Booker T Washington -- February 9, 2012

Educator Booker T Washington was very influential in the African American community and in the wider culture in the early 20th Century.

Doctor Peter Henri Van Der Weyde wrote the series of articles which gave this blog its name. Among his many accomplishments was taking some of the first Daguerreotypes in the United States. PH's grandson, William Manley Van der Weyde, took this photo of Booker T Washington, which was published in Putnam's Monthly Magazine, October, 1907.
