Papers: Series IV, 1926-1985 (inclusive).

Series IV, Correspondence, contains two subseries, Alphabetical and Chronological, and reflects Murray's filing system. It includes personal and professional correspondence, and documents the variety of issues and movements with which she was involved. There are copies of most of Murray's correspondence with Eleanor Roosevelt. Murray had a long, although not especially close, relationship with Roosevelt beginning when Murray wrote to the First Lady in 1939 and continuing until the latter's death in 1962. Although Murray was occasionally a guest at the White House or at Valkill Cottage, the relationship was carried on largely by letter.
