Sorry my first comment flew off ...

Very interesting article ! It brought to mind that Middlebury has a 'first'. "Alexander Twilight who graduated in 1823 was the first African American to earn a baccalaureate degree at an American college".
Couldn't one of Midd's students write Steve McQueen and ask why H.B. Northup was omitted ...
