Inventory of the Papers of Edwin S. Cohen

Identifier: MSS-87-4

Scope and Contents

The vast majority of the documents (72 linear feet, or 160 boxes and 2 cartons) document his position as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Tax Policy and as Under Secretary of the Treasury for the Nixon administration. In addition there is considerable documentation of his work in private practice and teaching.

The organization of the collection reflects its original folder headings and arrangement, as well as the sequence in which it was transferred to the library. The files are divided in eight series: the first six relate to Cohen's tenure in the Treasury Department; the seventh concerns teaching and law practice in general; and the eighth (and earliest) series of documents concerns the area of his law practice devoted to the mutual fund industry.
