Collection Overview

Chipman's papers consist of drafts, publications, lecture notes, correspondence, and other files documenting his scholarship, writings, and teachings at the University of Minnesota. Prominent themes include international trade, with extensive research on West Germany during the Cold War; linear programming; welfare economics; econometrics; the writings and impact of Vilfredo Pareto; and Chipman's collaboration and friendships with other economists.

The range of Chipman's research and writings are represented in the Writings Series, where files are arranged alphabetically by title. Files typically include drafts and published versions, usually offprints, as well as occasional correspondence and notes by Chipman documenting the development of the paper or essay.

The Name Files series includes a range of material (including correspondence, writings, notes, and subject files), arranged alphabetically by name, that document his professional relationships and communications with publishers, professional organizations, or other scholars, as well as his ongoing collaboration with other economists, including Leonid Hurwicz, James C. Moore, Tjalling Koopmans, Paul Samuelson, Eugen Slutsky, and Ragnar Frisch.

Finally, the Engagements series includes Chipman's lecture notes, exams, and reading lists from his years as a professor in the Economics Department, as well as event files from conferences, workshops, travels, awards, and other activities over the course of his career as an economist.
