Benedic| College, Columbia, S. C,
June 22, 1921
Dear Friend: ...
PerhapsjVou know that President
Valentine! will not be back at Bene
dict college next year. The Rev
Clarence k Antisdel, whose service
as professor of English makes him
thoroughly familiar with Benedict's
work, wil^ be acting president He
has been a missionary to Africa, and
has shownj his devotion to the colored
people by j a most self-sacrificing life.
We hav$ been glad to see the high
esteem in j which President Valentine!
is held bjj many who came to know
him. He jias some rare qualities and
gave unstinted and most valuable ser
vice to thja school. Professor Antis
del gives jevery indication of having
the ability,' the devotion to the colored
race, the. Christian character and
spirit, and) the power to win friends
which willj make his work successful.
We kno^jr that fiae change of admin
istration tfill not interfere with your
Interest i? the school. Causes are
more important than men. Your loy
alty is notj primarily to the man, but
to the college. You love the college.
It has doi e much, perhaps, to make
you what j you are. For your own
sake, for t$e reputation of your people
and for the welfare of the children
of your rjice you will not fail the
college at j this time, a time when!
larger possibilities open before it than
No radical changes will be made in
the plans C/f the school. The purpose
will be no^ only to develop the phys
ical^ and njental nature, but very es
pecially* tjhe spiritual. Particular
stress will be laid on the development
of the religious life. Great emphasis
will be gifen to religious education,
the teaching of the Bible and the
training f<fr Christian ministry, not
alone to train preachers?although
this will r?ceive more attention, than
ever before?but to train every stu
dent to minister, to serve in the Sun
day school, the churchy the com
munity an4 in the home. Everything,
including recreation, athletic train
ing and extension of the musical de
partment jwill tend to develop the
moral character of Benedict's stu
But present buildings are insuffi
cient and j our endowment provides j
only $7,00^ a year of the $30,0001
to tun the school. Literature i
m sfet %ut; also a letter fron^
President Valentine] asking for $10
from each one of the alumni to meet
an emergency. This sum will be
credited toward the $100,000 cam
.palgn. Thp $10 contributed will be
considered jas the first payment to
ward the $jl9.80 asked for each year
for five yejars. The General Educa
tion Board! gave us $10,000 dollars
with the ejxpectation that we would
raise $5,000j. Fearing that this $5,000
would not ibe in hand on time, and
anxious toj secure it by commence
ment, President Valentine asked each
one to sen? in promptly part of the
$19.50, wit? the hope that the rest
would follow as soon as possible.
We earnestly hope that you will
cooperate most heartily with Acting
President jAntisdel in making this
drive a success. Etery one of you
can give oil get $99 in five years for
the school.; Remember this means,
in all probability, a continued gift of
$10,000 a year from the General Edu
cation Board. One dollar from you!
for salaries; brings $2 from Northern '
friends, or $1 from you means $3 for
the school.; JThe campaign means,
also a new mechanical building and
other imperatively needed improve
Probably there will never 'be a more
favorable time to make your gifts for
Benedict count so much. A dollar
now and for the next few years is
worth twice as much as a dollar at
many other' times.
We ask ybur help to make Benedict
still more the pride and joy of South
Carolina; t\> make it a greater and
a permanent blessing to your chil
dren. We jask you to* share in an
achievement that you and your race
will be prodd of.
Remember these points. This cam
(1) You ;
(2) Form lor join a Benedict club;
(3) Give i>r get
(4) $99 iji five years, or $19.80 in
each year, $1.65 a month, or 5^
cents j a day.
Benedict'*! sons and daughters will
not disappoint their friends!
Your fellow worker for a greater
and a better Benedict,
