Henkin was a prolific writer and speaker, and this series includes materials from throughout his career, although the majority dates from the early 1990s through 2002. Articles include related correspondence, drafts, and offprints, and are arranged by year and then alphabetically by title. The bulk of the Books file is publication agreements, royalty statements, reviews, and related correspondence. The file is arranged alphabetically by book title and includes materials from various revisions and reprintings. Conference Proceedings include some of Henkin's published speeches and reprints of his Congressional testimony, and is arranged by date. Unpublished Speeches and Typescripts include notes and typescripts, along with some related correspondence, filed chronologically. Henkin usually spoke extemporaneously from notes, but frequently formalized his notes after the event for potential later publication and those drafts are included here.
