Wm. Cyrus Reed Archive: Collection & Scope (African Studies)

This collection consists of the papers and research materials of Dr. Wm. Cyrus Reed.

Dr. Reed received his doctorate from Indiana University in 1989 in Political Science and has served in administration, teaching, and research capacities with the Indiana State Government, Ball State University, the American University in Cairo, and Wabash College, amongst others. Reed generously donated his materials to the African Studies Collection so that students and scholars could benefit from his extensive research on AIDS in Africa, Somalia, and Zimbabwe (Rhodesia). His academic pursuits also fall into many other categories and topics for Africanists, and the collection serves as a valuable resource for the Indiana University scholarly community.
