Abstract:

The paper of the brilliant and influential writer, orator, educator, critic, and political activist in Harlem during the early decades of the 20th century.

The collection is composed of the personal papers--correspondence, manuscripts, documents, newspaper clippings, diaries, scrapbooks, memorabilia, photographs and books--of Hubert H. Harrison, an early 20th century African American activist, orator, writer, intellectual, and editor. The papers range from his early years in the United States to his death in 1927.

The bulk of the collection is printed material, mostly clippings and books. There is a substantial correspondence series which includes letters by many prominent writers and individuals such as John E. Bruce, Clarence Darrow, W.E.B. DuBois, Claude Mc Kay, H. L. Mencken, Eugene O'Neill, William Pickens, Adam Clayton Powell, Sr., A. Philip Randolph, Andy Razafkeriefo (Razaf), Joel A. Rogers, T. Lothrop Stoddard, William Monroe Trotter, Walter White, Carter G. Woodson, and Monroe N. Work.

Of particular note is the extensive collection of writings, both original manuscripts as well as clippings from newspapers and magazines by Hubert H. Harrison. In addition, there are numerous scrapbooks compiled by Harrison on a wealth of topics, as well as his diaries.

Many unique and important photographs of Harrison and his family, friends, and associates are contained in the collection along with a notable collection of books, evincing the breath and depth of Harrison's reading, as well as his interest in book collecting.

Harrison's active career as a lecturer and speaker is demonstrated by the numerous broadsides and pamphlets.
