This manuscript grew of a study being prepared on the historical development of Prairie View A and M College by Dr. Georage R. Woolfork. W.R. Banks, the seventh principle of Prairie View A and M. College, served in that position longer than any of his predecessors.
If it is true that an institution is nothing more than the long shadow of a great dream in the heart of a man, then for twenty yours, 1926 through 1946, a dream camo alive on Prairie View's campus. Banks had learned from his work and leadership at Fort Valley Institute in Alabama, kowaliga Community school in Alabama and texas College at Taylor, Texas, that the great virtues of sound living could alone make a people ready for service. Without his dreams, his failures, and successes, Prairie View College would have fallen far short of the noble hoists which it reached during his administration.
