Abstract:

Archivist, cultural heritage chief executive, and historian Thomas Cornell Battle was born on March 19, 1946 in Washington, D.C. Battle graduated from William McKinley High School in 1964 while working at Mt. Pleasant Public Library. At Howard University, Battle earned his B.A. degree in history in 1968. He earned his M.L.S. degree from the University of Maryland College of Information Studies in 1971; and his Ph.D. in American Studies from George Washington University in 1983. In 1986, Battle was named director of Howard’s Moorland-Spingarn Research Center. Battle with Paul Coates and Eleanor Des Virney Sinnette authored Black Bibliophiles and Collectors: Preservers of Black History in 1983. His research into Howard’s unique history led Battle to co-author Howard in Retrospect: Images of the Capstone with Clifford L. Muse, Jr. in 1995. Battle was the co-editor with Donna M. Wells of Legacy: Treasures of Black History, which was published in 2007.
