Biographical Note

Manning Nash (1924-2001) received a B.A. from Temple University in 1949 before coming to the University of Chicago to begin his graduate work. He completed his A.M in Anthropology in 1952, submitting a thesis titled "Rural to Urban Negro Migrants' Attitudes Towards Civil-Political Rights and Religion." His Ph.D., completed in 1955, was based on extensive fieldwork conducted in Guatemala and was later published as a book under the title Machine Age Maya: The Industrialization of a Guatemalan Community. After brief teaching appointments at the University of California in Los Angeles and the University of Washington, Nash returned to The University of Chicago and joined the faculty of the Graduate School of Business in 1957.

In the 1960s, Nash also held an appointment with the Committee on the Comparative Study of New Nations, which took as its focus the end of colonialism and the creation of new countries. During this period, Nash conducted field work in both the newly created Buddhist nation of Burma and Malaysia. He published his findings as The Golden Road to Modernity: Village Life in Contemporary Burma (1965) and Peasant Citizens: Politics, Religion, and Modernization in Kelantan, Malaysia (1974). In both studies, economic development and the place of religion within the context of social change figured prominently.

Nash joined the University of Chicago's Anthropology Department in 1968, serving as Chairman from 1988 to 1991. During this period in his career, his research took him to both Iran and Belize, where he studied religious practices among peasants and farmers. His major publications during this time, however, were comparative in scope: Unfinished Agenda: The Dynamics of Modernization in Developing Nations (1984) and The Cauldron of Ethnicity in the Modern World (1989).

Heralded as a pioneer in the creation of an intellectual framework for studying processes of economic and social modernization in what would eventually be termed the Third World, Nash died in Chicago in 2001.

Scope Note

The Manning Nash Papers contain 17.75 linear feet of material and roughly cover 1942-1988, though the bulk of the materials were generated between the mid 1950s and mid 1980s. The collection consists largely of Nash's research materials, which include: field notebooks, quantitative data, surveys, maps, reports, etc. These materials cover the breadth of Nash's career and relate to his work in Guatemala, Mexico, Burma, Malaysia, Iran, and Indonesia. Because this area of the collection is so expansive and detailed, there are many interesting collections of documents housed within it. The vast array of qualitative research data should prove interesting to all researchers concerned with the geographical areas in question, as well as to those whose interests lie more broadly with the role of religion in changing societies and the politics and economics of development and modernization.

In addition, the Papers house a small collection of teaching materials, mostly syllabi and class notes, and a moderately sized series devoted to Nash's writings. This series contains typescript and reprint copies of Nash's work, both published (articles, book proofs) and published (talks, conference papers), as well as related correspondence. The collection also includes a series of general files in which materials unrelated to the established taxonomy of the collection can be found. Finally, a small series of restricted materials contains student grade sheets and recent University of Chicago administrative documents.

Series III: Research

The research materials housed in this series cover a variety of Nash's projects: Guatemala and Middle America, Mexico (Chiapas), Burma, Malaysia, Iran, and Indonesia. Each of these geographical areas has been given a subseries of its own. Subseries 7, General files, includes materials without a specific geographic identification, but these materials may be related to other files, particularly those on Chiapas. Nash's field notes are extensive and include everything from interviews, observations, and surveys to census data, maps, and quantitative data tables. It is often unclear if notes were intended for research/writing or for teaching. Researchers should be sure to examine both Series I: Teaching and Series III: Research.
