The copy on the dust jacket of a biography of Samuel Chapman Armstrong claims that "General Armstrong, as the founder of Hampton Institute (which trained Booker T. Washington and started the whole modern movement for manual training), did more to bring about the transformation of the Negro and the Indian into useful American citizens thany any other one man." The biography, Samuel Chapman Armstrong: A Biographical Study (1904), was written by Armstrong's daughter Edith Armstrong Talbot.
