Scope and Content of Collection

The papers document the career of economist William John Fellner through correspondence, speeches and writings, conference papers, reports, studies, testimony, charts, and statistics related to economic conditions and governmental economic policy in the United States, and laissez-faire economic theory, including questions of unemployment, inflation, and monetary policy.
Feller immigrated to the United States in 1938, joining the economics faculty at the University of California, Berkeley. He was a professor at Yale University from 1952 to 1973, after which he became a member of the Council of Economic Advisors. The Biographical file includes material from Fellner's memorial service, as well as his Festschrift.
The Correspondence contains Fellner's letters to and from economists, including scholars associated with the American Enterprise Institute, such as Phillip Cagan and Gottfried Haberler. These files often contain preliminary drafts of scholarly papers sent as enclosures.
Fellner wrote about a variety of topics in economics, including inflation, full employment, balance of payments, oligopoly, and tax indexing. The Speeches and writings include typescripts of Fellner's last published book, Towards a Reconstruction of Macroeconomics, as well as typescripts and proofs of his scholarly articles.
Fellner was a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, where he directed the Contemporary Economic Problems project to publish annual volumes on topics in economics. The American Enterprise Institute file includes correspondence and papers submitted to the Contemporary Economic Problems project, as well as a transcript of a presentation given by Friedrich August von Hayek in 1975.
After retiring from his professorial work, Fellner was involved in several economics organizations and boards. The Subject file contains correspondence, memoranda, and conference papers related to groups such as the Brookings Panel on Economic Activity, the Congressional Budget Office, the Council of Economic Advisors, and the Gold Commission.
A significant portion of the collection contains Writings by others, mainly in the form of conference papers or preliminary drafts send to Fellner by other economists.
The collection includes Sound recordings of the Public Policy Forums program. In a recording from 1977, Henry Aaron and Rudolph Penner discuss ways to avoid bankruptcy of the Social Security program. A recording from 1982 contains an economic policy discussion with Phillip Cagan, William Fellner, Rudolph Penner, and Herbert Stein.
