2.16 This date in 1852 marks the birth of William Sander Scarborough. He was an African American scholar and University President.
He was emancipated during the Civil War, entered Atlanta University in 1869, and then went on to Oberlin College for his Masters degree. He taught Latin and Greek at Wilberforce University. In 1908 he became President a position he held for twelve years. In 1921 American President Harding appointed him to a post in the Department of Agriculture, which he held until Harding's death in 1924.
AfricanAmerican History is American History.

Windy & sunny & 44º today. Out for a long walk and then to chiropractor's. Wonder what's in the blue trailer on the church lot.
