the Suzanne Comhaire-Sylvain archive - the papers of a female Haitian anthropologist come to Stanford

Over the summer Stanford Libraries acquired the papers of Suzanne Comhaire-Sylvain, a pioneering Haitian woman anthropologist. Fatoumata Seck, a grad student in the department of French and Italian, was responsible for bringing the collection to our attention. Thanks to support from the department, she has already processed it, making its contents available to researchers. Her engaging story about the collection and its journey to Stanford are recounted in her own words in ReMix, the SULAIR Newsletter.
