In 2010 the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History (AARL), a special library of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System (AFPLS), and the Digital Library of Georgia (DLG) received funds from the National Historical Papers and Records Commission (NHPRC) to digitize and make Web-accessible late nineteenth and mid-twentieth century manuscript collections that document the historical development of education for African Americans, primarily in the South, from the early 1860s to the early 1950s. The eleven collections digitized for this grant are accessible via our AARL Finding Aids webpage. The collections include: Atlanta University Collection, Adam Knight Spence and John Wesley Work Collection, Samuel Archer Collection, Sanford Lee Papers, Auburn Branch Library Records, Annie L. McPheeters Papers, Helen Adele Johnson Whiting Papers, Peyton Austin Allen Papers, James Frank Harrison Family Collection, Selena Sloan Butler Family Papers and the William B. Matthews Papers.
