Born the son of a former slave in 1872, Isaac Scott Hathaway became an amazing and influential artist. He is best known for sculpting busts and masks of prominent African American individuals including Frederick Douglas, Booker T. Washington, and George Washington Carver. Hathaway also designed the first two U.S. coins to feature African Americans.

The Community and Civic Engagement Initiative in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University, in collaboration with the Tuskegee Human and Civil Rights Multicultural Center, dedicates this site to the life and work of Isaac Scott Hathaway. Here you will find a brief biography of Hathaway, a podcast recreating a 1939 Federal Writers’ Project interview, photos, a downloadable pamphlet, and much more.
