Guilford College, a Quaker-supported four-year liberal arts school in Greensboro, N.C., was chartered in 1834 and opened in 1837 as New Garden Boarding School.
Images in the 1956 Guilford College yearbook, The Quaker, highlight both the continued presence of international students and in a rare candid photograph, the presence of an African-American staff on campus. Students include Asian American Wako Yokoyama, Yoon Tuk Kim, Thi Thanh Mai Vu. On the page devoted to the Monogram Club, an independent student organization, a social function called the KKK (Klub Kampus Kuties)is described. A rare page devoted to service staff depicts numerous Asian American waiters and African American cook, King David, thus reflecting the reality of racially diverse staff as a part of the campus community.
