Excerpt from The Man Farthest Down: A Record of Observation and Study in Europe

In View of the rather elaborate plan I have sketched, I am certain that some of my readers Will wonder how I expected to be able, in the eight weeks to which my vacation was limited, to cover all the ground or get any definite or satisfactory notions in regard to the special matters which interested me in the places I pro posed to visit. It seems to me, therefore, that I ought to say something, by way of explana tion and introduction, as to just how this journey was made and in regard to the manner in which the impressions and facts which make up the remainder of this book were obtained.

About the Author:

Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was born a slave. He graduated from what is today Hampton University in 1875, and subsequently taught there. In 1881 he founded the forerunner of Tuskegee University. He made himself and his school two of the most well-known institutions in twentieth-century black America. He earned world-renowned recognition as an educator, social theorist, and spokesperson for African Americans.

Review:

"The book is as readable for its lively presentation of conditions in Europe as it is valuable for its conclusions."
