Monroe Nathan Work marries Florence Evelyn Hendrickson. Greatly assisted by his wife, Work will publish "The Negro Year Book", and annual encyclopedia of African American achievement. He will later publish "A Bibliography of the Negro in Africa and American" (1928) with over 17,000 entries. Reviewers will laud it as "absolutely indispensable" and call it "a monument of which any race may well be proud." It will be reprinted in 1965.
