Abstract

Theodore Schultz, 1927 graduate of South Dakota State College, was the 1979 winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. This collection is composed mainly of Schultz's personal collection of articles he authored. Most are offprints from the journal in which the article appeared and many bear Schultz's signature. Included are a few articles not authored by Schultz which are review articles or contain biographical material about Schultz.

Biographical Note

Theodore William Schultz was born in Arlington, South Dakota, April 30, 1902. He was the oldest of eight children. During World War I, with labor scarce, he worked on the family farm instead of going to high school. The agricultural depression that blighted farms during the 1920s prompted him to go to college to study the underlying causes of what had happened. He studied economics at South Dakota State University and received his bachelor's degree in 1926. He then went on to graduate school at the University of Wisconsin where he received his master's and doctoral degrees in 1930.

After graduation, Schultz began his teaching career in agricultural economics at Iowa State University. Four years later he became head of the Department of Economic Sociology. During World War II, scholars at the school collaborated with outside specialists on reports demonstrating how government policy could promote the national interest by influencing agricultural production. One report recommended that margarine be substituted for butter. The Iowa Dairy Industry and the college administration tried to prevent publication. While Dr. Schultz successfully led the charge against censorship, he and several others resigned in protest in 1943.

Dr. Schultz went on to the University of Chicago. He soon became department chairman, and his leadership was credited with helping Chicago become an academic center for innovative theory. He became a Charles L. Hutchinson Distinguished Service Professor in 1952 and gained emeritus status in 1972 upon his retirement.

Schultz popularized the idea of "human capital"--the idea of treating educational spending as an investment. He was also known for his view of agriculture as a contributor to a nation's economic development, not simply a way to feed the work force in other areas of the economy. For this he war presented with the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1979, a prize he shared with Arthur Lewis.

Schultz authored several books and edited others during his long career, and he gained worldwide recognition for his investigations into investment in human resources as a means toward economic progress. He won the Francis A. Walker Medal in 1972, which is given only once every five years by the American Economics Association. He received five honorary doctoral degrees during his career from various universities, including one from South Dakota State University. His long and varied career has included serving as adviser and consultant to some of the nation's largest foundations, numerous federal agencies, the White House, and branches of the military.

Theodore married Esther Werth, a native of Frankfort, South Dakota and a graduate of South Dakota State University. They had two daughters; Elaine and Margaret and one son; T. Paul.

Theodore W. Schultz formally retired in 1972 but remained an active researcher until he fractured his hip in 1990 and became bedridden. He died February 26, 1998 in an Evanston, Illinois nursing home after suffering from pneumonia.

Arrangement

This collection is arranged into three series:

Series 1. General

Series 2. Publications

Series 3. Dale Hoover collection on Theodore Schultz

Folders are arranged in alphabetical order within each series.

Contents Note

This collection is composed mainly of Schultz's personal collection of articles he authored. Most are offprints from the journal in which the article appeared and many bear Schultz's signature. Also included are a few articles not authored by Schultz which are review articles or contain biographical material about Schultz.

The general series is composed of correspondence and a few collected works include either articles about Schultz or items that Schultz reviewed. The correspondence contains a letter from Schultz to Dr. Leon Raney, Dean of Libraries, South Dakota State University discussing writing a bibliography about Schultz.

Publications are composed of Schultz' personal collections of articles, books and reports that he wrote. Most are off-prints from the journal in which the article appeared and many bear Schultz's signature.

The Dale Hoover collection on Theodore Schultz consists mainly of article drafts and conference papers, with a small amount being article reprints. This material was collected by Dale Hoover, a member of North Carolina State University Department of Agricultural and Resources Economics faculty. The items include highlighted passages and notation by Hoover. Some items have notes from Schultz to Hoover. It appears that Schultz would occasionally send drafts of articles to Hoover for opinions before publication.
