Arrangement
These records were obtained by the University Archives and Records Center at four different stages, the last being sometime after Barber's death in 1997. The earlier accessions were organized and needed little attention other than adding a series designation. The latter accession was in no order, thus some material was pulled and interfiled with the earlier files, while other sections of the material were sorted and labeled. This accession was loosely processed to the folder level. Because the bulk of these materials were left in the original order, applying any kind of series description to them is difficult. Thus, the following series designations have been made and a series listing is included below, but the material is not in series order.

Collection Overview

Biography / History
Pennsylvania native Richard L. Barber was born in 1920. He attended public schools in North East, Pennsylvania, then earned a B.A. from Ohio University in 1940 in Philosophy and Mathematics. He was on active duty with the U.S. Navy from 1942 to 1945, then completed thirty-five years of service as an officer in the Naval Reserve, retiring as a Captain in 1980. He earned an M.A. from Indiana University in 1948 and a PhD from Yale University in 1950, both in Philosophy. Before coming to the University of Louisville in 1959 as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, he taught at Indiana, Yale, and Tulane Universities. After serving as dean for thirteen years, Barber became chair of the Philosophy Department. He was known for his interest in students and his scholarship and teaching in the field of professional and medical ethics. He became an associate in the School of Medicine in the 1980s, designing and teaching courses in the Medical Humanities and Medical Ethics until his death in 1997.
Scope and Content
This 23.5 linear foot collection, dates from 1959 to 1997. The bulk of the collection documents Barber's teaching and administrative work at the University of Louisville along with his professional activity outside the university.
