Contents of the Collection

1. Academia (AC), 1931-2006

10 boxes

This series chronicles Franklin's work as a professor of history. It includes materials documenting his role as a mentor and advisor to numerous undergraduate and graduate students, his lecture notes and other classroom materials, and his administrative and committee work at various institutions. Student Files make up a significant portion of the series. Franklin kept files on particular students, arranged by name, from Brooklyn College or the University of Chicago. Teaching Materials consists largely of general lecture notes from various courses Franklin taught through his career. The Colleges and Universities subseries has been arranged by school, with the majority of files stemming from Franklin's work at Brooklyn College, University of Cambridge, University of Chicago, and Duke University. This subseries includes materials relating to Franklin's appointments and employment as well as department and university-level correspondence, events, and committees.

The Academia series contains three subseries: Student Files, Lecture Notes, and Colleges and Universities. Student Files have been arranged alphabetically by student name. Lecture Notes are arranged alphabetically by title. Colleges and Universities have been sorted by college, reflecting Franklin's long career as an educator at institutions around the United States.

Student Files, 1958-1990s

Name files maintained by Franklin for select students (usually PhD students) at Brooklyn College and the University of Chicago. Typical files include dissertation abstracts, Franklin's evaluations of their work (not including grades), correspondence and letters of recommendation, and published articles or other clippings. These files often extend far beyond the dates of the students' enrollment in Franklin's departments, reflecting his continuing role as a mentor and colleague to many of his former PhD students. The Student Files subseries includes notable figures such as Genna Rae McNeil, Alfred Moss, and Loren Schweninger, each of whom went on to collaborate with Franklin on some of his later publications.

3. Audiovisual (AV), 1959-2009

24 boxes

These videos and sound recordings created by or assembled by John Hope Franklin are a rich source of information about Dr. Franklin's life and career and about race relations in the United States. Materials are arranged into three subseries: ABPIR, Recordings of Franklin, and Recordings of Others. The ABPIR subseries is made up primarily of recordings of advisory board meetings and short commercially produced videos relating to race such as public service announcements.

The Recordings of Franklin subseries documents a wide range of Franklin’s activities from interviews, to appearances in historic or racially themed documentaries and educational videos, to lectures and speeches on race, race relations in the U.S., and the historian's role in interpreting history. One set of tapes record a lengthy oral history interview of Franklin by A. Ballard, National Humanities Center, in which Franklin recounts events in his life from his earliest years in Oklahoma to his decision to go to the University of Chicago. Another audiocassette includes an interview of T.S. Currier with Franklin.

The Recordings of Others subseries consists of a variety of recordings concerning organizations Franklin was connected with, such as the Children’s Defense Fund and the USSAS in Durban. There are also a number of recordings concerning topics related to Franklin’s work including video commercial productions that examine racism, prejudice, social conditions in the United States, and other race-related issues. A smaller number of commercial and original sound recordings vary from musical performances, including a compilation of Civil War songs performed by Franklin's former student, to gatherings of notable writers and historians.

Original audiovisual materials are closed to use. This series includes some use copies; researchers should contact Research Services in advance if they are interested in using the Audiovisual Materials series.

4. Correspondence (C), 1930s-2009

35 boxes

The Correspondence Series includes personal and professional correspondence received and sent by Franklin throughout his adult life. The series has been divided into several subseries that reflect the original arrangement of the materials. The materials also include correspondence from Franklin's assistants, Margaret Fitzsimmons and Debi Hamlin, written on Franklin's behalf. The bulk of the materials lie in the General Professional and Personal Correspondence subseries. These have been loosely sorted by correspondent; the Professional Correspondence subseries has been further sorted by decade. Correspondence with significant or notable people and organizations have been given their own files in the Professional and Personal Name Files subseries. Additional subseries include Publisher's Correspondence, Recommendations, Declined Invitations, Advice to Authors, and Offers.

Additional correspondence is held throughout the collection, particularly in the ABPIR Series and the Service Series. The Student Files subseries in the Academia Series also includes many recommendation letters.

General Professional Correspondence, 1930s-2000s

This subseries includes letters received by Franklin relating to his work as a professor, advisor, colleague, and historian. Letters occasionally include newspaper clippings, articles, and other attachments.

Materials have been grouped alphabetically and then by decade. The majority of letters date from the 1990s and 2000s.

14 boxes

This series includes materials related to Franklin's participation in scholarly, civic, and social events. The bulk of this series consists of invitations, correspondence related to event planning, programs and bulletins, fliers and advertisements, photographs, travel itineraries, press coverage, and thank you notes.

Franklin's work with some organizations was ongoing and spanned multiple events over many years such as his work with Phi Delta Kappa, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., and the Board of Foreign Scholarships. There are also engagements that involved multiple occurrences such as his annual work with the Academy of Senior Professionals at Eckerd College or the Library of Congress Kluge Fellowship. For these multi-instance or multi-event engagements, each instance is filed separately by month and year. In addition, at the end of the series there are folders containing telephone messages dated 1997-2006, frequent flyer statements dated 1984-1998, travel agency receipts dated 1991-2001, day planners dated 1962-2004. At the end of the series there is also a folder with a compiled, running list of engagements mostly dated 1960s-1980s created by Franklin or his secretary. This list has been copied and also filed in the folders of the corresponding years.

Additional material related to Franklin's engagements may be found in the Honors and Awards, Service, or Correspondence series.

7. Personal and Family Materials (P), 1891-2000s

6 boxes

This series includes materials relating to Franklin's life and pursuits outside of his scholarship and public service. It also includes materials from other family members, particularly his wife, Aurelia Whittington Franklin; their son, John Whittington "Whit" Franklin; and Franklin's father, Buck Colbert Franklin. Franklin's professor and mentor, Theodore Currier, is also heavily represented in this series, stemming from Franklin's role as executor of the Currier estate following his death in 1979.

This series also includes an original painting by the French artist Georges Bigot, who worked in Japan in the late nineteenth century. It included no accompanying contextual information but appears to have been part of Franklin's art collection. It is filed in under John Hope Franklin's subseries.

The materials have been foldered by family member and arranged alphabetically. Oversize materials are housed in Box P5, a 16x20 box. A sizable amount of materials have been classified generically as being from the "Franklin Family," rather than being assigned to an individual family member. This group of materials contains a large amount of photographs of family and friends, many of which are snapshots of casual scenes. Miscellaneous photographs of family friends have not been arranged. Photographs of family members, particularly John Hope, Aurelia, and John W. Franklin, have been sorted by decade, with a large file of miscellaneous and undated photographs remaining. Photographs have been sleeved for preservation, with labels left visible if present.
