Scope and Contents of the Materials

The collection consists primarily of Ralph Price’s professional correspondence. The collection features letters exchanged between Price and WMC faculty and administration, editors, professional contacts, and national politicians. The letters deal primarily with college policies, economic theories, and critiques of scholarly publications. Also included are letters of a more personal nature, including correspondence from past students detailing their personal lives and academic successes.

The collection also contains correspondence and information regarding Price’s time as a visiting professor in India and Singapore. Additionally, drafts of Price’s speeches and scholarly publications are included.

Upon arrival, the papers were contained in one box and divided into folders that were arranged categorically. Within each folder, the papers were primarily arranged in a reverse chronological order. However, many of the papers were out of place and, as a result, many of the folders had to be reclassified. After intake, the papers were ordered by subject and then by chronology.
