The index of prominent and frequent correspondents includes the name of the correspondent, the dates of the letter/s (year only), number of items, and container locations. Correspondence with administrative personnel and junior editors at magazines, newspapers, book publishers, and literary agencies is listed under the name of the organization. Senior editors, publishers, and agents who were in frequent contact with Wolfe are listed under their own names. The index is not exhaustive and may not contain referents to every letter by an individual, or list every prominent correspondent found in the collection.

Series IV: Writings dates from 1955 to 2013, with the bulk of the material dating from 1960 to 1998. This series contains manuscripts of Wolfe's newspaper and magazine feature articles, essays, short stories, nonfiction books, and novels, as well as project-specific research files, outlines, editorial correspondence, and promotion files. The revision process of major essays and books is well-documented through multiple revisions with Wolfe's own inserted additions; copy changes by editors; printers' proofs and galleys with significant emendations; and excised, unpublished scenes and chapters. The series contains manuscripts for all of his books, most major magazine and newspaper features, and some early writing for the Springfield Union, the Washington Post, and the New York Herald Tribune. This series is arranged into Subseries IV.A. Short Works and Subseries IV.B. Books.

Subseries IV.A. contains manuscripts of short works, including newspaper and magazine articles, reviews, introductions and forewords, obituaries, short stories, and a partial draft of a novel. Articles and essays are often identified in the container list by Wolfe's working title that may differ from the final title used in publication. Notable short works represented include Wolfe's 1965 two-part profile of William Shawn and The New Yorker (box 91, folder 9), and \"Stalking the Billion Footed Beast,\" his 1989 manifesto on social realism in fiction (boxes 105-106).

Wolfe's newspaper and magazine work prior to 1965 is documented with clippings of articles published in the Springfield Union, manuscripts of stories written as the Latin American correspondent for the Washington Post, and manuscripts of Wolfe's first feature stories published by the Post, the New York Herald Tribune, Esquire, and the Herald's Sunday magazine (predecessor to New York magazine). Many files for manuscripts prior to 1965 do not contain complete drafts.

Subseries IV.B. contains manuscripts for all of Wolfe's published books, except for The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby (see Series IV.A. for introduction and individual works) and Hooking Up (see Series IV.A. for individual works). Book files hold multiple versions of manuscript drafts, with final drafts signifying the copy submitted to Wolfe's publisher, as well as research files, outlines, and synopses. Files labeled \"culls\" or \"out-takes\" contain portions of chapter and scene drafts removed for revision, excision, or inclusion in a later version. Many culls consist of unpublished material. Inserts, attachments, galleys, and printers' proofs contain changes made to the manuscript after editing, and show significant changes to the texts up to publication. Files may contain editorial correspondence, fact checking notes, bibliographies and source lists, and documentation of serializing and excerpting in magazines prior to publication. Files may also include documentation of book tours and the promotional campaign undertaken by the publisher. Files for essay and story collections in this subseries contain drafts of introductions and front matter as well as edited manuscripts showing changes from the initial publication of the work; galleys; photographs; and printer-ready copies of illustrations.

Series VII consists of sketchbooks and loose drawings with Wolfe's original pencil and ink sketches from his childhood to the early 1970s, as well as slides and photostat reproductions. Sketchbooks primarily contain figure drawings, caricatures, and sketches of street scenes with some notes interspersed. Slides in the series contain drawings published in magazines, newspapers, and books, as well as those exhibited during the 1960s. A file of newspaper sketches contains photostat copies of sketches published in the Springfield Union and the Washington Post, some of which are uncredited or unsigned. Newspaper sketches range from caricatures of members of society to courtroom scenes. Some drawings in this series can be found published in Wolfe's books The Pump House Gang and In Our Time, and in his Harper's column \"In Our Time.\"

Thomas Kennerly Wolfe Jr. was born on March 2, 1930 to Thomas Kennerly Wolfe, Sr., an agronomist, and Helen Hughes Wolfe of Richmond, Virginia. He was educated at St. Christopher's School in Richmond, where he wrote for the school paper, The Pine Needle, and developed an early interest in the profession of writing. From 1947 to 1951, Wolfe attended Washington and Lee University, where he helped found the university's literary magazine, the Shenandoah; wrote for the university's monthly magazine, Southern Collegian; and was the sports editor for the student-run weekly newspaper, Ring-tum Phi. He graduated in 1951 and later that year entered the doctoral program in American Studies at Yale University. Wolfe completed his dissertation on communism in the League of American Writers in 1956 and was awarded a Ph.D. in 1957.

In 1962, Wolfe moved to New York City to work as a general assignment reporter for the New York Herald Tribune. While writing deadline journalism for the city desk, he simultaneously pursued feature stories that were published in the Sunday magazine of the Herald Tribune (the predecessor to New York magazine) as well as in Esquire magazine. Under Herald Tribune editor Clay Felker, Wolfe's signature nonfiction style began to take shape. Many of his early features drew heavily on the use of stylistic punctuation, onomatopoeia, and present tense dialogue, including \"The Last American Hero Is Junior Johnson. Yes!;\" \"Tiny Mummies! The True Story of the Ruler of 43rd Street's Land of the Walking Dead!\" about William Shawn and The New Yorker; and \"What If He Is Right,\" a profile of Marshall McLuhan. These features also exemplify his wide-ranging but enduring interest in popular culture, the zeitgeist of New York City and other American cities in the mid-20th century, and the state of modern literature and art. In 1965, Farrar, Straus and Giroux (FSG) published a compilation of Wolfe's feature stories written between 1962 and 1965, entitled The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby. His next two books, The Pump House Gang and The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, were published by FSG on the same day in 1968, and firmly established Wolfe's reputation as a leader in the burgeoning New Journalism movement.

Throughout the 1970s, Wolfe published seven books and several landmark magazine features, including Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers (1970); \"The Birth of the New Journalism\" and the anthology The New Journalism (1973); \"The 'Me' Decade and the Third Great Awakening,\" \"The Intelligent Co-Ed's Guide to America,\" and other essays collected in Mauve Gloves and Madmen, Clutter and Vine (1976); and \"Post-Orbital Remorse,\" which he later developed into the book The Right Stuff (1979). As his stature in the literary world grew, Wolfe began delivering lectures for academic and popular audiences on topics that he explored in his work: journalism, popular culture, and literary criticism. As a contributing editor to Harper's magazine, his writing branched into cultural and art criticism with the essays later republished by FSG in The Painted Word (1975) and From Bauhaus to Our House (1981). He also produced a regular column for Harper's in the late 1970s, \"In Our Time,\" with humorous drawings and captions that satirized a variety of social classes and popular activities in New York City. These drawings were collected and published with an introductory essay by Wolfe in In Our Time (1980). In 1982, FSG published The Purple Decades, a reader of Wolfe's most popular writings from the 1960s and 1970s.

Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Wolfe continued to publish short nonfiction, developing interests in modern technology and the implications of evolution and neuroscience on philosophical concepts of free will. Essays and a novella from the late 1990s were featured in the collection Hooking Up (2000). In 2006, Wolfe was invited to deliver the National Endowment for the Humanities Jefferson Lecture, titled \"The Human Beast,\" which discussed the history of Darwinism and evolution. Wolfe's final book The Kingdom of Speech continued his interest in Darwinism and evolution, critiquing Darwin's theories and Noam Chomsky's linguistic theories of universal grammar.
