Description

Series 2, Subseries 1, Correspondence, 1928-1963, constitutes the office files of the organization and is arranged alphabetically by the last name of correspondent, organization or subject. In addition to correspondence, it includes articles, memoranda, reports and speeches. Particularly enlightening are the handwritten comments on letters, memoranda, and the like by the officers. They were not afraid to express their opinion and often did so with a dry wit. It was customary for the officers to receive a variety of opinions, internal as well as external, on all major issues relating to the Fund's activities. While the staff was dedicated to the Fund's mission, it is apparent they sought justification for their activities from outside experts and trusted friends. This is particularly true in the case of Frank Kelly, vice-president of public information, who relied heavily upon his mentor, public relations guru Stephen Fitzgerald.

Included in this subseries are Hutchins's Ford Foundation files relating to the development of the Fund. These folders contain such items as internal memoranda, lists of potential board candidates, and the memorandum of grant approval signed by Hutchins, which offer insight into the Ford Foundation's vision of the Fund.
