The Rudolph Dunbar Papers document the professional activities of clarinetist, conductor, music critic, teacher and journalist Rudolph Dunbar. Letters in the correspondence series include those from Coretta Scott King, Eslanda Robeson, and British member of parliament Robert Allan. Professional papers include press releases, Anti-African American propaganda that circulated in Germany during World War II, and printed programs for conducting performances by Dunbar. Most photographs were made by Dunbar and relate to his work as a journalist, including photographs of independence day celebrations of former British colonies in Africa and the Caribbean, and photographs of people including Kwame Nkrumah, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip of Great Britain, and Jesse Owens. Other photographs document Dunbar's music career as a conductor and teacher.
