Summary
The Martin B. Duberman Papers contain personal and professional correspondence, organizational and topical files, manuscripts, typescripts, and drafts of his writings, teaching files, recorded interviews, photographs, films and memorabilia documenting his personal and professional life from childhood through 1979. Some materials, chiefly book manuscripts and photographs, date from a later period. The materials most heavily reflect his career as an academic historian. There is correspondence with students, colleagues, publishers, journals and libraries, as well as syllabi and lecture notes, and materials documenting his experimental seminars on American radicalism. Much of the material reflects the intellectual and social ferment at the universities during the 1960s. Beginning in 1973 with the publication of his book, Black Mountain, in which Duberman came out publically as a homosexual, the papers reflect Duberman's position as a spokesman for the gay rights movement and his research interest in the history of human sexuality.
