O'Connor's writing career lasted an impressive 50 years, during which time he became known as the Dean of outdoor writers. The OConnor-Jobson correspondence lasted for 16 of those years and almost 300 letters were written. This must be the most impressive archive of OConnor material to surface. These letters contain much information on guns, especially the .270, a lot on reloading, opinions on other writers and participants in the outdoor industry, his salary, the good and bad things about writing books, prices he paid and received for certain rifles and even details of his contracts.
