Population Index - Correspondence, 1937-1946
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Frank W. Notestein Papers document his position as a leader in the field of population and fertility research through his involvement at Princeton University as the Director of the Office of Population Research and as a faculty member (although the papers do not include substantial information on his classes or students), as well as through his work with the Population Council and the Population Association of America. It also documents his significant advisory role to both the United Nations and the United States Government. The Frank W. Notestein Papers include mostly typewritten letters and notes to and from Notestein, as well as some handwritten information, including demographic research, and typewritten and printed copies of papers and speeches. Dr. Ansely J. Coale, Notestein's successor at the OPR, also contributed significantly to this group of papers through his own correspondence and reports.
