Subseries IV.2: Affiliations, 1943-2001

Merton maintained connections with a wide variety of professional organizations, foundations, councils, centers, and universities outside of Columbia University. This subseries depicts Merton's affiliations and interests as he served in a variety of capacities, from board and committee member, to trustee and advisor. Merton's service on numerous editorial boards for prominent scholarly journals and encyclopedias is also reflected in these records. Items in this subseries include meeting agenda, reports, correspondence, and occasional photographs documenting events. The records provide insight into the origin and history of certain organizations, most notably the Society for Social Studies of Science and the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. Because this subseries conforms to Merton's original arrangement, items pertaining to Subseries IV.1 and Subseries IV.3 may occasionally be found here.

Subseries IV.4: Columbia University, 1940-2001

This subseries portrays Merton's faculty affiliation with Columbia University through records related to public lectures, conference and event attendance, departmental involvement, awards, and service on numerous committees. Prominent in this subseries is material detailing Merton's extensive involvement with the Paul F. Lazarsfeld Center for the Social Sciences, a direct descendent of the Bureau of Applied Social Research and the Center for Social Sciences. Merton grouped all material related to Lazarsfeld in this section. Items include original correspondence with Lazarsfeld, material pertaining to Lazarsfeld's life and work, and records related to the creation of the bookQualitative and Quantitative Research: Papers in Honor of Paul F. Lazarsfeld,of which Merton was a contributing editor. The Paul F. Lazarsfeld items in boxes #444-448 were compiled by Merton and contain general musings, notes, and recollections about Lazarsfeld using a variety of themes. It appears that Merton compiled this material in preparation for a talk at the Paul F. Lazarsfeld Colloquium at the Sorbonne in 1994. Also present in this subseries are Merton's Sociology Department administrative files. These files characterize the operations of the department, particularly during the 1970s and 1980s, and Merton's involvement and thoughts regarding departmental procedures and decisions. Topics include faculty, courses, committees, fellowships, and visiting professors.
