  Contents:  
This collection consists of the correspondence, personal papers, speeches, agricultural material, financial and business documents of Benjamin Franklin Hubert during his 1926-1947 tenure as President of Georgia State College (later Savannah State College), an agricultural college for African Americans in Savannah, Georgia. Some additional documentation is included for Hubert's time as Director of Agriculture and Agriculture Extension at the South Carolina State College; no documentation is available for his time at the Tuskegee Institute, however. Photos, clippings, and ephemera related to the Hubert and the Log Cabin Center are included as well. The correspondence in the collection predominately composed of correspondence between Hubert and his various donors, who provided advice and suggestions for the direction and programs at the Log Cabin Center. Notable donors/supporters included are Eleanor Roosevelt, George Foster Peabody, and Caroline Hazard. There is also some detailed correspondence between Hubert and his sharecroppers, the African-American community, and staff at the college. Benjamin Hubert's personal papers consist of some certificates, Hubert's court cases, recommendations for Hubert, and essays/speeches (most of which concern the history of future of the African-American citizen). The agricultural materials mostly relate to Hubert's work regarding the Association for the Advancement of Negro Country Life and their farming goals for African-American citizens. The financial documents encompass insurance policies; bills from personal expenses, running the college, the Log Cabin Center; and expenses from Hubert's sharecroppers.
