Iowa: [circa 1940s - 1950s].
Softcover. A collection of 21 loose sepia-toned or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring between 3.5" x 5" and 8" x 10", with some captions. Slight curling and fading else very good. An archive of photographs from an African-American Catholic school in Iowa mostly in the 1940s with some later photographs captioned in the 1950s. Most of the images are group shots featuring students and teachers presumably used for a yearbook with the photographer's notes mostly written on the verso. The photos show well-dressed students posed for their class photos as well as faculty members in group shots and with their students. One photo shows a group of young boys with a few of them dressed in altar boy garments. A nice assemblage of images detailing the Catholic education of African-Americans in the 1940s and 1950s.
