Scope and Content Note

Edward Weeks (February 19, 1898-March 14, 1989), editor and writer, was a friend of McGill. Weeks was also the editor of Atlantic Monthly (1938-1966) and senior consultant for Atlantic Monthly Press (1966-?) which published some of McGill's books and Ralph McGill, Reporter by Harold Martin.

Most of the materials in this subseries relate to the writing of Ralph McGill, Reporter, mainly in the form of correspondence. Edward Weeks compiled a list of names of those who had meaningful contact with McGill in some way and wrote to them asking "What was most memorable in your relationship with Ralph McGill?" This information was to be used by Harold Martin in writing the McGill biography. Other items include photographs and reviews.

The rest of the material in this subseries includes writings by Ralph McGill, writings about Ralph McGill, correspondence relating to McGill's book The South and Southerner, clippings, and miscellaneous notes on The Bible.
