Ida B. Wells-Barnett and American Reform, 1880-1930

By Patricia A. Schechter | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book would not exist without the institutional and personal support I have been so fortunate to receive. A year-long fellowship from the Pew Program for the Study of Religion in American History in 1997-98 afforded me precious writing time. Grants from the North Caroliniana Society, Portland State University, and the City University of New York's Research Foundation underwrote major pieces of my research. An article from my dissertation, "Unsettled Business: Ida B. Wells Against Lynching or, How Antilynching Got Its Gender, ” received the 1998 Judith Lee Ridge Article Prize from the Western Association of Women Historians. Special appreciation is due to those people who shared their personal archives and family histories with me. I am extremely grateful to M. V. Blatchford, the late Roberta Church, Benjamin C. Duster, Frances D. Hooks, Dr. Clementine McConico Skinner, and Albert Lee Kreiling. Paul Lee's astounding generosity and meticulous research vastly enriched this project. Spotting my interest in the Chicago Municipal Court on the internet, Michael Willrich graciously offered guidance and citations for the Daley Center records.

I must thank those scholars who helped create a sense of community and shared purpose despite our dispersed academic lives. Several pieces of this book benefited from feedback at conferences. I am grateful to Rosalyn Terborg-Penn for inviting me to participate in the 1994 American History Association (AHA) panel "New Graduate Work on African American Women's History” and for encouragement from Ellen
