Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,563.75 (includes buyer's premium)


Signed booklet entitled "Proceedings of the Trustees of the John F. Slater Fund for the Education of Freedmen, 1887," in original paper wrappers rebound as a hardcover in blue cloth with gilt-stamped spine titling, 6 x 9, 47 pages. Signed and inscribed on the front wrapper in ink, "To Mr. Charles H. Hake, with best wishes, Rutherford B. Hayes." Bound following the booklet is a smaller pamphlet entitled "Physical Training in Education." Autographic condition: very good to fine condition, with the signed page having toning and soiling, a central vertical fold, chipping to the right edge, and a tape-repaired tear to the right age. Book condition: VG/None, with aforementioned flaws to front wrapper, a few marginal notations, and a "Library of Lawrence E. Miller" blindstamp to the last page of the booklet.

Founded in 1882 by John Fox Slater, the fund was a financial endowment established to benefit the education of African-Americans in the southern United States. Among its largest beneficiaries were the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute, the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, Spelman Seminary, and Fisk University. Hayes was one of the original trustees of the fund, as was Chief Justice Morrison Waite.
