Scope and Contents:
Contains personal and business correspondence. Occasionally includes speeches by Arthur C. Clarke, editor's notes on various novels, interview transcripts, photos sent by the letter writers (sometimes of Clarke,) newspaper clippings and pages from magazines.

Some correspondence was grouped separately, by correspondent, even though these correspondents also occur in the general correspondence.

In 1998, Arthur Clarke's correspondence with Lord Dunsany was published as a book.

Notable correspondents include: J.B.S. Haldane, Wernher von Braun, Ben Bova, Val Cleaver, Fred Clarke, Bill Temple, John W. Campbell, Horace Dall, Robert & Ginny Heinlein, Hugh Hefner, Felix Godwin, Patrick Moore, Willian Macquitty, Carl Sagan, Luis Alvarez, Stanley Kubrick, Esther Goddard, Nigel Calder, Issac Asimov, Michael Moorcock, Willy Ley, John Glenn, Ray Bradbury, Brian Aldiss, George Mueller, James Webb, Paul Garber, David Gerrold, Gregory Peck, Ivan Yefremov, David Lasser, Owen Gingrich, Gore Vidal, Douglas Trumbell, Sam Youd, Frederick Pohl, Fred Durant, Mike Wilson, Roger Caras, Robert K.G.

Arrangement:
Original order by the creator was chronological by year, split into 2-3 months at a time, then alphabetically. Sometimes correspondence was in store-bought file folder with sections, sometimes in handmade "binders" but always the same arrangement. Archivist physically re-created this arrangement by using paper wrappers to represent each section. When the section was labeled by the creator, the archivist labeled the paper wrapper the same. If paper wrapper is blank then so was the original section tab.

There are some missing years in the correspondence. Misc. correspondence found loose in the collection was placed at the end of the series.

When appropriate, the processing archivist added a description beneath the file unit title.
