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
			
                Claflin College
  Claflin College, at Orangeburg, South Caro-
lina, is the largest industrial and educational
center among the schools of the Freedmen's
Aid Society. It is located in the midst of one
of the blackest of the black belts of the South,
having a colored constituency which takes in
the whole State of South Carolina and much
outside.  The South Carolina is the largest
of our colored Conferences, and its success is
almost wholly attributed to the work of the
graduates of Claflin.    A  list of its district
superintendents and the occupants of its prin-
cipal charges, with the leading colored law-
yers,physicians,and business men of that whole
section, would almost be a list of the graduates
and former students of this school. Its grounds
contain sixty acres.  Here the principal in-
dustrial shops of the Freedmen's Aid Society
are located. In its twenty-six buildings, Claf-
lin teaches not only literary subjects, but
practically all trades and industries, including
agricultural. The graduates of its industrial
and technical departments occupy high posi-

building trades and industries everywhere
throughout the South. The property is worth
$250,000, with an equipment valued at $15,000.
Its student body numbers 613, with 19 teachers.

the capital city of Texas, about five blocks
