This series contains correspondence related to specific topics, such as the Dewey Incident and the Saturday Review of Literature Controversy. Because these topics involved correspondence between multiple individuals (and sometimes many), it was deemed necessary to sort these correspondence based on the topic rather than the individuals writing.


This subseries is arranged in alphabetical order based on what the topic is referred to as.
