Series 1: Biographical, 1935-1994
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Ansley J. Coale Papers document Coale's professional activities as a faculty member of Princeton's Office of Population Research (OPR), including his work on the nuptiality, fertility, and mortality of populations around the world. The papers contain correspondence, Coale's research papers and projects, and samples of data collected. The material spans the several decades (1950s to 1990s) Coale spent as a member of the faculty, as well as work he did during his retirement. A portion of the collection includes material related to Frank Notestein, Coale's colleague and mentor, and the correspondence of three other OPR staff members.
Please see the series descriptions in the contents list for additional information about individual series.
