The story of Hampton Institute has been often told and is familiar to great numbers of appreciative friends. The dramatic career of General Armstrong, the teachings which he impressed in many striking aphorisms, the reminiscences of devoted teachers, the impressions of observant visitors from many lands—these, with the various publications of the school itself, have created an extensive and widely disseminated literature. Few educational institutions in the United States have received, or have deserved to receive, so much scrutiny or praise. It has seemed, however, to the Trustees appropriate, and it was the desire of the late Principal, that at the end of a half–century of its life a general survey should be made of the aims and achievements of the school, and in the following pages the attempt is made to sketch the history of its foundation and growth.
