Harlan today, Jan. 22, 2010, after a long illness. He was 87. One of the leading scholars of his generation, he is best known for his monumental work on the fourteen-volume Booker T. Washington Papers, his many articles on Washington, and his two-volume biography of Booker T. Washington that won two Bancroft Prizes and the Pulitzer Prize for Biography in 1984. Louis also served as president of the Southern Historical Society, the Organization of American Historians, and the American Historical Association. Ray Smock -- R. B.
