The collection includes arbitration files of Eliel's work as well as files of many other arbitrators, particularly those of
Paul Sinsheimer. Documents from these arbitrations cover the years 1917 to 1949. Many of the arbitrated disputes included
strikes so there is material in the series on strikes which deals with some of the same events. Both series have a significant
number of cases from the maritime industry. Other series dealing with maritime labor relations are Series IV: Employer Associations
which contains material on the Industrial Association of San Francisco and the Waterfront Employers Association.
These records represent the diverse interests of the Institute of Industrial Relations and include arbitrations, records of
employer associations, union publications, and a series of pamphlets from the Institute for Science and Labour in Japan. Many
documents are stamped "Division of Industrial Relations, Graduate School of Business" (Stanford University). Paul Eliel was
its director from 1936 until 1947 and his career is documented in these files.
