Abstract:

75 reels of microfilm (positive) (7 boxes of separated hard copy items have been boxes; they are duplicates and were received at the same time as the other items in the accession). The archives contain approximately 150,000 items that primarily document the activities for the 1928-48 period of the fund's existence. A reorganization occurred in 1928 and Edwin Embree became president of the fund that had been managed by its founder until then. Items include correspondence, reports, speeches, articles, and other printed items, photographs, scrapbooks, rosters of recipients of fellowships and scholarships, as well as other applicants. Numerous individuals of note became recipients of the scholarship or fellowship.

The Center holds papers of at least two of them; namely, Charles S. Johnson and Elizabeth Catlett. A special listing of Negro scholarship awardees is available, and institutions for which the Center holds records that were awarded grants for projects include Dillard University and Flint-Goodridge Hospital. Correspondents include members of the Rosenwald Family, Edwin Embree, Charles S. Johnson, and many others.
