Time correspondents sent their dispatches by telegraph or other means to the New York office, where they were retyped, duplicated, and circulated to editors. The dispatches in this collection cover foreign and domestic affairs. Education is well covered, but not other departments such as science, cinema, sport, etc. For 1942-5, the bulk of the material is foreign and war-related. Afterwards, the proportion of foreign news is much lower. Besides dispatches from individual correspondents, there are weekly memoranda from Time's Washington bureau with story suggestions and briefings.
