Series V. RESEARCH MATERIALS, 1940-2007 (#45.11-58.8, 60CB.1-61CB.1)

Scope and Contents

Series V, RESEARCH MATERIALS, 1940-2007 (#45.11-58.8, 60CB.1-61CB.1), includes notes, transcribed and photocopied primary source material, articles, clippings, etc., which Lerner used in her teaching, writing, and lectures. Folder dates reflect when the files were created, not the dates of source materials, some of which date to the mid-1800s and earlier. Some files appear to have been started as part of Lerner's work on specific books, but were maintained past publication of the works and were likely used in other projects. Files are arranged alphabetically.
