John McDonald papers, 1890-1999 (bulk 1945-1997).

The John McDonald Papers consist of correspondence, manuscripts, and research materials related to McDonald's published writings on the practice and history of American business, management, game theory, and fishing. Also in the collection are files of his personal correspondence and a few papers documenting his political, social, and professional involvements, including his work with the American Committee for the Defense of Leon Trotsky and the Dewey Commission in 1937, and during the 1940s with the American Film Center. The bulk of the collection concerns McDonald's published writings, particularly his books on strategic business practices and fishing history as well as many of his Fortune magazine articles. Also in the collection is material related to his unfinished works in fiction and non-fiction, including a work on the history of Detroit. The files contain personal and business correspondence, research material, notes, contracts, drafts, tear sheets, reviews, and fan mail, and a set of diary-like "logbooks," but little in the way of visual materials. Also in the collection are a selection of books, pamphlets, and serials from McDonald's library that relate to his research interests and were annotated by him, and guidebooks for Florida, Michigan, and Montana that were published by the Federal Writers' Project.
