Collection Overview

The papers of Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert M. Solow span the years 1951-2011 and document his professional, scholarly, and academic work. The majority of the collection consists of voluminous files of correspondence (1960-2011) with students, colleagues, and other economists, and it includes his reviews of papers by other scholars, referee reports, letters of recommendation articles for the public, professional correspondence as well as policy recommendations. The papers also contain lecture notes for courses Solow taught at MIT (1972-1996); published papers by Solow on macroeconomics, growth theory, linear programming, and other topics (1950-2011); and files from economic, academic, and governmental organizations in which he served, including the American Economics Association, the National Bureau of Economic Research, and the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. The published papers series also contains notes and rough drafts on topics such as econometrics, employment (specifically the theory of unemployment) and growth policies, macroeconomics, and the theory of capital. There is also some material on the Neo-classical Growth Model, also known as the Solow-Swan Growth Model (1956).

The largest series in the collection, the Correspondence Series is subdivided into three groups: Chronological Correspondence, Alphabetical Correspondence, and Recommendations. The first two consist of correspondence from students, colleagues, and collaborators, with some responses from Solow included. The exchanges include economists such as Kenneth Arrow, Olivier Blanchard, Alan Blinder, Partha Dasgupta, Frank Hahn, Paul Samuelson, and James Tobin. The alphabetical correspondence dating from 1951-1976, is similar in content to the chronological correspondence but smaller in size; it also contains more pieces related to organizations and businesses. The Alphabetical Correspondence (Recommendations) dating from 1971-1986, is the smallest of the three and consists of requests for and the subsequent letters of recommendation from Solow for either students or professional economists.

The Teaching Materials Series houses the teaching materials generated from Solow’s MIT economics courses (spanning an approximate 30 years of his 40 year MIT career) as well as the notes and materials used for lectures given at other forums and institutions. These materials consist of reading lists, syllabi, outlines, exams, problem sets and their solutions, homework, waivers, attendance rosters, assignments, spiral notebooks of economic equations, and personal preparatory notes handwritten by Solow.

Nearly all of Solow’s major publications and co-publications (see bibliography for the few exceptions) are found in the Published Papers and Writings Series. These include his Ph.D. thesis, speeches, lectures, invited lectures, panel discussions, op-ed pieces, journal articles, brochures, pamphlets, reviews of his works and his responses to the reviews, Congressional testimony, and memorial tributes, as well as the rough drafts and notes for these documents.

The Professional Service Series includes varied documents associated with the groups Robert Solow was either a member of, held a position in, wrote pieces for, or supported. Files contain correspondence, meeting minutes, proposals, reports, publications, votes, elections, and financial reports. The largest organizations represented in this series are the American Economic Association and the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton.

Four videos featuring Solow are collected in the Audio Visual Series. Materials date from 2003 to 2009. Within the series, one item is recorded on a VHS cassette and the rest are in DVD format.

Contents of the Collection

The Correspondence Series is the largest in the collection and is subdivided into three subseries. The Chronological Correspondence, dating from 1960 to 2011, is the largest of the three. It contains many files of personal and professional correspondence, including students and academics requesting comments on their work; conference and sabbatical invitations; letters asking for advice on economic problems from bank and federal officials; Christmas cards; congratulatory letters following his Nobel Prize; curriculum vitae and recommendation requests; thank you letters; and many more items. The Alphabetical Correspondence, dating from 1951-1976, is similar to the chronological correspondence in content. The first two subseries include Solow's exchanges with economists such as George Akerlof, Kenneth Arrow, Jagdish Bhagwati, Olivier Blanchard, Alan Blinder, Partha Dasgupta, Avinash Dixit, Frank Hahn, Robert Hall, Janos Kornai, Assar Lindbeck, Donald McCloskey, Ian McDonald, Luigi Pasinetti, Paul Samuelson, Vernon Smith, George Stigler, and James Tobin. The two subseries also include correspondence with politicians, like Daniel P. Moynihan and Joseph Biden, and with foundations, like Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The Alphabetical Correspondence (Recommendations), dating from 1971-1986, is the smallest of the three and is a compilation of requests for and the subsequent letters of recommendation for either students or professional economists searching for job positions and/or entry into graduate and post-graduate school. As noted above, letters of recommendation are also included in the subsection Chronological Correspondence. The Correspondence Series covers a wide range of topics related to the growth model, neo-classicism, Keynes and Keynesianism, the efficiency wage model, price expectations, the money-wage dynamics, environmental policies as well as the state of the U.S. economy, including the rising inflation of the 1970s. Given their breadth and their span in time, the exchanges with Partha Dasgupta and Frank Hahn give excellent overviews about Solow the economist as well as Solow the man.

Correspondence arranged by date. Notable economists or topics are mentioned below each year's entry. The final box in this series (107) is a half-size manuscript box.

Historical Note

Robert M. Solow is an American economist whose early work focused on statistics and econometrics, but gradually shifted to employment (specifically the theory of unemployment) and growth policies, macroeconomics, and theory of capital. Most recently his work has been on targets of opportunity and a collaborative effort with Frank Hahn focusing on macro-theory. He is perhaps best known for his work on the Neo-classical Growth Model, also known as the Solow-Swan Growth Model (1956).

Along with Paul Samuelson, he made up the core of the Massachussetts Institute of Technology Economics Department as Institute Professor Emeritus for over forty years. He has held several governmental positions, including Senior Economist for the Council of Economic Advisors (1961-1962), and was a member of the President's Commission on Income Maintenance (1968-1970). He served as president for both the American Economics Association and the Econometric Society, and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, a Fellow of the British Academy, and a former member of the National Science Board. He is currently serving as Foundation Fellow at the Russell Sage Foundation.
