Abstract

Monroe Nathan Work (1866-1945) directed the Department of Records and Research at Tuskegee Institute from 1908 to 1938. His training in sociology at the University of Chicago provided the foundation for a life-long commitment to collecting and distributing historical and social science information about African-Americans. He transformed his department from an alumni records office into a major research center, and he compiled reference sources, A Bibliography of the Negro in Africa and America and the Negro Year Book, that have served scholars, researchers, and librarians for generations.
