    The James Heyworth Dunne Collection in the Hoover Institution Archives consists of seven boxes of miscellaneous materials written or gathered by James Heyworth Dunne. The following is a partial listing of the contents of those boxes, based on my inspection of the collection on May 3rd and 5th, 1983. The list is partial because of the great amount of time it would take for a piece by piece enumeration of the contents. One of the peculiarities of the collection is that Heyworth Dunne (henceforward "JHD") tagged individual components with serially-numbered gummed labels. In many cases, the labels were affixed to monographic volumes, some of which were catalogued into the Hoover stack collection and the Hoover Middle East Collection; others of which remain uncatalogued; while still others, monographic in form but not in content, are to be found in the archive. In many other cases, however, the tags were affixed to envelopes of clippings or reproductions, or to individual pages, sheets, documents, photostats, and photographs. In such cases, when one of the boxes or a subdivision of a box contains a number of individually tagged and numbered items, no attempt has been made to identify the items, to list their individual members, nor even to indicate the span of numbers included in that part of the archive.
    In all cases in which item numbers are given, the numbers have been recorded after visual inspection of the archive. No attempt was made, however, to verify if envelopes or folders actually contained the numbered items listed on the outside of the containers.
    Unless an author is specified, the author or compiler of the materials in the archive is JHD. Titles enclosed within quotation marks are copied as is from the materials in the archive. Illegible words or questionalbe readings are indicated by this writer's use of (?). Statements that works are unpublished were copied as is from the materials in the archive, and may no longer be valid.
