Scope and Content Note

This series contains reference material that Palmer gathered for his own use between the 1930s and mid-1960s, covering a variety of topics relating to public housing and urban redevelopment in Europe, the United States, and, to a lesser extent, the Third World. The individual folders are arranged alphabetically. Material on urban planning is listed under "City and Town Planning," "Economic Policy and Planning," New Towns," and "Urban Redevelopment." Information about building methods is contained in folders labeled "Construction Industry." The largest single section, "Housing," provides material on housing legislation, slum clearance projects listed by cities, and general subjects (subdivided as Housing-finance, Housing management, etc.) Folders are also filed under names of individuals, names of private and public agencies, and names of countries. A small group of oversize items, arranged alphabetically, is filed in Boxes 70-73, and cross-reference notes in the regular alphabetical sequence identify the precise location of this oversized material. In order to locate miscellaneous folders of information not filed under the above headings, it is recommended that researchers utilize the index to the Palmer Collection located at the end of the inventory. Palmer himself maintained a card file as an index to material in this file series and as a reference guide to material on various subjects. This five-drawer card file is with the collection and is available for use.
