SOME ONLINE CONTENT
The World War II series documents Kirkpatrick's service in the Office of Strategic Services and U.S. Army during World War II. Approximately half of the series consists of reports and studies on the activities of the German army and General Omar Bradley's 12th Army Group. Kirkpatrick wrote at least one of the studies ("Destruction of the German Armies in Western Europe, June 6, 1944 - May 9, 1945"). Other highlights in the series include a group of progress reports and daily summaries which appear to have been written by Kirkpatrick during his time in the OSS, the text of a Kirkpatrick speech which appears to have been broadcast to the United States on V-E Day, and photocopies of Kirkpatrick's personnel records.

The Subject Files subseries documents Kirkpatrick's active years at the CIA between 1947 and 1965 and is the largest of the three subseries. It includes approximately 0.5 linear feet of material related to the Bay of Pigs Invasion and Kirkpatrick's role in the compilation of the Inspector General's report on the incident. The report was released in 1998, after being classified for thirty-six years, following a Freedom of Information Act request by the National Security Archive at George Washington University. Copies of the two volumes of records released by the CIA, titled "Inspector General's Survey of the Cuban Operation and Associated Documents," are included in the subseries. Other material related to the Bay of Pigs includes two 1958 State Department reports on Cuba, a folder of correspondence between Kirkpatrick and Cuban lawyer Mario Lazo, and transcripts of a lecture and an interview, both given by Kirkpatrick after he left the CIA.

The Central Intelligence Agency series documents Kirkpatrick's years at the CIA and is divided into three subseries: Subject Files, Post-Retirement CIA Involvement, and CIA Publications. All of the material in the series was reviewed by the CIA prior to its arrival at the library. Many of the documents in the series are photocopies, some of which have been redacted.
Folder
The Writings series consists of correspondence, notes, and other material related to Kirkpatrick's three books, numerous book reviews, and other published and unpublished writing. Most of the material related to Kirkpatrick's books consists of correspondence, book reviews, and administrative material, rather than drafts of the actual works. Text and drafts of shorter articles and Encyclopedia Britannica entries are included, however. The majority of the material in the series was written during Kirkpatrick's time as a political science professor at Brown University, and concerns foreign policy and intelligence subjects.
