Scope and Content Note

This collection is arranged alphabetically by type of material into nine series, then chronologically within each series, where applicable. The series are Books; Correspondence; Literary Productions; Maps; Photographs; Printed Material; Prints and Drawings; Realia; Scrapbook. Primarily, the collection contains materials documenting Marjorie Hunter's time as a student at Elon College in the late 1930's, early 1940's as well as her career as a journalist/reporter for the Washington Bureau of the New York Times. The information is documented through correspondences, interview transcripts, newspaper articles, and pages from Hunter's personal scrapbooks. Not only does this collection shed light into the world of one of the greatest female journalists/reporters, but also provides unique primary sources relating to media coverage and United States history.

The smallest series' in this collection include Books, Literary Productions, Maps, Prints and Drawings, and Realia. Of particular historical significance, the State of the Union Address given by Lyndon B. Johnson on January 14, 1969 can be found in the Literary Production series (3:1). In addition, included in the Literary Production series is Marjorie Hunter's original thesis that she wrote titled History of Journalism in Alamance County, NC (3:2). She submitted the thesis in 1942 in order to receive partial fulfillment of the requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree from Elon College (3:2). Moreover, the Realia series is the only series in the collection that contains 3-dimensional objects. Specifically, this series includes the original Elon College Alumnus Award that was given to Marjorie Hunter on May 20, 1972 (8:2).

One of the larger series in the collection encompasses multiple types and formats of Correspondence. This series is arranged alphabetically by type of Correspondence and then chronologically, where applicable. Specifically, this series contains original transcripts from various interviews, Congressional, and presidential press conferences, primarily while Hunter was a reporter for the New York Times [(1961-1986) (2:4-2:7)]. Furthermore, this series contains letters discussing a mixture of different issues relating to various time periods throughout Marjorie Hunter's career as a journalist (2:9-2:18).

One of the largest series in the collection contains mainly black and white Photographs. Most of the Photographs are of Marjorie Hunter either pictured in a group setting or individually (5:7-5:9). Additionally, this series contains many autographed photographs of past U.S. Presidents and political figures, both from the state and national level. However, the majority of the Photographs are of unidentified people, places, and dates.

Printed Material makes up the largest series in this collection. This series is divided up alphabetically by different types of material and then chronologically, where applicable. Specifically, the series includes materials such as certificates, diplomas, pamphlets, newspaper clippings, press passes, and many other types of Printed Material.

Within each Scrapbook, one will find multiple types of materials including photographs (now filed with the Photograph series), newspaper clippings, cartoons, drawings, and much more. Each Scrapbook page intimately expresses what sort of items, news related stories, information, and people that Marjorie Hunter was most interested in keeping and knowing.

Detailed Description of the Collection

1. Books. 1951.
1 Folder. 1 Item.
This is one of the smallest series in the collection, containing only one book. The title is The Political Yearbook 1951.
2. Correspondence. Inclusive: 1960-2000. Bulk: 1960-1970.
18 Folders. ca. 65 Items.
One of the larger and more historically significant series, correspondence, includes a variety of formats and topics. The series is broken down into types of correspondence alphabetically and then chronologically, where applicable. The different types of Correspondence include greeting cards, interview transcripts, and letters (both personal and business). The majority of the greeting cards are addressed to Marjorie Hunter and are from a variety of well-known and unknown individuals and families. Some of the greeting cards contain photographs of the individual(s) and/or families sending the cards, but primarily they are Christmas and season's greetings cards (2:1-2:3).
The most historically significant collection within the Correspondence series contains interview transcripts from various presidential and Congressional press conferences. All of the transcripts are primary sources, often with handwritten notes (probably by Marjorie Hunter) on many of the pages. Most of the transcripts are from the time period in which Marjorie Hunter worked for the New York Times (1961-1986), but there are a few that represent her days with the Winston-Salem Journal [(1950-1961) (2:4)]. Of particular interest, there are two different transcripts that shed light onto two different time periods in U.S. history. One transcript is during a Ford press conference in Danbury, Connecticut where Marjorie Hunter is asking questions relating to the tapes that led to the Watergate Scandal (2:4). The other transcript contains a rough outline of questions that Marjorie Hunter was going to possibly ask Gerald Ford after he became president, following Richard Nixon's resignation (2:4). Furthermore, many of the remaining transcripts contain information regarding the resignation of Richard Nixon, the issues the country was facing during the Cold War, matters pertaining to political campaigns, and the Watergate Scandal (2:5-2:7).
Many of the letters in this series cover a wide range of topics, information, and time periods. Of particular interest is a rough draft of the schedule outline of Mrs. Jackie Kennedy's trip to India and Pakistan during 1962 ( 2:12). Marjorie Hunter accompanied Mrs. Kennedy on this trip, and the schedule contains Hunter's notes regarding the trip (2:12, 2:18). Through the letters of Correspondence, one will learn about the many people Marjorie Hunter interviewed, associated with, and maintained personal friendships with (2:9-2:18).

3. Literary Productions. 1942 and 1969.
2 Folders. 2 Items.
One of the smaller, but more diverse series in this collection, Literary Productions, contains both a speech and a thesis. The speech is a copy of the State of the Union Address given by President Lyndon B. Johnson on January 14, 1969 (3:1). Marjorie Hunter hand wrote her notes during the speech, shedding light into her thoughts during the speech, as well as other events that took place (such as applauses) (3:1). Examples of topics and issues discussed in the State of the Union Address include: Improving the Quality of Life; Insuring a Life of Dignity; Protecting Life; Improving Government; The Means to Meet Our Commitments; The Quest for Peace; Vietnam and the Middle East; and A Message to Congress (3:1).
The second item in this series is a thesis that Marjorie Hunter wrote titled History of Journalism in Alamance County, NC (3:2). She submitted the thesis in 1942 in order to receive partial fulfillment of the requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree from Elon College (3:2). In the thesis, she traces the history of journalism in Alamance County, NC using sources from Duke University, UNC Chapel Hill, Elon College, and interviews with various individuals (3:2). The very last page of the thesis includes a timeline tracing the existence of different newspapers in Alamance County from 1850-1940 (3:2).

Another one of the smaller series in this collection, Maps, contains only three Maps of three different areas. None of the Maps in this series relate directly to other materials in the collection, but are historically significant as geographical Maps. The two Maps showing areas in North Carolina include a Map of Dare County and UNC Chapel Hill's campus (4:1, 4:3). Neither one of these Maps are dated (4:1, 4:3). The one Map showing an area outside of North Carolina is a map of various counties in Pennsylvania in 1958 (4:2).

One of the largest series in the collection, Photographs, contains primarily black and white prints. The photographs represent different time periods of Marjorie Hunter's life including her days as a student at Elon College, being a reporter for the Raleigh News and Observer, Winston-Salem Journal, and the New York Times. In addition, there are many photographs (most autographed) of past U.S. Presidents including Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Gerald Ford, and many more notable politicians. Furthermore, there is a large number of photographs showing Marjorie Hunter in a group setting or individually. Unfortunately, the majority of the people in the photographs are unidentified.

6. Printed Material. Inclusive: 1940-2000. Bulk: 1950-1970.
37 Folders. ca. 300 Items.
The largest and most diverse series in this collection, Printed Material, contains a wide variety of items, information, and time periods. This series is divided up alphabetically by different types of material and then chronologically, where applicable. There are two certificates within this series. One certifies that Marjorie Hunter is a member of the State of North Carolina's Society of the Prodigal Son (6:4). In addition, the other certificate mentions that Hunter is a part of "Ford's Flying Fellowship: Order of Exhausted Enigmatists", in which she accompanied Gerald Ford on 24 trips that included the first 100,000 miles of his travels (6:5). Marjorie Hunter's original diploma from Elon College (1942) is also included in this series (6:6).
Other items included in this series are copies of the Times Talk magazine, primarily from the late 1960's, early 1970's (6:9-6:11). Furthermore, there is a small group of articles from multiple magazines and newspapers that mainly offer biographical information about Marjorie Hunter (6:12-6:15). Of particular interest is an article in which Marjorie Hunter is interviewed by Lil Thompson (6:15). This particular interview includes multiple quotes from Marjorie Hunter, in turn representing aspects of her personality (6:15). Also included in the interview are some basic biographical facts about Marjorie Hunter (6:15).
The multiple newspaper clippings in this series are divided up into two groups. The first group of clippings contains articles that are written about Marjorie Hunter (6:14-6:19). The second groups of clippings are articles that Marjorie Hunter wrote during different times while reporting for various newspapers (6:20-6:25).
Perhaps the most visually interesting part of this series can be found in the collection of Hunter's press passes. Each press pass is from a different newspaper organization, event, and date. Moreover, each pass aesthetically looks different from the other [(ex. color, font, wording, size, etc…) (6:31-6:36)]. Overall, most of the passes contain the following information: name, place, and date of event; Marjorie Hunter's name; the newspaper that Hunter represented at the time; and occasionally a snapshot of Hunter.
