1 Title:   Roberta Hodgson papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Hodgson, Roberta, 1875-1965  
  Dates:   circa 1910-1965  
The collection consists of primarily Roberta Hodgson's working notes for her writings in academia and her career. Most of her notes cover topics related to foreign policy, diplomacy, and race. Box 1 to 5 concentrate on Robert Hodgson's notes with the League of Nations and other foreign excursions, including her time spent in China. These boxes include Hodgson's extensive research for her publications and teaching. Box 6 is devoted to Roberta Hodgson's observations about blacks in the 1910s, where she uses Athens, Georgia as a case study. Her original research is entitled "Types and Traits of the Negroes of Athens, Georgia" and covers 1911 to 1918. Hodgson attempts to categorize blacks based on physical and psychological traits. She further divides blacks into groups determined by "race" (skin tone), county/city association, education, and occupation. Box 7 contains three photographs, presumably of Hodgson and her friends and family, and a research ledger about her work. Oversized Folder 1 holds several pieces of art and heraldry.
