Subseries 1. Research Notes, 1959-1997

Scope and Content Notes:

Jeffrey's research material consists mostly of handwritten and typed documents recording his reflections on subjective probability, decision theory, Bayesianism and related topics, including comments about the works of others. Also featured is a notebook on the Richard Lewontin Lectures that Jeffrey attended while in Harvard in the Fall of 1984.

The files are arranged in chronological order starting with the earliest; undated material is placed at the end of the series in alphabetical order according to folder title.
