Biographical [series]

The Biographical series (1900-2000, approximately 2.5 linear feet) contains awards, correspondence, news clippings, notes, slides, and video reels. The majority of this material provides information on Randall's life prior to the founding and subsequent rise in popularity of the Broadside Press, with some outlier material dated between the 1960s and 1980s. This series documents: incoming and outgoing letters sent between Randall and his friends and family members, including guardianship over his nephew Phillip; material regarding Randall's military career during World War II and his family's military careers starting from 1900; and correspondence and material related to Randall's overseas travels to the South Pacific in the 1940s, the Soviet Union (now Russia) in 1966, and Africa in the 1970s. Of note in this series is the award honoring Randall as the poet laureate of Detroit in 1981.
