C.L.R. James Papers at Columbia University Now Open

The Columbia University’s Rare Book and Manuscript Library has opened the C.L.R. James Papers to researchers. The acquisition of this material was announced in 2007 (although the exact provenance of the collection is not clear from the press release). A detailed finding aid on the collection is available online. Of particular interest is a manuscript of an unfinished autobiography (located in Series II), mentioned in passing by Paul Buhle in his C.L.R. James: the Artist as Revolutionary.
