Summary
Journalist John B. Oakes (1913-2001) was an editorial writer and editor who worked for The New York Times from 1946 to 1993, and who is credited with developing the modern op-ed page. This collection contains some of Oakes's Times office files primarily from the 1970s and 1980s, and consists of internal correspondence and memoranda concerning the Editorial Department, as well as copies of speeches and a file of op-ed page articles and notes by Oakes.

Provenance (note)
  • This collection is comprised of office files from The New York Times Editorial Editor John B. Oakes. In preparation for his retirement from The Times, Oakes moved his office files to his home in 1989. Between 1990 and 1999, Oakes sent multiple samples of his papers to The Times' archives with the expectation that he would transfer the remainder there in the future. Instead he donated the collection to Columbia University. These sample files, however, were retained by The Times and assembled into the present John B. Oakes papers. They were never processed by The Times.
