The Biographical and Personal series consists of approximately 0.5 linear feet of material and includes biographical information, as well as material related to Kirkpatrick's time at Princeton University and other non-professional activities. Of special note is a 185-page biography compiled by Kirkpatrick's wife Rita, which makes use of documents found elsewhere in the collection. The majority of correspondence found in the series is a group of photocopies of letters compiled by Kirkpatrick's wife Rita into a "significant signatures file." The file includes correspondence from U.S. presidents and vice presidents, senators and representatives, and military officers including Omar Bradley. The vast majority of the correspondence in the Significant Signatures File is brief and insubstantial; many of the letters are holiday greetings, invitations, or congratulations on Kirkpatrick's retirement from the CIA or Brown University. There is some correspondence related to Kirkpatrick's intelligence career, including a brief letter in which newly appointed Director of Central Intelligence George H.W. Bush comments on the struggles ahead of him. The series also includes a small folder of photographs, primarily of Kirkpatrick during his military service and years with the CIA.
