It shall be the purpose of this study to examine the basic ideas of industrial education current in America in the last half of the 19th Century and to note the peculiar changes in developments experienced by these ideas when they were introduced into socio-economic condition, faced by the South with its Negro problem. Special attention is given to the Negro because of his primary position as southern laborer in thinking of the white south.
The scope of this study is limited to the period from 1865-1900. The writer has found it necessary to begin at this date, because it falls within the Period of Reconstruction; when the basis of human efforts would become the foundation of "A New South." It served as a stimulus for awakening the newly emancipated as to his duties toward man. This study closes with the period of 1900, because the foundation elements of Negro educational pattern of the south had become perpetuated; it also marked the undisputed end of which the pattern of Negro education was designed.
