Collection History


Duplicate materials, student papers and recommendations, personal financial papers, blueprints of Kemmerer's properties, and wall charts illustrating general financial and economic concepts for use in the classroom were separated from this collection. Maps were transferred to the Geosciences and Map Library at Princeton University.


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.

Processing Information

This collection was processed by Adriane Hanson, Jessie Thompson, and Melina Meneguin-Layerenza in 2007 and Helene van Rossum in November 2019, when materials in Series 7 were processed. Finding aid written by Adriane Hanson in August 2007.

For those few instances beyond fair use, researchers are responsible for determining who may hold the copyright and obtaining approval from them. Researchers do not need anything further from the Mudd Library to move forward with their use.
