Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Series 3, Personal Files 1942-1977, consists of items that document Lockwood's own involvement in the Amerasia case and his service in World War II. The correspondence consists primarily of personal letters of congratulation on Lockwood's September 11, 1955 letter to the New York Times, in which he objected to the Army's decision to forbid John K. Fairbank of Harvard from visiting Japan. In the letter he also stated his objections to the attacks on Philip Jessup and Owen Lattimore. Included in his World War II papers is his 1971 article entitled "The GI in Wartime China." Also of interest are Lockwood's curriculum vitae, drafts of his 1975 and 1976 entries in Who's Who in America and his FBI file.
