A seemingly unrecorded pocket-sized pamphlet providing a description of and the philosophy behind the Agricultural and Industrial School at Jackson, Alabama just after the turn of the 20th century. The text was written by the president of the school, Douglas Allen, who enumerates his "three reasons" behind industrial education. Allen also includes sections on "Industrial Training in Elementary Schools," "Opportunity of the District Agricultural Schools," "Student Labor," "Equipment," and closes with sections on the needs of the school for "large equipment," "co-operation," and cash donations. The three photographs reproduced in the text picture an agricultural field, "Students in the woods," and the "Main building Agricultural and Industrial School, Jackson, Ala."
