The papers of Dorothy West (1907-1998), Harlem Renaissance writer and long-time resident of Martha's Vineyard, have been processed, digitized, and are now fully accessible online. These papers (ca.1890-1998) contain drafts, manuscripts, published stories and articles, issues of Challenge and New Challenge, correspondence with other Harlem Renaissance writers, family correspondence, and photographs.
Processing was made possible by gifts from the Radcliffe College Classes of 1950 and 1968. Digitization of the collection (approximately 8,000 images) was completed with a grant from the Pine Tree Foundation of New York.
