From the Collection: The collection of political scientist and Johns Hopkins University president, Frank Johnson Goodnow, includes correspondence, lectures, articles, clippings, printed books and memorabilia. The collection consists of about 12,000 items and spans the years 1880 to 1940. The majority of the material is Goodnow's correspondence, but there are also lectures, addresses, writings and printed material.

Of particular interest is the correspondence between Goodnow and Lord Bryce, the eminent British jurist, historian, and diplomat. These letters relate to Goodnow's research on the Tweed Ring and are filed in Box 26.

Materials relating to Goodnow's interest in China are together in Box 25. The final series consists of awards, honors, and appointments.
