Barbara Bergmann was leader in feminist economics and author of 11 books. Her archival collection consists of published writings, including congressional testimony; assorted research files and projects, including a selection of books from her library; and personal miscellany, including some career awards.

The Barbara Bergmann Papers consist of writings by Bergmann, largely published versions, as well as some draft materials, project files, and research materials she accummulated. The contents of the collection speak to the breadth of Bergmann's interests in economic approaches -- including mathematical modelling, microsimulation, and government regulations -- as well as her wide ranging interests in sex and race discrimination, child care, poverty, affirmative action, economic aspects of parenting, education, domestic labor, wage discrimination, social security, and numerous other topics within the broad definition of feminist economics.

The Writings Series predominantly consists of publications -- essays, articles, chapters, and books -- authored by Bergmann. There are also copies of her testimonies to Congress on poverty and child care. Materials are filed by title, and any supplemental information (including research, correspondence, and drafts) are included with the final published version of the work. There are a wide range of publications represented in this series, including newspapers, academic journals, commercial presses, and academic presses.

The Project Files Series contains files from some of Bergmann's ongoing professional work, including a substantial amount of research and anecdotal evidence collected about marriage, intended for an unfinished book on the decline of marriage in America. The Project Files series also contains materials about Bergmann's economic activism, relating to her work identifying gender discrimination practices by Giant Foods, Inc., and her consulting role for the Service Employees International Union representing nurses in an anti-trust lawsuit against hospital salary practices in the 2000s.

A selection of published works collected by Bergmann on topics relevant to her research interests, including several Census Bureau reports, is held in the Research Files/Bergmann's Library Series. The Teaching Series includes course packs and hiring information from Bergmann's tenure in the American University Economics Department. Finally, the Autobiographical/Personal Materials Series contains some of Bergmann's awards and honors, including her B.A. from Cornell University; numerous interviews and statements from Bergmann discussing her career, personal history, and economic philosophy; and professional photographs of Bergmann.
