Radcliffe's Murray Research Center Joins the Library System

The Henry A. Murray Research Center, the nation's largest social science data archive, has joined the Harvard University Library system as of September 1. Founded in 1976 by Radcliffe President Matina Souretis Horner, the Murray Center is an integral part of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

Dedicated to the study of lives over time, the Henry A. Murray Research Center promotes the use of existing social science data to explore human development in the context of social change. The Murray Center data archive is unique in that it holds many longitudinal studies, and that it includes not only quantitative data, but also qualitative materials such as case histories, open-ended interviews, and audio and video tapes. The Murray Center promotes research by providing scholars and students access to data, by offering workshops and courses on social science methodology, and by supporting research through its grants program.

The Murray Center is located in the former gymnasium building in Radcliffe Yard. For more information, call 5-8140 or visit the Murray Research Center's web site located at
