Abstract:

The papers deal primarily with Pratt's educational philanthropy especially for medical and scientific research at Johns Hopkins' McCollum Pratt Institute and the science departments at the University of Virginia. In addition there are papers relating to his interest in radio astronomy work in Australia, The Brookings Institute, and agricultural research at Rutgers. Considerable correspondence is generated by his interest in gingko trees and his crops and livestock at Sherwood Forest farm, Fredericksburg, Va.

Pratt's services in World War II are documented by routine correspondence and reports as senior consultant for Lend-Lease, and as a member of the Foreign Economic Administration, the Office of Production Management, and the War Resources Board. Of interest are drafts of the Industrial Moblization Plan and his 1944 diary of the London mission of Edward Stettinius, Under Secretary of State.

A final segment is concerned with general fund raising at the University of Virginia, especially as a member of the Alemni Board of Trustees of the University of Virginia Endowment fund. With the papers is a bronze head of Edgar Allan Poe, a 1963 award of the Raven Society.
