The purpose of this study is: First, to give a brief historical sketch of the early educational efforts of the General Baptists; second, to explain the influence of social and educational institutions on the cause of Negro education; and third, to show the educational wants of the constituents and suggestions for the improvement of the educational program.
In carrying out the objective set forth above, an attempt is made to furnish an interpretation of the life and work of two of these institutions, with major emphasis on Mary Allen College, and the aims of their present supporters, for those who are now and those who will be its students in the future, and for those who are interested in the higher education of the Negro race in America.
This study is concerned with the General Baptists of Texas. Questionnaires were submitted to 1024 members who were sufficiently diffused over the state to allow for representative measurement of the sentiment of the General Baptists of Texas. The members might be classified into three divisions. The first division includes three hundred and ninety-six ministers, the second division includes four hundred and thirty-two women, and the third division includes one hundred and ninety-six laymen. This study deals only with the educational wants and suggestions for the improvement of the educational program.
