This series contains the records of a survey Luria conducted with Jackson College graduates circa 1967-1971 regarding their attitudes to education, their careers, and family life. Materials include questionnaires, personality tests, form letters, permission slips, reference materials, reports, and computer coding materials.

Correspondence is often found along with the survey questionnaires. Students and alumnae wrote to express their opinions on the validity of the questions, to provide further detail on their college experiences and lives since graduation, and to request results of the personality tests and survey.

Although the survey ran approximately from 1967-1971 with some later follow-up, this series also contains earlier materials, such as index cards with alumnae contact information from 1933 and 1944. It also includes source materials for Luria's work on the formation of gender in children, and drafts of an article and source materials for her study on multiple personality disorder.


This series has been maintained in received order.
