The materials in this collection were created from 1890 to 1993, with the majority dating from after 1968. The materials in this collection document Sachar's involvement with Brandeis during his years as Chancellor of the university. The bulk of the materials consists of a large collection of correspondence with both individuals and institutions regarding personal topics, speaking engagements, fundraising, and other university-related concerns. Also included are materials on financial topics, including the Sachar Fund and donor relations, as well as Sachar's personal files on many university events, programs, and figures. Prominent among these are the materials dealing with later Brandeis presidents, various international programs, and the Sachar International Center. Lastly, there is a small selection of speeches written and given by Sachar at his many public speaking engagements; many of these include his notes and drafts.
