Biographical Note

Arthur S. Logan

1909-2000

Arthur S. Logan pursued his life work through both musical and visual arts. Arthur Logan as choirmaster and singer was an active member of Chicago's gospel music community from the 1930s through the 1990s. Logan founded a number of gospel singing groups that performed in churches, auditoriums, and on recordings. Logan's music programs and recordings educated audiences about gospel's roots in spirituals and other African American folk music. His work encompassed church music from traditional hymns and spirituals, turn-of-the-century classical pieces, and gospel choir singing as it flowered from the 1930s through the 1960s. As a young commercial artist during the Chicago Black Renaissance, “Art” Logan joined the artistic team that created The Negro in Chicago 1779-1927and 1779-1929, also known as the Intercollegiate Wonder Books Volume 1 and 2 (1927-1929), under the direction of Frederic H. Robb, These widely read works definitively portrayed cultural and socioeconomic achievements in the African American community during the 1920s Chicago Black Renaissance, while elevating the study of African American history.

Arthur Logan was born in Greenwood, Mississippi on October 20, 1909 to Sidney S. and Leonia (Thomas) Logan. The family migrated to Chicago around 1915, settling in the Bronzeville area. Sidney Logan worked as a building superintendent and eventually the family lived in the Englewood neighborhood. Leonia Logan, a choir singer, left a number of gospel and hymnal works after her death in 1982. Arthur was joined by a younger sister, Christabelle. He attended Raymond Elementary School and then enrolled in Wendell Phillips High School in 1924.

At Phillips, Logan drew fully from the school's rich resources in art and music. He participated in the glee club, male quartette, Music Lover's Club, and at least five theatrical productions, as well as student council and booster club. Described as "a genius in mechanical art" in the 1927 Red and Black Phillips yearbook, Logan studied music with Mildred Bryant-Jones, and "mechanical arts" with Oscar J. Jordan and Albert B. Lovett. He also drew inspiration from Dr. N. [Nathaniel] Clark Smith, renowned African American composer and bandmaster who had previously taught at Phillips.

By 1929 Logan was working on his degree at Crane Junior College, followed by further studies until he graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He studied as well at the Ramon Girvin School of Music (1936). At Crane Logan served as secretary in the S. G. [Student Graduates] Educational Club, whose members sought mutual support as they pursued degrees in their chosen professions.

Logan worked on Frederic H. Robb's The Negro in Chicago 1779-1927and 1779-1929, also known as the Intercollegiate Wonder Books Volume 1 and 2 (1927-1929)) and in 1929 he was named art editor on the staff. The Wonder Books drew personnel from Crane Junior College and the Art Institute, as well as Lewis Institute, the University of Illinois, and Chicago Teachers College. Working on the Wonder Books, Logan rubbed elbows with some high school friends who constituted a portion of the Chicago Black Renaissance and Bronzeville's future leadership. These included Edith Sampson, Irene McCoy Gaines, Joseph Bibb, Hortense Love and nearly fifty others in addition to editor Frederic H. Robb ("Hammurabi") himself. Decades later, Logan would be illustrating Hammurabi's unique African American history Calendar when it regularly issued from the House of Knowledge bookstore.

In 1933 Arthur Logan married Minnie Earlene Jemison, who would some twenty-five years later establish her own "Chez Pompadour" beauty salon with husband Arthur as manager. Having joined the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, Logan also pursued his commercial art career during the uncertainties of the Depression. Simultaneously he appeared as vocal soloist at social events, such as sorority pledge installations, and joined famed choral director Dr. J. Wesley Jones and the “Bandanna Sketches” on WGN Radio in 1935. Logan began work with the choirs at Monumental Baptist Church, and a group named "Goodwill Male Chorus" recorded several spirituals under his direction in 1937. Logan also appeared in several operas such as the 1939 National Negro Opera Company production in Chicago of La Traviata. In 1939 Logan appeared with the Clef Barons in concert with Dr. Jones' Metropolitan Church Choir for the annual Chicago Tribune Chicagoland Music Festival, and Logan continued to work with Dr. Jones at these events during the 1940s and 1950s.

In 1942 Logan assumed the directorship of the Goodwill Spiritual Choir, one of several choirs at Monumental Baptist Church. By 1943, Logan's stature within the Baptist denomination led to his shared directorship of the annual Baptist conventions' 1,000-voice choir along with such luminaries as Thomas A. Dorsey. He joined J&R Motor Supply in 1944 as display artist, and later served as display director before leaving the firm in 1951. Logan established a new choral group, the Arthur Logan Singers, in 1949 after participating in a variety of civic programs presented to improve race relations in Chicago. During the 1940s and 1950s Logan's choirs joined in the Chicago Folk Festival held annually at Orchestra Hall, as well as open-air park concerts, political rallies, and "Negro Newsreel" at local movie houses. They appeared at the Jewish People's Institute in Lawndale (1947, 1955) and the Billiken Music Festival (1957).

As the new gospel music became established in conservative churches such as Monumental Baptist, Logan began serious research into the roots of African American gospel music. Logan recorded the Goodwill Spiritual Choir on Folkways Records with folk singer Ella Jenkins in 1957. This was followed by Logan's composition "Birth of the Spiritual," in 1959, which traced the musical roots of the Negro spiritual through the history of African slaves in America. Logan served as director for a series about the post-Civil War reconstruction period, "Ordeal by Fire," on WTTW-TV (1959-1960), in which the Goodwill Spiritual Choir provided musical accompaniment.

The 1960s saw more Logan recordings. The Arthur Logan Singers created Roots, pairing the choir with the Franz Jackson Original Jass All-Stars for contemporary interpretations of gospel standards. Arthur Logan composed another gospel history program, "The Birth of Negro Gospel Music," in 1962. From 1964 to 1966 Logan and the Goodwill Spiritual Choir performed several times on "Jubilee Showcase," a weekly program on local television hosted by Sid Ordower that featured many outstanding gospel singing groups found in Chicago and elsewhere at that time. Logan's choirs became known as “outstanding television group(s)” and “radio and TV singers.”

Under auspices of the R. Nathaniel Dett Club, Logan in 1964 directed the musical drama “Steps Toward Freedom” which included child performers. That same year “We Shall Overcome: Songs of the Southern Freedom Movement” raised funds under Logan's direction in partnership with A. R. Leak's Unity Co-operative Progressive Organization. Continuing his work through national choral music associations, Logan directed the massed choirs at the National Convention of Gospel Choirs and Choruses in 1965.

Arthur Logan stepped down as director of the Goodwill Spiritual Choir in 1970. However, he would continue to direct choirs at churches other than Monumental Baptist, especially at Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church. He also worked at the Goldblatt Brothers Department Store, creating all of the hand-lettered calligraphic signage in display windows and within the store itself. He retired from Goldblatt's in 1976.

In 1987 Logan's wife, Minnie, died. At that time he was invited to sing bass with the Chicago Umbrian Glee Club, a venerable African American men's chorus founded in 1895. He then organized the Old Time Barbershop Quartet under the Umbrian auspices, and used this group to illustrate the history of barbershop singing. Despite his age, Logan continued to be active in professional organizations such as the Chicago Musicians Association. He was invited to share his memories at a Chicago Friends of the Amistad Center oral history program (1993-1994).

Arthur Logan passed away on June 3, 2000.

Biographical Note

Frederic H. H. Robb (also known as Fidepe H. Hammurabi, but popularly simply called Hammurabi)

1900-1978

Frederic H. H. Robb was the editor of the 1927 Intercollegian Wonder Book, or, The Negro in Chicago, 1779-1927 and The Wonder Book: The Negro in Chicago, 1779 to 1929, together also known as the Intercollegiate Wonder Books Volume 1 and 2 (1927-1929). The "Wonder Books" stirred pride in, and discussion of, Chicago's African American achievements. Considered treasured keepsakes, the "Wonder Books" helped ignite the Black Chicago Renaissance. During the mid-1930s, Robb assumed the name of Fidepe H. Hammurabi, and also became a nationally-known orator and advocate of Pan-Africanism. He founded a bookstore in Chicago called the House of Knowledge (1950) and promoted pan-African and Afrocentric study and activism.

Frederic H. H. Robb was born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1900, to Robert and Martha Robb. He had two siblings, Beatrice and George. Robb graduated from Hartford Public High School with honors in 1920. He attended Howard University and received his B.A. in 1924. At Howard he led the debate team for 4 years, served on the student council, was editor of the weekly publication Hill Top and the annual Bison. He was a member of Kappa Sigma and Delta Sigma Phi, and served as cabinet officer in the YMCA. He worked summers as lecturer and concert arranger in “large cities of the East” under auspices not listed.

In 1927 he received his J. D. degree at Northwestern University, where he had continued his activist work through debate team, membership on the Chicago YMCA executive board, and presidency of the Washington Intercollegiate Club of Chicago. He became a member of Alpha Phi Alpha and worked summers for the Chicago Board of Education as playground instructor. Under Robb's leadership, and with office space provided by the YMCA, the Intercollegiate Club undertook publication of the 1927 Intercollegian Wonder Book, or, The Negro in Chicago, 1779-1927, and The Wonder Book: The Negro in Chicago, 1779 to 1929, also known as the Intercollegiate Wonder Books Volumes 1 and 2 (1927-1929). The books depicted members of Chicago's growing black middle classes as both educated and activist.

After Volume 1 was published, Robb embarked on a year of study at the London School of Economics in 1928, where he became deeply involved in London's active pan-African movement, forming relationships with African students there and with American Negro expatriates. He traveled to Vienna, and then through Africa, gathering both knowledge and contacts and then returning to Chicago intent on promoting knowledge of the African component of African American history. He also made contact with as many African students and immigrants as possible, and joined the West African Students Union. In 1928-1929 he founded the International [Negro] Student Alliance, serving as director,

Robb had promised, and therefore proceeded, to edit Volume 2 of the Wonder Books in 1929. This volume greatly expanded information found in Volume 1 about not only pan-African issues but also the organizational status of Chicago's black unions, women activists, and students. Volume 2 was published in 1929 to great local acclaim, with a statement of intention to present a third volume to celebrate the approaching 1933 Century of Progress World's Fair in Chicago. However, the YMCA determined that the Intercollegiate Club should relinquish its office space therein. Although offers of alternative space were made, the third volume never appeared. The 1929 stock market crash precipitated a series of changes impacting an already-suffering African American community.

In 1931 Robb decided not to continue his law career, citing his disillusioning discovery of the profession's central role in “the fix”--white supremacy in the United States. He became involved with promoting the Royal Ashanti Singers and Dancers in the group's struggle for inclusion in the Century of Progress. He determined to make his life's mission African American enlightenment.

In the mid-1930s, Robb changed his name to Fidepe H. Hammurabi and decided to remain in Chicago. He became a prominent speaker at the renowned Washington Park outdoor forum, continuing his outreach there for several decades. He took up the cause of Ethiopia after the Italian invasion, and became a leader in Chicago's huge movement to defend Ethiopia. As an objector to America's participation in World War II he was arrested in 1942 with Elijah Muhammad and other Chicago protesters, and charged with promoting draft evasion. He was vindicated when the charges were dropped. By now he had traveled and studied widely and had amassed an extensive collection of materials rich in African history and culture. He organized the [World Wide] Friends of Africa, and in 1950 he founded the House of Knowledge (first known as Century Service Exchange), a bookstore and meeting place for Afrocentric study with its adjoining Ethiopian Research Library. There he continued until his death in 1978 to publish, lecture, and organize in order to promote international knowledge and understanding of African Americans' history.

Scope and Content

The Arthur Logan Papers include materials from Arthur Logan's lifelong career as gospel choir director of the Goodwill Spiritual Singers at Monumental Baptist Church and the Arthur Logan Singers, along with choirs he directed in other churches (1930s-1970s). There is also material from the years Logan sang bass with the Chicago Umbrian Glee Club, after 1987. Logan's collection of printed music (songs and compilations) constitutes a major part of the collection. This includes some 250 items, primarily jubilee spirituals, gospel, classical works, and traditional men's group repertoire, from the 1890s through the 1970s. Items relating to the various choirs Logan directed or sang with include a large number of concert programs (1960s-1990s). Some of these detail themed choral programming written by Logan himself, such as “The Birth of Negro Gospel Music.” Other programs and some organizational material from gospel or choral music organizations, such as the Chicago Music Association and the National Association of Negro Musicians, reflect Logan's advocacy and outreach activity, as he strove to educate audiences about the history of gospel and its relationship to the folk music that became popular in the 1960s.

The collection contains several recordings made by the Goodwill Spiritual Choir and the Arthur Logan Singers from 1937 to 1961. Photographs of these choirs may also be found in the collection. Many of the informative concert programs contain pictures of the choirs. Material relating to the production of recordings includes information about other Logan recordings and television programming not available in this collection.

The Logan Papers also include some of Arthur Logan's published illustrative work and his advertising copy from his long career as a commercial artist. Of particular interest are four extremely rare Red and Black Wendell Phillips High School yearbooks (1924-1927), illustrated with the designs and drawings Logan contributed as student editor. These volumes document Chicago's premier high school for African Americans when it flourished in 1920s Bronzeville and include numerous references to persons who soon became notable adults in Chicago and beyond. Not included in the Logan Papers but available from the Harsh Research Collection holdings is the two-volume The Negro in Chicago 1779-1927, also known as the Intercollegiate Wonder Books (1927, 1929), compiled by Frederic H. H. Robb with the Washington Intercollegiate Club of Chicago.

Logan's relationship to the Chicago Black Renaissance is embodied in both the Red and Black yearbooks and the Wonder Books. Both show him working with other artists, writers, and performers who were part of that movement. Logan's enduring interest in African American history and culture at home and abroad is also realized in the House of Knowledge Calendars which were produced by his friend Hammurabi (Frederic H. H. Robb) and in which Arthur Logan provided many illustrations. His work as commercial artist may be found in the designs and drawings of this collection, particularly in the many concert programs designed and illustrated by him. His other published illustrations here are included in volumes of folk stories and poems authored by Ruth Allen Fouche. Logan's employment during the 1970s at Goldblatt Brothers Department Store is represented here in two photographs of his distinctively lettered signs at Goldblatt’s. The researcher will also find Logan's calligraphy, cover designs, and ad layouts scattered throughout the collection's sheet music, concert programs, and organization records.

The Logan Papers have been arranged into 13 series:

Series 1: Biographical (1958-1980)

This small series contains a few items relating to Logan's employment in fields other than music. Included is the J&R Motor Supply Company (1945-1956) and Goldblatt Brothers Inc. Department Store (1970s). Also included is a small amount of correspondence relating to the Logan family residence in Lake Meadows (a racially integrated urban renewal housing development for middle class residents on Chicago's South Side). The series has been arranged into subject files and chronologically within those.

Series 2: Correspondence (1949-1994)

Correspondence placed in this series does not relate directly to Logan's work as choir director or singer. That correspondence is included with the particular choir or organization's records. Of interest here are greeting cards Logan created, and correspondence with an overseas researcher relating to Chicago Black Renaissance critic and journalist Dan Burley. Arranged into three folders, as labeled.

A Correspondence Series sub-series (1970-1978) is devoted to the correspondence and Black history materials that were generated by Arthur Logan's lifelong relationship to Frederic H. H. Robb (known after the 1920s as Hammurabi). It includes an obituary about Hammurabi written by Logan in 1978. Files are arranged chronologically after the biographical information. Several House of Knowledge Calendars published by Hammurabi are stored separately (Oversized Box 18).

Series 3: Manuscripts, Designs, and Drawings

Sub-series 1: Manuscripts (1958-2000). This series provides the drafts of several musical programs created by Arthur Logan. Some are limited to lyrics, and some possibly were never produced. Various speaking notes and comments on other programming are foldered together. Arranged chronologically.

Sub-series 2: Designs and Drawings (1948-1993). As a commercial artist, Arthur Logan designed a variety of items on a regular basis, including award certificates, proclamations, formal invitations, logo images, and program covers. Of special interest in this series are the drawings that Arthur Logan created for two literary works by Ruth Allen Fouche (see Series 7 for listing of original publications). The researcher should note that several items relate to particular organizations with material in other series (such as R. Nathaniel Dett Club). Also, many files in Music sub-series, especially Logan Choirs and Printed Music, include Arthur Logan’s artwork and calligraphy. Materials are arranged alphabetically by type of item.

Series 4: Wendell Phillips High School Yearbooks (Red and Black)

Yearbooks from 1924 through 1928 are arranged chronologically.

Series 5: Music

The Music Series, by far the largest in the collection, has been divided into 5 sub-series to reflect Arthur Logan's own work as choir director and singer: These include materials relating to choral groups directed by Logan; musical programs and church services he attended (and whose programs he annotated); funeral programs he collected; the enormous store of printed music he had acquired, used, and annotated; and some manuscript arrangements, mostly by Umbrian Glee Club singer John H. Eskridge.

Sub-series 1: Arthur Logan Choirs (1937-1999). Here may be found the earliest mention of Logan's professional singing, as a member of the Clef Barons Quartette in 1938. Following chronologically are materials from the Goodwill Spiritual Choir (1945-1970); the Arthur Logan Singers (1961-1975); the Modernettes Club of St. John's Baptist Church; the Old Time Barbershop Quartet (1990s); and the Chicago Umbrian Glee Club (1990s). Following these items is information about recordings made by Logan's various choir groups, arranged chronologically by original (if possible) recording date. The researcher should note that Logan may have had other recordings made, and that only four (4) published sound recordings and one amateur recording may be found in Logan's papers (Series 11). Of special interest is that Logan and his Goodwill Spiritual Choir participated in Jubilee Showcase, a gospel TV program produced in Chicago and hosted by Sid Ordower in the mid 1960s.

Sub-series 2: Other Logan Music Organizations, Events, Programs (1941-1998). This sub-series includes materials from Arthur Logan's participation in several professional musician's organizations, such as the R. Nathaniel Dett Club of Music and Allied Arts (an affiliate of the National Association of Negro Musicians, Inc.). Most of these items are concert programs or convention booklets, arranged alphabetically by name of organization, chronologically therein. Immediately following are a list of churches and a list of nonreligious organizations whose musical events Arthur Logan attended as audience member, also arranged alphabetically and internally chronologically. Included in the list of churches is a folder of Monumental Baptist Church material not directly related to Arthur Logan's own choir directing there.

Sub-series 3: Funeral Programs (1945-1999). This short series contains fewer than ten funeral programs, some annotated by Arthur Logan. Several notable names include Joseph Harrison Jackson (Rev.), and Ethel Mae Griffin (Mrs.). They are arranged alphabetically.

Sub-series 4: Printed Music (1887-1981). Arthur Logan's collection of choral music includes some 30 songbooks or other collections and approximately 220 individual songs. The repertoire includes works transcribed by James Weldon Johnson and J. Rosamond Johnson; jubilee and spiritual arrangements; gospel's “golden age” in the 1940s through the 1960s; classical composers such as Handel and Coleridge-Taylor; musical theater writers including Oscar Hammerstein and Jerome Kern; and popular songwriters such as Johnny Mercer and Cole Porter. Some items are limited to photocopies only, as indicated. Occasional works are notated by Arthur Logan or an unknown person, either as directions for singers or, more rarely, as title page or other design added by Arthur Logan. Of interest is the Utica Jubilee Singers Spirituals, as sung at the Utica Normal & Industrial Institute of Mississippi (1930) with early transcriptions, and a 1948 edition of the National Convention of Gospel Choirs and Choruses songbook (cover missing). The series is arranged alphabetically by title, with the A-Z songbook and collection titles first, followed by individual songs, also alphabetically by title.

Sub-series 5: Music Mss. And Other Materials. These primarily consist of handwritten arrangements created by John H. Eskridge, who was a member of the Chicago Umbrian Glee Club. At the end of the series are folders of untitled, incomplete, or lyrics-only material. Items are mostly arranged alphabetically by title or by topic, undated.

Series 6: General Organizations and Programs (1948-1995)

Included here are such organizations as the NAACP, the Sunset Hills Golf Club, and event programs not related directly to music. Of particular interest is the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, of which Arthur Logan was a member. The items are arranged alphabetically by name, with organizational programs preceding single-event programs.

Series 7: Booklets and Pamphlets (1923-1990)

The small number of titles in this series includes two published works by Ruth Allen Fouche containing Arthur Logan's illustrations, an article on Dan Burley by Daniel Gugolz, and several works of African American history. Works are arranged alphabetically by title.

Series 8: Serials (1959-1995)

Three issues of American Visions (1993-1995) are included, along with magazines containing material on African America history and culture. Arranged alphabetically by serial title.

Series 9: Clippings

Ranging from 1943 to 1999, these general clipping files relate to mostly local African American issues and history. Also found in this series are images clipped by Arthur Logan for use in his commercial art work.

Series 10: Subject Research Files

These materials mostly involve African American history or culture and appear to have been collected by Arthur Logan for that purpose. They have been assigned arbitrary topic headings and arranged alphabetically by topic.

Series 11: Audio Recordings (1937-1998)

Four of the sound recordings made by Arthur Logan and featuring his choirs are available in this series. Two of these recordings were reissued in newer formats. Church Choirs, Vocal Groups, and Preachers (with Goodwill Male Chorus) is a Document Records CD that includes a 1937 recording of the Chorus with Arthur Logan. The original LP, Negro Folk Rhythms with Ella Jenkins and the Goodwill Spiritual Choir (Folkways Records), is found in this collection on CD as African American Folk Rhythms. A cassette tape recorded by an unknown person during a live concert reflects the recording made from that concert, Roots, also found in this collection. Recordings are arranged chronologically, using original recording date if known.

Series 12: Photographs (circa 1920-1990)

Just over one hundred photographs are included, featuring Logan and his family, friends, and colleagues. Many of the photos date from the 1920s and 1930s. They appear to represent fellow students, particularly from Logan's years working on the Wonder Books (late 1920s). A small number of photos derive from Arthur Logan's position as commercial artist at Goldblatt Brothers Department Store (1970s). There are several photos of the Goodwill Spiritual Singers and other groups at Monumental Baptist Church.

Series 13: Memorabilia

Items include two paper fans, one autographed by a group that included Geraldine de Haas; four plaques from the Park Manor Baptist Church, the Chicago Umbrian Glee Club, Ebenezer Gospel Chorus, and the October Club of Monumental Baptist Church; and two trophies from Greater St. John Baptist Gospel Choir and C.C.F. [?], all honoring Arthur Logan.

Researchers should also note that shelved with the Arthur Logan Papers are 63 published works donated from his personal library. The works reflect Logan's studies in African American music, literature, art, and history.
