Administrative files

Sub-series pertains to Dr. Farrar’s administrative responsibilities at the New Jersey State Hospital and includes correspondence and reports.

Textual records

This series documents Dr. Farrar’s work with the Canadian Federal Department of Soldier’s Civil Re-establishment. In 1916, Dr. Farrar joined the Canadian army. Initially posted to a hospital unit in Kingston, Ontario, he was transferred to Ottawa for duty in the Military Hospitals Commission. Dr. Farrar would eventually become Chief Psychiatrist in the Federal Department of Soldier’s Civil Re-establishment. In this capacity, he treated invalided soldiers suffering from psychiatric illnesses including shell shock. Though primarily based in Ottawa during the war, Dr. Farrar also worked out of the military hospital in Cobourg, Ontario, a photograph of which can be found in /003P(11). Records in this series consist of professional correspondence, reports, patient files, plans for a military hospital.

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.
