W. L. Gilbert Letters, 1904-1932

 File — Box: 4267.002, Folder: 7

Scope and Contents

This file contains letters addressed to Professor W. L. Gilbert in Jonesboro, Georgia, regarding a "Directory of Georgia Teachers" that he circulated, or containing references to lists of teachers active in a number of states in the US South, including Florida, South Carolina, Kentucky, and Alabama. In one letter of March 12, 1912, the writer asks to know about available "white male" teachers and says he "Could not use colored at all." Another letter protests details of a listing in the Georgia directory, saying it gave incorrect information about the writer's credentials.
