Storer College

My mother, Mary Newsome (pictured above) entered Storer College, September, 1943, and graduated with a teaching degree in Home Economics in 1947.  Since she entered during WWII enrollment was low.  I discovered several snapshots of my Mom and her classmates on campus.  Most of them were taken during the winter.  The photographs are extremely small, approximately 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches in size.  The actual size of the image is approximately 1 1/4 x 1 3/4.  As a consequence most of the images are not very sharp.  Fortunately, however, my mother labeled most of the photos with her classmates’ names.  Click on the individual pictures for the names.
