Series 3: Correspondence, Travel Material, and other Writing, 1946-2013
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Series 3 includes professional and personal correspondence. Austin's professional correspondence includes letters from his two separate tenures at the State Department (dates), reflecting his focus on Israel and the Middle East, as well as human rights policies and arms sales. Other professional correspondence includes material relating to Austin's job searches, copies of his resume and State Department evaluation forms and qualification statements.
The series also includes material relating to Austin's writings outside of his three published books—such as his occasional paper "Public Policy in Education" (1977), ICWA newsletters, and various other pieces.
Lastly, the series includes travel-related material; printed guide books and maps (from India and elsewhere in South Asia and in Europe), household account books the Austins used while traveling, souvenir material and some ephemera and receipts.
Materials in this series remain in their original physical order as received from the donor.
Approximately four linear feet of maps were separated to Princeton University Library's Maps and Geospatial Information Center.
Four boxes containing household address books, material relating to Austin's 2008 memoir Retrieving Times, and clippings from American newspapers (most relating to the Middle East) and photocopies of books were returned to the donor.
