Subseries VII.1: About, 1947-2002

Items in this subseries pertain to articles and books written about Merton throughout the course of his career. Also included are works such as cartoons, caricatures, and dedications to Merton, indicating his wide-reaching influence on others. Records consist of copies of articles, often with Merton's own annotations, correspondence with authors, and responses from colleagues and the general public. Oftentimes the items are edited by Merton or include his reactions to the material. Of interest is the lengthy correspondence between Merton and Charles Crothers, who wrote a biography on Merton's life and work. Merton compiled a good deal of early original correspondence depicting his work and influences and sent copies to Crothers. The compiled items are included here. Subseries VII.1 begins with a general section and is then organized alphabetically by title of work.

Subseries VII.2: Articles By, 1931-2002

This subseries, related to articles written by Merton, is organized into the following sections: administrative; book reviews; chronologically organized published articles; and unpublished or unidentified materials. Highlights of the administrative correspondence include details pertaining to Merton's contributions to the Bobbs-Merrill Company reprint series and items depicting F.A. Davis Company's interest in compiling Merton's papers on the subject of nursing into a volume for publication. Book review items include reviews written by Merton, as well as related correspondence and drafts. Records pertaining to articles written by Merton mainly consist of offprints and occasionally include correspondence, original drafts, and research material. Of interest is information related to Merton's article "Notes on Sociology in the U.S.S.R." This material chronicles a trip Merton and several prominent social scientists took to the region in the early 1960s, under sponsorship from the National Academy of Science. During this excursion, Merton formed ties with many Russian social scientists and these relationships are conveyed through the correspondence and topical information represented in this portion of the collection. Unidentified material may potentially include items that are not written by Merton.

Subseries VII.3: Books By, 1933-2002

Subseries VII.3 is arranged into three sections: general records; chronologically by publication date; and unidentified or unpublished material. General material pertains to several publications and therefore is not filed with one particular title. These files are typically administrative in nature. Records related to published books include correspondence, contracts with publishers and contributors, reviews, notes, research, and original drafts. Material in this subseries portrays Merton's meticulous research habits and depicts his particular writing methods.

Of interest is material related toThe Travels and Adventures of Serendipity.Merton and Elinor Barber began research on the word serendipity in the 1950s. The project lay dormant for several decades and discussion of publication was revived in the 1990s. The records in this subseries trace the work's progression up through eventual publication plans. As part of their initial research efforts, Merton and Barber asked colleagues to contribute their thoughts and ideas about the term serendipity. These responses, as well as articles written about the term, are located in the alphabetical research section. This section is alphabetized by contributor or author's last name. Also of note is material regarding Merton's earliest published book,Science, Technology and Society in Seventeenth Century England,which includes correspondence with Pitirim Sorokin. The subseries also contains original drafts and corrections for one of Merton's most well known and well received books,On the Shoulders of Giants.

All items pertaining toPatterns of Social Life: Explorations in the Sociology of Housingare located in Series VI.

Subseries VII.4: Edits for Others, 1942-1999

Merton proclaimed he possessed "a lifelong addiction to editing." This sentiment is reflected in the considerable amount of editorial material comprising Subseries VII.4. The subseries includes draft copies of a wide variety of works, along with Merton's extensive edits and comments. In some cases, Merton drafted separate documents to comment on manuscripts and essays of others, which are present here. The series also contains correspondence and editing requests. Records are arranged alphabetically by author's last name or occasionally by title of work. Merton also compiled records topically, which are filed alphabetically throughout.
