FALVEY MEMORIAL LIBRARY



Below are biographies of the first graduates from the Institute for Colored Youth. For some, photographs or sketches have survived; but for most, their likenesses have been lost to history. Despite their many achievements and contributions as students, teachers, and leaders, we are unable to attach a face to their name.
