Scope and arrangement
The Anna Quindlen papers (1990-1993) contain memoranda from New York Times colleagues and letters from colleagues and readers responding to her New York Times column "Public and Private." Also present are copies of Quindlen's replies. Readers' letters feature discussions on a variety of political and social topics, notably abortion, women's roles in the Catholic Church, and the 1992 presidential campaign. These include both positive and negative reactions to her writings.
Letters are arranged chronologically by year.
