Ernest W. Burgess (1886-1966), sociologist. The Burgess Papers Addenda documents Burgess' career as a Professor of Sociology at the University of Chicago as well as his involvement in a variety of community, social, governmental and research organizations. The collection includes surveys, questionnaires, maps, diagrams, note cards, punch cards, recordings, microfilm, manuscripts, notes, offprints, articles, photographs, student records and administrative material, correspondence, advertisements, catalogues, magazines, newspaper clippings, and reports. It supplements the material contained in the original Burgess collection by providing raw data for research projects as well as by extending the date range of material and series already attested in the original Burgess collection. Particularly well represented are Burgess's survey research projects, his involvement with urban sociology during the depression and early years of WWII, as well as his extended career as a teacher at the University of Chicago.
