Series I: Correspondence, 1958-1992

This series contains correspondence between C. S. Wu and her colleagues and friends. It includes English language and Chinese language correspondence from all over the world. The letters relate to Wu's research and professional obligations, such as her positions at Columbia University and the American Physical Society. Correspondence with the American Physical Society and Columbia University also appear in Series II and Series IV, respectively. The correspondence was originally separated into a chronological series and an alphabetical series. Those series have been maintained as sub-series and a third sub-series of general correspondence has been added.

Subseries I.1: Chronological, 1964-1992

Correspondence in this series is arranged by year and month.

Subseries I.2: Alphabetical, 1958-1992

Alphabetical correspondence is not only organized by last name, but also by topic, such as "Commencement," "Chicago, University of," and "Proof Reading." In the alphabetical subseries, there is considerable correspondence with Kay Runge of the University of Heidelberg. The folders of "Alphabetical-Moszkowski, Steven A." and "Miscellaneous-John Wiley and Sons" contain correspondence regarding, Beta Decay , a book co-authored by Wu and Moszkowski and published by John Wiley Sons Publishers in 1965. Folder "Miscellaneous-Fan Mail" contains some requests for autographs and photos of Wu, but similar letters can be found throughout the chronological correspondence files as well. The folder of correspondence of Glenn R. Schleede contains a photograph from the White House of President Ford signing the bill to create the Office of Science and Technology Policy in 1976. Folder "Miscellaneous-Job Inquiries Declined" contains letters to and from Wu and other faculty in the Physics Department of Columbia University regarding teaching positions and are arranged alphabetically by surname of the person applying. Similar correspondence can be found throughout the chronological correspondence. The folder "Miscellaneous-Free Circulation of Scientists" focuses on the resolution of that name passed by the International Council of Scientific Unions regarding issues like the Soviet scientists who were being prevented from leaving the country. In a letter dated April 9, 1975, Wu declined an invitation from President McGill to serve on the Ad Hoc Committee of Columbia to study comparative salaries of men and women.

Series II: American Physical Society (APS), 1962-1982

This series holds material relating to Wu's participation in the American Physical Society (APS), of which she was president during the mid-1970s. The series is divided into six sub-series: Sub-series II.1. Correspondence; Subseries II.2. Meetings; Subseries II.3. Administrative Matters; Subseries II.4. Publications and Reports; Subseries II.5. Awards and Events; and Subseries II.6. Research and Studies.

Subseries II.1: Correspondence, 1962-1978

This subseries contains correspondence on issues of importance to the APS, including persecution of Soviet scientists, committee appointments and decisions, science and physics issues in the federal government, and publications. The correspondence is arranged by subject as well as by individual names, committees and organizations. The folder of correspondence with Karl Darrow includes letters responding to a dispute surrounding an article published in Physical Review in the 1960's, about which Harvard faculty suggested a publishing bias in favor of Columbia University. Some strong language is used in these letters. The two folders of voter correspondence from 1966 reflect Wu's position on the Board of Tellers of the APS when a vote on a new constitution and bylaws sparked controversy. The correspondence in these folders relates to that controversy.

Series IV: Columbia University, 1945-1994

This series contains correspondence, papers, data, articles, teaching materials, and general administrative materials related to Wu's time at Columbia University. Correspondence with Columbia University faculty and administrators is also housed in Series I. Correspondence under both the alphabetical sub-series and the chronological sub-series. The series is divided into three subseries: Subseries IV.1. Affirmative Action; Subseries IV.2. Physics Department; and Subseries IV3. Assorted Materials.

Subseries IV.1: Affirmative Action, 1968-1977

This subseries contains detailed correspondence and collected data on the creation of an affirmative action program at Columbia University. Included are background materials for making decisions on the program, copies of Harvard and Princeton University's affirmative action programs, and documents concerning women at Columbia. Wu was an active member of the President's Faculty Advisory Committee for Affirmative Action and was part of a group of women members of the Committee who decided to form the Women's Caucus, which appears to have been unofficial. The material in the sub-series also contains information on the Commission on the Status of Women along with the Advisory Committee on Affirmative Action, since the two were intertwined.

Series V. Research, 1948-1985

This series contains reports, papers, research notes, laboratory notebooks, and transparencies of figures relating to physics research Wu was involved in. Also included are articles, papers, and research notes used as reference material by Wu. There is some correspondence with other physicists regarding their research in relation to Wu's. The laboratory notebooks all seem to relate to the work done by Wu and her assistants for the Atomic Energy Commission in the 1940's and 1950's.
