Booker T. Washington Papers Volume 7

1903-4. Assistant editor, Barbara S. Kraft

The phenomenal impact of Booker T. Washington on his time is underscored in this volume, documenting both Washington's continuing influence upon President Theodore Roosevelt and the growing dissatisfaction of some blacks with Washington's philosophy and leadership. The letters provide social historians and laymen alike with an abundant store of information on the man many consider to be the most influential figure in black history.

"The Washington Papers continue to provide a rich load of material for social historians. Intelligently and imaginatively edited, they illuminate not only the life of Booker T. Washington but the several worlds in which he lived."--Allan H. Spear, Journal of American History

On the subject of Washington "There is no better source to consult than Louis R. Harlan's biography and the first . . . volumes of the Washington papers."--New York Review of Books

"A major enterprise in Black historiography."--Times Literary Supplement

Louis R. Harlan is professor of history at the University of Maryland and the author of Booker T. Washington: The Making of a Black Leader, 1856-1901. Raymond W.
