My Archives

Every day I get at least one or two requests from readers asking for help to find something I wrote on NRO. If I know exactly what they’re looking for I try to help, but sometimes the request is very vague; “you wrote a column in which you mentioned Orwell or maybe Orson Welles….” etc. I have no better idea about which column the reader is referring to than they do. My best advice is to use Google. Type my name and whatever keywords you can think of and you’ll usually find what you’re looking for. Also, the visibly accessible archive for the G-File doesn’t go back very far these days (though I’m told that’s not a permanent state). But Google should be able to get to them. If none of that works, please feel free to ask for help. But if you’ve already tried Google, odds are I won’t be able to help much.
