Abstract:

Papers of a University of Wisconsin history professor (1942-1967) including correspondence, speeches, drafts and notes for publications, and other materials. Widely known for his publications, Curti won a Pulitzer Prize for "The Growth of American Thought" (1943). His study of Trempealeau County, Wisconsin, "The Making of an American Community" (1959) pioneered the use of statistical information in the writing of local history.

The collection's extensive alphabetical correspondence is both personal and professional. It consists primarily of letters from other historians and from Curti's students and includes exchanges with Charles Beard, Frederick Jackson Turner, Arthur Schlesinger, Sr., John Dewey, and Harry Elmer Barnes. Letters from Arthur Deerin Call and members of the Women's Interantional League for Peace and Freedom concern the American pacifist movement during World War I. Also documented is Curti's presidnecy of the Mississippi Valley Historical Association (1951-1952) and the American Historical Association (1953-1954) and his activities with the Social Science Research Council.

Of the files on Curti's publications, that on his Trempealeau County study is most complete, including manuscripts, correspondence, computer output, and research materials. Also well documented is "American Philanthropy Overseas; A History" (1962).
