Abstract:

Papers of Fishel, an historian, director of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin (1959-1969), president of Heidelberg College at Tiffin, Ohio (1969-1980), and director of the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center at Fremont, Ohio (1980-1988).

Included are personal correspondence including extensive letters regarding his service in the Navy during World War II, professional correspondence, speeches and writings, and papers pertaining to activities for Oberlin College, the First Congregational Church of Madison, the Friends of the Urban League in Madison, and the University YMCA. Many of the speeches were delivered as a representative of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin or as president of Heidelberg College. The writings reflect his interest and knowledge of African-American history and contemporary racial issues. Included is correspondence with Benjamin Quarles, co-author with Fishel of "The Negro American." Photographs in this collection include images of Fishel during his naval service, portraits, and group pictures. There is also a caricature of Fishel when he became director of the Society.
