Informal reviews and marginalia

This sub-series contains reviews and marginalia for papers that are not subject to formal reviews. Hollander either informally commented on these works or was asked to comment on the articles by certain authors and colleagues, however his comments were not intended to be used by publishers during their review process.

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 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.
