Rapkin, Chester

Chester Rapkin Collection (113), Architect, 1918-2001

Chester Rapkin's civil service employment included the Federal Home Loan Bank, the National Housing Agency, and the National Bureau of Economic Research. Rapkin's research and publishing applied highly disciplined analysis to the urgent social and economic issues of American cities in the second half of the twentieth century, such as affordable housing, urban decay, racial discrimination, homelessness and the plight of the displaced elderly and the "deinstitutionalized" mentally ill.

The collection contains comprehensive holdings of Rapkin's writings: publications, reports and papers 1943-1994.
