  • Description

I am most grateful to the RAC as they awarded me a generous grant to investigate the newly acquired archives of the Ford Foundation with respect to their Population Program. During my archival research I investigated the following sources: 1) Oscar Harkavy's office files preserved in 27 boxes 2) Ford Foundation unpublished reports, on paper and on microfilm 3) Ford Foundation "logs" (unsuccessful grant applications) and grants; amongst these, I processed all cases and projects advised by A. Southam and E. Witschi.
