    Scope and Content

    Arthur Dupuy Eggleston, son of William Green Eggleston (q. v. C-B 474), joined the San Francisco Examiner as a reporter in 1927, went to the Call Bulletin in 1933, and to the Chroniclein 1936. In February 1937 he became the paper's labor editor, writing the column, “The Labor View”, which gained national recognition. In 1940 he was awarded a Nieman Fellowship for study at Harvard University. During the war he served in the Office of War Information and stayed in Germany until 1950, helping to set up a free German press. e returned to New York where he worked until his death in 1959.
    These papers, which were given to the Bancroft Library by his widow and by his mother in December, 1959, cover the period 1937-1941, when he was with the Chronicle, although there are a few clippings for an earlier column written for the Call Bulletin in 1935. They consist primarily of letters from union officials and others interested in the labor scene; manuscripts and related notes for some of his writings; scrapbooks containing clippings of his column and other labor items; and clippings of and copies of magazines with his articles.
