8. The Work and Influence of Hampton: Proceedings of a Meeting Held in New York City, February 12, 1904, under the Direction of the Armstrong Association, with Addresses of Mr. Andrew Carnegie, Chairman, President Charles W. Eliot, Dr. H. B. Frissell and Dr. Booker T. Washington (New York: Lehmaier Press, [1904?]). (38 p.)

Four addresses dealing race relations in the South. All four speakers note that most people living in the North fail to understand or appreciate the problems associated with African Americans in the South. Mr. Stone has marked passages in all four addresses, particularly that of Dr. Washington, such as. “All the Negro asks is that the door which rewards industry, thrift, intelligence and character be left as wide open for him as for the foreigner who constantly comes to our country. More than this he has no right to request. Less than this a republic has no right to withhold.”
