Frissell, The Builder.

Separately-issued memorial tribute to Hollis Burke Frissell (1852–1917), second principal and first Black principal of Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute in Virginia (now Hampton University).

The address was delivered at Hampton by Robert Russa Moton at the dedication of the Frissell Memorial Organ in Ogden Hall. Moton lauds Frissell for “his substantial contribution to social progress in this country and the world,” for his development of the campus’ buildings, grounds, and apparatus, and for his love of music. (p5) Tuskegee Institute’s library is located in the Hollis Burke Frissell building.

Moton was a graduate of Hampton and a school administrator there. He succeeded Booker T. Washington as Tuskegee Institute’s principal.
