This collection includes the correspondence of Isaac Spencer London, Board of Elections files, subject files, genealogical materials, files related to Isaac London, Jr., account books, booklets and pamphlets, and various miscellaneous materials.

The correspondence (1892-1964, n.d.) covers a wide variety of topics related to his personal, civic, political,and business affairs. Some correspondence deals with those topics of material in London's subject files, such as the files on churches, mills, racial integration, and the Washington Bicentennial celebration. Many letters contain informational material, which London apparently used in his newspaper articles, speeches, and histories. Notable correspondents include: Governors Morrison, Hoey, Broughton, Cherry, Umstead, Hodges, and Sanford, Senators Furnifold M. Simmons and Josiah Bailey, and Congressmen A. Paul Kitchin and Charles R. Jonas; political leaders at the state level such as R. Hunt Parker, I. Beverly Lake, H. Cloyd Philpott, Clifton Blue, Thad Eure; and other well known figures such as Josephus and Jonathan Daniels, Harold Tribble, Edward K. Graham, Jesse Helms and W. W. Finlator. Of particular interest is an autograph letter from Senator Josiah W. Bailey to London discussing the state of world affairs and the extent to which the United States should participate in the events leading to World War II (Sept. 16, 1939). Other topics of interest include the Truman-MacArthur controversy in April and May, 1951 and the political bitterness and strife resulting from the 1960 gubernatorial election.

Isaac London, Jr., served in World War II and the collection includes a number of his letters to his father. Many of these letters were written from his army base in Mississippi and give interesting accounts of life in the military. The collection also includes letters of sympathy sent after the death of Isaac London, Jr., a scrapbook, and photographs.

Many of the subject files were apparently kept for use as background and informational material for articles which London published in the  Post-Dispatch. The files contain related correspondence, notes, rough copies of the articles, loose and bound clippings, and miscellaneous materials used. The majority of the subject files concern the history and present-day affairs of Rockingham and Richmond County, but some material is broader in scope. (See the container list for a complete listing of the subject files.)

Isaac London collected some materials in his capacity as chairman of the Richmond County Board of Elections, including original returns and abstracts of votes from various Richmond County precincts for the 1938 primary election. He was also interested in genealogy and compiled information of this kind relating to many of the families of Richmond County. Much of this material was published in the  Post-Dispatch. The collection also includes account books (1917-1919, 1927-1935, 1930-1939) and subscription books (1917-1938) of the  Post-Dispatch and an account subscription book (1905-1906) for the  Anglo-Saxon, a Rockingham newspaper. The collection contains a large number of pamphlets and booklets dealing with various subjects including church life, the Civil War, the judicial decisions of Chief Justice Walter Clark, and various aspects of Rockingham and Richmond County life.

Among the miscellaneous items in the collection are biographical sketches of London and his father; an article by Kemp P. Battle, in manuscript form, entitled  "The Former Names of Richmond County;" articles by London on various old cemeteries in Richmond County including a list of persons buried in the Stewartsville cemetery; and various other items related to state politics or Richmond County history.

Although most of the material in this collection dates from 1892-1964, several items relate to earlier periods. A 1769 land grant from William Tryon to William Leggett bears the governor's signature as well as that of his secretary, John London. Some Civil War letters of a Rockingham soldier reveal interesting accounts of camp life. There is an 1835 letter from one of London's ancestors to his betrothed sweetheart. In the genealogical materials there are some Richmond County wills which date from the 19th century.

This collection has ten series: Correspondence; Board of Elections files;Civitan Club files; Awards; Subject Files; Genealogical Materials; [files related to] Isaac London, Jr.; Account Books; Pamphlets and Booklets; and Miscellaneous Materials. The correspondence is arranged chronologically and the subject files are arranged alphabetically.

A number of letters between London and several North Carolina congressmen concern the Truman-MacArthur controversy in April and May, 1951. Another group of correspondence relates to the issues and events concerning the gubernatorial campaign and election of 1960. Letters to London from liberal Raleigh minister W. W. Finlator, and conservative television news editor Jesse Helms reveal the political bitterness and strife resulting from the campaign. There are also copies of letters from London to Richard M. Nixon telling him of the support for him in Richmond County in the 1960 election (April 25, 1963), and to George C. Wallace congratulating him on his statements at a news interview (June 3, 1963).

Miscellaneous Genealogical Material

The collection includes a number of letters (1939, 1945-1947) from Isaac, Jr. to his father from his army base in Mississippi, and many of these give interesting accounts of life in the military during this period. There are a number of letters of sympathy sent to Mr. London upon the death of his son, which are bound in a separate notebook. Other materials of Isaac London, Jr., include a scrapbook, pictures, and miscellaneous items.
