University Press of Mississippi

This chapter focuses on Harold Edward James and his correspondence. Harold, born on February 3, 1884, had a loving, generous nature and a lively sense of humor. He enrolled at Hampton Institute at the age of fifteen and found his calling working at the school’s eight-hundred-acre farm at Shellbanks, where students earned money to pay their tuition and produced food that the school sold to supplement its income. After leaving Hampton, Harold bought and operated a farm in Wethersfield, Connecticut, and later became the manager of a school in Hanover, Virginia.
