Walther Lederer came to the U.S. in 1933 and, after completing postgraduate work at the University of Iowa, held teaching positions at Hunter College in New York, the University of Delaware in Newark, and Queens College in New York. In 1942, Lederer accepted his first position in Washington, D.C. as an economist for the Board of Economic Welfare. In October 1945, he moved to the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Business Economics, Balance of Payments Division, and in May 1954 became Chief of the Division. Lederer continued in that position until 1969.

This collection contains publications of Walther Lederer and of his uncle, Emil Lederer, correspondence between Walther and his first wife, Ruth Klein Lederer, 1929-1931, and biographical documents.

The collection is unprocessed and is likely disorganized. Individual items may be difficult to find.
