Warren Buffett, Benjamin Graham, Charlie Munger–Shareholder letters 1957-1970

Two years ago, Dan Grossman posted about the Warren Buffett shareholder letters on his (now defunct) blog.

Finally, I have copies of all of Buffett’’s annual reports from 1957-1970. They’’re spectacular; if you’’d like a copy, let me know and I’’ll send them to you. Unfortunately, I was asked not to post them publicly, though I’’m told that emailing is OK.

He’d received the letters from Brad Feld.

I commented on the post and Dan graciously shared the letters. I also checked the box to receive e-mail notifications of new comments on the thread. Today, two years later, I continue to receive notifications and direct e-mails from people looking for the letters. (Perfect example of the Long Tail at work.)

The letters clearly say it’s not okay to post them, but, like Dan, my understanding is it’s okay to e-mail them. Leave a comment on this post if you want a copy and I’ll email them to you… and thank-you comments are always appreciated. (If I’m in error posting them, just let me know.)

(Note: You can find PDF’s of the more recent letters (post 1977) here: http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/letters/letters.html, and the text of the 1969-1976 letters here: http://stableboyselections.com/2008/08/25/the-missing-berkshire-hathaway-letters-1969-1976/.)

I also have a copy of Charlie Munger’s speech entitled “Academic Economics: Strengths and Faults After Considering Interdisciplinary Needs” presented to the University of California, Santa Barbara Economics Department on October 3, 2003.

Update: These are the Warren Buffett partnership letters–not the Berkshire Hathaway letters form 1970 to 1979, or the Bluechip Stamps letters. I don’t have the Bluechip Stamps letters, and I’m not sure where to get them.

  8. Jeff,

    May I ask you to email a copy of Buffett’s annual reports from 1957-1970 and Munger’s speech from 2003 you reference? Also, the http://stableboyselections.com site apparently does not exist anymore. May I have the 1969-1976 letters if you have them? Thank you for keeping the snowball rolling!
