The University has held the Jackson Davis Collection of African-American educational photos since 1948, but has recently undertaken digitizing them and making them available on the Web at this site. Davis was a Virginia-born educator who served as a field agent for the General Education Board in New York, and often traveled the South between 1910 and 1940, camera in hand, photographing many of the African-American schools he visited. In many cases, his pictures are the only surviving records.
