Sub-series consists of notification of meetings, agendas, minutes, reports from committees (including budgets and other financial statements), proposals, forms updating the officers and directors, and other materials prepared for meetings of the New Catholic Times membership, including the annual meeting of the Board of Directors.

From 1976 to 1989, members referred to themselves as "the collective" and meetings, held approximately bi-weekly, were called Collective meetings. The annual meeting of the Board of Directors usually occurred in January or February. Records for Collective meetings for the years 1978 and 1979 are absent, as indicated on post-it notes in the records for 1980 and 1977. From 1990 on, members referred themselves as "the membership" and Membership meetings were held twice a year, with the business conducted at the fall meeting. Records for membership meetings after 1999 do not exist, though see sub-series 2 for records pertaining to meetings of the Publishing Group.

Sub-series consists of eighty files related to business dealings with publishers that Nouwen dealt with on an occasional basis. These files relate primarily to the publication of articles, requests to reprint passages from previously published books, articles and cassettes, requests for endorsements of books by other authors, and translation rights. In addition to business and personal correspondence, the files may contain business documents such as draft manuscripts of books, articles, endorsements and introductions, book cover mockups, signed contracts, royalty statements and publishers' catalogues. Of special note are the St. Anthony Press files which contain draft copies of the Jesus and Mary book and the homilies "Mary, Mother of the Suffering Jesus" and "Mary, Mother of the Priests", as well as the files "Novalis" which contain drafts of Nouwen's 1992 meditations for Passion Sunday and the First Sunday in Advent.

Personal accountant files

  • CA ON00389 F4-6-3
  • Subseries
  • June 1981 - April 1995, predominant January 1989 - December 1994
  • Part of Henri Nouwen fonds

Sub-series consists of material sent by Nouwen's personal accountant (Joe Sarno) to Nouwen's office at Daybreak in January 1996. Includes the 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994 income tax returns and supporting documentation. Also includes permanent reference material from Nouwen's retirement accounts, health insurance, 1995 Visa statements, and the US Internal Revenue Service.
Joe Sarno was Nouwen's personal accountant from the mid-1970s until April 1995. He was based in Connecticut and became Nouwen's accountant when Nouwen was at Yale Divinity School. Sarno was responsible for Nouwen's income tax returns, American bank accounts, credit cards, and retirement funds. It is assumed that he was responsible for the bulk of Nouwen's financial activities before Nouwen's move to L'Arche Daybreak in 1987. However, since legislation only requires records be kept for seven years, the majority of the records he sent to Daybreak only go back to 1989. Completing Nouwen's 1994 tax return was Sarno's last responsibility as Nouwen's accountant.
According to correspondence found in box 248 file 1438, Sarno sent two boxes of material to Nouwen's office containing income tax records and permanent reference material. The material was found in large manilla envelopes with Sarno's handwriting on the outside describing the envelopes' contents. The envelopes were bound with elastics and did not appear to have been opened since being sent to Nouwen's office in January 1996.

Administrative records

  • CA ON00389 F4-7-2
  • Subseries
  • 1966 - 1994, predominant 1983 - 1985
  • Part of Henri Nouwen fonds

Sub-series consists of administrative materials relating to activities which Nouwen performed as a university professor within the administrative and social frameworks of the academic setting. This sub-series has been divided into sub-sub-series according to each academic institution, namely:

  3. Harvard Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
  4. Boston College, in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, USA.
    and,
  5. Regis College, the University of Toronto, Canada.
    It is highly likely that Nouwen created administrative records while a professor at the Joint Pastoral Institute of Amsterdam and the Catholic Theological Institute of Utrecht between 1968 - 1970. However, these records have not survived.

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.

School certificates

Sub-series consists of eighteen documents certifying Nouwen's completion of courses, degrees and programmes.

Articles by Nouwen

  • Part of Henri Nouwen fonds

Sub-series consists of published articles written by Nouwen between 1960 and 1996. A majority of the articles are dated between 1975 and 1996 probably because in 1975 Nouwen began transferring the articles for storage at Yale.

Specific publications include Pastoral Psychology, Sojourners, Harvard Divinity Bulletin, Feu et Lumiere, The New Oxford Review, National Catholic Reporter, Weavings, and Zaken die God raken. Articles from church newsletters and other sources with limited publication are also included. In addition to featuring unique writings, the articles also represent published material that has been excerpted, condensed, adapted and reprinted from Nouwen's books, articles, and conference speeches. This sub-series contains only those articles written by Nouwen which he collected and does not contain all of his published articles as is evident by several incomplete article series.
The files are arranged chronologically. Each file features one unique published article although photocopies of newspapers as well as business cards and letters indicating the source of the articles are also included. Each file/article has been described at the item level.

Courts and Trials

After I was appointed dean in early 1972, I started to organise an interdisciplinary series of lectures on courts and trials (file 2). This was designed to make a statement that we were not just a professional school but were part of the University. The series was widely advertised and was given every few weeks throughout the academic year 1972-73 (files 3-4). The contributors were from a wide array of disciplines--Reg Allen in philosophy, Don Dewees in economics, Tony Doob in psychology, Jim Giffen in sociology, Charles Hanly in psychoanalysis, Ken McNaught in history, Anatol Rapoport in mathematics, and Peter Russell and Don Smiley in political science (files 5-15). Northrop Frye backed out (file 8), but later contributed to the Crime in Literature series. The series was published by the U of T Press in 1975 (files 17-22) and the book was dedicated to Bora Laskin (file 11).

Classical Economics

Classical Economics, (1992) was designed as a text book for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and presents many of the ideas Hollander espoused in his books on Smith, Ricardo and Mill. Taped lectures found in Series V formed the starting point of the book.

Included are early and final drafts.

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 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.
