Scope and Content Note

This series consists primarily of essays, articles, and diaries written by Frank, Helen J., and Helen E. Chisholm. Helen J. Chisholm produced a number of essays concerning various subjects relating to African Americans, such as "The Negro in Alabama," and "Achievements of Negro Women." However, her most ambitious project was an autobiography, "Unto the Third and Fourth Generation," where Chisholm mentions notable names like Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Andrew D. White, and David Root.

Frank Chisholm wrote editorials relating to Tuskegee Institute and a few essays reflecting on his interactions with Booker T. Washington, George Washington Carver, and W.E.B. DuBois. Miscellaneous writings in this series include Dorothy B. Porter's "Early American Negro Writings: A Bibliographical Study" and a manuscript of "Canterbury Pilgrims" by Rena Keith Clisby.

Of particular interest in the diaries and journals subseries, are two volumes containing entries relating to Helen Chisholm's work at The Kamehameha Schools (1902-1904) in Honolulu, Hawaii.
