  • Scope and Contents

    The Robert H. Gault Papers include a small amount of biographical materials and correspondence, however the bulk of the papers consists of his various writings, both published and unpublished.

    The Biographical File is fairly comprehensive. The two folders containing Testimonial Letters also help illuminate Gault's career, in that they were written on the occasion of a dinner and a conference honoring him in 1951. The first folder is arranged alphabetically by correspondent with a list of those correspondents added.

    The manuscript of his book Social Psychology appears to be a revision made for a new edition published in 1940. Unfortunately, chapters ten and eleven are missing. The two prospectus were for books which were never published. The draft “Crooked Sticks to Cub Tractors” may have been written for the International Harvester Company or the United States Department of Agriculture.

    The DePaul University lecture notes are arranged by course number and chronologically by date of lecture. The last category entitled Miscellaneous Writings includes a manuscript, ‘Juvenile Delinquincy’, which may be chapters from a proposed book, but they seem never to have been published. The folder titled “Preliminary Script” includes a proposal for a series of programs which Gault had intended to write.
