Biographical / Historical
In 1950, Arthur H. Cole, Executive Director of the Harvard University Research Center in Entrepreneurial History and the Librarian of Baker Library, Harvard Business School (HBS), invited Redlich to be a senior associate at the Research Center where he stayed until 1958. Fritz Redlich’s research focused on economic history, but also included military, labor, and social history (such as his study, The German Military Enterpriser and His Workforce, 1964). Redlich used the Kress Collections in Economic History and Philosophy at Baker Library extensively for his research and publications. In addition he offered advice on book purchasing and promoted the Kress Collection. Redlich died on October 21, 1978.
