This series includes a few memoranda, addresses and speeches, handwritten notes, and a typescript of the complete third and probably last draft of the memoirs that Matthews published privately under the title "Memoirs of a Passing Era" (circa 1972). According to his foreword, Matthews chose for private publication because he did not wish the memoirs to be subject to a commercial publisher's changes, omissions, or additions. In addition, he wanted the book to be a full account of his life as he remembered it, and to contain his "frank opinion of those, both great and small, with whom I was associated in public life. In a few instances my opinions would be less than complimentary and I have no wish to make them public."
