First edition. After graduating from the Tuskegee Institute, William Henry Holtzclaw wanted to start his own school in Mississippi. He settled in Utica and founded the Utica Institute and within a short time it enrolled more than 500 students, had a faculty of 35 instructiors, and sat on property exdeeding 1,700 acres. This is his autobiography, which Booker T. Washington calls "not merely the life of an individual, or of a school, but it is at the same time a very important chapter in the history of Negro education" (p.9, Introduction). A very scarce dust jacket.
