Jazz on the Road
Christopher Wilkinson uncovers a fascinating and unexplored side of American musical and social history in this richly detailed account of Don Albert's musical career and the multicultural forces that influenced it. Albert was born Albert Dominque in New Orleans in 1908. Wilkinson discusses his musical education in the Creole community of New Orleans and the fusion of New Orleans jazz and the Texas blues styles in the later 1920s during his tenure with Troy Floyd's Orchestra of Gold. He documents the founding of Albert's own band in San Antonio, its tours through twenty-four states during the 1930s, its recordings, and its significant reputation within the African American community. In addition to providing a vivid account of life on the road and imparting new insight into the daily existence of working musicians, this book illustrates how the fundamental issue of race influenced Albert's life, as well as the music of the era.

Women Leaders in Kenya: A Legacy for the Future
In 1997, Ralph Upson Stone ’80 had completed research on his doctoral dissertation, “Women Leaders in Kenya,” when he was brutally murdered by a still unknown assailant in his home in Washington, DC, at the age of 38. Determined that his years of labor would not be lost, his mother, Anne Upson Stone, put the finishing touches on Ralph’s research and concluded the writing of his dissertation. In 1998, at age 68, she successfully defended it before his professors at George Washington University. That summer, Ralph’s Ed.D. degree was posthumously awarded, with his mother and father, Frederick L. Stone, Jr. ’51, on hand to receive it. In June, 2001, the Centre for Development and Population Activities, of which Ralph was the highly respected and admired director of training, published the fruits of his and his mother’s labors as a book: Women Leaders in Kenya: A Legacy for the Future. Proceeds from its sale will go to the Ralph U. Stone Memorial Fund, which provides scholarships for leaders around the world to attend seminars at CEDPA, a nonprofit international development organization headquartered in Washington and aimed at empowering women at all levels of society.
