Re: Scholars of Henry O. Flipper
In Response To: Scholars of Henry O. Flipper ()

As far as I can discover there is no collection of Henry O. Flipper papers. Some items, written long after he left the army, are held by members of his family.
As far as I have found, and believe me I have looked long and hard, there are very few surviving documents in Flipper's hand from the period of his military service (mid-l876 until his dismissal in June, l882). This is very frustrating because I suspect Flipper wrote and receive a fair amount of letters--and I suspect that he may have kept a journal. But if he did, this source material has not survived--or has not been found.
