Collection Overview

The Roy Radner Papers contain 6 series. The series "Writings" (1951-2013) includes Radner's published and unpublished papers, with various materials related to them (e.g., correspondence with editors and colleagues, multiple drafts with hand-written notes, hand-written sheets of mathematical developments etc.). The series "Correspondence" (1954-2014) includes his correspondence sorted by individuals' names. Files include correspondence with and about, or only about, the individual named on a given file. There is also a set of personal files. Due to the large number of recommendation letters and other personnel-related content of the Correspondence series, this portion of the collection is restricted until 2050. The series "Teaching" (1967-2012) contains materials related to his teaching activity (e.g., syllabus, reading lists and packets, exercises with solutions). The bulk of it is largely from the Stern School (New York University) from the late 1990s to the early 2010s. The series “Research Activities” (1962-2014) includes materials about activities such as seminars, workshops, study groups and the like. Finally, the series “Writings by Others” (1954-2006) contains materials written by other researchers, with or (in most cases) without notes from Radner. There are no specific connections among the series to be noted, except the fact that, by virtue of their thematic organizations, one can find academic and administrative letters in all the series, i.e., not only in "Correspondence".

More Biographical / Historical Info

Arrangement

The collection arrived from Roy Radner fairly well divided into six groups: “Published Papers” (6 boxes), “Notes on Published Papers” (2 boxes), “Notes on Research” (4 boxes), “Correspondence” (7 boxes), “Miscellaneous Files/Papers” (1 box) and “Teaching Notes” (5 boxes). “Correspondence” remained practically untouched, a very small number of letters from the other files have been refiled here. “Teaching Notes” has been renamed “Teaching”, and re-organized alphabetically. For the same reason, the remaining of the four series that has not been refiled elsewhere has been collapsed into three new series: “Writings,” “Research Activities,” and “Writings by Others”. Duplicates and student grades/coursework have been removed from the collection. Accordingly, it should be noted that the series “Research Activities” partly overlaps with “Teaching” in the sense that most workshops run by Radner could be attended by students, and the latter could be graded on a paper about the contents of these workshops.

Contents of the Collection

1. Writings, 1951-2013

This series includes Radner's published and unpublished papers from 1951 until 2013, with various materials related to them. Such materials can include: correspondence with editors and colleagues, multiple drafts with hand-written notes, hand-written sheets of mathematical developments, numerical sheets of simulation or experimental data, others' papers (not always annoted), transparencies and other oral presentation-related materials, and articles cut from newspapers and magazines. Most of the papers are academic; those that are related to his consulting activities have typically then served as the basis for subsequent academic publications.

2. Correspondence, 1959-2014

This series contains Roy Radner's correspondence, from 1959 up until 2014. Files are sorted by individuals' names. Roughly half the files include an actual correspondence between Radner and the individual named on the file, while the other half contains materials about the individual named on the file (mostly recommendation letters, but also papers, Ph.D. dissertations, CVs). There is also a set of personal files -- the names of which all start by "Radner, Roy".

This series is closed until 2050 due to the high concentration of personnel and tenure review/recommendation letters within these files.

3. Teaching, 1967-2012

This series contains materials related to Roy Radner's teaching activity. Half of it (i.e., a full box) is about the course "Microeconomics: Theory and Application (META)", taught at the Stern School (NYU) from 2000 up until 2012. The other half is about various courses (all microeconomics courses, mostly about the theory of the firm, and some notably as applied to environmental issues) taught at different institutions (though the bulk is largely at the Stern School from the late 1990s to the early 2010s). The different types of materials can be: syllabus, reading lists and packets, exercises with solutions, administrative documents, and a few notes taken for the preparation of courses.

5. Writings by Others, 1954-2006

This series contains writings by others, i.e., mostly published papers but also working papers and Ph.D. dissertations, with or (in most cases) without notes from Radner. These documents were dispersed in all the series of the original collection, hence the constructed thematic organization is not Radner's. Accordingly, it should be noted the distinctions between "Firms and Decentralization", "Game Theory and Principal-Agent" and "Teams" is made on intuitive and semantic grounds (i.e., with respect to the words used in the titles of the papers), not on substantial theoretic grounds. It should also be noted that the dates displayed in this series are publication dates of the papers, not necessarily the dates at which Radner made notes about them or printed them.

With Notes from Radner: 1961-1985, 1961-1987

Historical Note

Roy Radner was Born in Chicago on June 29th 1927 and is currently the Leonard N. Stern Professor of Business at New York University. He studied mathematics from 1945 to 1956 at the University of Chicago. There, he obtained a Ph.D. in mathematical statistics entitled Team Decision Functions (1956) under the supervision of Leonard Savage. He was also a researcher at the Cowles Commission from 1951 to 1957, before moving to the University of California Berkeley (1957-1969), making a quick passage at Harvard (1977-1979), and then spending some years at AT&T Bell Lab (1979-1995) that overlapped with its beginning at New York University (1983-). Throughout these years, he worked as a consultant for various private and public entities.

He is probably most well-known among scholars for three contributions. The first one on the theory of “Team”, especially with Jacob Marschak, which culminated in the 1972 publication of the book Economic Theory of Team. The second one is on growth theory with his 1961 contribution to the so-called “Turnpike Theorems”. The third one is on general equilibrium theory with time and uncertainty, where he introduced a notion of equilibrium involving rational expectations in the early 1970s, today (meaning 2016) known as a “Radner Equilibrium” in financial economics. More generally, Radner made key contributions on the economics of information and on bounded rationality in economics. He is married to economist Charlotte Kuh, and has collaborated with her on some papers.
