Scope and Contents

This accession contains Winks's professional correspondence from his time as a professor, student work, teaching files, conference presentations, and research files. The bulk of the accession consists of drafts, research, and notes for Winks's book, Cloak and Gown: Scholars in America's Secret War, which explored the relationship between universities, particularly Yale, and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and its predecessor, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Also included are Winks's undergraduate papers; his teaching files from his time as a professor at Yale; papers written by Yale students in Winks's classes; and research materials for Winks's unpublished biography of William Francis Drummond.
