Extent.5 linear feet (1 box)
Herbert Carey gave the collection to Professor Sharon Hartman Strom, who used the materials during her research for her book, Beyond the Typewriter : Gender, Class, and the Origins of Modern American Office Work, 1900-1930 (Urbana : University of Illinois Press, c1992.) The papers include a September 11, 1990 letter from Herbert Carey to Sharon Hartman Strom. Carey discussed his memories of his work experience at Western Electric Company and his involvement in the personnel and human resources management field.
Carey contributed to the development of the field of personnel management during his career. He published an article entitled “Consultative Supervision” in the United States Chamber of Commerce magazine Nation’s Business in April 1937 (Volume 25, Issue 4, p. 44). This was followed in 1942 by “Consultative Supervision and Management” in Personnel, a publication of the American Management Association.
