Foreword



IN the fall of 1911 the John F. Slater Fund, through its Presi-
dent, Dr. James Hardy Dillard, offered to four counties in
the South aid for one school in each county with a view to the
ultimate development in each of those counties of at least one
secondary school for Negroes supported by public funds. At
that time, according to the best available information, there
were in all of the South, both rural and urban, not as many as
fifty public schools for Negroes offering any secondary work.
The four counties where these first Slater-aided schools were
located were Hempstead County, Arkansas, Newton County,
Mississippi, and Sabine and Tangipahoa Parishes, Louisiana.

During the next twenty-two years the Slater Fund expended
for the purpose of stimulating the development of other such
schools no less than $1,216,475, which was used to aid as many
as 612 schools, located in almost as many counties.

At the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of the John
F. Slater Fund in April, 1933, it was voted to have a study
made to ascertain just what development had taken place in the
field of secondary education for Negroes since 1911. Mr. Ed-
ward E. Redcay was engaged to make this study and within a
short time his findings will be available in printed form.

In the meantime, in order to make available the complete
data on which his study is based, it seemed wise to publish the
raw data that had been collected for this purpose. This ( )cca-
sional Paper is the outcome of that decision.

Each county, city, town or other superintendent of schools, in
those states where separate school systems for whites and Ne-
groes are maintained throughout the state, was asked to furnish
simple information as to the name, location, enrollment, and
teaching staff of each school within his jurisdiction offering any
secondary work whatever for Negroes. All of the schools thus
reported are listed in this pamphlet. Proof sheets for the sev-
eral states were submitted to the State Agent for Negro Schools
or some other state official in each state concerned and as a
result it is safe to say that this list is complete and accurate in
so far as such completeness and accuracy are possible.

No effort whatever has been made to analyze or otherwise
interpret these data in this Paper. The one and only aim is to
present the complete data on which the larger study is based. It
is felt that this information will be an important point of depar-
ture for future students of problems in this held and that it will
show, at a glance, the status of secondary education for Negroes
in eacdi of the counties of the several states, The data presented
herein were collected in September and ( October, 1933. Enroll-
ment figures were requested for the end of the school year 1 ( >32-
1933, but in some cases the information supplied is for the begin-
ning of the school year 1933-1934. It is not felt that this will
materially lessen the value of the data presented.
