He received his doctorate in English from the University of Chicago in 1926 while simultaneously serving as chairman and professor of the Department of English at Howard from 1917 to 1928. He held the same positions at Fisk University in Nashville from 1929 to 1946. In 1946 he accepted a professorship in the English department at Roosevelt University in Chicago, where he remained as professor of English and lecturer in African Cultures until his retirement in 1970. Turner was professor emeritus at Roosevelt until his death at age 77 in 1972. Turner's professional and academic interests encompassed both English and linguistics. A noted scholar of African languages and linguistics, he learned numerous West African languages, mastering five of them. He was a noted authority on Gullah, a Creole language spoken in the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia.

Scope and Contents note:
Connecting the Worlds of the African Diaspora: The Living Legacy of Lorenzo Dow Turner was a symposium held at the Anacostia Community Museum November 12-13, 2010. The keynote speaker was Emory Shaw Campbell, and other participants included Alcione M. Amos, Herb Frazier, Thomas B. Klein, Livio Sansone, and Kevin A. Yalvington. The symposium was held in association with the Word, Shout, Song exhibition, which documented the historical journey made by people from Africa, their language, and their music, to the Americas. Through words, music, and story, Lorenzo Dow Turner discovered in the 1930s that the Gullah people of Georgia and South Carolina still possessed parts of the culture and language of their enslaved ancestors, which had long been believed lost. The exhibit was on view at the Anacostia Community Museum from August 9, 2010 to July 24, 2011, during which time the Lorenzo Dow Turner Symposium was held at the museum. This collection contains video and audio recordings documenting the exhibit-related symposium.
