Scope and Contents

The Phillip Areeda Papers span the years 1927 to 1995, with the bulk of the material being created between 1958 and 1995. Documents represent both Professor Areeda's work at the Harvard Law School as well as service in the U.S. government. Material includes professional and personal correspondence, Harvard office records, lecture notes, book and article drafts, memos and audio-visual materials. In addition, there is a small amount of material from his time as a student at Harvard Law School.
Professor Areeda's work in the field of antitrust law is well documented in this collection by correspondence, teaching and writing notes. His work as a private consultant is also represented, though some of this material is restricted. Also of note is the scrapbook Areeda created that documents his career, with particular emphasis on his time spent as legal counsel to President Eisenhower.
