Immediate Source of Acquisition
The clippings are attached to pages and were formerly bound, cataloged, and titled Free Negro Education Newspaper Clippings (E441 .A2 F8 V. 14). The clippings were removed from binding to form a manuscript collection and arranged chronologically in two document boxes. (Other pamphlets in this series formed the Birney Anti-Slavery Collection, later cataloged separately and available in Special Collections.) The clippings have also been photocopied and bound into a single volume with the same title: Free Negro Education Newspaper Clippings (Cage LC 2801. F74 1882). The newspaper clippings in the bound volume are not arranged chronologically.
