Research files were compiled by Donaldson for his dissertation research, published essays, and course lectures. Files may include photocopied articles, handwritten notes, bibliographies, and other lists.

Richard Reid, Gette Seabrook, and James Yaeargens. The group is pictured outside the Harlem Renaissance hub on West 41st Street where Alston taught art classes.
