Scope and arrangement
The papers do not reflect the literary and editorial aspects of publishing. To a large degree, they deal with a single event: the merger in 1960 of the New American Library and the Times Mirror Company and the subsequent development of NAL as an autonomous subsidiary. In this section there are letters and papers reflecting the operations and preparatory maneuvering leading up to the merger, the merger itself, and the immediate aftermath. There are also letters and papers (mostly printed material) which chronicle the efforts of the Times Mirror Company to expand and diversify; a few personal letters; some correspondence and papers relating to Penguin Books, Ballantine Books, and the Overlook Press; correspondence and papers relating to Enoch's other publishing ventures and his work as a consultant; and transcripts of his oral history, Encounter with the Holocaust, which was videotaped at Hampshire College.
