Manuscript drafts and notes by J. Max Bond make up the bulk of this series. Subject matter, largely concerning civil rights, the Black Panthers, and the Nixon administration, dates most of the manuscripts to the late 1960s-1970s. Where possible, drafts of the same manuscript have been grouped together and organized alphabetically, using the original titles; however, lack of dates makes it impossible to ascertain the chronological order of the drafts. A small amount of material in this series is by Ruth Bond and included here is her Master's thesis. The material is arranged alphabetically.
Note: Most reports written by J. Max Bond, Sr. and Ruth Clement Bond can be found in Subseries II.1: Country and Regional, 1939-1990.
