Guide to the Robert W. Clower Papers, circa 1916-2000 and undated

Collection Overview

Most of the Clower papers are professional correspondence covering his entire professional career from 1949 to 1999. The professional correspondence includes recommendations for jobs, promotion and tenure letters, referee reports, invitations, a few clippings, and photographs. The collection also includes manuscript drafts and manuscript fragments of his writings and the writings of other colleagues; course materials, including lecture notes, syllabi, coursepaks, student papers, reading lists, exams, two cassettes, and course grades; printed materials such as articles, journals, and one bound typescript of a book.

Topics covered in the collection include monetary theory, price theory, price determination, disequilibrium, stock-flow analysis, Keynesian economics, macroeconomics, Say's Law, banking, mathematical economics, and the teaching of economics. The collection does not contain a complete set of drafts of Clower's writings. Many of the writings are untitled typescripts and fragments of notes; thus, the researcher may need to identify some writings.

The professional correspondence includes many prominent names of 20th century economics: Milton Friedman, John R. Hicks, Peter Howitt, Arjo Klamer, David Laidler, Axel Leijonhufvud, Don Patinkin, Joan Robinson, Paul Samuelson, and others. Duke University faculty are represented in the Clower papers by Craufurd Goodwin, Neil DeMarchi, and Roy Weintraub. Also included are:

Some writings included in the collection are:

There are several untitled typescripts and groups of notes on the following topics:

"The Keynesian Counter-Revolution: A Theoretical Appraisal" (1965), perhaps Clower's most influential paper, does not appear to be in the collection. Reprinted in his own collection of readings in Monetary Theory (1969), drafts of this paper may appear under a different title or in folders on monetary theory. The collection does include clearly labeled 1966 typescripts and notes for the book on monetary theory.

This unprocessed addition to the collection primarily includes professional correspondence and typescripts of several articles written by Clower. No container list was created. (1991-1998) (400 items) (.80 linear feet) (acc#1999-0352)

This unprocessed addition contains files relating to a 1979 antitrust suit (U.S. vs. Kerkorian), and professional correspondence with colleagues and students, primarily from 1999. No container list was created. (1979-1999) (250 items) (.4 linear feet) (acc#2000-0095)

This unprocessed addition to the collection includes primarily writings by Clower (circa 1600 items, 1952-2000 and undated). Includes copies of his 1952 thesis, copies of published articles and unpublished writings (especially from the 1950s), and lectures. A number of items were written with Peter Howitt of Ohio State University. Also included are a few items of correspondence; materials related to courses taught by Clower, including two electronic documents; a file of curriculum vitae and other biographical information, including one color photograph and two electronic image files; two copies of John Maynard Keynes's THE GENERAL THEORY OF EMPLOYMENT INTEREST AND MONEY annotated by Clower; and a few diplomas and awards. Several files of writings and speeches by Clower's father, the economist F. W. (Fay Walter) Clower, are also included (200 items, circa 1916-circa 1946). The electronic files have been migrated to the electronic records server. No container list for this addition has been created. (1916-2000) (1800 items) (3 linear feet) (acc#2001-0088)

Handwritten notes, typescripts, printed articles, and book drafts mostly by Clower and some by others. Note that some writings, particularly writings by others, are included in the Professional Correspondence series when journal articles or drafts of articles are attached to correspondence.

Many folders contain writings on various topics, in random order as originally received. Many of the writings are fragments, are untitled, or may have a different title in the draft stage than when published; therefore it is difficult to determine all the papers that are not represented in the collection. One of Professor Clower's most important essays, "The Keynesian Counter-Revolution: A Theoretical Appraisal" (1965), does not appear to be represented.

The Writings Series is organized by date of the earliest writing within the folder.

Processing Information

Processed by Kirk White

Completed June 25, 1999

Processing Note: The papers are organized roughly according to date. Many folders were received from Professor Clower with papers of wide-ranging dates in the same folder. For example, there is a folder with a paper from 1958 and another paper from 1976. In general, the Writings Series is ordered by the earliest date in each folder. For example, a folder with papers from 1958 to 1986 is placed between folders from 1957 and 1959. Many of the folders received from Professor Clower contained writings on widely divergent topics. For example, one folder contains a 1966 study of Liberian economy and a 1972 "Reflection on the Keynesian Perplex." In an attempt to preserve the integrity of folders received from Professor Clower, folders were not organized by topic, but only by date as described above.
