Murray's Bibliography

The Exhibit of American Negroes was not only remarkable in terms of the sociological and visual material it collected, but also the information it contained about black authors. Under the direction of Daniel A. P. Murray at the Library of Congress, a bibliography of black authors was created for the exhibit. Hundreds of books and pamphlets were assembled from the bibliography and sent to Paris. Many of the pamplets sent to the Paris World's Fair are now available as part of the American Memory Project at the Library Congress.
