Augustus Granville Dill(November 30, 1882 — March 8, 1956) was born in Portsmouth, Ohio. His parents were John Dill and Elizabeth Jackson. He received his B.A. from Atlanta University in 1906, received a second B.A. from Harvard in 1908, and received his M.A. in 1909 from Harvard.
While studying for his master's degree at Harvard, he came under the mentorship of W. E. B. Du Bois. He was a member of the NAACP, and his résumé is decorated with many different jobs, from business manager of The Crisis and The Brownies' Book to curator, and to musician (pianist). The Brownies' Book was a children's book that helped African-American children gain a better self-image. During his career in academia, he made early and major contributions to race relations in labor. He never married, and in 1928 was arrested for homosexual activities. He died at age 73 in Louisville, Kentucky, where he had moved in 1951 to live with his widowed sister.
