Annotated and Indexed Subjects

Scope and content:

The Annotated and Indexed Subjects subseries consists of alphabetized subject files on research topics compiled by Robert Hill. It includes Hill's annotated and indexed photocopies of articles from Garvey's newspapers: The Negro World, The Black Man, and his monthly magazine The Blackman. Annotated photocopies of microfilm, printed material, and transcripts from newspapers covering biographic information on public figures involved with government policy, business operations, and activist teachings and activities can also be found here. This subseries contains Garvey's speeches and writings from his publications as well as those of his contemporaries, such as W.E.B. Du Bois, Henrietta Vinton Davis, and William Pickens. Also included are documentation from the UNIA concerning its divisions and finances, the Black Star Line and its officers, the Bureau of Investigation (later the Federal Bureau of Investigation) on surveillance of Garvey, and Garvey's mail fraud trial.

Notes on book elements such as acknowledgements, annotation lists, appendices, bibliographies and biographies, duplicate and excluded documents, introductions, and lists of mentioned individuals are in this subseries as well.
