Abstract:

This collection includes correspondence, lecture notes, manuscripts of Willis' writings, and working notes. There is interesting material on Willis' time at Southern Methodist University, where he became the first black faculty member, and the later difficulties which led to his resignation.

Of special note are the lecture materials. There are notes on the the courses he taught in anthropology, history of anthropology, and black studies at S.M.U. and at summer sessions at Columbia University during the 1960s and 1970s. Of even greater value are the detailed course notes that he kept from anthropology lectures he attended at Columbia University during the 1940s and 1950s. There are lectures of Ruth Benedict, George Herzog, Alfred L. Kroeber, Ralph Linton, Julian Steward, William Duncan Strong, Charles Wagley, Gene Weltfish, and Leslie White. There is also material relating to his participation in the "Odyssey" television series on Franz Boas, drafts of articles and finished papers, and also letters of condolence upon his death.
