In 1833 Beriah Green "accepted the presidency of the Oneida Institute at Whitesboro, N.Y. Here he attempted to maintain a school of high character where manual labor should be combined with mental labor...and where students of every color and nationality should mingle as equals. This position he held until 1843, shortly before inadequacy of support forced the Institute to close" [DAB]. Alvan Stewart, the Utica anti-slavery lawyer, was one of the Trustees listed here.
This catalogue is of particular interest for its listing of Alexander Crummell, the famed African-American minister, African nationalist, and abolitionist, among the thirteen members of the junior class. The course of study and expenses are described.
