About meRalph Ellison (1 March 1913 - 16 April 1994), American novelist and literary scholar. I'm best known as the author of The Invisible Man which won a National Book Award in 1953. I also wrote Shadow and Act (1964) and Going to the Territory (1986). I was born in Oklahoma and studied for a couple of years at Tuskegee Institute before going to New York City. I joined the Merchant Marines during World War II. I had several manuscripts in process at the time of my death which were later published.
About my libraryEllison's library is now at the Library of Congress, and was cataloged from an inventory of that collection.
