Alphabetical Files (1950-1989) [series]

Alphabetical Files (1950-1989) is the largest of the three series and is primarily a correspondence file although Festinger's speeches, consulting reports, and critical evaluations (of experiments, books and journal articles) are also included. Festinger worked for many years as a consultant for the Behavioral Research Service of the General Electric Company and for various branches of the military in their efforts to increase worker productivity and test for leadership skills. "The President's Science Advisory Committee" documents Festinger's work in evaluating the civil defense shelter program and in developing a national agenda for the behavioral sciences in the early 1960s under the Kennedy administration.
