Juanita Morris Kreps papers, 1921-2001 and undated 41.1 Linear Feet — Approximately 19,925 Items

Juanita Morris Kreps was born January 11, 1921, in Lynch (Harlan Co.), Kentucky. She was Professor of Economics at Duke University (1958-1977), where she held the James B. Duke professorship (1972-1977), also serving as Dean of the Woman's College (1969-1972) and University Vice President (1973-1977). She then was appointed U.S. Secretary of Commerce in 1977 for the Carter Administration and served for two years. Kreps's papers span the years 1921-2001, and contain incoming and outgoing correspondence (1968-1979), many speech drafts (1967-1997), twenty photograph albums, fifteen scrapbooks, 692 color and 595 black-and-white loose photographs, and over 100 negatives. There are also briefing books, reports, notes, minutes, appointee recommendations, speech drafts, and other documents relating to Kreps's cabinet-level work. The audience for her speeches included university students as well as alumni and women's organizations; speech topics focus on education for women, the value of women's work, age and gender in economics and economic markets, and leisure and economic growth. Other correspondence documents Kreps's career positions, some more fully than others, including Secretary of Commerce; Duke University Dean of the Woman's College, especially relating to the merger of the Woman's College and Trinity College; Public Director of the New York Stock Exchange Board; and Women's Research and Education Institute Board of Directors. Photograph albums and scrapbooks detail visits to the USSR, China, and Japan and contain clippings regarding her cabinet position.

The Juanita Kreps Papers span the years 1921-2001, mainly documenting Kreps's career as an economist, academic administrator, and U.S. Secretary of Commerce for the Carter administration. The two series holding the majority of the materials, the Secretary of Commerce and Speeches Series, concern her service in the political and public spheres respectively. The Secretary of Commerce Series is arranged in the following seven subseries: Appointment Books and Calendars, Appointment and Confirmation Process, Correspondence, Notes, Subject Files, Scrapbooks, and Photographs. Photograph albums and scrapbooks detail visits to the USSR, China, and Japan and contain clippings regarding her cabinet position. There are also separate series for correspondence and appointment books that fall outside the scope of the Secretary of Commerce period. The second largest series in the collection, the Speeches Series contain drafts, frequently annotated and accompanied by other material, of Kreps's lectures, speeches, and remarks on occasions such as academic conferences, university commencements, various other university events, and corporate executive board meetings. The subjects are broadly based and reflect her interests in economics, especially in aging and older workers, women's social conditions and education, the value of women's labor, women in the corporate world, and work and leisure issues. Speeches given after her tenure as Secretary of Commerce also cover broader issues about globalization and domestic and international economic policy.

Albeit small, the Correspondence Series spans several decades and documents Kreps's exchanges with academics and scholars, the local and federal governments, and lobbyist groups. Other correspondence documents Kreps's career positions, some more fully than others, including Secretary of Commerce; Duke University Dean of the Woman's College, especially relating to the merger of the Woman's College and Trinity College; Public Director of the New York Stock Exchange Board; Women's Research and Education Institute Board of Directors; and Carter Presidential Center fundraiser. The Appointment Books and Calendars Series records Kreps's busy schedule of events and engagements, and the Publications Series holds her contributions to academic journals, government publications, and books. The Visual Material Series houses images that date from her childhood through her long career; photos taken during her cabinet position are found in the Secretary of Commerce series. Other Files Series contains materials that fall out of the above series, such as teaching materials and publicity clippings.

Group based in Southeastern United States, founded in 1977 at the first National Women's Studies Association Convention. SEWSA is committed to the promotion and support of women's studies and women's advocacy in schools, universities, and communities. Includes correspondence, minutes, newsletters, membership lists, papers presented at conferences, 12 photographs, SEWSA conference materials, and travel grant files. Acquired as part of the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture.

Collection contains a variety of administrative, business, financial, and other materials relating to the operation of the Southeastern Women's Studies Association. The majority of the materials date from 1985 through the mid-1990s, with additional items from both before and after that period.

Files have been loosely arranged into series. The Administrative and Business Records series includes the organization's bylaws and its subsequent updates; correspondence; agendas and meeting minutes from committees and business meetings; financial statements and accounts; conference proposals and some conference papers; travel grant materials; membership lists and addresses; stationary and other templates; and lists of officers and committee members from various points throughout the organization's history. Conference planning is a large component of this series, resulting in some overlap with the Conferences series. Another notable portion is the files relating to SEWSA's travel grants, which include both applications, acceptances, and information about the grant program. This series has been largely sorted by date, with occassional subjects filed separately.

The Conferences series include conference planning materials, as mentioned above, as well as conference programs and calls for papers announcements. The Newsletters series includes a run of the newsletters as well as newsletter preparation files from the 1980s. Finally, there are also some conference and SEWSA buttons as well as a SEWSA 1985 t-shirt present in the Ephemera series.
