Although I do not recognize the photograph, Frances Perkins Vines has told me she was the first African American MPH graduate from the Department of Nutrition at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. The first African American MPH graduates from the school were Van Sizar Allen and Julian Lewis in the Department of Health Education. They received their MPH degrees in 1962.
