The correspondence is presented alphabetically, with dates and a note of any material of particular personal or technical interest.

Extensive correspondence with an individual is lodged in a personal folder or folders; shorter exchanges are grouped together in a miscellaneous folder.

Shorter correspondence relating to projects undertaken when Strachey was on the staff of National Research Development Council appears under N in MS. Eng. misc. b. 300/J.27 and MS. Eng. misc. b. 300/J.28 and is itemised. See also the correspondence with Lord Halsbury, MS. Eng. misc. b. 300/J.12-MS. Eng. misc. b. 300/J.19.

Not all the letters survive, and a note has been made in the entries for cases when only Strachey's carbon remains.
