Correspondents found in the earlier materials from his pre-political career as a wartime public servant include the Canadian Wheat Board, United Grain Growers, James Richardson and Sons Ltd., and the Wartime Prices and Trade Board. Of note are letters to and from C.D. Howe found throughout this series. The memoir files include correspondence with publishers, editors' and readers' comments, as well as annotated manuscript copies. His speeches on such subjects as his reflections on the public service, ethics, government efficiency, Brazil, Canada's import trade, government fiscal policy and business, Canada-US trade and national identity, span his pre-political and political career.
