations of events in Germany and Italy, and works by Upton Sinclair and by Harris alone.

Work for the AFL-CIO is represented by films and film scripts, radio scripts, and over 700 tapes pertaining to ABC'S As We See It and John Vandercook and the News and three syndicated programs, Labor Reports to the Nation, Labor Answers Your Questions, and Washington Reports to the Nation. All of the above are notable for the number of prominent individuals interviewed. Also in this section are extensive script files for programs broadcast by the CBS West Coast Network and KMOX, St. Louis.

Two boxes of correspondence concern personal and professional matters. Of special interest are letters written to his wife while he was a CBS correspondent in Berlin and as a war correspondent covering various theaters of war in 1941. Listener mail from the late 1940's is noteworthy for its concern with alleged Communist influence in California. Prominent correspondents include Paul H. Douglas, Arthur J. Goldberg, Hubert H. Humphrey, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, George Meany, Upton Sinclair, and Willard Wirtz.

The remainder of the collection is composed of notebooks kept during many tours and assignments, 1941-1966; clippings; miscellany; and photographs. The photographs are primarily newsphotos showing Flannery with public figures, at conferences, on travels, conducting interviews, and as CBS correspondent in Berlin.
