Herbert Wechsler Papers, 1919-2000, bulk 1932-1995

Series V: Teaching and University Work, 1934-1987

Series V: Teaching and University Work (6 boxes, 3 linear feet). This series contains papers related to Wechsler's work as a professor and is split into two sub-series. A large portion of the series consists of the records of interaction with the faculty and various faculty initiatives within Columbia's Law School. Some of the material concerns the student unrest Columbia experienced in 1968 and the Faculty reaction and involvement, particularly at the Law School. A small portion of material deals with discussions on teaching methods.
