Collection History

Douglas Brown related to the Social Security Board and the Committee on Firestone Library Dedication, subject headings lists of the Industrial Relations Library, and papers of Frederick H. Harbison related to Princeton University fundraising have been transferred to appropriate collections within the Mudd Manuscript Library.


Digitization of the Industrial Relations Section Records was provided by the generous support of the Industrial Relations Section at Princeton University.
