 Collection
Identifier: 12/3/1

  • Staff Only
These records, comprising twenty-five bound volumes and four archival boxes, consist of case materials (cases and readings) used as instructional aids in various courses and special educational programs offered by the School of Business.

The bound volumes include cases and readings in use in the School in 1964. Departments and fields include: accounting, administration, business economics, competition of ideas, financial management, human problems, managerial responsibilities, marketing, production and operations, quantitative controls and statistics, and transportation. The index for the bound volumes notes case names or titles of readings, dates of publications, lengths in pages, and code numbers.

The unbound cases and readings were separated from the Howard F. Bennett Papers (Series 12/1/4). They are similar to the bound materials but are not part of the same series used by the School in 1964.
