Prior to 1970 African American’s and their works were not catalogued in the Library of Congress, unless it was fiction. Dorothy B. Porter, bibliographer and curator, “who built the Moorland-Spingam Research Center at Howard University…and the first African American to graduate from Columbia University’s library school,” took on such a task. In 1970 Ms. Porter included Delilah W. Pierce and her husband Joe Pierce, one of the first African American graduates at the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania and the first Broker/CPA/Partner at John R. Pinkett insurance company, in The Negro in the United States, Library of Congress. You can also see: The Negro in the United States.
