Title:Brian Urquhart collection of material about Ralph Bunche, ca. 1932-1972
Date:1932-1972
Description:

Collection consists of papers of, about, and collected by Ralph J. Bunche and later used by his colleague and biographer, Brian Urquhart. Includes manuscripts, his notebooks, project files, audiotape recordings, clippings, travel photographs, and memorabilia. The notebooks document more than five decades of Bunche's evolution as a political thinker and carefully preserve the origin and genesis of his major published and unpublished speeches, essays, articles, and other writings. Project files include research materials consulted by Bunche, reports generated by him and/or his affiliates, and photocopies of business correspondence. Audiotapes include transcriptions of taped interviews with Bunche, mostly from the 1960s. Clippings and memorabilia include articles by and about Bunche, along with reviews and letters to him.

The collection also includes a speech given in Montgomery, Alabama following the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery and a photograph from a 1932 conference at Howard University in Washington, D.C.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
