The Journal of Negro History, Vol. IX, No. 3, July 1924.
This issue mostly comprises the Introduction and the first seven chapters of A.A. Taylor’s article “The Negro in South Carolina during the Reconstruction.” In 1922 Taylor [Alrutheus Ambush Taylor (1893–1954)] “became the first young black scholar to join [Carter G.] Woodson’s research staff at the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, where he served as a full-time investigator. Taylor’s research on blacks in the Reconstruction of South Carolina after the Civil War was published in Woodson’s journal in 1924 and brought out in book form the same year. Taylor’s later interpretations of the Reconstruction-era were largely echoed in W. E. B. Du Bois’s masterly interpretation, Black Reconstruction (1935), as well as in subsequent studies of the period…” (ANB)
