Personal Library of Dr. Simon G. Atkins

"A little library, growing larger every year, is an honorable part of a man's history. It is a man's duty to have books. A library is not a luxury, but one of the necessaries of life,” wrote abolitionist Henry Ward Beecher. Dr. Simon Green Atkins, educator, religious leader, community developer and founder of Slater Industrial Academy, now Winston-Salem State University, understood Beecher’s philosophy. Dr. Atkins managed to amass nearly 500 books over his 71 year lifespan.

The Simon Green Atkins Book Collection contains poetry by Virgil, edition of Carter G. Woodson’s The Journal of Negro History, and guides to understanding government and laws.

A complete bibliography of the personal library of the Atkins Family will be made available in the coming weeks.
