An unrecorded handbook issued to the student body of the Tuskegee Institute in Jim Crow Alabama. The handbook opens with a greeting by the college President F.D. Patterson, and includes sections on standards and regulations on student conduct, rules governing student activities and organizations, standards for sororities and fraternities, and a section of general information such as an historical sketch of the school, significant events in its history, the school's location, organization, and "Unique Things at Tuskegee Institute." The first section includes standards for both men and women, with separate chapters for "Graduate Women," "Married Women," and "Women Students Not Enrolled in Four-Year Degree Programs." An insightful look into the organization and operation of one of the most prominent HBCUs in the United States just after World War II but before the larger momentum of the Civil Rights Movement. We could locate no other copies of this student handbook in OCLC or elsewhere.
