Scope and Content Notes:
This series consists of five folders containing the numerous personal correspondences between Dr. Norman and his peers, colleagues, and publishers he was in contact with throughout his career in academia. Correspondences with colleagues such as Robert C. Wood, Charles Mills, Harvey Robins, Samuel H. Beer, and other prominent figures in academia accounts for about half of the series. Dialogues with various notable publishing companies such as the Oxford Press, Purdue University Press, and others, make up much of the remainder of the series. Other prominent subjects within the correspondences include: planning for the celebration of the 40th anniversary of GSPIA; family and personal happenings; travel experiences; multilateral coordination of research; granting of tenure; and organizational memos.
Within each folder, the correspondences are organized chronologically by date; they are also grouped into two areas: Colleagues and Academic Work; and Personal.
