Title:James W. Silver collection

The James W. Silver Digital Collection contains news clippings and pamphlets that document the controversy surrounding Silver’s publicly-expressed support for ending segregation, particularly after the publication of Mississippi: The Closed Society. Also included is professional and personal correspondence between Silver and others—including prominent figures such as Albert Gore, Robert Kennedy, Alfred Knopf, Malcolm X, and Arthur Schlesinger—and 31 “Reports From Britain,” articles written by Silver while teaching at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, on a variety of sociopolitical topics.
