Sinclair Kennedy (1875-1947) was born in Roxbury, MA to George Golding Kennedy and Harriet White (Harris) Kennedy. In 1897 he graduated from Harvard College and in 1906 from Harvard Law School. A man of private means, he spent his life traveling,
writing, and lecturing. He advocated including the USA in a federation of the English-speaking
world, and in 1914 published The Pan-Angles: A Consideration of the Federation of the Seven English-Speaking Nations
, which was well-reviewed in the political science literature at the time, and well
known in international politics circles. He later wrote Why Federate? on the same topic.

The papers of Sinclair Kennedy span the years from 1905 through 1946, with the bulk
of the material being from the years of World War II, 1941-1945, and a smaller grouping
from the 1930s. The largest part of the materials is the correspondence, which falls
into two main groups:
a) Personal or institutional correspondence – Letters to and from family members or
friends. Correspondence with both these groups tends to be political in nature, often
having to do with international politics and Kennedy's belief that the English-speaking
nations should band together. The friends include citizens of other English-speaking
countries: Newfoundland (which was separate from Canada until 1949), New Zealand,
Australia, and Great Britain.
b) Subject correspondence files – Letters to and from government or media bodies,
mostly impersonal. There are two sets of topics: wartime issues, which include wartime
conservation, nutrition for servicemen, etc.; and correspondence regarding Kennedy's
writings The Pan-Angles and Why Federate?
Nearly every correspondence file has a clippings file associated with it. Kennedy
seems to have subscribed to a clippings service, which would collect and date stamp
newspaper articles about the topics that interested him.
Kennedy's writings include mostly typewritten entries to the Circular Quarterly, apparently
a newsletter his college friends put together to keep up with each other's lives.
They are dated approximately every three months from 1917 through 1945, though tapering
off in the later years. They describe Kennedy's daily life and travels much more fully
than his correspondence does.
Other writings include drafts of a play titled "As We Will," a vision of a meeting
between Hitler and Mussolini in 1938, and several open letters about English-speaking
federation or wartime issues which he wrote during the First World War.
