Thomas W. Higginson was a man of astonishingly varied talents and
accomplishments. A lifelong radical, he was an outspoken abolitionist, advocate
of women’s rights, and founder of the Intercollegiate Socialist Society. During
the Civil War, he served as commander of the first Union regiment of freed
African American soldiers. An ordained Unitarian minister, Higginson was also a
prolific writer; his most highly regarded work was a memoir of his war years,
Army Life in a Black Regiment. He said: "Do not waste a minute–not
a second–in trying to demonstrate to others the merits of your performance. If
your work does not vindicate itself, you cannot vindicate it." I
would add, think always in terms of excellence in how you conduct yourself.
Contribute to others however and whenever you can and strive for integrity in
all you do.
