Scope and arrangement
The collection contains correspondence, memoranda, newspaper clippings, photographs, and legal documents. Approximately one-third of the material deals with the Ochs Estate. Most of the remainder concerns Adler's military service, along with some family and personal material: there are relatively few documents pertaining to the operation of the New York Times. Additional material about Adler can be found in the Adolph Ochs Papers and the Arthur Hays Sulzberger Papers.
Material germane to two or more titles is not, as a rule, duplicated in the relevant folders: instead, it is stored in the one deemed most important, and cross-referenced to other relevant titles. Papers dealing with specific subjects are stored in the subject folders rather than in the biographical folders of the persons involved, and their names are covered by cross-references made from the principal names and the next most important subject titles, but they are not exhaustive.
