Series 1: Administrative, 1936-1966
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Department of Near Eastern Studies Records consist primarily of records dating from the departments existance as the Department of Oriental Studies. Included are correspondence, memoranda, printed materials, course syllabi, and other materials which document the activities of the department which is the forbearer to both the Department of Near Eastern Studies and the Department of East Asian Studies. Though the material covers nearly the entire span of the Department, it is particularly strong in its coverage of the late 1950s and early 1960s, when the Department was under the chairmanship of T. Cuyler Young. The Department's sponsorship and hosting of academic conferences and its summer seminar program are also well represented.
Please see series descriptions in contents list for additional information about individual series.
The Administrative series has been arranged into three groupings by form, correspondence, conference materials, and subject files. Correspondence appears first and is arranged chronologically with the exception of the correspondence of Philip K. Hitti, which is filed separately. Records pertaining to conferences are grouped together by conference. Subject files are arranged alphabetically with general files on miscellaneous topics appearing at the beginning of the run.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
Appraisal has been conducted in accordance with Mudd Library guidelines. In processing this collection many duplicate copies of undistributed conference programs, as well as two editions of the Princeton University Alumni catalogue were removed and discarded.
