Lorenzo Dow Turner Field Notebook OCG -Extra Grand Sheets 472 - 503, 1951
About the Project
This notebook was compiled by Lorenzo Dow Turner (1890-1972) while conducting field research in Nigeria, on a Fulbright Research Award from March 1951 through December 1951. Dr. Turner was fascinated with the origins of the African diaspora in countries like America and Brazil so Turner focused his scholarship on drawing conclusions and highlighting the similarities of commonly associated patterns of speech, processes of thought, and ways of life so typically exemplified in Black communities in the West.
