The University of Chicago Library
History | Guide to Sources for the History of Slavery in the University of Chicago Library

The purpose of this Guide is to assist scholars in locating source materials in the University of Chicago Library for the history of slavery in the Atlantic world, and its aftermath. The literature of slavery is extensive and widely scattered. This Guide attempts to identify the most useful bibliographies, catalogs, guides, and indexing and abstracting tools with the assistance of which the inquirer may start to make his or her way into this large literature.

The Guide also identifies the most important collections of original source materials for slavery in our collections. These fall into four categories: (1) Large microform sets of original archival materials, such as the Records of the Ante-bellum Southern Plantations from the Revolution through the Civil War, or the Records of the Secretary of the Interior relating to the Suppression of the African Slave Trade and Negro Colonization;(2) collections of published sources, such as slave narratives, travelers' accounts, and correspondence of slaves and slaveowners; (3) large collections of early printed books, serials, and newspapers, such as the Early American Imprints, 1801-1819, Early American Newspapers, 1701-1820, the Goldsmiths'-Kress Library of Economic Literature, and so forth; and (4) collections of government publications, such as the British Parliamentary Papers, the Early State Legislative Journals, and the U. S. Executive Branch Documents, 1789-1909. Because of the peculiar value of government publications for many aspects of the historiography of slavery and its aftermath, the Guide includes sections identifying publications in the Congressional Serial Set and the British Parliamentary Papers that provide the basic documentation on U. S. and British involvement with and regulation of slavery.

This Guide is only a preliminary and imperfect tool. It does not seek to identify the thousands of scholarly monographs and articles in our collections that embody the historiography of Atlantic slavery--that the function of the bibliographies, indexes, and catalogs listed herein. Nor can it pretend to be comprehensive in any department. There are unquestionably many sources omitted. Even the most famous, most influential, and most studied slave narratives, those of Frederick Douglass, are not listed herein. And the extensive papers personal and public papers of slaveholders such as Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and Jackson, and those of antislavery leaders such as Van Buren and J. Q. Adams are held by the Library but not listed. A fuller listing of sources appears in A Guide to Microforom Sources for History and Political Science in the University of Chicago Library (1997).

The period of the First World War saw a rapid increase in black migration from the rural south to urban centers in the industrialized north.

Collection comprises records created by these wartime agencies that focus upon the operations and labor conditions of several such industries and on black workers. Collection also includes records from agencies that studied black workers in the '20's, including the Department of Labor, Bureau of Agricultural Economics, and the U.S. Census Bureau.

An important economic feature of the early 20th century south was peonage, or debt peonage. Plantation owners held laborers in debt, and forced them to remain on the premises to work off their debt, often by violence or intimidation. The system functioned as a kind of substitute for the antebellum slave system. Collection comprises the peonage files of the Justice Department from 1901 to 1945, including complaints to the department from local US attorneys, private individuals, and organizations such as the NAACP; internal legal memoranda, depositions by witnesses, briefs, trial transcripts; and investigations conducted by the FBI. Peonage was also a feature of industries as well, and the collection provides information on many features of the economic history of the South, especially wages, labor conditions, and labor recruitment.

Papers Appearing in the Irish University Press 1000-volume collection of Nineteenth Century British Parliamentary papers dealing with slavery and slave trade

The text that follows appears in the Catalogue of British Parliamentary Papers in the Irish University Press 1000-Volume Series(Dublin: Irish Academic Press, 1977, pages 200-212, the section headed "Slave Trade (95 volumes)"[ RR Z2019.I67 1977]. The volumes of this reprint series are available from the Center for Research Libraries. The listing that follows may also be employed to identify papers in the British Parliamentary Papers [Microprint edition], held at the General Microforms Section at microfc J1 Mic; and to search for individual Parliamentary papers shown in the Library's catalogs.

The material relating to the slave trade presented to the British House of Commons in the nineteenth century provides comprehensive data on the practice of slavery, its extent and effects; on the capture, marketing, treatment and conditions of slaves in the various colonies and countries where slavery formed the basis of economic system; and on the increasing efforts of Great Britain and other countries to abolish the slave system.

The material relating to the slave trade falls into three general categories: major reports from Select Committees, classified correspondence from British Commissioners, agents and Foreign Powers (including reports from naval officers) and, finally, general reports, correspondence and papers. The subject list which follows contains all the papers relating specifically to slavery and the slave trade in each of these categories in the order given, published chronologically. Volume 8, consisting of Instructions issued to Naval Officers engaged in the suppression of the slave trade, an important policy record, is the exception to this arrangement.

Papers from the period covered which do not relate specifically to slavery but which contain some material on the subject, or which relate indirectly to slave trade (papers on the supply of Coolie and Indian labourers to the colonies) will be found in such subject sets as IUP Colonies-General (e.g. Vol 1), Africa (e.g. Vol 5), West Indies, East Indies, etc.

Slave Trade Volume 1

REPORTS FROM THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON THE SLAVE TRADE, 1810 - 1830

240 pp 2 maps SBN 7165 0140 6

This volume contains four Select Committee Reports published between the years 1810 and 1830. There are two small reports on slave labour in the West India Colonies and the Mauritius. The main report which is that of 1830 examines the relations between white settlers the liberated Africans and the slaves in Sierra Leone and Fernando Po, principally with a view to bettering the condition and prospects of the liberated Africans.

REPORT FROM THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON THE EXTINCTION OF SLAVERY 1831-1832

660 pp SBN 7165 0141 4

The terms of reference of the committee of 1831-32 were the following: "to consider and report upon the measures which it may be expedient to adopt for the purpose of effecting the extinction of slavery throughout the British Dominions. at the earliest period compatible with the safety of all classes in the Colonies''. The Committee confined their inquiry to the island of Jamaica and sought to establish or refute two basic considerations: ''that the slaves, if emancipated, would maintain themselves, would be industrious and disposed to acquire property by labour; that the dangers of convulsion are greater from freedom withheld than from freedom granted to the slaves.''

REPORT FROM THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON THE APPRENTICESHIP SYSTEM IN THE COLONIES 1836-1837

736 pp

The Select Committee Report and Evidence of 1836, which forms the greater part of this volume concentrated on the system of apprenticeship in operation in Jamaica. This system which is described in the volume as one of preparation and transition, was calculated to expedite the momentous change from slavery to freedom. By the law of 1834 negroes under six years were made free and all others apprenticed for a given time to their former owners, technically no longer slaves but still tied to their masters. The committee found certain detects in the apprenticeship laws and made recommendations for their improvement. In general they reported that the laws were having the desired effect

REPORTS FROM THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON THE SLAVE TRADE. 1847-1848

864 pp SBN 7165 0143 0

These reports deal with the effectiveness and shortcomings of British efforts to suppress the slave trade. The committee noted that. although the strength of the preventive naval force was at its highest, British cruisers liberated only four per cent of the slaves carried out of Africa. It was felt that the extent and activity of the slave traffic was governed by European demands for the products of slave labour. Other points covered by the inquiry included the problems of liberated Africans. the general welfare of slaves and efforts of the Brazilian government to suppress the trade.

Lincoln's election put a new determination into United States campaign against slavery. Cooperation between the American and British Navies was possible on a scale never before contemplated. The United States Government was reluctant to participate in a proposed international conference for the suppression of slavery prefering to retain its traditional isolationist policy in world affairs. Britain's efforts to stop the export of slaves from Africa led to the occupation of Lagos as a base for their anti-slavery campaign in Africa.

Cuba was now the only slave market in the Western World. The Spanish authorities had outlawed slavery but were reluctant to enforce the anti-slavery laws. The Spanish Government decided to make a determined effort to end the Cuban slave trade and appointed Dulce as Governor of Cuba. Dulce's efforts are discussed here along with reports from the British representative in Cuba during this period.

The ending of the American Civil War enabled the United States once again to take an active part in the campaign against slavery. A naval squadron was sent to the west coast of Africa to aid British naval units in the area. Direct British intervention in native African affairs in an effort to stop the trade at its source continued. Typical of reports from naval officers on this subject are Commodore Wilmot's reports that he had "Fined King Pepple 20 puncheons of oil for refusing to attend friendly Palaver" and his report that the King of Dahomey wished to send an ambassador to England.

By 1869 the West African slave trade had been gteatly reduced. The Cuban and American trades had virtually ceased. The papers in this volume deal mainly with the increasing slave trade in East Africa which was conducted largely by Arabs. Since this trade was largely conducted by land and not by sea as the West African trade was, expeditions were sent into the interior to learn of the conditions prevailing there. Also included in this volume are reports dealing with Dr Livingstone's several expeditions into Africa.

By 1869 the Atlantic slave trade had been virtually eliminated and attention turned to East Africa and the overland slave routes. The main burden of the campaign against slavery in the area fell on the resident British representatives in the region. Kirk, the most senior of these men, attempted to negotiate treaties with the Arab slavers, treaties which the Arabs seldom observed. This correspondence relates to these affairs and to the Atlantic slave trade. The volume also contains reports from Dr Livingstone of his adventures in the interior.

The state of the slave trade in East Africa is the main subject of this correspondence. The British Government sought the aid of the Portuguese and French authorities in the area for a joint campaign. Reports from naval officers detail their efforts to suppress the seaborne slave trade. British representatives tried continuously to negotiate treaties with the Arabs for the suppression of the overland route but their efforts were largely unavailing. An account of the death of Dr Livingstone is included.

The slave trades in Madagascar, Mozambique and Zanzibar are the principal subjects covered. The Portuguese and French authorities in the area opposed the trade in their colonies but the forces at their disposal were inadequate. The British Government sought and obtained from these countries increased naval forces for this purpose. Reports from British representatives in the area appear to indicate that the seaborne trade was now under control but that the overland trade largely continued.

Through its influence with the Egyptian Government it obtained the appointment of Gordon as Governor of the Sudan. Gordon's appointment and his efforts to suppress the overland route, efforts which made him unpopular in Arab circles, the conditions of liberated slaves in Madagascar, Mozambique and Zanizibar and reports from naval officers and British commissioners are contained there.

By 1882 most governments in the Middle East and East Africa had enacted laws against the slave trade. However, the trade still continued and slaves were now usually obtained from Central Africa by Arab raiding parties. European influence seldom extended far inland and information on the overland slave route comes largely from reports of explorers and missionaries. Papers dealing with the overland route together with reports from British Commissioners, naval officers-and diplomats are in this correspondence.

Much of this correspondence deals with the slave trade in Turkey and North Africa. Turkey had outlawed slavery as had all the other governments in the area but their authority was weak and British influence could only succeed in getting decrees issued. Among reports included are some from Kitchener, then attached to the Egyptian Army. Papers dealing with the total emancipation of slaves in Brazil and its effect on the condition of the liberated slaves are included. The poverty prevailing among liberated slaves in East Africa with efforts of missionaries to aid them and French schemes to recruit African labour are documented.

Three of the papers here relate to the condition of the slave population of the West Indies (Dominica Grenada, St Vincent, Barbados, Antigua, Tobago, Demerara, Berbice, St Christopher, Trinidad, Mauritius, Jamaica and the Bahamas). During this period, slavery in the West Indies was a matter of heated debate between the colonists and the anti-slavery party in Great Britain, one of whom was Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton. Among the other papers here is an interesting account of the proceedings of the Court of Criminal Justice in Berbice on the trial of a negro, Willem, for murder.
