BOOKER T. WASHINGTON Booker T. Washington Builder of a Civilization By Emmett J. Scott and Lyman Beecher Stowe - FOREWORD IN THE passing of a character so unique as Dr. Booker T. Washington, many of us, his friends, were anxious that his biography should be written by those best qualified to do so. It is therefore a source of gratification to us of his own race to have an account of Dr. Washington s career set forth in a form at once accurate and readable, such as will inspire unborn generations of Negroes and others to love and appreciate all mankind ofwhatever race or color. It is especially

INTRODUCTION: IT is a generation since a dictionary of explosives has been published, and, in the meantime, many new explosives have been introduced. It is hoped, therefore, thatthis small volume, giving concise information about these special materials, may prove useful to those who have to deal with them. In Cundill and Thomsons Dictionary of Explosives, issued in 1895, there are many entries of the names of inventors and of mixtures which had been proposed but have never been used commercially, nor are likely to be. As modern explosives were then in their infancy, it was no doubt wise to in

Valdés, Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Toronto How did the nationalisms of Latin America’s many countries—elaborated in everything from history and fiction to cookery—arise from their common backgrounds in the Spanish and Portuguese empires and their similar populations of mixed European, native, and African origins?
