Ox That Gored: A Reprint of Transaction of the American Philosophical Society, vol. 71, no. 2: Transactions, American Philosophical Society (vol. 71, part 2)
Dennis K. McDaniel (au)
Who was John Ogden (1824-1910), the first Superintendent -- later Principal & President -- of Fisk School, today’s Fisk Univ.? Was he Dr. Ogden? A Methodist minister? An educator from Pennsylvania? An ex-Army Captain? A veteran of the Civil War from the second Wisconsin Cavalry regiment? A moral threat to female students? A despiser of blacks? A man not interested in church building? No; all these terms of address & descriptions are incorrect -- but they provide hints about where & how Ogden did spend his life, what interested him, & how he was the subject of inaccurate, scurrilous gossip, & the subject of inaccurate, respectful addresses. This volume presents a study of Ogden, in his role as one of the early participants in Southern Negro educ.
