Summary
Quincy Troupe (born 1939) is a poet, author, and editor, perhaps best known for co-writing "Miles: The Autobiography" (1989) with the influential jazz trumpeter Miles Davis. His father, Quincy Trouppe, Sr., was an all-star catcher in Negro league baseball. The Quincy Troupe papers, dating from 1915 to 2008, mainly document Troupe's career from the mid-1970s to 2008. They also hold the scrapbooks of Quincy Trouppe, Sr. The collection's strongest points are its documentation of Troupe's writings and other projects, particularly his books on Miles Davis, James Baldwin, and Chris Gardner; "The Miles Davis Radio Project"; his editorial work for the arts journal "Black Renaissance Noire" and "Code" magazine; and his published and unpublished poetry and essays.
