Scope and Contents: The Selected Papers of Eoin O'Mahony, barrister, genealogist, newspaper columnist, radio personality, and lecturer, mainly document his time spent as a Visiting Professor in Southern Illinois University's Department of Journalism in 1966 and as Visiting Artist in 1967. O'Mahony's papers include correspondence, several manuscripts, and various printed material about O'Mahony. The correspondence consists of over 100 letters to and from O'Mahony, the majority of which were written between 1965 and 1971. Much of the correspondence concerns O'Mahony's activities at and on behalf of Southern Illinois University, including many responses to his inquiries about the manuscripts of twentieth-century Irish writers, which he was trying to help obtain for Morris Library Special Collections.
