Subseries 1B: Departments, 1942-1972

Subseries 1B: Departments, 1942-1972 (bulk 1956-1972) contains correspondence with departmental chairs and others concerning the organization and functioning of individual departments, their programs, and research. The correspondence, which may be of a confidential nature, is supplemented by the confidential reports to the Presidents, to be found in Series 2E (Administrative–Office of the President). Reorganization is a recurring theme among the departmental correspondence, and researchers should be aware of mergers and separations of departments. Examples are the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and the Department of Economics and Sociology, which by the mid-sixties were reorganized into separate departments of Economy, Anthropology and Sociology. As a result, information on the 'Econometric Research Program" can be found under "Economics and Sociology" for the period 1957-1960 and under "Economics" for the period 1960-1970. Information about the internal structure of departments may be found in the Princeton University Catalogue.
