About 400 items.

The earliest letters are addressed to Moses Harris and Lucy Plummer (Phillips) Russell from her parents, Charels and Laura Caroline (Battle) Phillips, concerning family matters and local affairs in Rockgham, N.C., and Chapel Hill, N.C. A birthday note, 4 August 1887, from his frandmother Phillips is the first item addressed to Charles Phillips Russell. This is followed by a letter of 5 May 1893, from half-brother Reid Russell discussing family and his studies at the University of North Carolina. Letters from a former teacher, Anna M. Smith, describe her life in Blanco, Tex. Her letter, 15 February 1899, refers to Russell's preparations for entering the United States Naval Academy. Later letters from maternal uncles Alexander Phillips of the Bible Institute for Chr; istian Workers in Nashville, Tenn., (29 August 1900) and Samuel Phillips (15 April 1902) make clear that Russell enrolled at UNC, with which the Phillips family had long been associated.

With the exception of a few routine letters, there is a considerable gap in the papers at this point. The first item from Russell's post-graduation career is a letter of recommendation (21 August 1921) for him from business partner Roy Dickinson, associate editor at the Printer's Ink Publishing Company, New York, N.Y. Other letters relate to the publication of Russell's articles in Advertisers' Weekly, The World, McNaught's, and American Mercury; to circulation and publishers' receptions of Russell's manuscripts; and to appearances on the New York lecture circuit. Most of this correspondence is related, however, to the researching, publication, and public reception of Russell's early biographical studies Benjamin Franklin: The First Civilized American (1926), John Paul Jones: Man of Action (1927, and, to a lesser degree, Emerson: The Wisest American (1929). The Franklin book was both a popular success and important in establishing a new trend toward critical biography. There are also materials relating to Russell's first novel The Fumbler (1928) and to Red Tiger (1929), the tale of Russell's 1928 travels in Mexico and the Yucatan exploring the remains of Mayan culture; detailing negotiations with Bretano's, the Macaulay Company, and agents Brandt and Brandt about advances and royalties, book club sales, jacket design, publicity, and serialization; and documenting Russell's association with Printer's Ink Company as writer and editor.

There are scattered materials relating to Russell's financial affairs, including stock investments and properties. Personal letters are chiefly from Lucy Phillips Russell on topics including state and regional politics; Rockingham affairs; family concerns; and her Presbyterian church work, book club membership, and summer camp counseling. These letters also document Charles Phillips Russell's activities, including his writings (e.g., 26 May 1924; 21 February 1926, 7 March 1926, 12 June 1926), production of his dramas (17 August 1925, 11 February 1928), a visit with Helen Keller (3 January 1926), a 1930 trip to France (25 April 1930), and Horace Williams (26 July 1927, 11 February 1928).

There are also letters from cousin Cornelia Spencer Love about drama at the UNC, including the activities of Frederick Koch and Paul Green (11 September 1925); Horace Williams discussing the writings of both men and the development of a new scheme promoting logic as a working philosophy of life (21 November 1925, 6 February 1927); Parisian editor and friend Leon Bazalgette on Russell's writing (28 March 1926); former Daily Express colleague Pat Hastings describing changes at the paper (24 March 1926); and Frank Porter Graham reporting his recommendation, with Louis Graves, of Russell for a position in the UNC English Department (1 August 1930).

Letters from Berkeley G. Tobey, cousin Frances Phillips, and Otho Ross concern writing and publishing, the promotion of Horace Williams and this work through the Horace Williams Philosophical Society (26 September 1929, 1 July 1930), and the appointment of Frank Porter Graham as UNC president (1 July 1930). There are also indications of Russell's involvement with social concerns, including his support of the League for Mutual Aid and the Committee of 100 for Defense of Imprisioned Needle Trade Workers.

Letters from Russell's mother, Lucy Phillips Russell, dominate personal correspondence, particular after 1945. Beginning in 1937, she wrote about efforts to produce and market her memoirs, which appeared in segments in regional newspapers (7 November 1948) and appeared in book form as A Rare Pattern (1957). Her interests in family heritage; her son's activities; and Chapel Hill's Presbyterian minister, Charles Jones (2 July 1952, 8 December 1952, 1 January 1953, 2 March 1953, 4 August 1953) are also documented.

Russell married Caro Mae Green, a native of Harnett County, N.C., in 1931; they had two daughters, Claire Phillips (1932- ) and Avery Battle (1936- ). There are scattered letters between Russell and his wife, particularly July-August 1939 when he was teaching at the Southern Summer School for Workers and summer 1950 when his family traveled to Mexico.

After retiring from UNC, Russell continued writing, teaching, and working as a community activist. Beginning in May 1954, he served as director and editor of the Chapel Hill News-Leader, but policy differences with other staff members led to his severing his connection with the paper in August 1958 (e.g., 26 September 1944, June 1945, June-August 1958). Russell wrote articles for the Raleigh News and Observer, the Chapel Hlll Weekly, and the Progressive Farmer. He negotiated with the Rogers Terrill agency and publishers Dodd and Mead about his Thomas Jefferson: Champion of the Free Mind (1956). From 1958 to 1962, he worked on a history of the North Carolina regiments of the Continental Line for the North Carolina Society of the Cincinnati (published privately as North Carolina in the Revolutionary War in 1965). He wrote a play, called "Queen of April," about the Civil War romance of the UNC President David Swain's daughter, Ellie Swain, with a Yankee soldier, which was never published. With the sponsorship of the local historical society, he prepared a pamphlet on 23 Historic Sites in Chapel Hill and the informal local history, These Old Stone Walls (1972).

Russell was active in the North Carolina Society of County and Local Historians, the Historical Society of North Carolina, and the North Carolina Revolutionary Bicentennial Commission, and he often spoke to groups on local history topics. He was also active as an advisor to those seeking assistance with their writing. In 1961, he instituted a series of private classes for small groups of adults and provided advice on an individual basis to former students and others. Always an avid student of educational methodology, he began a manuscript in 1966 called "Great Teahers and What They Taught." He received awards honoring his career as writer and teacher, including honorary membership in the North Carolina Press Association (27 July 1950) and honorary degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

In addition to scattered letters from Lucy Phillips Russell and his children and grandchildren, there are letters from Otho G. Ross; philosopher-minister Sidney Robins; Frances Phillips; poet Thad Stem; newspapermen Clifton Daniel, Tom Wicker (24 February 1957, 27 June 1966, 16 February 1973), Rolfe Weill, Ed Yoder, and Don McKee; author Marion Brown; and scriptwriter Carl Selwyn Pugh.

Russell's continued participation in community affairs is shown in letters relating to the Chowder and Torch Club, the Chapel Hill Bird Club, the Association for Aging and Community Relations, and the Allied Arts Council of Durham. His devotion to the preservation of natural resources is showing in letters documenting his efforts to preserve the University-held Mason Farm and in his correspondece with noted naturalist John Terres (1967-1973). He wrote in support of the admission of women to the University of North Carolina Order of the Golden Fleece (27 March 1970), of which he was a charter member. On current events, he often wrote to politicians offering his opinions, including letters to Hubert H. Humphrey on United States involvement in Vietnam (26 September 1968), New York Congressman Allard K. Lowenstein on draft reform, and Senator Geroge McGovern on racial problems (1972).
