The Donnell Lewis papers, which date from circa 1990 and measure .56 linear feet, document Lewis' work on an art poster featuring Marian Anderson, which he was commissioned to create in support of the 1990 Census Bureau campaign to reach the African American population. The collection is comprised of correspondence, drawings, leaflets, LP records, pamphlets, proposals, sketchbooks and videocassettes.
