Of interest are portions of Knox's diary, 1940-1941, written while working in the firm of Loesch and Burke, Chicago, and commenting on his daily activities, McReynolds, the war in Europe, and his isolationist sentiments. Knox's interest in the Civil War and World War I is reflected in two articles based on letters collected by him: Four unpublished eye-witness accounts written by participants in the American Civil War (1861-1865), 1977, and Unpublished eyewitness accounts by British aviators in World War I (all shot down by Baron Manfred von Richthofen).
