Primarily personal and professional correspondence, with a small amount of other personal information, including biographical details, awards, clippings, vitae, travel, and a few miscellaneous financial documents. Correspondence is arranged chronologically, followed by personal information folders at the end of the series. A photograph album and scrapbook, described below, are boxed separately.

Box 19

Photograph album documenting one or more overseas trips and cruises by the De Vyvers. Places pictured include sites in the Caribbean islands, Copenhagen, London, and Paris, and many unidentified locations. Contains approximately 450 black-and-white and color prints and post cards. Undated, circa late 1950s-early 1960s.

Box 20

Chronological scrapbook of De Vyver's career and personal life, from his student years at Oberlin and Princeton through the bulk of his career at Duke University. Contains awards, clippings, correspondence, photographs, programs, and reprints of several of his earliest published articles. Many loose items inserted in the album have been removed and foldered separately.


Drafts and reprints of articles, notes and card files, printed items, and other research materials for De Vyver's writings. A large proportion of the material dates to the 1950s and 1960s and concerns his extensive work on labor and management issues in Australia, but the series also contains his research on various African countries, articles he published as Vice-President of Erwin Mills, and a hand-corrected typescript of his doctoral dissertation. Arranged in alphabetical order, by title or general subject area.
