Scope and content
This series includes both incoming and out-going correspondence primarily of a professional nature. It includes correspondence related to research, publishing and editorial activities, speaking and broadcast appearances as well as collaborative efforts with colleagues. The series, though not extensive, spans Fox's post-graduation professional career and complements Series 2 (Publishing and Manuscripts), Series 4 (Radio and Television Scripts) and Series 5 (Professional Activities). The series is particularly valuable in illustrating Fox's interaction with political or literary notables such as Lester B. Pearson, Keith Spicer, Keith Davey, Pierre Lortie and Farley Mowat. It also highlights his contacts and input at the higher levels of governmental decision-making especially with regard to issues and policies related to national unity and bi-culturalism.

System of arrangement
