The bulk of this addition consists of his correspondence with personal as well as professional acquaintances for the years 1910-1971. Frequent correspondents include Phillip Jessup, Myres S. McDougal, Charlotte Kohler and Eberhard Deutsch, and occasional correspondents are such prominent figures as Robert Kennedy, Dean Rusk, John Stennis and George Kennan. Other legal scholars with whom Dillard corresponded include Lon Fuller, Arnold Wolfers and John Bassett Moore.
