He was the first principal of the Maryland Normal and Industrial School at Bowie for the Training of Colored Youth, also known as Maryland State Normal School No. 3—which later became Bowie State University.

Founded in 1952, this all-volunteer, non-profit organization works to fulfill its mission of preserving and promoting the County’s long and diverse history through:

  • Reproducing new and out-of-print historical materials.
  • Collecting records, documents, photographs, and artifacts reflecting the County’s social, economic and political history.
  • Operating the Frederick S. DeMarr Library of County History.
  • Providing educational opportunities through lectures, programs and tours.
  • Recognizing and supporting individuals and organizations that are making significant contributions to the preservation of the County’s rich multi-ethnic, multi-cultural heritage.

The Society is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, which is elected at our annual meeting in November of each year.
