Activities or topics covered by these records relate to banking, family and friends, personal property and finances, research, teaching, and writings. The Herman B Wells Papers are organized into thirteen series: General correspondence; Family records; Affiliations and professional organizations; Awards; Biographical records and personal documents; Education; Financial matters; Personal property; Teaching; Banking; Writings; German Assignment and Audio/Visual materials.

The first series, General correspondence, spans the period from 1924-1998 and contains primarily correspondence to and from Wells, but often also includes clippings, pamphlets and other ephemera related to various topics. Prominent correspondents include: Frank O. Beck, Ward G. Biddle, Herman T. Briscoe, William Lowe Bryan, George Cook, John W. Cravens, Cecilia Hennel Hendricks, Paul McNutt, Winfred Merrill, Sherman Minton, John Scott, Ralph D. Shoemaker, John Stempel, James Woodburn, and Dr. Wells’ parents, Granville and Anna Wells. The files are arranged alphabetically by author or subject.

Family records, the second series, spans the period from 1819 to 1982 and contains records related to Wells’ parents and to family history. The subseries on Wells’ parents, Granville Wells and Anna Bernice Wells, includes personal and biographical records for each, as well as records relating to their deaths. The family history and genealogical records subseries contains correspondence related to Wells’ genealogy, including family histories, pedigree charts, and records of genealogical research done by Wells or his relatives. The Endecott Family History and 19th century land documents for Wells’ ancestors are stored in the Archives’ Oversized collections. Please see staff for more details. The files in the Family records series are arranged alphabetically.

The third series, Affiliations and professional organizations, spans the period from 1927 to 2000 and includes records on the various organizations with which Wells was affiliated, such as correspondence about meetings, invitations to various events, and requests for membership fees or for donations to various causes. Prominent organizations or affiliations represented in this series include: Sigma Nu Fraternity, the Methodist Church, and the Indiana Academy of Sciences. The Sigma Nu records contain a great deal of correspondence concerning the new house for the Beta Chapter to be built near the IU campus, the Grand Chapter, and the Educational Foundation. The files are arranged alphabetically by organization.

Awards, the fourth series, spans the period from 1922 to 1999, and consists of records documenting the various awards Wells received before, during, and after his tenure as president of Indiana University. The series is subdivided into two subseries: plaques and oversized items, and certificates or other paper records related to awards. The first box of plaques is a normal record center box, but the rest of the plaques and oversized items are stored in flat boxes. The letter-sized certificates and other paper records are stored in a records center box at the end of the series. Wells received a variety of different awards including: Honorary Citizenship to New Orleans, honorary membership into several fraternal organizations, and distinguished services awards from organizations such as the Indiana Optometric Association. Prominent items in this series include several honorary degrees which Wells received from various universities and colleges, including Butler University, University of Louisville, Earlham College, and Indiana State College (now Indiana State University), as well as several awards from different departments or organizations at Indiana University, such as the School of Business. This series is arranged alphabetically within each box, but awards from the same organization may not all be stored together due to size and preservation concerns.

The fifth series, Biographical records and personal documents, spans the period from 1934 to 2000, and includes biographical statements or articles about Wells and various other personal documents such as his driver’s license, passport, and will. Several versions and drafts of Wells’ will are present, with the most recent being from 1997. The Emergency Call List is a file of documents distributed among Wells’ staff and the administration of the University, detailing procedures in case of emergency involving Wells’ health. This series is arranged alphabetically.

Education and schoolwork, spanning the period from 1906 to 1927, is the sixth series in this collection. This series consists of records related to Wells’ education from the time he was a schoolboy in the early 20th century to his days in college at Indiana University. Included in this series are a “Universal Primer” booklet that was possibly used by Wells as a schoolboy to learn how to read and write; a copy of Wells’ senior yearbook from Lebanon (Ind.) High School; outlines created for and a copy of Wells' Masters thesis, "Service Charges for Small or So-Called Country Banks" ; lecture notes and exams from a Business Finances class Wells took with Dr. William A. Rawles; and notes on William Lowe Bryan's lectures to students in the Ethics Department. Also included in the series are Wells’ diplomas from high school to graduate school, which are stored separately in the Archives’ oversized collection. Please ask Archives staff for more details. This series is arranged alphabetically.

The seventh series, Financial matters, spans the period from 1906 to 2001, and is further sub-divided into five sub-series: General, Bills and receipts, Contributions and gifts, Insurance, and Investments. The General subseries consists mostly of personal financial records and bank statements, as well as several files related to income taxes and tax returns. Bills and receipts were created primarily during Wells’ later years and include copies of bills and receipts for various purchases, from candy and meat to gasoline and furniture. The final two subseries include records related to Wells’ investments in life and health insurance, and in various stock ventures. This series is arranged alphabetically.

Personal property, the eighth series, spans the period from 1835 to 2000 and consists of records related to Wells’ property and personal possessions. Prominent topics include records related to Wells’ art, antique collections, farm real estate, and the different houses he owned and lived in throughout Bloomington and the surrounding area, including the Woodburn House, Wells House on Tenth Street, at the Meadowood retirement community, and for a house on Second Street. Several architectural records for these homes were pulled and added to the Archive’s Architectural Records collection. Please ask staff for more details. Inventories of his possessions, compiled at different times usually for legal purposes, are included in the series. There are also records related to houseboys, housekeepers and cooks who lived with and assisted Wells. This series is arranged alphabetically.

The ninth series, Teaching, includes records from Wells’ teaching career at Indiana University during the late 1920s-1930s. Wells teaching duties at IU consisted of the following appointments: Graduate Student and Assistant, Department of Economics, 1927-1928; Instructor, Department of Economics, 1930-31 to 1932-33; and Professor and Dean, School of Business Administration, 1935-36 to 1936-37. This series is further divided into two subseries: Economics courses and Business courses and advising. The Economics courses subseries includes most prominently lecture notes and other teaching materials for the following courses taught by Wells: Economics 1b and E101a & b: Political Economy; Economics 102a & b: Economic History of England and the United States; Economics E214: Corporation Economics; and, Economics E229: Social and Economic Control of Business. This subseries is arranged numerically by course number, and by lecture number within each course. The Business courses and advising subseries consists of lectures and papers for some of Wells’ courses on Business Administration and other business related topics while Wells was Professor and Dean of the School of Business. This series is arranged numerically by course number and alphabetically by subject.

Banking, the tenth series, spans the period from 1928-1962, and is further divided into four subseries: Study Commission for Indiana Financial Institutions, Indiana Bankers Association, Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis, and Other Banking Activities. Wells served as Secretary and Research Director on the Study Commission for Indiana Financial Institutions from 1931-1933. It was a state appointed commission to study county bank failures in Indiana and recommend reforms. Arranged alphabetically, this subseries contains correspondence, report typescripts and notes, and subject files. From 1928-1931, Wells served as Field Secretary for the Indiana Bankers Association. This subseries consists primarily of addresses by Wells in relation to this position, as well as some subject files on topics such as credit bureaus and service charges. Wells was a member of the Board of Directors Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis from 1936 to 1971, and served the majority of this time (1940-1971) as Chairman of the Board. This subseries contains correspondence, minutes of Directors meetings and Executive Committee meetings, and reports, and is arranged chronologically. Please note that post-1962 records on Wells activities on the Board can be found in the Records of the University Chancellor, Public Service Record Series. The final subseries, other banking activities, includes records relating to various other banking organizations and conferences, including American Bankers Association, Federal Reserve System, and a conference in Washington on Bank Statement Standardization. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Writings is the eleventh series in this collection. This series spans the period from 1893 to 1986 and includes several examples of writings and speeches by Wells. The series is divided into three subseries: Being Lucky (Wells’ autobiography), Articles and other publications, and Speeches. Being Lucky makes up the vast majority of this series, and it consists of notes, research materials, drafts, transcripts, audio tapes, correspondence, and other materials related to preparation of Being Lucky: Reminiscences and Reflections by Herman B Wells, which was assembled in the 1970s, and published by the IU Press in 1980. The subseries also includes material created by the Chancellor's administrative assistant Dorothy Collins and researchers John L. Haste and David Warriner. This subseries is arranged into the following categories: 1) Planning; 2) Notes and drafts by chapter; 3) Research materials; and 4) Audio tapes. Files for Chapter XVIII "A New Trip and a New Awareness" were missing at the time of reprocessing. The articles and other publications subseries consists primarily of writings by Wells on various topics, particularly higher education. Articles of interest include "Cooperation and Coordination of Federal Supervisory Agencies," "How to Succeed as a University President without Really Trying," and "Higher Education Faces a Crucial Decade," written in 1956. Also included is a file of correspondence and drafts related to books that Wells planned to write. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by title or subject. The speeches subseries consists of notes, outlines, and drafts for speeches Wells gave from 1933 to 1984 during the years when he was not serving as President of Indiana University (for Wells’ speeches as President of IU, see Collection C137). Many of these speeches are related to the banking industry. Also included are speeches on the State of the University while Wells served as Interim President in 1968, the dedication of the Elisabeth Ball room at the Lilly Library, and the eulogy given at the funeral of former IU President William Lowe Bryan in 1955. This subseries is arranged chronologically.

The twelfth series, German Assignment, consists of records created by Wells in late 1947 during his six-month leave of absence as President of IU to serve as Director of the Education and Cultural Relations Division of the Office of Military Government for Germany, U.S. (OMGUS). During this time he also served as General Lucius D. Clay's cultural affairs advisor. The series includes writings and reports, a diary, and subject files, but consists primarily of correspondence with Indiana University, fellow OMGUS personnel, and individuals seeking help immigrating or with locating displaced persons. The series is divided into three subseries: Correspondence, Writings and reports, and Subject files. Correspondence constitutes the largest subseries and spans the period from 1947 to 1950. It is arranged alphabetically by surname. Significant correspondents include: William Lowe Bryan, General Lucius D. Clay, Peter A. Fraenkel, J.A. Franklin, Alonzo G. Grace, Walter Greenough, George B. McKibbin, Edward H. Litchfield, Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson, Fenwick T. Reed, Catherine Royer, and Wells’ mother, Anna Bernice Wells. The correspondence in this subseries was sometimes cross-referenced by President Wells’ secretary, with references pointing the user to letters housed in subject files or under another name as well as to letters in Wells’ Presidential records (Collection C213). References that direct users to items housed outside the collection are identified in the container list. The second subseries, writings and reports, spans the years from 1947 to 1948 and is arranged chronologically, but many of the items are undated. It includes a directive on constitutional reform in German institutions of higher learning, a memorandum regarding the Cultural Affairs Program, a report on Wells’ trip to Washington, and Max Rheinstein’s report on the U.S. education mission to Germany. Subject files span the years from 1947 to 1952 and are arranged alphabetically by folder title. Subjects or types of material include: applications for employment, President Wells’ arrest by Russian troops in East Berlin, newspaper clippings, Wells’ diary from his first trip to Germany, German cultural exchanges and re-education, places to visit, and requests to help persons enter the U.S.

The final series, audio visual materials, spans from the period from 1988 to 1998 and consists of a small amount of VHS video tapes related to Herman B Wells. This collection of tapes came from a larger collection found in Wells’ office in Owen Hall, but only the tapes related directly to Wells were included in this series. Items of interest include a tape of Dan Quayle in lieu of a transcript, the Ernst and Young Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony, an interview on early Indiana banking with Blaine H. Wiseman, and an oral history on the evolution of Woodburn House. This series is arranged alphabetically.
