He has also written a number of award-winning books and contributed articles and reviews to numerous magazines and journals. Navasky is Professor of Journalism and Director of the George Delacorte Center for Magazine Journalism at Columbia University and serves as Chairman of the  Columbia Journalism Review. The collection provides a broad view of Victor Navasky's life, his interests, and his work. It contains many items of a personal nature such as school and military records, family correspondence, and photographs.
