Collection Development -- Pioneers in Survey Research Collections (Public Polling)
The collection is a collaborative project of two University of Connecticut research organizations, the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research and the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center. The goal of the project is to assemble, preserve and provide access to the professional and personal papers of the founders of the modern public opinion survey profession.
The papers, housed in the Dodd Research Center, and the related polling data, housed in the Roper Center, represents an extraordinary opportunity to bring together on one campus the unique data and survey collections with the personal papers of the pioneers of the public polling community.
Archives & Special Collections collects:
- Personal papers of individual leaders in the polling industry, many of whom are closely connected with the Roper Center for Public Polling
For inquiries about the collection or possible donations please contact the curator, Betsy Pittman or (860) 486-4507.
