Subseries 5D: United States Ambassador to the United Nations, 1958-1965
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Adlai E. Stevenson Papers contain correspondence, speeches, writings, campaign materials, United Nations materials, subject files, personal files, scrapbooks, travel materials, photographs, and audiovisual materials. The correspondence is a particularly rich resource for documenting all aspects of Stevenson's life and career. Stevenson's two presidential campaigns and service to the United Nations in both the 1940s and early 1960s are also well-documented in the appropriate series. The subject files illuminate Stevenson's career and civic activities prior to his election of governor of Illinois and also show his commitment to Chicago's benevolent institutions. The papers do not include materials from his governorship of Illinois which may be found at the Illinois State Historical Society in Springfield, Illinois.
The materials in this subseries are arranged alphabetically by folder title. The correspondence is arranged alphabetically by last name of the correspondent. Files of outgoing correspondence are arranged chronologically, with Stevenson's personal correspondence arranged first. Correspondence written in response to specific events, such as Stevenson's exchange with Zorin during the Cuban Missile Crisis, is included with the files pertaining to those events.
- Archival Appraisal Information:

Ives, Timothy R. Ives, Philip M. Klutznick, Nan McEvoy, Josephine P. McGowan, Newton N. Minow, Adlai E. Stevenson III, John Fell Stevenson, Maurice Tempelsman, and Willard Wirtz.
