Subseries 2. Student Papers, 1941-1953

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries mostly comprises Benson’s student papers written during his time at California University, Columbia, and Harvard, and a few other items related to this time period. Included are also “Fybate” lecture notes, apparently written by Benson. Fybate was a student-founded business near the Berkeley campus that supplied typed lecture notes, usually compiled by paid graduate students, to students who were unwilling or unable to take their own notes.

The original, chronological order of the material is preserved.
