The Johns Hopkins University collection of African American history and culture is an artificially assembled collection of printed materials, diaries, photographs, and other items created from 1800 to 1988.
The material is diverse, including engravings, drawings, posters, and medals, ranging from the 18th to the 20th century. Much of the collection is oriented toward the avant-garde, so even the 18th-century material tends to be literature of the margins. It is especially strong in 19th and 20th century avant-garde material (Symbolisme, Cabaret literature, political and social satire, Surrealism).
Stephen Crane (1871-1900) was an American novelist, poet, and short story writer, who in 1895 wrote "The Red Badge of Courage", which earned him international acclaim. This collection of materials relating to Crane, compiled by Johns Hopkins University alumnus Richard Frary, includes letters (many by Crane), events ephemera, photographs, articles of literary criticism, and sheet music (inspired by his fiction). The materials date from the 1890s to the early 2000s.
