Scope and Content Note

This series contains materials related to Professor Berman's years on the faculty of Harvard Law School. Berman was a full-time Harvard faculty member from 1948 to 1985, and became emeritus when he left to join the Emory faculty. Because he maintained contacts with Harvard after he departed, some documents in this series date from his post-Harvard years.

Correspondence with other faculty members on general administrative matters is arranged alphabetically by surname, and then chronologically. Erwin Griswold, Dean of Harvard Law School from 1946 to 1967, is Berman's most frequent correspondent in this series.

The subject files contain correspondence and other materials on specific topics, and are arranged alphabetically by topic. They cover Berman's work with special graduate students and Soviet scholars, his participation in Harvard's research project on the development of Israeli law, and his own research projects, primarily in international law.

Arrangement Note

Organized into two subseries: (3.1) Correspondence and (3.2) Subject files.
