Abstract:

The papers of Tibor Scitovsky, Hungarian-born economist, date from 1910-2002, with the majority of the materials dating from the 1970s through 2002. The Correspondence, Financial and Personal Materials Series consists primarily of routine professional correspondence to Scitovsky from academic institutions, publishers, colleagues, and friends. Many concern publications or invitations to events. There are a number of brief but interesting exchanges with other economists, including Moses Abramovitz of Stanford, Benjamin M. Friedman of Harvard, Paul Samuelson of MIT, Stanley K. Sheinbaum of Stanford, and Robert Solow, also at MIT.

The Writings and Speeches Series highlights materials on selected writings and themes that Scitovsky worked on in later years, from the 1980s to 2002, and includes clippings, drafts, articles, and numerous notes. Major academic works represented in this series include The Joyless Economy and articles on market economies, inflation, growth and stagnation, consumer satisfaction (and dissatisfaction), marketing, affluence, and violence and boredom as social ills. Many of his other major works and earlier research are not represented by these research materials. A series of photographs of Scitovky's family and home serve as companions to his unpublished memoirs, which detail life in northern Hungary for a family of nobility, as well as historical events in Hungary, France, and England, particularly before and during World War II. The memoirs also offer a detailed narrative of Scivovsky's emigration from Hungary to the United States in the 1940s, as well as an account of the student protests in Paris in the 1960s. The Printed Materials Series contains many of Scitovsky's reprinted articles and may prove to be the most useful series for researchers interested in his works.
