Lewis Adams Maverick papers, 1913-1968 | Southern Illinois University Special Collections Research Center
The Lewis Adams Maverick papers document his career as an economics professor at the University of California, Los Angeles and later Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Many of the records, particularly the unpublished economics book manuscripts and others works from the 1960s, were created after his return to Los Angeles upon retiring from SIUC in 1956. The papers emphasize Maverick’s interests in Chinese economic influence on Europe, Kuan Tzu (Guanzi or, Guan, Zhong, -645 B.C.), the history of economic theory, and the theory of production.
