Scope and Content Note

The correspondence falls into 4 main groupings. The first group (1910-13) consists of Wilson's letters as Ambassador to Mexico. These letters deal with arrangements for settling in Mexico, routine embassy business, the American investor colony residing in Mexico, and Robert H. Murray, a columnist for the "Harper's Weekly" magazine. The second group (1922-23) consists of correspondence between Wilson and William F. Buckley, Sr. The third group (1926-29) consists of Wilson's attempts to answer and gain retractions for various critical articles published about him. The fourth group (1939-40) is correspondence by Wilson's sons John Vajen Wilson, a banker, and Warden McKeo Wilson, a diplomat, centering around clearing their father of further criticism published by "Time" magazine and "Saturday Evening Post".
