Series I: Biographical Materials, 1940-2007

This series is arranged chronologically unless otherwise noted. Clippings include issues of the Columbia Law School Observer as well as newspaper articles and editorials. CVs and directory bios also include biographical notes for contributor lists and programs. The day planners date from 1966 through 2004 but are not comprehensive. Honors and Awards include certificates, correspondence, diplomas, programs, and speeches. Interviews include an edited transcript of a 1995 conversation with Antonio Cassese and a partial transcript of a 1996 interview with Don Anton. The small file of personal materials includes some business correspondence, a formal appraisal for a collection of Felix Frankfurter's letters that Henkin donated to Harvard Law School, Henkin's "Humor" file (including a 1940 parody issue of Harvard Law Review, which he edited), and correspondence relating to awards and festschrifts. The file is arranged alphabetically by topic. Photographs include two sets of professional portraits and three undated snapshots.
