In addition, the white Egyptians left many written references to the black population in Nubia, and in their own country. The most complete record and translation of these scripts was undertaken by Professor James Henry Breasted, Professor of Egyptology and Oriental History in the University of Chicago in his works History of Egypt, from the Earliest Times to the Persian Conquest, and his Ancient Records of Egypt series.
