View Series IV. Writings: Books and Pamphlets
In addition to producing over forty books and pamphlets in the course of his career, Mumford the journalist wrote approximately 1, 000 articles and book reviews. He clipped and saved most of these pieces, and as a group, they form the most complete set of his writings for periodicals, including many from other countries not readily available here.
The arrangement of this series reflects the Mumfords' chronological filing of such materials together; it includes clippings, proofs, typescripts, manuscripts, notes, research materials, complete periodicals, and pamphlets not included in Section A of Newman's Bibliography . Entries from Sections B, C, D, E, F, and part of H in Newman's Bibliography have been combined in this series. Not all of the pieces have been published; there are rejected articles (particularly from Mumford's early journalistic work), and short book reviews (most dating from the 1960s and 1970s) written for internal or advertising use by publishing houses. Although many of Mumford's lectures and addresses were published, this series contains a significant number which were not. Notes for classroom lectures are found in "Series XI: Higher Education Activities."
Of the roughly 1, 000 published periodical pieces, many were reprinted in other periodicals, sometimes in translation or in pamphlet form. To some extent the same is true of lecture and address texts. For these reasons filing decisions had to be made on a case-by-case basis. Generally, the various forms of an article or lecture were filed together. No attempt was made to file items chronologically within each year.
