Scope and Content: This series documents John Haseks life as a writer of articles, papers, reviews, and other relatively short documents. Many such articles were published in various different magazines and newspapers, and often provoked response (both favourable and unfavourable), from the general public. This public feedback came in the form of both correspondence and formal articles, which can also be found in this sub-series. Also included is material documenting his life as a journalist and a contributing editor.
Arrangement is arbitrary.
Title: Title is based on contents of the sub-series.
Finding Aid: A listing of the articles which Hasek wrote can be found in the appendix to this inventory. Where possible, title, date, place of publication, and number of copies is indicated.
Other: It should be noted that there is a possibility that some of the articles within this sub-series may have been meant for oral presentations. Without any markings to that effect, however, all written material which appears to be in article format has been placed in this sub-series.
