Weekly calendars

Sub-series consists of Nouwen’s weekly appointment calendars from 1975 to 1996. Most contain ephemeral material (including personal notes, reminders, invitations and miscellaneous information) which has been removed and placed in separate envelopes.

Verlag Herder files

Sub-series consists of fourteen files which deal with Nouwen's personal and professional dealings with Verlag Herder, a publishing company located in Freiburg, Germany. Much of the correspondence is between Nouwen/his assistants and Franz Johna, Editor for Verlag Herder. Specific Nouwen publications mentioned in the files include A Cry for Mercy, Gracias, A Letter of Consolation, Aging, In Memoriam, Reaching Out, The Living Reminder, Clowning in Rome (also referred to as the Circus book), The Wounded Healer, The Way of the Heart, Behold the Beauty of the Lord (also referred to as the Icon book), Letters to Marc [about Jesus], The Road to Daybreak, In the Name of Jesus, The Return of the Prodigal Son (referred to as The Prodigal Son and Canvas of Love), Heart Speaks to Heart, Creative Ministry, Beyond the Mirror (referred to as A Glimpse Beyond the Mirror), Show Me the Way: Readings for Each Day of Lent (referred to as the Lenten book), The Life of the Beloved (also referred to as Becoming the Beloved), With Burning Hearts: A Mediation on the Eucharistic life (also referred to as the Eucharist book), Our Greatest Gift (also referred to as The Ultimate Gift and Dying Well/Caring Well), Here & Now and In the House of the Lord (referred to as In God's House - later published as Lifesigns), as well as Bob Durback's Seeds of Hope: A Henri Nouwen Reader and Returning: God's Love Call us Home (a Lenten booklet first published by Creative Communications).

Uncertain or other composer or arranger

Subseries includes manuscript scores and or parts for various ensembles. Authorship is uncertain or other than Phil Nimmons. This includes items that were arranged for ensembles led by Phil Nimmons and includes music for jazz ensemble, jazz orchestra, orchestra, jazz combo, incidental music for radio plays, music for clarinet, and music for tenor.

Theology degree records

Sub-series consists of materials related to Nouwen’s time pursuing his doctoral (doctoraal) degree in Theology at Nijmegen University. It appears as though Nouwen received the degree conferred upon completion of the doctoral exams although his thesis was not accepted. Note of December 18, 2013: file 319 unequivocally suggests that Nouwen pursued a degree in psychology (or to be precise in the Social Sciences) in early 1971. See also file 329, box 290 which contains a more elaborate outline of the thesis in question.

The Sources of Increased Efficiency: A Study of DuPont Rayon Plants

The Sources of Increased Efficiency: A Study of DuPont Rayon Plants, originally Hollander’s Ph.D. thesis, was a microeconomic study of technological change. In his memoirs “It’s an Ill Wind…”, he remarks that he was advised by his supervisor Fritz Machlup “to undertake one of the forty-odd studies he had listed; and not being interested in any of them, I selected the first: Investment and Innovation. It proved to be an inspired choice.” In 1965, the thesis was published with few revisions by MIT press. Reviews of the
period reveal that Hollander’s propensity for detailed research and analytical thought, which would define many of his later projects, was evident in this, his earliest work.

Included in this series is the final typescript of the final thesis, detailed proposal for research, drafts of chapters, corrections and revisions, notebooks and loose research notes and a bibliographic card index. There is also correspondence relating to the gathering of research, mainly with officials of DuPont.

The Ipperwash Inquiry

In November 2003, the Ipperwash Inquiry was established by the Government of Ontario to investigate and report on the factors surrounding the death of Dudley George. Mr. George was shot and killed during a protest at the Ipperwash Provincial Park in 1995. The Commission responsible for the Inquiry submitted its final report in 2007. Prof. Russell served as a member of the Inquiry’s Research Advisory Committee whose work assisted with Part II of the Inquiry: Policy and Research. Material in this sub-series covers background research, correspondence and documentation of the activities of the Committee, as well as draft typescripts of individual chapters from the final report. Series also includes letters written in response to statements made by then OPP Commissioner, Julian Fantino, following the National Day of Action, 2007.

The Economics of Thomas Robert Malthus

The Economics of Thomas Robert Malthus (1997) is another of Hollander’s books in his continued study of the classical economists and like its predecessors, especially Ricardo, is poised to set off debate. Economist A.M.C. Waterman, in his article “Reappraisal of ‘Malthus the Economist’, 1933-97” (History of Political Economy 30:2 1998 pp 293-334) in which he reviews important literature surrounding Malthus, writes:

It is quite possible that scholars of the twenty-first century will come to regard Hollander on Malthus as the most important book in the history of economic analysis since Schumpeter 1954… And like most other books Hollander has so far produced, his latest will get its fair share of controversy and disagreement.

Included are various generations of drafts as well as early research and papers on Malthus.

The Economics of Karl Marx: Analysis and Application

The Economics of Karl Marx: Analysis and Application (2008) is Hollander’s 6th text on the classical economists. The book is an assessment of Marx's Capital and other writings, and addresses Marx’s thoughts on the transformation and the surplus-value doctrine, the reproduction schemes, the falling real-wage and profit rates, and the trade cycle. The book attempts to present criticisms that Marx would have encountered during the time of his writing.

This sub-series includes rough notes taken by Hollander on Marx and his reviewers, reference lists, drafts of chapters, and correspondence related to the book and its publication.

The Economics of John Stuart Mill. Vol.I & II

The Economics of John Stuart Mill. Vol.I & II (1985) was Hollander’s third in the series of studies on classical economists and it is evident in the reviews of the book that the criticisms garnered by Ricardo spilled over into many reviewers assessment of this voluminous work. The introduction to economist A.W. Coates’ (Duke University) review places Mill within the context of Hollander’s other works:

The reviewer of these volumes faces a daunting task, not simply because of their immense size but also because they cannot adequately be considered in isolation. Together with Professor Hollander’s earlier studies of The Economics of Adam Smith (1973, pp. 351) and The Economics of David Ricardo (1979, pp.759) they constitute a sustained campaign to establish the validity of singular unified interpretation of the central tradition of nineteenth-century British economic thought. Moreover, if Hollander’s main thesis is correct, it has direct implications for our understanding of orthodox (or mainstream) twentieth century economic thought.

He concludes:

Like the massively ambitious project of which it forms an integral part, Hollander’s Mill will leave a permanent imprint in the history of economics. (The Manchester School, September 1987 #3, pp.310-316)

Included is a highly annotated and corrected early draft of the work, parts of a middle draft and a complete final draft.

The Economics of David Ricardo

It has been stated that The Economics of David Ricardo (1979) is perhaps Hollander’s most enduring legacy to the history of economic thought if only because of the heated controversy it has produced. It has been described by many as counter-revolutionary to the ideas of great economists such as Schumpter and Sraffa. Common among those who oppose and support Hollander’s unique interpretation of Ricardo is recognition that the book, which is detailed in its analysis and research, is an important addition to the debate on this controversial historical figure.

Included is the 1st draft of the manuscript, research notes, and notes of material omitted and to be used elsewhere.

The Economics of Adam Smith

The Economics of Adam Smith (1973) was Hollander’s first major work in his scholarly pursuit to research the British classical economists. Its reception was widely favourable as a major contribution to Smithonian scholarship. Comments from reviews note that the work is detailed and provides a fresh perspective on Smith, especially with respect to The Wealth of Nations.

Included is a copy of his first draft along with research notes.


The two boxes of teaching material in this sub-series contain a small portion of my teaching materials. Before each class I would normally prepare a new outline for use in that class and would eventually throw out the earlier teaching materials. There are some examples of the type of notes used for my criminal law small group for 1993-94 in file 16. I have not included my recent teaching materials because I hope to use them in the future to prepare current teaching materials, assuming that I continue teaching one or more courses.

There are files in another part of the collection dealing with the criminal law casebook, which I have used in various editions since 1967.

   My usual teaching load at U of T was two courses and a seminar or a course and two seminars.  The course was almost always criminal law, sometimes a large section, sometimes a small section (files 14-18), and sometimes both in the same year. For several years after I came to U of T I gave a course on securities regulation and one on personal property.  At Osgoode Hall Law School I taught evidence, personal property, and gave a seminar on criminology.

For many years one of the seminars offered was on Law Reform ((file 7). Since about 1990, I have offered an Advanced Criminal Law Seminar (files 19-27), sometimes with Kent Roach. In recent years, the Advanced Criminal Law Seminar looked at comparisons between criminal justice in the United States and Canada, concentrating on Niagara Falls, New York and Niagara Falls, Ontario as well as comparing Buffalo and Toronto. This area is the subject of research Kent and I did on the Two Niagaras, which is found elsewhere in the collection. The Advanced Criminal Law seminar in 1991 was devoted to an examination of the General Part of the Criminal Law that had been the subject of a report by the Law Reform Commission of Canada (file 21). The work in the seminar formed the basis of a presentation to a Parliamentary Committee by two students and myself (file 22).

  Other seminars conducted over the years included an empirically-based criminology seminar in 1967 (file 6), and seminars on Crime and Literature for two years in the late 1980 which are found elsewhere in the collection.  In 1983, I ran the Law Review Seminar which that year dealt with criminal law reform (file 10) and in 1984 along with Bob Sharpe I ran the Law Review Seminar dealing with the Charter (file 11).  Both resulted in excellent papers by the students published in the Faculty of Law Review.  For a couple of years in the early 1980s I gave a seminar on International criminal law (file 9).

Talks and sermons

Sub-series consists of draft manuscripts and typescripts of many of Nouwen's published and unpublished talks (including informal talks and formal lectures), and sermons (including several marriage homilies). The sub-series represents Nouwen's process of preparing for public speaking, from miscellaneous notes to annotated typescripts of talks intended for publication. Some talks and sermons contain subject matter later published in Nouwen's articles and full-length books; links between them have been made where appropriate. This sub-series also includes transcripts of Nouwen's talks made by others. It has been divided into a sub-sub-series for notebooks regarding sermons and other speaking events given by Nouwen, files, and items.
