Collection Overview

The Darlene Clark Hine Papers span the dates from about 1879 to 1996, with the bulk of the files dating from the 1970s to 1996. Earlier dates represent reproductions of archival materials, chiefly photographs. Through professional correspondence, research and writings materials, and professional service files, the collection documents the career of Darlene Clark Hine, professor of African American history, college administrator, and published author on African American history in the United States. The collection is arranged into the following series: Correspondence, Personal Files, Professional Service, and Research and Writings. The largest file group in the collection is the Professional Service Series, which documents Hines' extensive involvement with academic organizations and civic organizations, her activities as lecturer and speaker at many conferences, symposia, and other events, and to a lesser extent, her activities at Purdue and Michigan State University as a professor, mentor, and faculty member. The second largest series in the collection, Research and Writings, contains files of research and publication materials related to Hines' major published works, articles, and media projects concerning African American slavery; the Civil Rights movement; African American suffrage, particularly in Texas; race relations in the United States; African American women in the Midwest; and black women in the nursing profession. Items in the Correspondence Series chiefly relate to Hine's academic activities at Purdue, Michigan State, Arizona State, and the University of Delaware, and her publishing activities; there is also some correspondence with foundations concerning funding for projects. Finally, the Personal Files contains such items as Hines' early student work, including her master's thesis, and some correspondence, cards, and photographs. Each series and its subdivisions are described in full in the collection description that follows. Acquired as part of the John Hope Franklin Research Center for African and African American History and Culture.

Arranged into two subseries, Major Writings and Other Writings and Projects. Contains drafts, correspondence, reviews, and supporting research materials for Hine's major publications: Black Victory: The Rise and Fall of the White Primary in Texas (1979); When the Truth is Told: a History of Black Women's Culture and Community in Indiana (1981); Black Women in White: Racial Conflict and Cooperation in the Nursing Profession, 1890-1950 (1989); More Than Chattel: Black Women and Slavery in the Americas (1995); and a historical research project, "Black Women in the Middle West," which led to the creation of an archives on the topic at the Indiana Historical Society, and to a journal article in Signs on black women and rape in the Midwest. Early dates represent reproductions of archival materials, chiefly photographs for Hines' work on African American nurses in the U.S. There is also material in the Major Writings Subseries on Hines' work on the Blacks in the Diaspora Series, published by Indiana University Press. The Other Writings and Projects Subseries houses similar documentation for writings appearing in journals, encyclopedias, and works edited by Hine. Most notable is the material on Eyes on the Prize, History of the Civil Rights Era Reader, for which Hine contributed two chapters; these two boxes contain many folders of interviews, including correspondence and interviews both conducted by and with Fred D. Gray, prominent civil rights era attorney who represented both Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. during the sixties. Finally, the Other Writings and Projects Subseries contains documentation on Hines' numerous media projects on black women and African American history. Files are either arranged chronologically or alphabetically by folder title.

Groups for major works are arranged in chronological order; files within are usually grouped alphabetically by title.
