Balliol College, Oxford and Chatham House hold some papers and correspondence.

The Edward C Carter papers at the Columbia University Libraries Archival Collections contain correspondence with Toynbee. That may mean letters to and from, as it appears to mean in the National Register list.

The School of Slavonic and East European Studies Library, University College London, holds RW Seton-Watson’s correspondence with Toynbee from 1917 to 1951. The Seton-Watson papers also contain material on the Foreign Research and Press Service, which Toynbee ran from 1939 to 1943.

The Archives of the LSE Library hold Martin Wight’s correspondence with Toynbee.

There will be material in other collections.

It isn’t clear whether some of the institutions William McNeill thanks in his Arnold J. Toynbee, A Life, New York, OUP, 1989 held papers or merely provided him with a base for general research, but he mentions the archives of Time, Inc in New York and writings by Toynbee lodged at the Nihon University Library in Tokyo.

I refer to sound and film archive material here.
