Series 4: Research Files, 1881-1978
Collection Description & Creator Information
Viner's papers document his scholarship, as well as his government service, and include correspondence, manuscripts, reports, and research materials. The correspondence file spans his career and contains correspondence with many prominent economists.
Please see the series descriptions in the contents list for additional information about individual series.
Arranged numerically by filing group. Within each filing group, materials are arranged alphabetically by subject or author. The filing groups preserve the original order of the papers, which were arranged in several alphabetical groups by Viner, although the purpose for the different groups is not readily apparent. Filing group 3 is not in alphabetical order, but is instead left in the order in which it was received to preserve context. The last group, General, was created by the archivists from material found throughout the collection that was similar to the papers already located in this series.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
The materials separated from this collection include student term papers, grades and letters of recommendation, personal papers, and duplicate materials. Publications have been removed to be cataloged separately.
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.
