  • Armstrong, Mrs. M.F. and Helen Ludlow. Hampton and Its Students, By Two of Its Teachers. With Fifty Cabin and Plantation Songs, arranged by Thomas P. Fenner. 256pp.Illustrated. Original green gilt-lettered cloth. First Edition. Putnam's, 1874.

Founded by Christian missionaries after the Civil War in 1868 to provide education to newly-freed ex-slaves, the Hampton Institute in Virginia became one of the first “historically-Black” universities, young Booker T. Washington being one of its first students and teachers before he went on to head Tuskegee in the 1880s. Soon adding a formal education program for Native Americans, Hampton – which is still in existence – has numbered among its graduates prominent African-American businessmen, educators, government officials, entertainers and athletes. See the listing below for a letter written by a Hampton student of 1906 who, as a young Black lawyer, would later incorporate what was to become the cosmetics empire of Madam C.J. Walker.
