|RESEARCH PAPERS & CORRESPONDENCE|
This portion of the collection contains information pertaining to Hamilton's life, academic career, and research. Among the items contained in the biographical files are his curriculum vita, a list of publications, and reprints of many of his journal articles, including "Use and Misuse of Price History," "The Foundation of the Bank of Spain," and "The First Twenty Years of the Bank of Spain."
Hamilton's course syllabi, grade books, and academic correspondence fills about three boxes of the collection. Another two boxes hold notes, papers, and transcriptions of primary sources related to his many journal articles. A complete list of Hamilton's writings is filed with his CV. Major titles are:
American Treasure and the Rise of Capitalism (1929)
Spanish Mercantilism Before 1700 (1932)
Prices, Wages and the Industrial Revolution (1935)
Price and Progress (1952)
Economic Origin of the Monroe Doctrine (1962)
Many of Hamilton's research notes took the form of indexed card files, and there are four boxes of these materials pertaining to his work on Spanish mercantilism, the Monroe Doctrine, and the Bank of Spain. Often the cards consist of handwritten transcriptions of primary documents from Spanish archives. Materials on the Bank of Spain are divided into chapters, apparently for a book that Hamilton never completed.
NOTE: This collection contains photostats of materials which belong to other archives. Please consult collections staff for regulations on making photocopies.
