April 9, 2013—The Douglas W. Bryant Fellowship jury is pleased to announce that Emilyn Brown and Melissa Dollman were named 2013–14 Bryant Fellows.
Brown’s project, “Adam Clayton Powell, Jr.: Select Speeches, Sermons and Writings on Global Affairs, 1935–1960,” will explore the evolving role of Powell in global affairs with the aim of creating an edited volume of speeches, sermons, letters and newspaper columns that highlight the global dimension of his public career. Brown is a manuscript cataloger at the Schlesinger Library.
Dollman’s project, “Cue the Women: Betty Friedan and Cable Access Television, ca. 1977,” fosters exploration into the under-researched topic of women in access television, both as talent on-camera and behind the scenes, through research into the varying and converging threads of provenance between two programs that aired on New York City cable access around 1977. Dollman is an audio/visual archivist at the Schlesinger Library.
Bryant Fellowships support research by Harvard’s professional library staff in bibliography, historical aspects of librarianship and research outside the field of librarianship. Find more information here.
