Executive summary: Studies in the American Race Problem

Planter, scholar and author. For some time he was engaged in cotton planting, at Dunleith, Mississippi, as one of the largest individual cotton growers in the state. Stone spent considerable effort in the nation's capital engaged in research at the Library of Congress, studying the Amendments to the Constitution growing out of the Civil War and in the political and economic problems peculiar to the South, and specifically what was known at the time as the Negro Question. Stone's views are undeniably racist. But he assembled a library of over 3000 items on the subject, The Negro and Cognate Subjects, which has remained intact at the University of Mississippi. His library is interesting as it unexpectedly non-biased, including a large amount of abolitionist material.
