A native of Alabama, William Lane Hood entered Massachusetts Agricultural College in 1899, making him, in all probability the second [[a:african_american_students|African American student]] at the College, following only [[b:bridgeforth_george_ruffum|George Ruffum Bridgeforth]] and coincident with his classmate [[p:peebles_william_w|William W. Peebles]].  According to the US Census for 1880, Hood was a resident of Bear Creek, Ala., one of nine "mulatto" children born to Robert Hood, a farmer, and his wife Martha, who "kept house."  Somewhat mysteriously, Hood is listed in MAC sources as being from Birmingham or Vandiver.  A native of Alabama, William Lane Hood entered Massachusetts Agricultural College in 1899, making him, in all probability the second [[a:african_american_students|African American student]] at the College, following only [[b:bridgeforth_george_ruffum|George Ruffum Bridgeforth]] and coincident with his classmate [[p:peebles_william_w|William W.
