Scope and Content Note
This collection reflects the academic career and public service in the United States of the notable Russian economist Paul
Haensel. As professor of economics at Northwestern University and Mary Washington College, he lectured and wrote widely on
topics of taxation, public finance and international economics. A significant amount of material in the collection details
his involvement in debates over taxation policy in the U.S. before and during World War II.
Also of interest are his short stories and novel of life in the Russia during and after the Revolution (Speeches and writings/"Top',"
"Zhizn' krutit," "Amerikanskaia duel'"). Many of his writings are brief newspaper notes, articles, or letters to the editor
on various subjects; these, along with his notes for speeches, are grouped together by physical form. Only more significant
speeches and writings have been given separate entries.
Detailed processing and preservation microfilming of these materials were made possible by a generous grant from the National
Endowment for the Humanities and by matching funds from the Hoover Institution and the Museum of Russian Culture. The grant
also provides depositing a microfilm copy in the Hoover Institution Archives. The original materials are held at the Museum
of Russian Culture, San Francisco, as its property. A transfer table of corresponding box and reel numbers is available at
the Hoover Institution Archives.
