In my last post A Name Remembered-Georgia Anne Peters-52 Ancestors #1, I mentioned that I would contact one of the schools that she either attended or taught at. So I decided to contact West Virginia State University which was established in 1891 as the West Virginia Colored Institute, under the second Morrill Act, that provided land grants institutions for black students.
I contacted the Historically black university that is now diversified and spoke to Janice Young who works in the archives of the university. She was most helpful with my request. She took my information and let me know she would email me if she came across anything that would identify my Great Aunt Georgia Peters. About a week later, I received the photo to the left.
The photo is of the P.O.N Club at the University. It was taken from the 1924 school Annual. Ms. Young stated that she did not know which one was Georgia. I am not sure which one. It could be a few of them. I am still hoping that I will get more answers as to which one is her. I will continue to pursue a photo as there are other places that she attended and taught.
Here is a closer up photo.
Here are a few photos that I used to attempt to identify Georgia in the photo above. One is of my mother Betty Mae Peters and the other is of Charles I Peters, Georgia’s brother [My grandfather]. Which one do you think is Georgia?
