I. Transaction Publishers Archives       II. Irving L. Horowitz Academic Papers       III. C. Wright Mills

In August 2006 the Historical Collections and Labor Archives (HCLA) division of the Special Collections Library of the Pennsylvania State University acquired the corporate archives of Transaction Publishers, a gift of Dr. Irving Louis Horowitz, chairman of the board of Transaction Publishers and the Hannah Arendt Distinguished University Professor (Emeritus), Department of Sociology, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.

The Penn State University Libraries, in partnership with Irving L. Horowitz / Transaction Publishers, arranged, described, preserved, and cataloged the Archives. The Archives are arranged in three series: Transaction Publishers Archives, Irving L. Horowitz Academic Papers, and C. Wright Mills - the series links above lead to more contextual information about them.

 


A Note about the Content and Searching of this Online Collection

While this online collection encompasses a range of materials, including advertisements, photo images, catalogs, and reviews, the bulk of it consists of correspondence. Thus, the search parameters are based on information about the letters in the online collection (which represents a portion of the entire Horowitz Transactions Archive).

Each letter has been assigned a "title" consisting of a name (either sender or recipient) and the date of the letter's composition - hence the search fields and the drop-down menu for dates that you see below.

When searching by sender or recipient, input either the last name of the correspondent, or the last name and first name, but without a comma (e.g., Baez Joan). If a comma is included in any name, no results will be returned.
