Subseries III.2: Published Articles, 1878-1935

This subseries represents the large volume of published articles written by John Bates Clark that are in the collection. It begins with a small selection of individually-bound works and a complete bibliography of John Bates Clark's published work. With those few exceptions, the bulk of the material in this subseries survived in the form of scrapbooks of unknown origin. While the scrapbooks have been disassembled for preservation purposes, the material they contained has remained cohesive and in the original numbered order. Each scrapbook contains a table of contents, and a master index and bibliography for the seven numbered scrapbooks appears before Scrapbook One.
