Abstract:

The Kenneth J. Arrow Papers (33,300 items, 55.5 linear feet; dated 1939-1995, bulk [1980s]-1995) document primarily the latter part of his career as an economist, professor, and Nobel Laureate. The collection provides a broad overview of his many professional activities; administrative activities for various associations and committees and for his universities; and political activism in research notes, draft papers and speeches, and correspondence. Arrow's career is especially distinguished by his contributions to the theory of social choice, including his book Social Choice and Individual Values, published in 1951, and his contributions to general equilibrium theory. For these achievements, Professor Arrow has been awarded the Johns Bates Clark Medal (1957) and the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics (1972), which he shared with Professor Sir John Hicks.

With an eleven year interruption at Harvard University from 1968 to 1979, Professor Arrow has spent the largest portion of his career at Stanford University. He has served as president of the American Economics Association and the International Economics Association, and has also been a member of the National Academy of Sciences. Some of the larger and more salient files in the collection include research notes on general equilibrium theory in economics; consulting on global climate change and contingent valuation; correspondence with Frank Hahn, Leonid Hurwicz, Alain Lewis, and Lionel McKenzie; and notes from graduate courses with Harold Hotelling. Although the collection contains primarily professional papers, there are some personal files as well as some concerning politics and activism.

The addition (1998-0297) (1,500 items, 2.0 linear ft.; dated 1989-1997) consists of office files, chiefly correspondence and memoranda, the bulk of which document Arrow's involvement in public and academic affairs as well as economics. This addition is unprocessed.
