Clippings, 13 linear feet
MacNeil appears to have been an inveterate keeper of news clippings. Occasionally these clippings were organized by subject but rarely so and never consistently. Because of their deteriorating condition and their adverse impact on surrounding materials, the clippings were removed and separated into an unsorted series.
For researchers who are interested in MacNeil’s reading habits, it would be safe to assume that he read the following publications closely and clipped from them extensively on all subjects political and congressional: New York Times, Washington Post, Roll Call, Congressional Record, Congressional Quarterly Weekly Report, with occasional clippings from other sources.
This series will not be processed further.
