William Dorsey's Philadelphia and Ours: On the Past and Future of the Black City in America

By Roger Lane | Go to book overview

Notes

Items from the Dorsey Collection (see Appendix I) will be footnoted with the number of the scrapbook first, then the page number, then the date and title of the newspaper or other item. Philadelphia papers will not be given place names. Thus "127.85 Record 12/9/79 is the Philadelphia Record, Dec. 9, 1879, found in scrapbook number 127, page 85. Note that in many cases either the title or the date of the item may not be available, so that it might be "127.85 12/9/79," or 127.85 Record -/-/79." In a very few cases the scrapbooks themselves are either unnumbered or unpaginated. Reprinted materials will be indicated with the paper from which they were clipped, and an asterisk before the one it was taken from, as "127.85 * Chicago Interocean in Record 12/9/79. Newspaper items from the Dorsey files will be noted as, e.g., "Files, John Smith," with papers given as in forms above.

References to Philadelphia standard census data will not be footnoted. Biographical information, if not taken from contemporary sources, may come from the most convenient rather than the fullest source, notably Rayford W. Logan and Michael R. Winston , eds., Dictionary of American Negro Biography ( New York: W. W. Norton, 1982), which will be noted as DANB. References to the Philadelphia Tribune from 1912 to 1914--prior issues burned in fire--are to the historical columns of W. Carl Bolivar, collected and kindly loaned to me by Harry C. Silcox.


Introduction to Part I
1.
W. E. B. Du Bois, The Philadelphia Negro, A Social Study (Millwood, N.Y.: Kraus-Thompson, 1973, orig. pub. 1899); among the distinguished recent histories of the city are, for the earlier years, Gary Nash, Forging Freedom: The Formation of Philadelphia's Black Community 1720-1840 ( Cambridge, Harvard Univ. Press, 1980), and for the most recent the moving and partly autobiographical work of Allen B. Ballard , One More Day's Journey: The Story of a Family and a People ( New York: McGraw-Hill, 1984). Special mention must go to the Philadelphia Social History Project, under the direction of Theodore Hershberg during the 1970s, whose exhaustive studies based on the manuscript census, despite severe flaws in the census, have been helpful to all later researchers. See Theodore Hershberg, ed., Philadelphia: Work, Space, Family and Group Experience in the Nineteenth Century: Essays Towards an Interdisciplinary History of the City ( New York and Oxford: Oxford Univ. Press, 1981). Harrison W. Wayman, "The American Negro Historical Society," in Colored American Magazine 6, no. 3 ( Feb. 1903), 287-94. The Dorsey Collection, heavily used by Du Bois, was rediscovered too late to be used by Hershberg et al.
