Writings [series]

The Writings series contains two subseries: Columbia and Articles, Papers, and Books. The Columbia subseries includes writings and related materials from the various classes that Rappaport took at Columbia. Of particular interest is the material from a class he took with Margaret Mead in 1960, "Methods and Problems in Anthropology," as it contains the notes and reports from his first field work experiences. The Articles, Papers, and Books subseries contains correspondence between Rappaport and various publishers, as well as reprints of several of the articles. Overall, this series provides good documentation of Rappaport's changing interests.
