Franz Boas and W. E. B. Du Bois at Atlanta University, 1906 (Transactions Vol. 98, Part 2)
Rosemary Levy Zumwalt & William Shedrick Willis
The papers of William Shedrick Willis (1921-1983), housed at the Amer. Philosophical Soc., include his drafts of the manuscript “Boas Goes to Atlanta.” They contain the fascinating story of Franz Boas’s visit to Atlanta Univ. in 1906, and more, because Willis intended the work to be a book on Boas’s work in black anthropology. Zumwalt focuses on what was to have been Willis’s first chapter, “Boas Goes to Atlanta.” She expands the sections on Boas’s trip to Atlanta, the time he spent on the campus of Atlanta Univ., the reaction to his talk by blacks and whites, and the conflict between W. E. B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washington. Zumwalt came to know him better as she read of his encounters with racism on a personal level and on institutional levels. Photos.
