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.
This is my great aunt Frances Vines, the first African American Masters of Public Health graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Public Health, former Howard University professor, and nutritionist.
This is Francis Vines, niece of Elnora and Viola Vines.
