DU BOIS, WILLIAM EDWARD BURGHARDT: Protestant Episcopal layman; b. at Great Barrington, Mass., Feb. 23, 1868. He was educated at Fisk University (B.A., 1888), Harvard (Ph.D., 1895), and the University of Berlin, and after being fellow in sociology at Harvard in 1890-1902 and traveling fellow in 1892-94, was professor in Wilberforce University (1894-96), and assistant instructor in sociology in the University of Pennsylvania (1896-97). Since 1897 he has been professor of economics and history in Atlanta University. He was general secretary of the Niagara Movement from 1905 to 1908, and, while a communicant of the Episcopal Church, interprets "its creed very broadly, so broadly, in fact, that I ought not perhaps to be considered as a member." He has written: Suppressions of the Slave Trade (New York, 1896); The Philadelphia Negro (Philadelphia, 1899); Souls of Black Folk (Chicago, 1903); and The Negro in the South (in collaboration with B. T. Washington; Philadelphia, 1907).
