Abstract:

The James Weldon Johnson collection includes correspondence, literary manuscripts (by Johnson and others), printed materials, audio-visual materials, sheet music, legal documents, financial records, and general ephemera, dating from ca. 1886 to 1980 (bulk 1916-1930). A small portion of the collection is correspondence, including letters to and from family, friends, and associates in literary and other professional fields. Prominent correspondents include William Stanley Braithwaite, Edwin Arlington Robinson, Carl Van Vechten, Arna Bontemps, J. Rosamond Johnson, and Charles S. Johnson.

Also significant are typed drafts of Johnson's individual poems and speeches and copies of his pamphlets, programs, promotional matieral, and sheet music with his song lyrics. In addition, there are various tributes in journals and programs, and other materials honoring Johnson's life and work particularly relating to his association with the Harlem Renaissance movement and his work at Fisk University and for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Poeple. Printed materials collected by Johnson's family include catalogs, pamphlets, booklets, newspaper clippings, and other ephemera. An extensive collection of photographs depict Johnson; his wife, Grace Nail Johnson, their families and friends; and their country home, Five Acres, in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Among the important figures represented in the photographs are W.E.B. Du Bois, Walter White, and Carl Van Vechten (whose photography is also included).
