The recipient of this book, Dr. H. Naylor Fitzhugh (1909-1992) was one of the first African-American graduates from Harvard Business School. After graduation, he returned to his native Washington DC to teach business and marketing at Howard University. In 1965, he accepted a position with Pepsi-Cola Company to “target market” to the African-American community, a concept which he developed. In 1974 he was selected as the “Dean of Black Business” by Black Enterprise magazine and later received a Distinguished Service Award from Harvard University in 1987. Fitzhugh died in 1992 in New York.
