expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 1. Correspondence, 1915-1986 and undated.

About 900 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Much of the correspondence relates to Lumpkin's research and writing projects, particularly The Making of a Southerner; an unpublished novel, "Eli Hill"; The Emancipation of Angelina Grimke; and an article, "The General Plan Was Freedom." There are also some letters about her books The Family: A Study in Membership Roles and Child Workers in America. Most of this correspondence is with editors about publishing arrangements, revisions, sales, and distribution; with librarians about research materials; and with scholars about Lumpkin's work. Letters from friends, scholars, and others responding to The Making of a Southerner constitute the bulk of the 1947 files. Other correspondence pertains to articles, book reviews, and teaching and research appointments.

Much of the later correspondence focuses on Lumpkin's activities after her retirement from Wells College in 1967. Lumpkin's interest in criminal justice is reflected in letters relating to her memberships in the League of Women Voters, Offender Aid and Restoration (OAR), and the Citizens Association for Justice in Virginia (CAJV). There is no correspondence relating to Lumpkin's participation in other organizations to which she belonged--the American Civil Liberties Union, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Common Cause, and the Women's Political Caucus. Later correspondence, beginning ca. 1964, also concerns health matters.

Other correspondence relates to Lumpkin's work as a national student secretary for the YWCA. Most of these letters are between Lumpkin and Leslie Blanchard of the Student Department of the YWCA, and other student secretaries. Some of the YWCA letters are photocopies. There are also a few letters relating to Lumpkin's years at Brenau College, Columbia University, and the University of Wisconsin. A few of Lumpkin's childhood letters to and from family members, as well as some later letters from her mother are included. The scrapbook, which is on microfilm, also contains a few letters.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 3. Lectures, 1947-1979 and undated.

About 65 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Primarily notes and some drafts of lectures delivered at college functions and in classes, primarily at Wells College, but also at Smith College and Mills College. Some of the lectures were also given in Charlottesville, Va. Most of the lectures relate to race relations and to Lumpkin's research projects. Early lectures are on The Making of a Southerner, and many of the later lectures focus on criminal justice. Announcements and programs for many of Lumpkin's talks are filed in folder 119.

More than half of the lectures were delivered as part of Lumpkin's course, "The Negro Minority in American Life." Lumpkin taught this course at Wells College from 1957 to 1967. The version of the lectures included here is for the course as it was taught during the 1966-1967 academic year. The lectures cover black history from the nineteenth century to 1967, but most of them focus on the twentieth century and particularly on the 1950s and 1960s. A survey of black protest during summer 1963, conducted by Lumpkin's class in 1963-1964, is filed with the lectures. For supporting material Lumpkin used with these class lectures, see the Printed Material and Microfilm series.

Folder 95 contains typescript copies and notes for lectures delivered at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Unitarian Church in Charlottesville, Va. Also included in this series are notes and lectures on Fanny Kemble.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 4. Subject Files, 1922-1978.

About 90 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical.

Subject files relate to various organizations to which Lumpkin belonged, her education and genealogy, and also include autobiographical information. Files for Offender Aid and Restoration (OAR), Citizen's Association for Justice in Virginia (CAJV), and the League of Women Voters pertain to Lumpkin's interest in criminal justice. Included in these files are meeting notes and minutes, reports, and publicity material. Some of this material provides information on the history and organization of OAR and CAJV, and on the 1972 Governor's Council on the courts in Virginia. The YWCA material contains proposals, reports, and meeting notes by Lumpkin; schedules for campus visits; and lists of members of the National Student Council in the Southern Division. Some items are faded photocopies.

Among the autobiographical materials are a vita written for the University of North Carolina's Southern Oral History Program and a sketch written for Alfred Knopf, Inc., in connection with The Making of a Southerner. The vita includes extensive comments on Lumpkin's professional involvements. Other autobiographical material includes notes Lumpkin wrote to accompany her papers when they were transferred to the Southern Historical Collection.

School material includes transcripts, loan agreements, and other material from Lumpkin's years at Brenau College, Columbia University, and the University of Wisconsin. A genealogy for Lumpkin's father, William Wallace Lumpkin, and family notes made by Lumpkin on the Lumpkin and Du Pre families are filed with the genealogical material.

Primarily reprints of articles by Lumpkin, material related to Lumpkin's tenure at the Institute of Labor Studies, and brochures, reports, pamphlets, and news releases used in Lumpkin's course, "The Negro Minority in American Life." Much of this material came from the Southern Regional Council and CORE. Material from each of these organizations has been kept together.

Two population maps from the Southern Regional Council are filed with oversize papers. These maps show the percentage of non white population in the counties of the southern states, and the southern counties in which desegregation was in effect in the spring of 1960.

Folder 115 contains a television script about the Grimke sisters for which Lumpkin was a consultant. Folder 121 contains material on Lumpkin's sister, writer Grace Lumpkin (d. 1980). Included are correspondence, obituaries, and an essay entitled "Memorial Day--1961."

The miscellaneous file (folder 126) contains certificates of membership in professional and honorary societies, items related to Lumpkin's retirement from Wells College, material pertaining to teaching assignments at the University of Virginia, a photocopy of Lumpkin's newspaper obituary, and other items.
