of The Gary Becker Papers (117.42 linear feet, 223 boxes) is currently open at the University of Chicago.

This collection provides much of Gary Becker’s intellectual history. One of his autobiographical essays, “A Personal Statement of My Intellectual Development” (see box 120, folder 10 and box 189, folder 1), traces his academic career from his adolescence through his time as an undergraduate at Princeton University, his time as a graduate student, his time as a professor at the University of Chicago, his extramural activities on corporate advisory boards, political participation, and government councils. The essay may have been written based on some of the records collected here. This collection documents his intellectual trajectory primarily through his intellectual production, research files, and communications. His approach to research and writing, his publication history, and his involvement with others in the field of economics and others in public service and international politics are included here. While the collection is primarily about his professional life, there is also mention of his relationship with his wife, Giti Nashat, and the two traveled together to many conferences and events in the United States and abroad, as well as other events in his life for the sake of a little research and treatment of his biography.

Collection materials include handwritten and printed copies of Becker’s scholarly work, including notes (and bibliographic cards), papers (and drafts), charts, data sheets, correspondence, periodical reprints, magazines, newspapers, clippings, grant documents, reports, referee files, course and instructional materials, photographs, VHS tapes, DVDs, and related ephemera.
