Academic Writings


Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

This collection contains items from Donald Black’s life and career, spanning from the 1930s up until the 2010s, ranging from personal memorabilia from his high school years, to his research in graduate school, to drafts of his major published works, to his professional involvement in sociology and universities, all the way up to correspondence concerning his retirement from the University of Virginia in 2016. Some folders contain groupings of files that remain as-is from their arrangement by Black, while others contain files compounded into a more comprehensive grouping from different sources. Some items may be cross referenced under different series. For example, there is correspondence with Stanley Holowitz under both his personal file as well as under the topical files on correspondence with Academic Press.
