Chicago: Du Sable Museum, 1994. 4p., illustrated wraps with B&W painting of Burroughs. Not in OCLC.

The Brooklyn-born African American Burroughs lived in the Soviet Union as a child after his mother attended the 1928 Comintern congress. He lived there for 17 years, returning at the end of WWII after a brief circus trapeze career. He is described here as Chicago's first Black museum curator, for he and his wife opened a museum of African American History in three rooms of their Chicago home, where Burroughs gave lectures.
