One of the most important intellectuals and social critics in postwar America, Christopher Lasch was also a historian and well-respected teacher who left an indelible imprint on the life of the University of Rochester. He taught at the school for nearly twenty-five years, contributing immeasurably to the national reputation of its history department. The Christopher Lasch collection consists of over seventy boxes of Lasch's papers, including eleven boxes of general correspondence; thirty-five boxes of manuscripts, typescripts, notes, and correspondence relating to Lasch's major publications and speaking engagements; eleven boxes of academic lecture notes; four boxes of student files with correspondence and related material; and seven boxes of early typescripts, manuscripts and notes.
