The Kindness and Attention


Author(s):
Abstract:
The alumni association of the Warren County Training School seeks to raise $3 million to preserve and restore the buildings and legacy of their alma mater. Funds from Julius Rosenwald, a Chicago philanthropist, help build what became the school in 1921. When it was destroyed by a tornado in 1931, Rosenwald funds helped build the brick building that remains today. Gery recounts the history of the school and the progress of the alumni in the restoration project.
