Faces of history

1930 YMCA

1930 YMCA

Reginald Brown, a local historian, supplied these three noteworthy photographs to the Post. He identified one of the pictures as an 1891 grammar school class located on the campus of Livingstone College.

Names of the students, most of whom seem to be adults, are not known.

The other photos show members of the 1930 YMCA and YWCA at the college.

In the YWCA, the women include Catherine Farrington on the bottom step; second row: Lillian Cherry, secretary, and Emma Clement, publicity chairperson; third row: Eurie Andrews, vice president, and Tedia Mae Galloway, treasurer; fourth row: Gertrude Lomax, president, Wallace Smith, reporter, Augusta Mae Reid, assistant secretary, and Geneva Lisby, advisor.

In the YMCA photograph, the bottom row includes Vice President John Jones, President Robert Douglas and Treasurer William Carrington. Only last names are given for most of the other young men. On the second row are Clement, Harrison and Carver; third row: Greenwood and Assistant Secretary William Berry; fourth row: Roberts, Darden, Johnson, Secretary Simon DeVane and Godwin; fifth row: Mocur and Dodds; sixth row: Gaines, Jackson, Hardy and Pead.
