Liberian archives

The Liberian Collections program at Indiana University has completed digitization of the William V.S. Tubman Papers [1904-1992]. More than 44,000 pages of primary source information are openly accessible through the IU Digital Library Program. According to project director Verlon Stone, this collection has already been of great value to scholars.

Additional funding from CRL/CAMP provided the opportunity to digitize Liberian Government Archives papers, a subset of the Liberian National Archives documents collected by Dr. Svend E. Holsoe.  These photocopied documents are uniquely valuable, being the only extant evidence of the original materials. Digitization began late Summer 2012.

    I visited the LCP archive in December 2012, and it was a goldmine of ethnological records for my next book on ethnohistories of gender violence in Liberia.
