Scope and content
Subseries contains correspondence in the following order: early professional correspondence predominantly from the late 1940s and 1950s; correspondence to Chelvanayakam; correspondence from Chelvanayakam; and miscellaneous correspondence to/from individuals other than Chelvanayakam.
Early professional correspondence (1940s-1950s) has been arranged chronologically since this covers a time when many party members were under house arrest resulting in increased written correspondence, and since documentation from this time period is sparse. All other correspondence is alphabetical.
Professional correspondence was found in miscellaneous boxes and has been arranged alphabetically by correspondent by the archivist. This correspondence was found separate from the professional files although subject-wise they can overlap.
