Booker T. Washington's diverse role in the Tuskegee Institute and as the driving force behind its very existence is highlighted in this chapter. He established a facility and helped provide the first land on which the school would be built. He instituted the first study-work routine at the Tuskegee Institute by leading his students to clear lands to plant crops after classes for the subsistence of all. Olivia Davidson was the first female principal of the Tuskegee Institute who later on became his wife and traveled around the country to campaign for much-needed philanthropic funds. Like the NNLB and the Negro Farmers' Conference there was inconsistency between his entrepreneurial philosophy and his practices at the Tuskegee Institute. Washington's fund-raising and revenue-generating activities are discussed.
