This series contains material directly related to the Citizens' Mission. Included are Kay Boyle's diaries, in original and corrected draft form; correspondence about and drafts of subsequent publications of the Mission; articles published by delegation members; and correspondence among Mission members.
This subseries contains journal notebooks, typed drafts, and critiques of drafts for Kay Boyle's Mission diaries. A photograph is also included. The diary of Kay Boyle's mission experiences was to be published soon after 1966 but was never printed in full. The subseries is arranged in stages beginning with on-site journals. These are followed by drafts for publication and commentary on those drafts.
A further note is required to explain the comprehensive diary (found in F6 below) which is a compilation of the smaller diaries. Upon acquisition it was filled with a large quantity of related letters and notes placed loosely between its pages. To clarify the order of the diary, all pages, including the loose inserts, were numbered consecutively from beginning to end. The loose pages were then removed and placed in the adjoining folders (F6a, F6b, and F6c).
