Papers largely reflect his career as historian and professor and include course files, conference and organizational files, lectures, articles and papers, and correspondence. Most of the course files are from those he taught at Stanford University, with a few from courses at Northwestern. Subjects include Civil War, race relations, and African American history.
Background
George M. Fredrickson, the Edgar E. Robinson Professor of United States History (emeritus) at Stanford University, earned his A.B. (1956) and Ph.D. (1964) from Harvard; he matriculated as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Oslo (1956-7) and was awarded an honorary M.A. from Oxford University in 1988. He taught at Harvard and Northwestern before joining the history faculty at Stanford in 1984. He has published seven books on the Civil War, African American history, and racism and published numerous articles, including more than twenty-five pieces in THE NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS. In 1985, he was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He was also a co-director of the Research Institute of Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity at Stanford and in 2000 was awarded the Cox Medal for fostering undergraduate research.
