Scope and Content of Collection

Received at the Hoover Institution Archives in 1999, the William X. Scheinman papers consist primarily of correspondence and printed matter that reflect Scheinman's lifelong interest in African politics, particularly with respect to Kenya. Having met the Kenyan independence leader, Tom Mboya, in 1956, Scheinman was to identify himself with African causes, even while working as a businessman and investment adviser on Wall Street.
An important part of the collection consists of Scheinman's extensive correspondence with Tom Mboya. This exchange of letters, which was conducted from 1957 until Mboya's assassination in 1969, provides significant information concerning the Kenyan independence movement and its leading personalities, as well as documenting the first five years of the Kenyatta administration, in which Mboya served as Minister of Justice. In addition, the collection includes numerous speeches and writings by Mboya (see Tom Mboya File).
As one of the directors of the African-American Students Foundation, Scheinman was also involved in a program that enabled African students to attend American colleges and universities. Numerous records of this foundation are contained in the collection (see African-American Students Foundation File).
In addition, Scheinman collected extensive material about African countries besides Kenya (see Printed Matter and Subject File) and corresponded with some of the leading figures in the American civil rights movement (see Correspondence). The collection will be of most interest to African scholars, but it also reflects important aspects of modern American history, especially in the 1950s and 1960s.
