    Guide to the Henry Charles Lea Microfilm Collection
    (2018-04-01) University of Pennsylvania Libraries
    The Henry Charles Lea Library Microfilm Collection is a composite of archival manuscript and printed material gathered by Kenneth M. Setton during his tenure as Henry Charles Lea Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania. As such the collection reflects the contours of his research in Levantine diplomatic relations with Byzantium and the Papacy, as well as the Crusades. As a result, the collection contains only selected portions of major archival series, isolated source texts, as well as assorted miscellanies.

This index was compiled during 2023 and contains more than 1,700 articles written by Spady indexed under several key terms, many of which deal with Philadelphia arts, culture, and African American history. While not an exhaustive list of everything Spady wrote for the Philadelphia New Observer, the index is based on clippings made and selected by Spady and thus offers a particularly valuable insight into Spady's professional work, academic interests, community engagement, and philosophy of life.

    The Diary of Ray Evans, 1939-1945
    (University of Pennsylvania Libraries, 2015) Evans, Ray, 1915-2007
    The papers of Hollywood lyricist and University of Pennsylvania alumnus Ray Evans (Wharton class of 1936) were donated to the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts in 2011 by the Ray and Wyn Ritchie Evans Foundation. Among the treasures in the collection is the songster’s diary, kept during the war years of 1939-1945. Written in pen on looseleaf notebook paper and bound by a small three ring binder, it may have been one of several diaries kept by Evans, but today it is the only one that survives. As a means to encourage exploration of these formative years, Evans’ lyrics and music in general, and his collection of personal and professional papers here at Penn we have transcribed and digitized the diary, presenting it as an online flip book. Images of the diary pages and a transcription for easier reading are presented side by side. The transcription here was created by John F. Anderies and first published to the web in 2015 at the URL . The fully digitized diary is also available online at . The contents of this diary are copyright The Ray & Wyn Ritchie Evans Foundation.
