Black History Month: Henry Edwin Baker, Jr.


Henry Edwin Baker, Jr. (September 1, 1857 – April 27, 1928) was the third African American to enter the United States Naval Academy. He later served as an assistant patent examiner in the United States Patent Office, where he would chronicle the history of African-American inventors.

Baker was born on September 1, 1857, in Columbia, Mississippi, and attended the Columbus Union Academy there. After attending the Naval Academy for two years he completed his education at the Ben-Hyde Benton School of Technology in Washington, D.C., graduating in 1879. He graduated from Howard University School of Law in 1881 at the top of his class, and completed post-graduate work there in 1883.

Baker was nominated by Congressman Henry W. Barry while he was living in Columbia, and was sworn in as a cadet midshipman on September 25, 1874.

Like his predecessors James H. Conyers and Alonzo C. McClennan – the first and second African Americans to attend the Naval Academy, respectively – Baker also faced racist attitudes and harassment. Baker was a social outcast; his only social interaction with another midshipman – “except on occasions when he was defending himself against their assaults” – while he was at the academy occurred when a midshipman from Pennsylvania came to Baker’s room at midnight and offered Baker a slice of birthday cake. In order to allay Baker’s suspicions the midshipman produced a letter from his mother “in which she requested that a slice be given to the colored cadet who was without friends”.

A fellow plebe from North Carolina, James Henry Glennon, put Baker on report for calling Glennon a “son of a bitch” on October 26, 1874. The Superintendent of the Naval Academy, C.R.P. Rodgers, convened a board of inquiry under Commander William T. Sampson to investigate the incident. Glennon had not heard Baker, but other plebes testified that they had heard it and admitted that they referred to Baker as the “nigger” within his hearing.  The board found that Baker had said it, but that he was “incited so to act by the bearing of the other cadets”.

Another board was convened to investigate a report of disobedience during a seamanship drill, when Baker stood still after receiving conflicting orders, but it found no misconduct.

In January 1875, Baker ran into academic trouble when he failed his semiannual exams in math and French and the Academic Board recommended dismissal. While awaiting a final ruling Baker was involved in another altercation on February 7, 1875. While marching back to quarters after supper Baker was struck from behind by a snowball. Baker shouted, warning those behind him to “take care at whom you throw snow balls”.  John Hood, a plebe from Florence, Alabama, asked Baker whom he was addressing, and when Baker replied, “You”, Hood struck him in the face. Another midshipman, Lawson Melton of South Carolina (who received his appointment from Robert B. Elliott, an African-American congressman) joined in the attack, but Baker managed to escape and report the incident. The following morning Hood and Melton, armed with clubs, waylaid Baker and beat him about the head before he could break free and make his escape; he also reported this incident to the officer in charge.  In lieu of an investigation, Hood and Melton wrote letters of explanation in which they unrepentantly justified their assault on Baker, with Melton writing:

I have been taught never to receive an insult, and now when it was offered by a Negro, I could not help striking him. I also admit, that it was ungentlemanly, thus to strike a Negro, and I deeply regret having lowered myself thus. I think Sir, that I would repeat it, on the slightest provocation.”
