People Files subseries, ca. 1970-1989 (bulk 1970-1979)

Scope and content:

The People Files Subseries, ca. 1970-1989 (chiefly 1970s), contains correspondence, clippings, notes, and other miscellaneous materials related to individuals and institutions with whom and which Chesler was in contact during this period. Much of the material in the series documents Chesler's personal and professional concerns following the publication of Women, Money and Power and prior to publication of About Men and With Child, with a particular emphasis on her relationships with other feminist writers and activists. The folders are arranged by last name, except for the small number where Chesler's original folder title referred to an institution. These files are interfiled within the established alphabetical order, maintaining Chesler's original order.
