Ken Auletta (b. 1942) is a journalist and author known for his coverage of political, governmental and economic matters, often focused on New York; since the early 1990s he has written mainly about the media and communications industries. The Ken Auletta papers contain correspondence, typescripts, galleys, research materials, sound recordings and a video recording representing his writings, including feature articles for The New Yorker, his Daily News column, and several books. Correspondence (1975-1993) contains letters from prominent figures in politics, business and the media reacting to Auletta's work. Writings are documented by typescripts and galleys with revisions by Auletta and/or Jacob Epstein, his editor at Random House, and research materials, including interview transcripts and subject files containing clippings, press releases and some correspondence. Also present are notebooks (1983-1993) used for his Daily News column and other work; sound recordings (mainly interviews and speeches recorded as research material for his books and articles); and a video (1995) recording an event at which Auletta was the speaker.
