Part of the Archival Insights into the Evolution of Economics book series (AIEE)


In 1985 the Duke University Manuscript Department, in conjunction with the Department of Economics, began an Economists’ Papers Project aimed at preserving the correspondence, writings, and related papers of a number of distinguished economists. These papers contain a treasure trove of useful information, particularly on the development of post-war economic theory.
