The Frederick Douglass Papers

Yesterday, the Library of Congress' American Memory collection announced the first online release of the Frederick Douglass Papers. This release contains over 2,000 items including a partial handwritten draft of his third autobiography, The Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, and a biography of his wife, Anna Murray Douglass, written by their daughter, Rosetta Douglass Sprague. In addition to writings by Douglass, visitors will find material from authors such as Henry Ward Beecher, Ida B. Wells, Lydia Maria Child, and Horace Greeley. Users can keyword search the collection or browse by series. As with so many of American Memory's releases, this site will be welcomed by scholars and the general public alike. The second release is scheduled for 2003.
