Books on Utica Institute and Founder
Black Man's Burden by
Call Number: E185.97 .H658 1993
Publication Date: 1970-02-12
Booker T. Washington wrote of The Black Man's Burden, It is in this sense that I can say of the book that Mr. Holtzclaw has written that it is the story, not merely of the life of an individual, or of a school, but it is at the same time a very important chapter in the history of Negro education. Based on the urgings of various friends, Holtzclaw published the story of his life in order to tell ... the story of many others like myself who have struggled to get an education and to be of use in the world, but whose efforts will never be known. Using his experiences as a premise, Holtzclaw succeeds in relaying to his reader a narrative about the spirit and progress of Negro education in the industrial high schools of the rural south during the late 1800s.
The three books listed below tell the story of the early years of Utica Normal and Industrial Institute/Utica Junior College. The first is the biography of the founder written by his son. The second and third were written by college staff for graduate research projects.

This is a basic guide to finding and checking out books owned by the HCC libraries. Your student ID card acts as your HCC library card and is good at all the HCC campus libraries.
The HCC libraries loan books to each othe, so you can request books from another campus library. Simply talk to your campus library staff about arranging this.
You can also find out how to look for ebooks by going to the next page and viewing the PowerPoints on that subject.
