The papers consist of 132 files of correspondence and papers, covering Einzig's professional career as writer and economist, and several manuscripts of published works. Of particular interest is the pre-war correspondence which includes letters from Maynard Keynes and Brendan Bracken and concerns German penetration into the Danubian and Balkan States. Also of interest is the section covering Einzig's career with the Financial Times which contains considerable material from Brendan Bracken.
The papers of Paul Einzig were deposited at Churchill College by his wife, Mrs Ruth Einzig, and his son, Richard Einzig, in 1975.
Although the files as a whole were not in any particular order when they came to the College, the contents of individual files had been classified to some extent by Einzig. For instance, correspondence with M.P.s (1/16, 1/17), Financial Times (1/18), Publishers (Section 2); the rest of the correspondence was arranged chronologically. Einzig's order has been maintained in general, but where material was clearly in the wrong file, it has been replaced. Like files have been put together, and the papers have divided naturally into the sections described.
