Series I: Correspondence

Series I consists primarily of letters written to John Bates Clark over the course of his professional life, and is generally arranged in alphabetical order by sender. The major exception to this pattern is that letters of condolence sent to John Bates Clark's wife, Myra Almeda Smith Clark, and sons, John Maurice and Alden Hyde Clark upon John Bates Clark's death are arranged at the end of the series. Further correspondence of this nature can be found in the John Bates Clark Memorial Scrapbook, which is located in Series IV, Subseries 2. Please note that in addition to letters written to John Bates and Myra Clark, Series I also includes a substantial number of letters written by them to others.

Befitting a public academic of Clark's stature, the correspondents represented in Series I embody a litany of prominent academics and public figures. These include Henry Carter Adams, Edward Bellamy, Nicholas Murray Butler, Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk, Joseph Dorfman, Richard T. Ely, Robert Erskine Ely, Franklin H. Giddings, Alvin S. Johnson, Henry L. Moore, Robert Henry Inglis Palgrave, Simon N. Patten, Baron Yoshiro Sakatani, Joseph Schumpeter, Edwin R.A. Seligman, James T. Shotwell, Ida Tarbell, Frank Taussig, Francis Amasa Walker, and Woodrow Wilson, among others. In addition, there is a large volume of correspondence between John Bates Clark and various family members, including Myra Clark, his daughter Helen Converse Clark Lancaster, and his sister Elizabeth "Lillie" Huntington Clark Lyman.

Series II: Unpublished Scholarly Materials, circa

Series II provides a view into the life of John Bates Clark as a student, teacher, theorist, and public figure. Consisting in overwhelming proportion of hand-written notes from Clark's college years to his death, this series represents more than sixty years of academic production from Clark. It ranges from written lectures prepared for formal courses to notes and thoughts which Clark literally scribbled on the backs of envelopes.

Subseries II.1: Lecture Notes--Series, 1895-1923

This subseries contains groups of lectures and lecture notes which were given as parts of courses or series. They consist primarily of lectures given at Smith College, Carleton College, and Columbia University. The folder titles given to them follow in most cases from those given by John Bates Clark.

Subseries II.3: General Notes, circa 1865-circa, 1935

This subseries contains three main areas of notes that John Bates Clark took as both a student and professional economist. The first consists of notes and notebooks which appear to have been from Clark's student days, including notes for several classes taken at university in Germany. Following this group are the few works by other economists that Clark annotated and which have survived as part of this collection. The most substantial part of this subseries is the collection of loose notes and newspaper clippings which have been organized according to their primary subject of interest. Most of the clippings but few of the notes bear dates.

This subseries represents the large volume of published articles written by John Bates Clark that are in the collection. It begins with a small selection of individually-bound works and a complete bibliography of John Bates Clark's published work. With those few exceptions, the bulk of the material in this subseries survived in the form of scrapbooks of unknown origin. While the scrapbooks have been disassembled for preservation purposes, the material they contained has remained cohesive and in the original numbered order. Each scrapbook contains a table of contents, and a master index and bibliography for the seven numbered scrapbooks appears before Scrapbook One.

Subseries IV.2: Materials Concerning the Death of John Bates Clark,, 1938-1957

This subseries contains several areas of interest. The first is a collection of obituaries and memorials to John Bates Clark. Next are documents related to the publication ofJohn Bates Clark: A Memorial(1938). This small book was written and published by the children of John Bates Clark after his death, and a copy of the book appears in this series. The third component of this subseries is a memorial scrapbook of unknown origin (though it was likely assembled by Myra Almeda Smith Clark shortly after her husband's death), which has been disassembled for preservation purposes. The order of the items from the scrapbook (including general papers, obituaries, and correspondence) has been retained, as has the cover. Please note that additional correspondence concerning John Bates Clark's death can be found in Series I. Finally, this subseries contains a few individual items related to John Bates Clark's death and legacy, most notably a copy of the program from his memorial service at St. Paul's Chapel on the campus of Columbia University.
