The collection documents Harvey "Chet" Krentzman's professional work as a small business consultant and instructor, spanning the years 1953-1992.

Included are notes, correspondence, brochures, lecture material, articles about Harvey Krentzman and his writing and testimony.
Harvey "Chet" Krentzman graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in Engineering in 1949. He received his MBA from the Harvard Business School in 1952, and in 1954 he established Advanced Management Associates, Inc., a management company providing consulting services to small businesses. In 1959 Harvey Krentzman was invited to start the Small Business Institute at the Northeastern University School of Continuing Education. From the 1960s through the early 1980s, he conducted a number of small business workshops under the sponsorship of Northeastern University, Babson College, Bentley College, and the Smaller Business Association of New England. Because Harvey Krentzman was a recognized regional and national expert on the challenges faced by small businesses, he gave testimony at the United States Senate's Select Committee on Small Business in 1962 and in 1971. He served as treasurer of Temple Mishkan Tefila, and he was an active alumnus of Northeastern University, serving as a corporate member from 1975, until his death in 1992, and as a member of the Board of Trustees from 1983 to 1992.
