Digitized materials in this online collection form part of the Vannevar Bush papers (MC-0078) in the MIT Libraries Department of Distinctive Collections. For more information about the materials, please consult the collection finding aid.

Collection scope and contents:
The Vannevar Bush Papers consist of correspondence, reports, patent records, notes, memos, manuscript drafts and galley proofs of books and articles, appointment calendars, and reprints primarily from 1956 to 1974. There are three series: 1. Subject Files, 2. Writings, and 3. Appointment Calendars. The collection came in two accessions, and although the two were interfiled, whenever possible the papers were kept in their original order. As a result the subject files are in three sections (Active, Current, and Inactive) but the reasons for these divisions are not readily apparent. The researcher should check all three sections for any particular correspondent or subject, because the dates of the files and the correspondents' names often overlap.

1921 1974
