    Scope and Contents note

    Consisting of correspondence, speeches and writings, writings by others, publications, photographs, and slides related to economic theory, and especially to laissez-faire economics, the Haberler papers are comprised of three increments of materials; the third and final increment received in 1995 after Haberler’s death. Although the three increments were received separately, there is considerable overlap between them in terms of the types of materials they contain and the themes or individuals represented in them.
    The first increment (box 1-57) is comprised of correspondence, speeches and writings, writings by others, and biographical materials. The correspondence is arranged chronologically, alphabetically, and thematically.
    The second increment (box 58-67) is comprised of biographical materials, correspondence, speeches and writings, writings by others, printed matter, and materials related to various conferences attended by Haberler. The Biographical File of the second increment includes curriculum vitae, speeches and articles related to Haberler’s life, and interviews. The Correspondence series of the second increment is arranged alphabetically, and contains correspondence between Haberler and other economists dating from the later part of his career (1971-1991).
    The Speeches and Writings series of the second increment is comprised of various drafts of articles and books written by Haberler, as well as correspondence related to the publishing of those works. The Writings by Others series contains published copies and unpublished drafts of articles written by other contemporary economists. The Printed Matter series of the second increment is comprised of various political and economic publications including newsletters, magazines, government reports, and clippings.
    The third increment (box 68-110) is comprised of biographical materials, correspondence, speeches and writings, writings by others, printed matter, photographs, and slides. The Biographical File of the third increment is comprised of expired passports, articles and speeches related to Haberler’s life, as well as address and telephone directories. The Correspondence series of the third increment is arranged alphabetically and contains correspondence between Haberler and other economists dating primarily from the early part of his career from the 1920s to the 1940s. Notable among these are considerable collections of correspondence between Haberler and Hayek, Machlup, Friedman, and Keynes discussing economic issues and conferences. Also included in this series, is a substantial collection of correspondence between Haberler and his parents dating from the 1920s discussing Haberler’s travel throughout America and Europe during his time as a Rockefeller Scholar.
    The Writings by Others series of the third increment contains published copies and unpublished drafts of articles written by other contemporary economists. The Printed Matter series of the third increment contains various publications including newsletters and magazines published by the American Enterprise Institute, the von Mises Institute and the Cato Institute.
    The Photographs series of the third increment contains photographs taken at various conferences and meetings attended by Haberler as well as a large collection of personal photographs and slides taken on vacation in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the United States.
