Biography of Frank W. Notestein

Frank W. (Wallace) Notestein contributed significantly to the science of demography and to a better understanding of
population problems in world affairs, notably through his work on family planning and population control. Born in Alma,
Michigan in 1902, Notestein received his undergraduate degree from the College of Wooster in 1923. He earned his PhD
in Economics from Cornell University in 1927 and was an Economics instructor there from 1926-1927. From 1927
through 1928, Notestein worked abroad as a fellow of the Social Sciences Research Council. He began work for the
Milbank Memorial Fund, an endowed national foundation that supports nonpartisan analysis, study, and research on
significant issues in health policy, as a research assistant and then became a member of its technical staff from 1929
through 1936, working on differential fertility, the total genetic contribution to the next generation.
In 1936, Notestein began as a Lecturer at Princeton University. At the same time, he developed and directed the Office
of Population Research (OPR) at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs with funding from
the Milbank Memorial Fund. The OPR focused on the study of the interrelation of population growth and change in
underdeveloped areas and on the social and psychological factors affecting fertility in the American family. By 1941,
Notestein had attained full professorship as the Director of the OPR and as a professor of Demography, holding both
titles until his resignation in 1959. Notestein remained as “Acting Director” of the OPR for the fall 1959 term while his
successor, Ansley J. Coale, took a sabbatical. After Notestein’s resignation, he remained involved at Princeton as a
“Visiting Senior Demographer” through 1963. In addition, he was a “Visiting Lecturer in Public and International Affairs,” 
at Princeton beginning in 1968. He maintained both positions until June 1982.
Notestein’s resignation from full professorship and director of the OPR at Princeton allowed him to become the president
of the Population Council (PC) until 1968. The PC was founded in 1952 by John D. Rockefeller III to study and promote
understanding of the scientific aspects of population change throughout the world by fostering scientific theory and
research in social, economic and medical fields. Notestein had been a trustee of the PC since its establishment.
Along with Notestein’s positions at Princeton and the PC, he was the organizer and first director of the Population
Division of the United Nations, 1946-1948. In 1955 he advised India’s Minister of Health on population policies and
beginning a population center for training and research on demography in India. He chaired the Technical Advisory
Committee on Population for the 1950 United States Census and was a member of the 1960 United States Census
Committee.
Notestein was a co-editor of the Population Index, a bibliography of population literature that was the official
publication of the Population Association of American and the OPR from 1936-1957. He co-authored Controlled Fertility
in 1940 and The Future Population of Europe and the Soviet Union in 1944, as well as authoring numerous journal
publications. Notestein was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Association for the
Advancement of Science, the American Sociological Association, and the American Statistical Association. He was a
member of the American Eugenics Society, the American Philosophical Society, the Council on Foreign Relations, the
International Statistical Institute, the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population, the Population
Association of America, and the Century Association.
Notestein married Daphne Limbach in 1927; they had no children. He passed away in 1983.

Description

The Frank W. Notestein Papers document his position as a leader in the field of population and fertility research through
his involvement at Princeton University as the Director of the Office of Population Research and as a faculty member
(although the papers do not include substantial information on his classes or students), as well as through his work
with the Population Council and the Population Association of America. It also documents his significant advisory role to
both the United Nations and the United States Government. The Frank W. Notestein Papers include mostly typewritten
letters and notes to and from Notestein, as well as some handwritten information, including demographic research, and
typewritten and printed copies of papers and speeches. Dr. Ansely J. Coale, Notestein’s successor at the OPR, also
contributed significantly to this group of papers through his own correspondence and reports.

(8.8 Linear Feet in 21 boxes)

Subseries 1A: Alphabetical Correspondence, 1930-1977


(7.8 Linear Feet in 18.5 boxes)
Subseries Description
The Alphabetical Correspondence Subseries includes files compiled by Notestein, Ansley J. Coale, and their
secretaries. Files are titled by organization and individual names, or subject; those labeled only with a letter (e.g.,
“A”) include correspondence from individuals whose last name begins with that letter or organizational titles
beginning with that letter. Some cross-referencing was provided within the files, handwritten on green sheets of
paper, presumably by a secretary. The majority of these files contain business correspondence to and from
Notestein, with a large percentage being copies of his outgoing correspondence. The correspondence details
Notestein’s consultation and research work, his critiques of the work of other demographers and scientists, reports
and speeches by Notestein and others, as well as the business of the Office of Population Research and the
Population Council. Some of the correspondence is also to and from Ansley J. Coale, who took over Notestein’s
duties at the Office of Population Research after 1959. Notable correspondents include Dr. Irene Taeuber, Frank
Lorimer, Frederick Osburn, and Bernard Berelson, all noted leaders in the field of population research. Incoming
correspondence included many requests for reviews and commentary, as well as requests for information about
fellowship programs and assistance for demographic studies at Princeton.
