During his fifty-one year tenure with the Library of Congress, Daniel Murray, black bibliographer and historian, carried out exhaustive research into the varied achievements of the black population. This work was later to form the foundation for the Library's "Colored Author Collection."
Within this microfilm edition of his papers, researchers into black studies will find primary material under such headings as Lynchings, Ethiopic Literature, and Women's Nature, as well as biographical information on many black authors, leaders, composers, and artists.
