Booker T. Washington, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

He was born into slavery to a white father and a slave mother on a rural farm in southwestern Virginia. After the slaves were freed there in 1865, he worked in West Virginia in a variety of manual labor jobs for several years before making his way to Hampton Roads seeking an education. He worked his way through the school which is now Hampton University and attended college at Wayland Seminary.

After returning to Hampton as a teacher, upon recommendation of Hampton's president, Sam Armstrong, he was named in 1881 as the first leader of the new normal school which became Tuskegee University in Alabama.

I would like a jpeg version of this photo of BT Washington for a book I'm researching. How can I get a copy? I can't use TIF files.
