Opis: Twenty-Two Years' Work of the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute at Hampton, Virginia - Author Unknown

Excerpt from Twenty-Two Years' Work of the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute at Hampton, Virginia: Records of Negro and Indian Graduates and Ex-Students With Historical and Personal Sketches and Testimony on Important Race Questions From Within and Without, to Which Are Added, by Courtesy of Messrs. Putnam's Sons, N. Y. Some of the Songs of the Races G
This reliance has been justified by the fact that its work continues and that its expenses, which have, of course, grown in due proportion with its growth, have continued to be met - not without hard work - $60,000 having to be raised annually from private contributions outside of any other sources of supply.
It seems proper now to put into more permanent form a record of Hampton's now twenty-five years' work, and especially the record of its graduates, which is its permanent test. This book is the outcome of this belief, and a response, indeed, to wishes expressed by many.
Friends of Hampton and those who like to trace back the streams of influence to their source, will be glad to find here General Armstrong's own review of his life work - the only such he has ever taken time to write - from the first idea of the plan on which it is still developing, and farther yet, from the years of unconscious preparation and direction.
They will enjoy too the "Reminiscences" of the School's early days, by its first Treasurer, and genial friend, Gen. J. F. B. Marshall, (Paymaster General of Massachusetts Troops on the staff of its "war Governor" Andrews), to whose business reputation, integrity and skilful management of its finances, the School owed much of its early success and growth in public confidence - and whose lamented death, since the above lines were written, makes doubly precious to us these last kindly words from his pen.
Illustrations of the School as it now is, in pictures, maps and condensed statistics, are also given.
The Record of Graduates and ex-students, which forms a large part of the book - as its facts form the chief substance and value of the School's work - has been prepared with much careful labor, extending over more than two years, by Miss A. M. Hobbs and Miss A. E. Cleaveland, whose voluntary services as Graduates' Correspondents have been of great value to Hampton and its students.
