Twelve Wise Men and What They Did for a Race: Schools of the Freedmen's Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church Brought Down to Date
			
opposite the Tulane Medical College, which is
the leading white medical school of the South.
Through the liberality of the late Mr. John D.
Flint, of Fall River, Massachusetts, and his
widow, Mrs. Flint, and her daughter, Mrs. Ella
Stafford, this institution has been carrying on
the blessed ministry of healing in New Or-
leans and vicinity for many years.  At the
present time a new hospital of fifty beds is
completed, at a cost of over $20,000. The total
value of this property is $65,000.  Nearly a
million of colored people in New Orleans and
vicinity a e dependent upon this hospital for
the care of such of their sick as cannot be
treated in their own homes.  Its class of nur-
ses last year numbered twenty.

              Clark University
  Clark University, Atlanta, Georgia, is, under
the new arrangement of the schools of the
Freedmen's Aid Society, to be its only univer-
sity. It is located at Atlanta, side by side with
Gammon Theological Seminary, on a beautiful
campus of 370 acres of what was at one time
a pine forest. It has twelve buildings, valued
at $110,000, with an additional value of $5,200
in its equipment. Of the 370 acres of land, it
is the hope of the Society that in time three
hundred of these may become available for
building purposes, and that from the proceeds
the beginnings of an endowment may be se-
cured.   The attendance  last year  was  252,
with 14 teachers.
