The Writings series contains copies of Baker's speeches and articles, typically either offprints or photocopies of publications, with the majority written after his retirement from Bell Labs in 1980. Earlier writings, before 1955, were predominantly technical science papers related to his own chemistry research at Bell Labs. Beginning in 1955, his writings were concerned with the overall focus of Bell Lab's research, communications science and technology, the impact of science on business and government, government support for research, and general analyses on conducting scientific research. Beginning in the 1970s, he also frequently wrote about encouraging innovation in research, the role of science and technology in government and society, and the education system, especially in the sciences. After his retirement in 1980, in addition to continuing to write about these subjects, he also wrote about the future of technology and information systems. Baker also wrote about national materials policy periodically throughout his career.
