The items in the Ravage Collection focus on African American history and were donated by Professor Emeritus Jack Ravage. Dr. Ravage worked in the Department of Journalism and Communication at the University of Wyoming from 1973-2000. This donation consists of books that he used as part of his research. The items primarily relate to the African American experience of the West. This collection complements Dr. Ravage's papers, which are located at the American Heritage Center.
