Scope and content
This series focuses on Professor Fuss’ teaching career, almost entirely at the University of Toronto, though there are three files on courses he taught at Harvard University between 1969 and 1972. The files contain memoranda and correspondence, notes, course outlines, lecture notes, problem sets, questions for tests and examinations, and some anonymous course evaluations. References to student marks have not been retained. This portion of the series ends with a number of electronic files.
At Harvard Professor Fuss taught principles and the economics of regulation at the undergraduate level and industrial organization, introductory econometrics, advanced econometrics, and microeconomic theory at the graduate level. The surviving files in this series are for the undergraduate course on business organization and public policy and the untitled graduate courses 2210A and 2240A.
The series continues with courses given at the Erindale campus and the St. George campus of the University of Toronto. At the undergraduate level he taught courses in microeconomic theory, industrial organization, econometrics, and economics of regulation. At the graduate level he taught microeconomics theory and econometrics. Included in these are lecture notes given to Professor Fuss by Daniel McFadden at the University of California, Berkeley (where Fuss took his doctorate), and Dale Jorgensen at Harvard University.
Most of the files are in paper format, but there are some electronic files, partly in the form of e-mail. The arrangement is by course number within each institution.
