Unrecorded memorial keepsake for Booker T. Washington, educator, author, popular speaker, and founder of Tuskegee Institute. This keepsake—which gathers epigrams and short prose pieces by the noted orator—is beautifully printed in various type-faces, with typesetting and presswork done by students of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute in Alabama.  The typography was designed by Louis S. Tenette, instructor of printing at Tuskegee and later newspaperman in New Orleans and Los Angeles.¹
