New Footnote Database – Negro Subversion

Footnote recently released a new database, Military Intelligence – Negro Subversion.  These materials come from the War Department and includes their correspondence with other agencies.  These records concern activities of black civilian and military citizens from 1917-1941.   I did some preliminary exploration and found that the collection includes several issues of the Crisis Magazine, the magazine of the NAACP.  

I assumed there would be materials in this collection relevant to citizens of Nashville and I’ve already found a few items.  Here is an example, a death notice published in the May 1919 issue of The Crisis

Dr. Gordon Phipps, of Corsicana, Tex., is dead.  He was born at Hartford, Ky., January 4, 1859 and was a graduate of Roger Williams and Meharry Medical College.
