Series Overview

This subseries is limited to Du Bois' contributions to encyclopedias and other works of multiple authorship. Most were published between 1924-1962, but several were never published. There are five forewords contributed by Du Bois to books written by others between 1922 and 1962. The student papers are arranged in four groups: papers at Fisk around 1888; papers at Harvard, 1888-1891; student papers, largely on economics and politics, from the 1890s; and "Sketches, 1889-1896," which includes some travel notes, journals, notes on celebrations of his birthday, and some creative writing from his time at the University of Berlin.
