Henry Delfiner Papers

Call Number: MS233
Scope and Contents
This collection documents Henry Delfiner's career as a professor and academic. His papers include coursework and his PhD thesis from Tufts University's Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy; published and unpublished journal articles, reviews, and manuscripts; research notes and bibliographies; and correspondence. His papers also include teaching materials related to courses at the Experimental College at Tufts University, Boston University, and the University of Wisconsin. Teaching materials consist of course approvals, lecture notes, syllabi, student papers and exams, files related to job searches at academic institutions, and a Umatic tape labeled "Tufts Class of May 2 1977." Delfiner's course at the Experimental College, "Understanding International News," was based on current events, so materials for that course contain newsclippings and articles from well-known publications such as the New York Times, largely on topics related to the Middle East and Israel, often appearing with Delfiner's notes.
This collection contains some restricted material. Restrictions related to specific material are listed in the detailed contents list.
