Scope and Content of Collection

The John K. Cooley papers at the Hoover Institution Archives began as a collection of miscellaneous documents created and acquired by Cooley while reporting as a journalist from Algeria during that country's war for independence in the early 1960s. This material was donated by Cooley to the Hoover Institution Archives in 1963, and includes propaganda leaflets, interview transcripts, transcripts of Cooley's news dispatches and radio broadcasts, and other printed matter, especially material relating to the French military revolt led by the Organisation Armée Secrète in Algiers in 1961.
The remaining papers in this collection were donated by Cooley's family shortly after his death in 2008, and chiefly document his activities as a journalist and author from the 1970s onward, while he worked for the Christian Science Monitoras well as ABC News, based alternately in Lebanon, Cyprus, and Greece. Although Cooley had maintained an extensive personal archive throughout his career as a journalist in North Africa and the Middle East, much of it was lost in 1975, when he was forced to flee his home in Beirut during the Lebanese Civil War.
The papers in his extant collection are divided in series by writings and speeches, research projects for ABC News, photographs, personal papers, and collected miscellany. The writings contain material related to some of his earlier books, but the bulk consists of typescript drafts and background materials for his last two books, An Alliance against Babylon (2005) and Currency Wars(2008). In addition, reprints of published articles and newspaper stories, as well as drafts of stories, texts of speeches and conference papers, and proposed projects are also included. Many of the speeches and unpublished conference papers contain autobiographical material about Cooley and his career as a journalist, and chapter drafts of his unfinished memoirs are also included in this series. A separate series is provided for research material related to stories he was assigned with ABC News. Of note in this series is the research he conducted while working on an Emmy Award-winning ABC News Primetime television special on the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988. In addition to his work on the ABC project, Cooley also planned to write a book about the bombing, and material on that can be found in the series on proposed projects. Rounding out the collection are assorted photographs Cooley took or collected while on assignment in Algeria, Yemen, Western Sahara, Morocco, and Lebanon; as well as reporters' notebooks containing notes from interviews and for stories he planned to write.

Arrangement

The collection is organized into 8 series, by format of material and then chronologically within the series and subseries.
