About 600 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

This series is comprised chiefly of letters written to Dabbs about his writings and speaking engagements, his integrationist stance, and his involvement with religious, college, and civil rights groups. Many letters are "fan mail," praising his writings, as well as "hate mail," prompted by Dabbs's civil rights activism and writings in the 1940s-1960s. Responses to Dabbs's public opposition to the House Un-American Activities Committee are included, especially in the 1961 correspondence. There are scattered letters from prominent authors, activists, and historians, including Paul Green, Eudora Welty, Sarah Patton Boyle, Myles Horton, Hodding Carter, Isabel Fiske Conant, C. Vann Woodward, and George Mitchell, among others. These letters include discussions of the lives, writings, and beliefs of these individuals. Letters from pastors and religious leaders are common, as are letters commenting on the treatment of African Americans, especially in the South. There are occasional copies of letters Dabbs wrote to fellow writers, association members, friends, admirers, and groups. Note that letters from members of groups to which Dabbs belonged may also be found in the subject files.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 2.4. Other writings.

About 400 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical by type of writing, then by title or year.

Other writings by James McBride Dabbs include columns, editorials, letters to editors, Sunday school lesson outlines, poems, short stories, plays, book reviews, course notebooks, teaching notes, diary entries, and various fragments. Letters to editors were addressed primarily to South Carolina newspapers, 1935-1968. Through these letters, particularly one in April 1944, Dabbs first made his liberal civil rights stance known. There are also outlines of Sunday school lessons Dabbs delivered to a men's class at the Black River Presbyterian Church in Mayesville, S.C., from 1944 to 1963. Titled paragraphs were probably written in the 1960s as newspaper fillers. Poems were written while Dabbs was in graduate school and during his early years as a college professor and are chiefly final drafts with some notations of journals to which poems were submitted. Plays and short stories appear to have been written during Dabbs's early Coker College days as he experiemented with various forms of writing and actively participated in campus life.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 4. Subject files, 1922-1972.

About 3200 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical.

This series includes correspondence, committee reports, financial records, minutes of organization meetings, research material, newspaper clippings, and printed reports reflecting Dabbs's political, religious, educational, and writing activities. Several folders contain correspondence with publishers about articles, poems, and book-length manuscripts he submitted and with church, college, and civic groups about his addressing their meetings. "Fan mail" and correspondence with publishers about specific books are filed by book title. Organizational records are of the Southern Regional Council, South Carolina Council on Human Relations, Fellowship of Southern Churchmen, Committee of Southern Churchmen, Council on Church and Society, Delta Ministry, and other civic groups to which Dabbs belonged. Research material that Dabbs collected is in files with titles such as "Freedom of Thought in Southern Colleges" (which contains correspondence between Dabbs and professors at southern colleges and universities about the issue of freedom to comment on desegretation events) and "The economic effect of the racial struggle." Most of these subject files were created by Dabbs himself; the remainder were created during the processing of these papers.
