New-York Historical Society
The fourth volume of the records of the New-York African Free School contains penmanship and drawing studies by the students from 1816 to 1826. Of particular interest are copies of the speech given by prominent African American physician James McCune Smith on the occasion of the Marquis de La Fayette's visit to New York in 1824. While there is little, if any, information on individuals in the first two volumes, attributions are often given for the material appearing in volumes three and four.
