Known as the "Father of Negro History," Carter G. Woodson was a towering African American intellectual of the first half of the 20th century. Like his colleague, W. E. B. Du Bois, he was a recipient of the Ph.D. in history from Harvard in an age when most Americans scoffed at the notion of advanced education for African Americans. Like Du Bois, also, Woodson spent virtually his entire career outside academia, yet he exerted incalculable influence upon young black scholars (and ultimately upon whites, too). Papers of Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, 1915-1950 brings to light a large body of material that has never before been available to scholars. The collection comprises Woodson's papers, the records of the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, and the records of Associated Publishers. In cooperation with the Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History, UPA proudly offers the scholarly community the most detailed source on the career of Carter G. Woodson ever to emerge since Woodson' s death in 1950.
