HOWARD: A Selected Bibliography about the University and Its People


De Leon, David, Negro History Bulletin


The Department of History at Howard University cannot be understood separate from the history of Howard University. History faculty members are a part of both the positive and negative experiences of the past and the present of this community. This bibliography draws upon that heritage. The history department, for example, is represented by scholars and teachers like Rayford Logan and Chancellor Williams in the past, and Joseph Harris in the present. The political science department ranges from Ralph Bunche to Ronald Walters; English from Arthur Davis to Toni Morrison; and anthropology from W. Montague Cobb to Michael Blakey. In every area, the contributions of the past are found in the present intellectual life of the University and what it offers to the world.

The bibliography, of course, is extremely selective. It is intended only to suggest the range of available sources. The Moorland-Spingarn Research Center (MSRC) does keep a record of publications by the Howard faculty, along with a record of official university publications. Both of these record groups constitute part of the MSRC's "Howardiana" Collection.

To identify the main content of each item in the bibliography, the following abbreviations may appear at the end of that item. If so, the abbreviation is enclosed in brackets.
