School Building Slides, 1952-1972 Series 1896
The series contains slides, mostly color, of public school buildings and facilities located in Mississippi and a few other states. Most are dated and identified, and some are grouped by topic for use in slide presentations. In addition to the slides there are a small number of color photographic transparencies of school buildings, facilities and workers. The slides and transparencies were digitized by MDAH in the order as received from the Mississippi Department of Education, with items 1-775 being pre-integration African American school buildings and facilities arranged alphabetically by county, 776-1400 being pre-integration white school buildings and facilities arranged alphabetically by county, 1401-1648 being slide presentations, and 1649-1688 being transparencies.
