Collection Description & Creator Information
The Norman Ryder Papers consists of notes, draft publications, correspondence, and administrative papers from Ryder's professional life.
This collection documents the breadth of Ryder's professional career, with a special focus on the cohort research process he developed, which led to the publication of his many articles and book chapters. Notes, drafts, and published works make up the bulk of the collection, but there are also files containing personal and professional correspondence, and a small number of teaching materials.
The collection strengths are its documentation of the fields of demography and human fertility.
