Abstract:

The collection consists of the papers of Paul Carter Harrison from 1939-2016, including correspondence and personal papers, writings by Harrison and others, subject files, printed material, photographs and audiovisual material. The collection documents Harrison's numerous professional roles as playwright, director, producer, screenwriter, scholar, and professor, as well as his many collaborations with other artists, including composers and musicians such as Buster Davis, Julius Hemphill, T.S. Galloway, and Clyde S. Batton, as well as writer Odie Hawkins and director Gilbert Moses. Correspondence in the collection is both personal and professional in nature and includes letters between Harrison and his daughter Fonteyn Harrison and his previous wives: Dutch actress Ria Vroemen and author Carla van Splunteren. Writings by Harrison contain typescript drafts, synopses, notes, and performance files of Harrison's plays, musicals, and operas as well as manuscript and printed scores and sheet music for various performances. Also present are typescripts, synopses, and treatments for Harrison's screenplays, and a small number of teleplay typescripts. Other writings by Harrison primarily include drafts of Harrison's articles, essays and reviews concerning race and the black theater, as well as drafts of book-length works and compilations edited by Harrison. Writings by others include articles and essays about Harrison and works directed or produced by Harrison, as well as plays, essays, musicals, reviews, and poetry sent to and collected by Harrison. Of particular interest are essays by Amiri Baraka and Ed Bullins as well as a typescript of August Wilson's play Jitney. Subject files contain material on subjects of personal and professional interest to Harrison primarily relating to African American theater and the arts; project and grant proposal files relating to Harrison's writings and black theatre; and teaching files containing syllabi, course notes, and other teaching material. Printed material includes reprints of published articles and plays written by Harrison as well as published articles, interviews, reviews, and event programs about Harrison. Photographs contain images of Harrison, Laurence Fishburne, Roscoe Lee Brown, Oliver Lee Jackson, Salome Jens, Duane Jones, Melba Moore, Larry Neal, and Charles (Chuck) Stewart, as well as Harrison's parents Paul and Thelma Harrison and his daughter Fontayne Thelma Harrison. Audiovisual material contains sound, video, and film recordings of Paul Carter Harrison's theatre productions, as well as recordings of conferences and seminars that Harrison attended.
