Collection Overview

The collection includes Klein's correspondence, writings and drafts, economic research and subject files, organizational papers, and dissertations from Klein's many students. It contains significant amount of material from Project LINK, particularly from the late 1960s. Audiovisual recordings of the first LINK conference in 1969 will require reformatting prior to use. Also included are files from Klein's presidency of the National Academy of Science, his professorship at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, and printouts from early economic computer programs and experiments.

The Dissertations series includes copies and drafts of dissertations and theses written by Klein's students and advisees during his tenure at the University of Pennsylvania. They are arranged in alphabetical order by the author's name.

The Subjects, Organizations, and Research series includes subject files and materials on various publications, research topics, projects, and organizations with which Klein worked. This series includes many materials from his career at the University of Pennsylvania, including teaching materials and committee information, as well as his presidency of the National Academy of Sciences. It has been arranged alphabetically by folder title.

The Project LINK series contains records related to that project, for which Klein served as principal investigator along with Bert Hickman, Rudolf Rhomberg, and Aaron Gordon. Included are materials from various meetings, research materials, and reports.

The Computer Printouts series contains computer printouts from an unknown project, possibly Project LINK, dating from the early 1980s.

The Correspondence series contains letters, memos, and faxes received or written by Klein. Much of the correspondence was exchanged with colleagues in the field of economics, and reflects collaborative research endeavors. Arranged loosely by correspondent within each year. Not every year has incoming correspondence.

Writings by Klein includes papers and speeches written by Lawrence Klein for journals, newspapers, editorials, and congressional testimony.

Writings by Others includes non-dissertation writings on economics collected by Klein for his own research or interest.

Audiovisual Materials contains audio recordings of the first worldwide Project LINK conference in 1969. This material will need to be reformatted prior to use.

Historical Note

Lawrence Robert Klein (1920-2013) was an American economist born in Omaha, Nebraska. He died at age 93 on October 20, 2013 in Galdwyne, Pennsylvania. Much of his work involved building macroeconometric models for economic forecasting. He earned his undergraduate degree at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1942, and studied under economist Paul Samuelson at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), completing his Ph.D. in 1944. In November 1944, Klein was recruited at the Cowles Commission as research associate to work on the construction of a macroeconometric model of the US economy. In the following years, he worked at the National Bureau of Economic Research, the Survey Research Center of the University of Michigan, and the Institute of Statistics at the University of Oxford, before accepting a position at the University of Pennsylvania in 1958. In 1968, he became the Benjamin Franklin Professor of Economics and Finance at the Wharton School. Klein received the John Bates Clark Medal in 1959, while, in 1980, he was awarded the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.

With the purpose of providing a scientific tool for policy analysis and economic planning, Klein led and participated in various projects to build large-scale macroeconometric models in several countries. Some of these important projects were the Wharton School models, the SSRC-Brookings model, and the multinational Project LINK. Throughout his life, Klein also built a vast international network of collaborators, visiting and working with economists from all around the world since the late 1940s. In these early years Klein went several times to Norway, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, where he met with Ragnar Frisch, Jan Tinbergen, and Richard Stone among many others. Later on, during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, Klein continued his international activity, visiting not only European countries, but also establishing important relations with economists in Japan, China, Australia, Israel, and Mexico among other countries. Klein’s earlier enthusiasm about Marxist theory was later reflected in his special interest on the possibilities of building large-scale macroeconometric models of Soviet countries. He and his wife, Sonia, had four children.
