[Muskogee?]: Cimeter Job Printing Company, n.d. [1907]. [2], 7, [3]p. Softcover booklet in original wrapper. 14cm. Later vertical crease. Also included is a 1907 postcard to Annie Stigger at the Creek Orphan's Home from Mrs. Booker T. Washington thanking Stigger for a donation to "the piano Fund." The 1907 session was the 8th annual Normal for prospective "colored" teachers of the Creek Nation. It was a 4-week session with a tuition of $4 -- room and board had to be arranged separately at $2-4 a week. Teachers were being sought for 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade. Listed standards were highest to qualify to teach for 1st Grade and lowest for 3rd grade. No textbooks were supplied; attendees were urged to bring whichever textbooks they wanted to have on hand. A pencil note on first blank page identifies the former owner as Miss Anita J. Stigger, a teacher at Old Indian Agency School. Stigger later married Samuel D. Hooker, a local businessman. Their daughter Olivia, the first African American woman permitted to join the U.S. Coast Guard, later became a professor at Fordham University. Very Good. Item #88202
