Howe Building, Howe Bible & Normal Institute, Memphis TN - Circa 1910

The Memphis Baptist and Normal Institute was a historically Black college founded in 1888 by Peter Howe of Illinois. It was one of the earliest private educational facilities for African Americans in Memphis. The date it changed name to Howe Institute is unknown, but it was before 1910.

In 1902 Thomas O. Fuller, a prominent author, church and civil leader, and person for whom T. O. Fuller State Park was named, was named principal. The campus consisted of the original Howe Building, then an Industrial Shop, which gave space for the printing and sewing departments, and then a Teacher's College building, along with the Clara Howe Dormitory for girls. The Institute also did settlement work. In 1908 there were 12 faculty besides Reverend Fuller, and its departments were: Literary, Industrial (sewing, printing, basketry), Ministerial, Missionary Training, and Stenography and Typewriting.

The Howe Institute had no endowment and relied on support from tuitions and donations. In the Great Depression, declining support forced its closure. Howe sold its buildings and merged with LeMoyne College in 1937.

back when you did not have to wear shoes

my grandfather would have my brother and me climb to the top of trees
and riding them down to the ground

when we had a cut, we would rub dirt into the wound
we would drink water from the spring
we would run around inside the cotton trailer packing the cotton down
we would crawl through the pine needles in the pine forest

never had any allergies

Used to play there in the 1950's then go to the Neighborhood House across the street. Very safe downtown back then.
