Scope and Contents
Contains letters directed to The National Review concerning Liebman's coming out letter and William F. Buckley, Jr.'s response.
The prevailing view is that it was inappropriate for The National Review to publish the letter, and that Liebman is a "Sodomite,"
etc. Some letters applaud Liebman's courage. Of interest are the letters from Harry Jaffa and Dr. George Mohun regarding Liebman
and his homosexuality. Liebman's responses are filed in Series I a. Correspondence between Liebman and William F. Buckley,
Jr. was separated from the general correspondence by placing it in its own folder. It includes drafts of Liebman's corning
out letter and Buckley's comments. This file also includes Buckley's comments on a draft version of Coming Out Conservative
in 1991, and his review of the published volume in 1992.
This folder is arranged alphabetically by last name, with anonymous letters filed in the front. The letters to William F.
Buckley, Jr. are separated out into their own folder.
