Collection Scope and Content Note


This collection contains files and clippings pertaining to Lehrman's career. The first forty-two boxes contain newspaper clippings and articles related to certain aspects (political, economic, militaristic) of specific countries, both Eastern and Western. There is a strong focus on Israel, the Middle East, and "the West." Most of these clippings are from the 1960s, though some are from before or after this period. Additionally, five more boxes contain documents and correspondences from Overseas Press Club, primarily from the 1960s when Lehrman was president of the club. There are a number of notable items, including documents produced by the Office of War Information, papers on Vietnam marked "confidential" from the Council on Foreign Relations, 28 photos of an Israeli family taken in 1956, a speech given by Charles De Gaulle in 1962, and a "War Atlas for Americans" book from 1944.
