Abstract Or Scope
Anna Julia Cooper was an American author, educator, sociologist, speaker, Black Liberation activist, and one of the most prominent African-American scholars in United States history. Collection comprises 9 items from and to Anna Julia Cooper regarding the disposition and placement of the Charlotte Forten Grimke diaries and her desire to bring all five of Grimke's diaries into a single repository. Cooper was likely Grimke's literary executor and was trying to obtain three of five diaries from the possession of Prof. Ray A. Billington, professor of history at Smith College and Northwestern University. Billington tried to convince Copper to place all five diaries in one place (either the Library of Congress or Howard University). Billington also corresponded with Dorothy Porter, head of the negro collection at Howard University, and Rayford Logan, professor of history at Howard University, to inform them of his attempts to persuade Cooper to place the diaries there. Cooper eventually decided Howard University was the place where the diaries should be preserved. In addition, there are three letters regarding Cooper's endorsement of the appointment of Charles Wesley to the Washington, D.C., School Board in 1936. Also, there is a program for a religious service held for Frelinghuysen University in 1934.
