The Museum Hosts W.E.B. Du Bois

Most archivists remember their first surprise encounter with a famous signature. Mine happened during my first year at the Museum Archives of Cleveland Museum of Art when I came across correspondence between the museum and W.E.B Du Bois. As an undergraduate sociology major I studied Du Bois and read several of his essays alongside texts by other notable sociologists like Max Weber and Emile Durkheim.
