Abstract:

Papers of prominent African Americans, correspondence, writings, research files, business records, and other papers relating to Woodson's leadership of the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH) and to scholarship and publishing in the field of African and African-American history.

Part I, 1803-1936 (bulk 1830-1927), was assembled by Woodson who collected and preserved primary sources on African American history as executive director of the ASNLH and editor of its principal organ, the Journal of Negro History. Includes the papers of John T. Clark, officer of the Urban League of Pittsburgh; Whitefield McKinlay, real estate broker and collector of customs, Washington, D.C.; and Benjamin T. Tanner, bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church; and early papers of Woodson. Consists of correspondence, diaries, addresses, legal documents, newspaper clippings, and other papers concerning African American history, the Journal of Negro History, appointment of African Americans to federal office, race relations, racial discrimination, employment opportunities, state and national politics, and business matters. Also includes addresses, diaries, clippings, records of community organizations and other associations, and primary documents relating to the slavery era such as bills of sale, certificates of freedom and "free colored" ledgers.

Persons represented in Part I include John Edward Bruce, George Washington Carver, William Demos Crum, Frederick Douglass, Christian A. Fleetwood, Timothy Thomas Fortune, Richard Theodore Greener, Henry Cabot Lodge, John Roy Lynch, Medill McCormick, Hiram Rhoades Revels, Theodore Roosevelt, Julius Rosenwald, Emmett J. Scott, Robert Smalls, Frederick Starr, Melville Elijah Stone, Booker T. Washington, and Charles Young.

Part II, 1856-1974, relates chiefly to operations of the ASNLH and its publishing arm, Associated Publishers. Includes material concerning the Journal of Negro History; Negro History Bulletin; an unpublished Encyclopedia Africana, a comprehensive guide to African peoples, leaders, and luminaries in Africa, the U.S., South America, the Carribean, and worldwide; and W.E.B. Du Bois's project, Encyclopedia of the Negro, funded by the Phelps-Stokes Fund. Also includes primary documents relating to African-American life and history during the slavery, Reconstruction, and "New South" eras. Other subjects include Francis J. Grimké's personal finances and his ministry as pastor of the Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C.; the service of the 368th Regiment during World War I; and efforts of "red caps," railroad service workers, to organize.

Correspondents include Horace Mann Bond, Sterling Allen Brown, Wendell Phillips Dabney, Victor Daly, W.E.B. Du Bois, J. Stanley Durkee, John Hope Franklin, Edward Franklin Frazier, Edwin Bancroft Henderson, Luther B. Jackson, Rayford Whittingham Logan, Lewis B. Moore, Jules Rosemond, Francis Butler Simkins, Arthur B. Spingarn, William Warren Sweet, Alrutheus Ambush Taylor, and Charles H. Wesley.
