American Bar Association

Correspondence, memoranda, manuscripts, typescripts, manuscript notes, proofs, photocopies of original letters, manuscripts, documents, and other supporting materials used in the research, writing and publication of the American Bar Association's "War Powers Study." The correspondence and memoranda include applications for research positions with the project and communications among the project staff. By far the majority of the papers consist of heavily corrected manuscripts and typescript drafts of each chapter for the multi-volume series entitled: WAR, FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND CONSTITUTIONAL POWERS (Cambridge, Mass., Ballinger, 1976-). Each chapter's drafts are followed by extensive working papers which include research papers written by the staff, photocopies and transcripts of original letters, manuscripts and documents, inventories and calendars of historical documents, and excerpts from printed sources.
