Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The collection documents Alan Krueger's tenure as Chairman of the Council on Economic Advisers from November 2011 to August 2013. It contains Kruger's memoranda to Barack Obama, primarily in the form of monthly economic briefings, and Krueger's speeches given at various events. To a lesser extent, the collection includes Kruger's subject files on topics such as "academic economics," energy, fiscal policy, and labor. Also present are pictures of Krueger taken by the White House photographer and others, including Krueger's personal collection of digitized photographs of himself with President Obama in both formal and informal settings.

Collection History

Custodial History:

The digital files in this collection were collected from Alan Krueger by Sean Vanatta, a PhD student in Princeton University's Department of History, who consulted the files in preparation for a series of interviews he conducted with Krueger. Mr. Vanatta created an organizational structure for the files prior to their acquisition by the Mudd Library.

Archival Appraisal Information:

Audio files of interviews with Krueger and partial transcripts of these interviews were removed from the collection at the request of Professor Krueger. Personal materials unrelated to his professional career were also removed.
