Wendell Wray Papers Open for Research Use

The Archives Service Center opened the Wendell Wray Papers (UA.90.F88) for research use. The collection consists of the personal and professional papers of Wendell Leonard Wray, the first African-American male to both graduate from Carnegie Tech Library School and be hired at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Public Library. Wray relocated to New York City where he directed the Harlem-based North Manhattan Project, and later the Schomburg Center for Research in Black History. Later, he taught at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Information Science, specializing in the instruction of oral history and African-American bibliography.
