The Diaries subseries contains Kennan's diaries from 1924 to 2004. In the diaries, Kennan recorded who he was meeting, with brief descriptions of the subject of the conversations, and his professional and personal appointments. The earlier diaries, from the period when he was in the diplomatic service, contain his impressions of the countries and the issues they faced. The diaries from his scholarly career include discussions of his research projects and his travels to speak or related to his books, and in later years also include information on his travels with his family, his opinions on public policy matters, and his health.
