Center for Research on the Utilization of Scientific Knowledge (CRUSK) 1959-1985 (with gaps) [subgrp]

The Center for Research on the Utilization of Scientific Knowledge (CRUSK) subgroup consists of 2.25 linear feet of material. There is good documentation in this series for the formative years of CRUSK, including transcripts for the planning sessions of the University Advisory Committee which met from 1962 to 1963. The Director's correspondence, although not complete, includes notes from Ronald Lippitt and others about the formative ideas of such a center. The reports are especially useful for the first six years of CRUSK, when the center was funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Documentation of the decision to close CRUSK in 1986 exists in the ISR Director's Topical Files and the ISR Executive Committee minutes.

ISR Administrative Files 1946-2013 [subgrp] (40 linear feet)

The ISR Administrative Files sub-group (40 linear feet) is comprised of four records series--Governance Committees, Reports and Policies, Director's Files, and Assistant Director's Topical Files--which offer a broad survey of the operation and management of the institute.

 
Governance Committees 1946-2005 [series]

The Governance Committees series (9 linear feet) documents the decision making bodies of ISR, including the Administrative, Executive, and Policy Committees. Core documentation in these files provides an overview of broad issues of concern before ISR, such as relations between ISR and university departments, methods of conveying the value of social science research, as well as other more focused subjects such as key personnel changes and promotion policies.

 
Administrative Committee 1950-1992 [subseries]

The Administrative Committee records date from 1949 to 1992 and consist of agendas, minutes and proceedings, and notes and indexes for scattered years. The agendas and minutes are arranged in a separate chronological series. The agendas for the Administrative Committee meetings include attachments such as project proposals, promotion review material, and memos regarding topics to be discussed at meetings. Issues and actions taken by the Administrative Committee concern the administration of ISR, such as physical space, budget and overhead, project proposals, salaries and promotions, and security and safety. Some of the minutes for the years 1959 to 1968 include agendas for the next meetings. There are gaps in the minutes, especially for the years 1963 through 1966.

Executive Committee 1946-2005 [subseries]

The Executive Committee minutes and agendas are arranged in one chronological series. Minutes for meetings prior to 1949 can be found within the records of the Survey Research Center. The minutes offer insight into key issues such as the creation of new centers, the types of researchers ISR sought to recruit and promote, research design and sources of funding, as well as the institute's relationships with the university. There are occasionally broad discussions of the social sciences; for example in 1990 the committee explored the idea of a Social Sciences Consortium. Also included is a miscellaneous file group consisting of notes from meetings, lists of members, and correspondence.

Director's Files 1946-2013 [series]

The Director's Files (15.2 linear feet) series date from 1946 to 1986 and are primarily those of Thomas Juster and Angus Campbell but there is some material of Rensis Likert and David L. Featherman. Included in this series is: Correspondence; the Director's Advisory Committee; Federal Budget and National Priorities; Foundations, Associations and other Groups; Topical Files, University of Michigan; and United States Government Units.

 
Correspondence 1953-2013 [subseries]

The largest portion of the correspondence files, which measure 1.5 feet, are arranged alphabetically and are primarily those of Angus Campbell. These files document communication with publishers, researchers, and former ISR employees, among others. There is some overlap between these correspondence files and the University of Michigan and Foundations segments of the Director's files. Of note is the folder of correspondence with Milton Moss, who was funded by ISR from 1973 to 1975 to assist in communicating research findings to federal agencies which might find them relevant. There is also a folder relating to King Features, dating from 1972 to 1975, which documents an attempt to familiarize the public with the findings of social research through a syndicated column.

Director's Advisory Committee (DAC) 1976-1983 [subseries]

The Director's Advisory Committee (DAC) sub-series (1 linear foot) documents a committee formed in 1976 as a forum to advise the director on substantive long-range issues involving ISR. Initially, five staff members representing the ISR program directors met twice a month in meetings open to any program director or senior study director. The function of the committee was to discuss and make recommendations about various subjects selected by the director. Topics discussed include programmatic review, promotion policies, and computing. DAC was discontinued during Juster's six-month leave in 1983 and upon his return he did not resume the committee but instead convened ad hoc groups of senior staff to discuss particular issues as they arose. These records are most useful for Juster's position papers on such issues as the functions and roles of the centers and the institute, institute level reviews, and development activities.

Federal Budget and National Priorities 1980-1985 [subseries]

The Federal Budget and National Priorities sub-series (0.5 feet) documents the impact of the Reagan budget cuts on ISR and the initiatives the director and staff took to minimize those cuts. Included are interviews conducted by Patricia Gurin with business executives and foundation officers in the private sector and congressional testimony by ISR staff, as well as correspondence with congressional representatives. These records make apparent the severity of the impact of federal government funding cuts to ISR.

Foundations, Associations, and Other Groups 1948-1985 [subseries]

The Foundations, Associations, and Other Groups sub-series (1.5 feet) documents efforts to secure funding sources as well as to develop ideas for research projects. The files are primarily those of Angus Campbell, although there are some of Thomas Juster's. Worth noting are the files under National Science Foundation that include the successful proposal for a three-year-grant for $3.1 million. The grant was awarded to ISR in 1971 to provide the sustaining funds necessary to strengthen ISR as a national center for social science research, including expanding the national sampling operation, improving methods and technology, and providing better access to data.

Topical Files 1946-1986, 1998 [subseries]

The Topical Files sub-series (5 linear feet) are primarily those of Juster. They do contain material from earlier directors, notably the General Funds files. Although these files cover a variety of subject areas, there are several files of note. The Teaching Titles files and the Promotion Policy files are important for the discussion of the relationship of ISR staff to the university and include discussions of tenure and compensation issues as they relate to ISR staff. The folders under Computers and Computing provide documentation of the use of computers at ISR. The Development folders document an effort by ISR to establish funding sources other than government agencies. The folder on Organizational Structure contains correspondence between Provost Adams and Rensis Likert regarding the establishment of ISR at UM. The Executive Officers visit files dating from 1976 to 1982 provide profiles of ISR prepared for visits by senior UM officials. Also of note are the folders on ISR staff retreats and the Visiting Site Committee folders. The 1986 report of the external review committee, known as the "Tobin Report," and the reaction and discussion following the report are useful for insight into the goals as well as strengths and weaknesses of ISR in the mid-1980s.

Program for Research on Black Americans 1975-2014 [subgrp] (65 linear feet)

The Program for Research on Black Americans (PRBA) sub-group (comprised of 65 linear feet) contains the records of a sub-unit of the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan that was established in 1976. The program is an ongoing collaboration between an interdisciplinary team of social scientists dedicated to collecting, analyzing, and interpreting high quality national data on African Americans and international data on people of African descent in order to inform the creation of effective public policy. Another key goal of the program is to offer research and training opportunities to social scientists and students of color.

This sub-group includes a variety of materials from James S. Jackson, former director of the Institute for Social Research (ISR), who currently serves a six-year term on the National Science Board, the advisory board of the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Materials include grant proposals, survey instruments, focus group transcriptions, correspondence, bulletins, and internal governance records created under the auspices of the PRBA and its various projects.

Research Center for Group Dynamics (RCGD) 1936, 1943-1960, 1981-2012 (scattered) [subgrp]

The Research Center for Group Dynamics (RCGD) records measure 3.25 linear feet and include primarily the papers of Director Kurt Lewin, including manuscripts and talks. The talks and manuscripts are arranged alphabetically, although the titles given are a mix of the name of the talk and the place that the talk was given. These documents are especially useful for insight into research Lewin was conducting on issues relating to minorities, especially the Jewish people, and how he saw his research as contributing to social change in this arena. The correspondence with the Field Foundation is useful for documenting the initial years of RCGD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; the UM correspondence documents communication between Dorwin Cartwright and UM before RCGD moved from MIT to UM. Also included are films as well as material related to the Flint Youth Study Experience: A Review symposium.

Director's Files 1976-1990 [series]

The Director's Files consist of Correspondence (2 linear feet) and Topical Files (7 linear feet).

 
Correspondence 1976-1990 [subseries]

Correspondence is arranged in two segments, chronological and general. The chronological correspondence is almost exclusively between ISR staff; it concerns meetings, issues relating to hiring and interviewing, and other administrative issues relating to SRC.

The general correspondence is primarily to and from individuals outside ISR. Arranged chronologically, it is useful for information on proposed surveys and projects as documented through correspondence with funding agencies. Correspondents also include potential researchers and visitors to ISR and those requesting information on the work of SRC.

Topical Files 1976-1990 [subseries]

The Topical Files date from 1976 to 1990, with a gap from 1986 to 1989, and document the responsibilities of the SRC director in his role overseeing the research and administrative aspects of SRC as well as the interaction of SRC with other units in ISR. The files are arranged topically within each calendar year. Much of the information relates to the administrative details, especially financial, of various projects and programs. Included in the project and program files, however, are status reports and requests for additional resources which often provide an overview of specific research projects or discussions of proposed projects. One can also follow the development of various computer related projects within SRC, an integral part of the work done at ISR, by looking at the computer-related files for each year. They include documentation on the development of the Computer Aided Telephone Interviewing system and OSIRIS, an integrated system of general-purpose computer programs developed by the SRC and CPS computer support groups and designed to handle the large data sets and complex management and analysis procedures that typify much social research. The files on teaching document the courses taught each year by SRC staff and the policies files include discussions of various policies and their implementation within SRC.
