Biographical/Historical Information

Herbert Jacob was born at Augsburg, Germany on February 10, 1933. Jacob joined the Department of Political Science at Northwestern University in 1969. While at Northwestern he was affiliated with the University's Center for Urban Affairs and Policy Research as well as with its Program on Law and the Social Sciences. Jacob rejoined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin as the Hawkins Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Professor of Law in 1984. He returned to Northwestern in 1985 and remained there until his death.

Jacob's family escaped Nazi Germany and settled in the United States. Jacob took his A.B. degree in 1954 from Harvard University. His graduate work at Yale University (M.A., 1955; Ph.D., 1960) was interrupted by service in the United States Army from 1955 to 1957. Jacob began his teaching career as an Instructor of Political Science at Tulane University from 1960 to 1962; then accepted an appointment as an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He rose to the rank of Associate Professor in 1964 and to Professor in 1967 before leaving for NU.

Jacob's professional interests centered on American federal and state government and politics and on the intersection of legal and political systems. He was a leading figure in the law and society movement, a field emphasizing the study of law in action. Jacob's book Justice in America (1962) was considered a significant contribution to the field and he served as President of the Law and Society Association during 1981-1983.

Jacob was an active member of the American Political Science Association and made contributions to advisory panels and committees of the National Science Foundation, the National Academy of Science, and the Social Science Research Council. He was the recipient of grants awarded by the Walter E. Meyer Institute of Legal Research (1965), the National Science Foundation (1968, 1972, 1984), the National Institute of Justice (1978), and the Fund for Research on Dispute Resolution (1988). Research undertaken through this grant support resulted in a number of publications. In addition to Justice in America, Jacobs' major books included: German Administration Since Bismarck (1963, 1974), Studies in Judicial Politics (1963), Debtors in Court: The Use of Court Services by Debtors and Creditors (1969), Elementary Political Analysis (1970, 1975), Politics in the American States (1965, 1971, 1976, 1983, 1990, 1996), Justice in America (1965, 1971 [Japanese edition], 1972, 1978, 1985), Urban Justice: Law and Order in American Cities (1973), Felony Justice (1977), Crime and Justice in Urban America (1980), The Frustration of Policy: Responses to Crime by American Cities 1984), Using Published Data (1984), Law and Politics in the United States (1986, 1995), Silent Revolution: The Transformation of Divorce Law in the United States (1988), and Courts, Law, and Politics in Comparative Perspective (1996). He was the author of dozens of journal articles and contributed chapters and served as editor, on the editorial boards, or as a referee for the American Political Quarterly, Social Science Quarterly, Law and Society Review, the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology, the Research Journal of the American Bar Foundation, and Law and Politics Book Review.

At Northwestern University Jacob served on a number of faculty committees. He was involved in a considerable amount of Political Science Department administrative work as Departmental Chairman (1974-1977), Director of Graduate Studies, and Departmental Placement Officer.

Jacob married Lynn Carp. The couple had four children: Joel B., David S., Jenny S., and M. Max. Jacob died at his home in Evanston, Illinois on August 29, 1996.

Scope and Content

The Herbert Jacob Papers fill sixteen boxes and although they span the period 1962 to 1996, most material dates between the early 1970s through the early 1980s. With the exception of one folder of general biographical materials, the papers are arranged into four broad categories: correspondence files, records relating to Jacobs' administrative work and teaching in the Northwestern University Department of Political Science, records pertaining to research projects, and presentations and publications.

Correspondence dates between 1970 and 1996 and is divided into general and subject files. Nearly all the correspondence pertains to professional matters and concerns sponsored research, publications, and relations with colleagues. General correspondence is arranged alphabetically by surname of correspondent or by the first keyword in the name of an institution or organization. Where there are multiple items pertaining to a single correspondent those items have been placed in chronological order. Correspondence with persons or organizations of particular significance to Jacob is contained in folders according to subject. These subject files are ordered alphabetically by surname of individual or, again, by first keyword if it relates to an organization. Correspondence within subject files is arranged in chronological order.

Files relating to Jacobs' work within the Northwestern University Department of Political Science include general administrative and curricular files. General administrative files, largely concerning the Department's graduate program, are topical with folders arranged alphabetically by title. Curricular files form the bulk of the papers and document courses taught by Jacob between 1970 and 1996; most date from the 1980s and 1990s. The files are arranged first by course number and, where there are multiple files per course, subsequently by date. Typically included in these files are syllabi, examinations, grade records and course evaluations. Often found here are lecture notes and other teaching materials. Occasionally there is correspondence between Jacob and students as well as student papers and completed examinations. At the end of the curricular files are several folders of correspondence, proposals and other work relating to individual students, usually ones pursuing graduate degrees in Political Science. These student files are alphabetized by surname. Finally, audiotape cassette recordings of Jacob's 1990 B30 Introduction to Law and Politics course lectures are boxed at the end of the series.

Files pertaining to several of Jacob's research projects, including work supported by grant funding, are found in the papers. The files are arranged first by theme or title of the project: divorce law, empirical theories about courts, felony justice, government responses to crime, and the judicial career. Where there are multiple files relating to a single project folders are arranged alphabetically by topical headings. The most extensively documented research projects found in the papers are those on felony justice and government responses to crime. Both projects resulted in major publications. While some field notes are included the files mainly concern project administration and research methodology.

Copies of presentations made before professional organizations and of publications complete the papers. Folders are arranged in alphabetical order according to presentation or publication title. Typically represented in these folders are copies of the presentations and article reprints. In some cases the folders contain relevant correspondence.

Arrangement of Materials

With the exception of one folder of general biographical materials, the papers are arranged into four broad categories: correspondence files, records relating to Jacobs' administrative work and teaching in the Northwestern University Department of Political Science, records pertaining to research projects, and presentations and publications.
