Correspondence 1950-2014 (MC 173 Series 1)
Size: 2 linear feet

The correspondence contains copies of outgoing letters, incoming letters, printed copies of emails, and telegrams. It includes clippings and other enclosures that accompanied both the incoming and outgoing correspondence. Two folders in the series contain letters addressed to Cyrus King's wife, Carolyn King. The material ranges in date from 1950 to 2014, but the majority dates from after 1985.

The vast majority of the correspondence was generated through Cyrus King's work to promote civil rights and his work on local, state, and national political campaigns for Democratic politicians. The chronologically arranged correspondence also contains some letters of a personal and professional nature, including some related to King's work at the North Carolina State University Library.

The correspondence is arranged chronologically and thereafter alphabetically by correspondent or by topic. There is a great deal of overlap between the two groupings - correspondence can be found from the same individuals in both the chronologically and the alphabetically arranged materials.
