The biography of Booker T. Washington from which this article is adapted was begun sixteen years ago by Marquis James. Mr. James, who had twice won the Pulitzer prize for history, felt that a full-scale biography of this complicated man, based on Washington’s own papers, local records, and interviews, was long overdue. Mr. James died in 1955 before the research was completed, and his widow undertook to finish the book. This fascinating study will be published by the Houghton Mifflin Company.
