Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
The majority of the Writings series is composed of articles and speeches written by Spahr and includes copies of the articles or speeches, as well as related correspondence and event materials. In a few instances, folders only contain correspondence about a particular speech with no copy of the address itself. The subjects Spahr addressed in his writings include United States government fiscal policies and proposed bills, the gold standard, the value of the dollar, inflation, the monetary and economic situation of the United States, and business and employment. The series also contains bibliographies, newspaper columns by Spahr, reviews, and papers related to the Economists' National Committee on Monetary Policy.
Arranged alphabetically by document type. Articles and speeches are arranged chronologically.
The materials separated from this collection include duplicate materials, publications, and syllabi and reading lists from his New York University classes.
These papers were processed with the generous support of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission and the John Foster and Janet Avery Dulles Fund.
