The collection is divided into 3 series: “Harvard University Press: A History” Research Materials; Correspondence; and Harvard University Press Records. Materials in Series I were collected by Max Hall in preparing his “Harvard University Press: A History” (Cambridge and London, Harvard University Press, 1986). Annotated notes from Max Hall throughout the collection suggests that Hall may have organized the collection into its present order.
