General Note

  • Accompanying note: "Three wood frame buildings at right angles to each other to form 3/4's of a square. Steps into rooms unpainted, half rotten. Windows and sills rotting, in need of paint. Ditto interior. Lighting - one bulb in ceiling for each room. No library, no plumbing (four backhouses, one for the faculty, out of unpainted boards, 75 yards from buildings). Other than a rickety piano there was no visible equipment beside necessary desks and chairs and a few tables to hold miserable displays of drawings, etc. Drinking water consisted of two white enamel pails and dippers for each room, washing facilities two basins. Appetizing lunch room, teachers serving. Federal funds allow for a good meal at 20 cents, approximately 15% free to the needy. Principal's office about four feet by ten, cluttered with packing cases."
