The Manley O. Hudson Papers document the professional activities and interests of a prominent international lawyer during the last ten years of his career. The papers include background materials on several important legal cases with which he was involved as a consultant. They also contain materials relating to his tenure as a professor of international law at the Naval War College.
The collection falls naturally into three well-defined series: Legal Case Files, Subject Files and Miscellany. The Legal Case Files consist of correspondence, briefs, motions, reports, compilations of laws and published articles regarding the California Tidelands Case (1941-1952), which was argued before the Supreme Court, the formulation of a United States Oil Policy during World War II, and the Anglo-Egyptian dispute (1947) concerning the purported violation of Egypt's sovereignty by Great Britain, which ultimately went before the United Nations Security Council. The Subject Files portion of the collection contains correspondence, memoranda, notes and official organizational reports regarding the publication of the seventh volume of International Legislation and the study of international law at the Naval War College. The third series, Miscellany, consists of career-related ephemera, including newspaper clippings, programs and photocopies of articles.
Official correspondence regarding naval career, 1920–1951; Personal correspondence, 1908–1971; Family correspondence, chiefly to his mother, 1914–1934; Miscellany, including photographs, diary, menus, booklets, newspaper clippings; Correspondence and travel writings of his mother Mrs. Katherine Scott Umsted, 1904–1934.
