Department of Mathematical Sciences records

Identifier: RG-06-090
Scope and Contents The records of the Department of Mathematical Sciences range in date from 1954 to 1992. They are divided into two subgroups. Records in subgroup 1 are primarily those of Dr. Eliezer Naddor, a Hopkins faculty member from 1956 to 1986 and Professor from 1964 to 1986, although they do contain a large amount of departmental administrative and student records. When removed from Naddor's office, these records were without order or arrangement; a series and file arrangement was imposed upon the...
