Scope and Content Notes
The Richard L. Clinton Papers document Clinton's research, primarily on population policy formation in Peru. The papers include article reprints, book chapters, book reviews, conference papers, editorial pieces, reports, and research data. The bulk of the collection reflects Clinton's work on three studies (in 1970, 1983, and 1997) of the attitudes toward, and the problems of, population policy formation in Peru. These materials include original questionnaires for the 1970 study of 170 Peruvian opinion leaders that formed the basis of Clinton's Ph.D. dissertation as well as original questionnaires from the 1997 study. The questionnaires are in Spanish with annotations and comments in English by Clinton. A summary of the 1997 data, reports, and a paper summarizing the results of the three studies are also included. In addition to population growth policies in Latin America, the Clinton Papers also address ecodevelopment, U.S. policies in Latin America, and higher education in Latin America. The collection also includes research data on magnetic tape.
