Henkin filed his correspondence by topic, organization, or correspondent name. That arrangement has been preserved, and within each folder, letters are arranged chronologically. Some of the larger topical files include Faculty, Human Rights, and Recommendations. Although transcripts of Henkin's 1942 correspondence with Learned Hand are included, the rest of the material dates from 1966-2007, with the majority dating from the 1990s and 2000s.
Some correspondence was left by Henkin in folders labeled "to be filed" or "miscellaneous" and these letters have not been integrated into the alphabetical series. They have been arranged roughly chronologically. The bulk of this correspondence dates from 1996-2001.
