WASHINGTON, BOOKER T. 1856-1915.
Autograph Letter Initialed and 19 Letters Signed ("Booker T. Washington"), 9 of which are typed, to various Dodge family members, 20 pp total, various sizes, mostly on Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute letterhead, April 18, 1902, to January 6, 1915, one letter missing upper portion, some sporadic creasing.

A collection of letters signed by Washington, mostly letters of appreciation, conveying Institute news, and soliciting donations for the institute. Beginning in 1882, William E. Dodge acted as a trustee for the John F. Slater Fund for the Education of Freedmen, which was one of the largest supporters of the Washington's Tuskegee Institute. The Dodge family continued their support of Washington long afterward, and these letters record a slice of that support from Cleveland, Bayard, Grace and Elizabeth Dodge.
