Smoot School Article


Note from Carole: This article appeared in the Petersburg Observer on March 20, 1969. The picture was taken March 12, 1895 at the Smoot School which, as I understand it, was later called the Curtis School. One of the students, Nathan Martin, is my husband's father. Nathan was 14 1/2 at the time the photo was taken.

All of the students are identified and the article says the picture was owned by Kate Park Faith. Nathan's maternal grandmother's maiden name was Faith (Sarah Faith Kinney). We are interested in contacting whoever may have possession of this photograph.
