In 1939, the same year that he assumed the presidency of Fort Valley State College in Georgia, Horace Mann Bond published an article in the Journal of Negro Education that thoughtfully ruminated on the pivotal career move he then faced. Four years earlier, in 1935, Bond had reluctantly left his associate professorship at Fisk University in Nashville to become academic dean at the newly created Dillard University in New Orleans, but he returned to Fisk in 1938. His equally hesitant move to Fort Valley, though, was less experimental, had less of a safety net, and was a potentially more final break with the world of academic scholarship and research. In the article, Bond spoke of the tremendous tensions "facing the Negro who would be a scholar," highlighting, in his opinion, not just the lure of higher salaries in the growing number of administrative positions being created in the black colleges of the period, but also "a culture giving neither prestige nor financial rewards to scholars"...
