Series I. Correspondence, 1944-1960

Scope and Content Notes:

This series is comprised mainly of Joseph Scanlon's correspondence with companies interested in the Scanlon Plan and generally states the effects of the plan at each particular company. Personal correspondence includes information regarding Scanlon's work with the United Steelworkers of America, Mutual Security Agency, and Economic Cooperation Administration, as well as letters from friends working with industries in post-World War II Europe asking for his services. These letters, particularly those of Meyer Bernstein and Clinton Golden, detail the problems facing European economies in the early 1950s. Other documents include correspondence about Scanlon's involvement in Life magazine's Pursuit of Happiness Round Table and the issue of Life in which the meeting's suggestions were presented, articles by Scanlon, clippings regarding the success of the Scanlon Plan at various companies, copies of Scanlon's obituary released by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his posthumous honors. Photographs of Scanlon are also present.
