Series I.b. Power in America: the Politics of the New Class (New York: New American Library, 1967).

Power in America discusses the idea of a New Class of intellectuals wielding power in American society. Inspired by Milan Diljas’ The New Class, Bazelon applied Diljas’ analysis of the Communist system to American culture, economy, and politics, within the context of a larger discussion of the idea of the New Class among intellectuals. Includes correspondence with the publisher, research notes, galleys, and author’s proofs, and three revised, partial drafts of the book. Also of note are carbon copies of the first three chapters annotated by Jason Epstein.

A large notebook contains clippings and notes for a projected book on O’Hara. The series also includes materials related to Bazelon speeches and conferences he attended. Most notable among the latter is the 50th anniversary conference of the American Library in Paris, with bilingual transcripts of Bazelon’s discussion with French philosopher Paul Ricouer at the conference and a copy of John Kenneth Galbraith’s keynote address.

Series I.f. “The New Class Study,” 1966 – 1981

“The New Class Study” documents the progress of an ongoing intellectual discussion initiated in large part by Bazelon’s article in the August, 1966 issue of Commentary. The collection includes a copy of Commentary containing the 1966 article as well as issues of the magazine with articles, letters, and reviews that made significant contributions to the discussion. “The New Class” section of the Literary Work Series documents the evolution of the idea from transcriptions of taped conversations in 1962 involving Bazelon, the lawyer Bernard Rosenberg, and the writer F. William Howton, and early notes made by Bazelon. Bazelon’s participation in the subsequent development of the discussion includes the text of a speech given by Bazelon at North Texas State University in 1968, and articles written for Urban Review in 1969 and for Dissent in 1979. Of particular interest is Bazelon’s participation as advisor to the project that resulted in the volume The New Class? Ed. B. Bruce-Briggs (New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction Books, 1979). Bazelon received drafts of the essays published in the volume and the collection contains his annotations and commentaries on these drafts.

            Series I.g. Ghost-Writing, 1959 – 1966

Between 1959 and 1965, Bazelon worked as a ghostwriter for his uncle, Judge David L. Bazelon. David L. Bazelon sat on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia from 1949 until his retirement in 1986. He was well-known for his opinions establishing the right of mentally ill patients to treatment, most notably the Durham decision in 1954. Bazelon was involved in the preparation of lectures and articles by his uncle. The files contained in this section of the series include, besides drafts of lectures and articles, the correspondence between Bazelon, his uncle, and third parties, including editors. There are also collections of clippings and reprints that served as background and research for the topics covered in the writing. Also included is “The Report of the Task Force on Law” of the President’s Panel on Mental Retardation (1962) of which David L. Bazelon served as chairman. The Ghost-writing section of the series includes a folder with material related to a speech given by attorney Morris D. Liebman to the Law School of Northwestern University on which Bazelon worked. Finally, there is a folder of notes related to Bazelon’s brief employment as a writer and interviewer for the Mike Wallace television show in the late 1950s.
