Morgan State University Acquires Papers of Historian Lathan Windley

Morgan State University in Baltimore has acquired the papers of historian Lathan A. Windley, an associate professor of history at the university from 1963 until his death in 1982 at the age of 42.

Windley taught courses in United States history, colonial history, Afro-American history, American Negro slavery, the Civil War and Reconstruction, and the French Revolution.

Windley also edited the four-volume compilation, “Runaway Slave Advertisements: A Documentary History from the 1730s to 1790” (Greenwood, 1983) and authored “A Profile of Runaway Slaves in Virginia and South Carolina from 1730 through 1787” (Routledge, 1995).

The collection at MSU’s Earl S. Richardson Library, was donated by Windley’s wife, Flossie Windley, a retired MSU professor. The collection includes Windley’s teaching notes, course materials, research files, writings, books, articles and papers, certificates, photographs, and other correspondence.

A native of Beaufort, North Carolina, Windley earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history from North Carolina Central University in Durham. He earned a doctorate in history from the University of Iowa in 1974.
