Folder

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.

File
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.

File
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.

Folder

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.

Folder

Correspondence, bylaws, budgets, newsletters, and other files of the Department of Economics and the Department of Economics and Business Administration. Although material covers the full duration of De Vyver's career, approximately half of it dates to the years 1957-1964, when he served as Department Chair. There is also some very early correspondence about department faculty members in the 1920s and 1930s. Arranged alphabetically by topic, chronologically within larger categories.

File

This small group of correspondence probably originated in the files of William Henry Glasson, Professor of Economics from 1902-1940 and Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Science, 1926-1938. In part, the letters document the recruitment and first years at Duke of several early members of the Economics Department faculty.

Folder

Correspondence, memoranda, minutes, reports, and printed materials from approximately two dozen committees De Vyver served on or chaired at Duke University. Several of the longer-term committees are represented by their own collections in the University Archives, and these related materials are noted in the folder entries below. Arranged in alphabetical order, as received.
