Minutes of the Greensboro Board of Education spanning 1906-1911. This volume includes a wealth of details concerning the operation of the schools: the number of white and ""colored students"" and teachers, the salaries and overall budgets, the condition of buildings and classrooms, and planning of new structures, books and supplies, developments in the curricula, the goals and philosophy of the educators and Board members. The major ""annual"" reports of the Superintendents are of particular interest. The final one presented by W. H. Swift, in 1910, (pp. 155-157) is especially enlightening, as he reflects on his nine year administration and lays out his recommendations for future directions, in particular the need for more ""industrial training"" for the ""colored"" students. Included is a letter of Aug. 30, 1909 (p. 108) from Walter Clinton Jackson, when he resigned from Board to become head of the History Dept. at State Normal and Industrial College (later Woman's College, and UNCG).
