Booker T. Washington (1908)

African-American activist and Tuskegee Institute founder Booker T. Washington as an older man. This particular print of the photograph was in the archives of the U.S. Copyright Office before being transferred to the Library of Congress; it has been ripped along its right edge from its original binding, probably at the time that it was submitted for copyright.
