I just found the notice on your lecture. I am sorry I missed it. I am looking into the Rosenwald schools on the Eastern Shore and am particularly interested in the school artifacts, any curricular materials, books, tests, papers, report cards. I wonder if you lecture included such items for the Prince Georges schools. I’d also be interested in anything that demonstrated a connection between the counties in their approach to education. I want to get a sense of what education was like in these schools before Brown. I will also be trying to find information about non-Rosenwald schools, especially those that were independent of corporate support and any fundraising activities that were used to support the development of the schools.
I don’t know if you would be able to help, but your lecture title seemed like it might have touched on some of these areas of interest. Thanks, in advance, for any help you can give me. Have a great day!
