The first president of the Society, elected in January, 1817, was Jus- tice Bushrod Washington of the Supreme Court, a nephew of George Washington. Crawford of Georgia, and several other eminent statesmen were elected as vice- presidents. Although these men have not figured in histories of the anti- slavery movement, they appear to have given the first scientific attention to African slavery as a racial problem, before the Jan.

Fox states that Smeathman went later to the West Indies, and Smeathman says: "My stay in the West Indies was with a view to inform myself of tropical cultiva- tion, previous to my return to Africa."
