Joseph L. Hudson Papers

Description

Joseph L. Hudson, Jr., a noted businessman and civic leader, chaired the New Detroit Committee in the aftermath of the city's 1967 uprising. After one year, the New Detroit Committee had achieved some success in advancing the establishment of job recruitment and training programs, but challenges remained in gaining the confidence of the city's residents. New Detroit thus decided to incorporate in August 1968, at which time Hudson resigned as chairman and was succeeded by Max Fisher. Hudson continued his involvement with New Detroit through the 1970s and 1980s, however, by serving on its board of trustees.

University of Michigan Alumnae Council Survey Responses, 1924

Description

In 1924, the Alumnae Council of the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan mailed a survey to the more than 3,000 women currently in attendance and to over 7,000 who had attended the University going back to the year 1870, when women were first admitted. The survey questionnaires asked for biographical information as well as occupations, leadership positions, and queried alumnae to consider who were the ten most influential alumnae of the University. From these approximately responses, a diverse and varied portrait of the alumnae body emerges. In their deeply personal reflections and memories, the alumnae survey responses are a vital record of the lived experiences of women at one of the premier institutions of the United States in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences

Description

The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences not only conveys a clear sense of how philosophy looks at the social sciences, but also marks out a detailed picture of how the two disciplines are interrelated. The encyclopedia brings forward the ways in which philosophical understanding throws light on the social sciences and, in particular, on their central concepts or key themes, and explores the ways in which each of the different social-scientific subdisciplines handles such concepts and themes by exhibiting diverse responses to the philosophical analysis of its methods. Includes newer efforts to link the traditional branches of philosophy and the social sciences via developments in the area of cognition, such as evolutionary psychology and genetics and evolutionary political science. Topics of the 402 entries include philosophy and anthropology, philosophy and economics, and philosophy and politics. Ed. by Byron Kaldis.
