Contents of the Collection

1. Diaries and Calendars, 1946-2015

Jack Matlock's journals, diaries, appointment books, and notes, with the bulk of materials dating from the mid-1980s through his retirement from the Foreign Service in 1991. Matlock's private accounts of his activities during the later years of his foreign service career were thorough and prolific. He embraced personal computing and developed his own Cyrillic font in LaTex to allow for journaling in Russian and English. This series contains printouts of his personal diaries kept during his work for Reagan's White House and as Ambassador to the USSR.

Matlock used his diaries as reference points for later writings and reviews of his own career, and subsequently added and edited his own entries to include newly revealed insights or information. This series includes Matlock's bound journals with handwritten entries, his "original" typed diaries (as printed out in the 1980s), edited and supplemented diaries (which appear to have been printed at a later point) that include Matlock's inserted notes, research, annotations, corrections, and other related information. There is also a set of declassified memoranda and other FOIA'd materials, as well as collected published materials, which allowed Matlock to cross-reference events he experienced with other coverage or perspectives.

The series also contains a variety of appointment books and calendars, some more detailed and some lightly used. The spiral notebooks and loose notes, arranged chronologically, overlap with Matlock's notes located throughout the Foreign Service Series - some in standalone folders and some filed with specific events or topics. This sorting reflects the original arrangement of the papers at the time of acquisition by Rubenstein Library.

2. Foreign Service, 1950-1991

This series contains materials created and acquired during Jack Matlock's career as a foreign service officer for the U.S. Dept. of State (1956-1981), his appointments as ambassador to Czechoslovakia (1981-1983) and the Soviet Union (1987-1991), and his work for the National Security Council and the White House (1983-1987). Materials are grouped by phases of Matlock's career, and are largely arranged chronologically and then by format. Rebecca Matlock's official duties and personal activities, especially as wife to the US Ambassador, is also well documented in this series. The series contains general and personal correspondence, government memoranda, invitations, schedules and programs, official itineraries and logistics, cables received, clippings and reports collected, specific event files for substantial activities at the embassy, and other administrative and topical information relating to the operations of the embassies in Accra, Dar es Salaam, Prague, and Moscow during the Matlocks' career. There is also significant material from Matlock's home leave, travels and work in the United States, and his academic appointment as Diplomat-in-Residence at Vanderbilt University in 1979-1980.

Early career, 1950-1971

Jack Matlock initially began working for the State Department while studying and pursuing his doctorate in Russian literature. Early materials include his applications and correspondence regarding his background checks, as well as early research files from his projects on the Index to Stalin's Works and his first dissertation on the Union of Soviet Writers. Research files overlap between the Academia and Foreign Service series. Once hired fulltime by the State Dept., Matlock created reports and collected materials on Soviet internal affairs, writing intelligence briefs on specific publications and activities in the Soviet Union.

The subseries includes his travels and various assignments in Germany, Moscow, and Vienna, and then his transfer to Ghana and later Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam. By this point they had five children; the official Foreign Service series overlaps with the Personal Series documenting the family's activities and children's education during this period. The Matlocks left Tanzania in 1970 and returned for Jack to work as a scholar at the Senior Seminar in the Foreign Service Institute; his research on Japan and the Soviet Union is also present in this subseries. Files are largely arranged chronologically with a group of correspondence collected for the period 1950-1971.

EUR/SOV Office, Diplomat-in-Residence (Vanderbilt), and Charge d'Affaires (Moscow), 1969-1981

Jack Matlock was promoted to director of the Office of Soviet Union Affairs in 1971 and became deputy chief of mission in the Moscow embassy in 1974. This subseries includes his correspondence, collected reports and cables, and activities in Moscow during this period. The bulk of the subseries relates to his work as Diplomat-in-Residence at Vanderbilt and his subsequent work as deputy director of the Foreign Service Institute in Washington, DC. Materials include his speech notes and other travel and official representation activities, which offer insights into US official policies and language on the US-USSR relationship during this period. By 1981, Matlock had been appointed as the next US Ambassador to Czechoslovakia, but temporarily served as ad interim Charge d'Affaires at the Moscow embassy until the new USSR Ambassador, Arthur Hartman, arrived.

National Security Council / Special Assistant to President Reagan, 1983-1986

Jack Matlock was appointed to the National Security Council as Senior Director of European and Soviet Affairs while he still served as ambassador to Czechoslovakia in 1983. The collection's materials during this period have been split according to his work responsibilities, but overlaps persist for this window of time as he travelled between Prague and Washington. There are also letters between him and Rebecca during their separation, held in this subseries.

This period includes significant materials regarding negotiations between the US and USSR, leading to the first summit between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev in Geneva in 1985 and subsequent summit in Reykjavik in 1986. The subseries includes a wide range of Matlock's notes, memoranda, and correspondence documenting meetings between US and Soviet officials. Also included are Matlock's drafts of of potential policies, speeches for Reagan, and his thoughts on different approaches that the US might pursue.

USSR ambassadorship, 1987-1991

Jack Matlock was appointed to be the US Ambassador to the Soviet Union in January 1987, and served from April 1987 until August 1991. This subseries contains materials documenting his work, and Rebecca's service as ambassador's wife, including their formal appearances at various events in Moscow; hosting US officials and other guests at the embassy and at Spaso House, the ambassador's residence; and their frequent travels to various places within the Soviet Union territory to visit and represent the United States. Materials are grouped chronologically by year, and then subsequently arranged by format: Reports/Clippings, Cables, Memoranda, Correspondence, Topics, and Events.

The subseries contains correspondence, memoranda, incoming cables and reports, and other government documents and administrative items relating to specific issues and events. Of note are the visit by the Gorbachevs to the United States in 1987; the Reagan-Gorbachev summit in Moscow in 1988; and the Bush-Gorbachev summits in Malta (1989) and Moscow (1991). There are a couple of thank-you letters included following these major events from Presidents Reagan and Bush. Recurring themes include security at the Moscow embassy; exit visas for Soviet dissidents; coverage of US activities and attitudes toward the US in the Soviet press; and interpretations of Soviet activities/attitudes by US officials. The Matlocks actively participated in various US cultural expositions throughout the Soviet Union, including attending opening exhibits for Information USA during 1987 and 1988, which toured several Soviet states. They also frequently hosted Soviet and American guests at Spaso House, including poets, musicians, and performers, and the subseries includes official guest lists and planning materials discussing the intended messaging and tone for these cultural exchanges. This subseries includes drafts of different speeches delivered by Matlock, typically in Russian, when he was the invited guest at different Soviet academies or organizations. There is a significant amount of material relating to Matlock's speech in Latvian at the Riga Chautauqua conference, which the US participated in despite not recognizing the Soviets' occupation of Latvia.

There is much accompanying information for the events in this subseries held in the Diaries Series and in the Writings Series -- Rebecca's accounts and perspectives are included in several essays as well as in the Dear Everybody Letters, held in the Writings Series.

3. Consecutive Files, 1987-2001

This series consists of a wide range of documents filed "consecutively," meaning largely chronologically by month, by Jack Matlock and his staff at the American Embassy in Moscow. It heavily overlaps the Foreign Service Series and should be consulted alongside that series for any documentation of the Matlocks' activities during Jack's term as ambassador. Materials were arranged by month. The series consists of government memos, draft schedules, expected guest lists, and other policy briefs and reports collected and filed by embassy staffers for Jack and Rebecca Matlock.

Following his retirement from the Foreign Service in 1991, it appears Jack Matlock sporadically used this filing system for tracking general information about his upcoming engagements and activities.

This series contains an array of topics and groups of files collected and maintained by the Matlocks throughout their lives.

Materials have been both assembled by Rubenstein Library into files, or have been retained in existing files as originally sorted by the Matlocks. There are also small subseries for the United World Federalists, which Jack and Rebecca Matlock participated in actively while students at Duke University in the late 1940s; Rebecca Matlock's Spaso House Files, research and other event files from specific Spaso activities during their ambassadorship to Moscow; and Jack Matlock's Language Training files, with his notes and lessons on a wide range of languages he studied during his Foreign Service career.

United World Federalists, 1946-1950

Collected materials from Jack and Rebecca's leadership and participation in the Duke Student Chapter of the United World Federalists. The Matlocks served as student leaders for this organization and led student recruitment and training institutes in North Carolina. The correspondence relates to the principles and logistics of the organization, and also includes personal correspondence from friends and other UWF enthusiasts referencing the Matlocks' studies, activities, and relationship. Other materials include photographs, printed pamphlets and literature, and coverage and clippings about the students and adult members of the group.

Some materials overlap with Matlock's foreign service work; most other topics relate to issues in Russia and newly independent states (NIS) following the collapse of the Soviet Union, including nuclear weapons, economic concerns and investments, NATO expansion, and Russian culture.

This subseries contains files grouped by organization, largely relating to Jack Matlock's service or consultancy work and including both non-profits as well as business ventures undertaken by him or his family following his retirement from the Foreign Service. Files contain correspondence, proposals and project plans, contracts, reports, event plans, and research. Notable are the range of organizations and companies exploring business ventures in Russia, Ukraine, and Eastern Europe following the collapse of the Soviet Union; Jack Matlock explored many of these opportunities himself and also served as a consultant or resource for other ventures. This series documents the Matlocks' work with Ethnic American Broadcasting Company, later renamed Russian-American Broadcasting Company, as well as their later work with SkyView and other satellite and media companies. There are also significant materials from the US-Kazahkstan Business Council and the Matlocks' Russian clothing company, Red Well. Other organizations which Matlock was actively involved with include the Atlantic Council and the Council for Foreign Relations. Of note is the files on the Chautauqua Conference, which overlaps with Jack and Rebecca Matlock's participation in Chautauqua in the 1980s during their years of foreign service. There is also overlap between these files and the chronologically arranged Correspondence subseries in the Personal Files series.

Name Files, 1950s-2010s

This subseries contains clippings and writings by others, filed by author or subject's name. Matlock collected a number of these files in the years immediately following his retirement, largely relating to his own research interests as he worked on his book. Also of note are the number of proofs and reports he collected by other foreign policy scholars; he maintained an active correspondence with many of them. The Gorbachev files include photographs of Matlock with Gorbachev dating from the 1990s.

Clippings and Interviews about/with JM, 1967-2010s

6. Writings, 1950s-2016

The Writings Series includes notes, outlines, drafts, and published versions of the Matlocks' writings. Materials are grouped into subseries by type of work and author.

The bulk of the Writings Series consists of Jack Matlock's numerous articles, essays, and short works of non-fiction, some of which overlaps with his Foreign Service career and some of which he wrote in response to world events following his retirement. The Articles subseries has been arranged by title. It contains book reviews, op-eds, speech drafts, letters to the editor, researched essays, and reflective or memoir-style prose. Topics tend to be the Soviet Union or Russia, U.S. foreign policy in Europe, NATO, the United Nations, and other commentary.

There are two subseries for Jack Matlock's books: Autopsy on an Empire (Random House, 1995) and Reagan and Gorbachev (Random House, 2005). Materials in these subseries include research, outlines, drafts, and correspondence. Most drafts are dated but are not necesarily arranged in chronological order.

The remainder of Jack Matlock's writings are grouped as Other Works, and include some preliminary outlines and drafts for Superpower Illusions, as well as some translations and unfinished short stories.

Rebecca Matlock's Spaso House subseries contains drafts and outlines for this book, published in Russia in 2004. There are additional subject files on Spaso House in the Subject Files series.

The subseries for RM's Other Writings contains drafts and projects dating from the 1950s through 2017. Most pieces are anecdotal or reflective on the Matlocks' travels and experiences living around the world. There are some unidentified creative works, presumably by Rebecca.

Finally, there is a subseries for the Dear Everybody Letters, written by Rebecca during the Matlocks' foreign service work in Prague and Moscow, and sent to friends and family in the United States. These newsletter-style photocopied mass letters were collected by Joe Matlock and saved for the archive. The Dear Everybody Letters contain detailed descriptions of people and scenes, and RM's personal insights into the family's daily activities at the embassy.
