  • Biographical / Historical Note
     

    The first public high school in Greenville, North Carolina was established in 1903 on Evans Street, on the present site of Sheppard Memorial Library. In 1915, a new high school building was built on what is now an East Carolina University parking lot, located at the intersection of Fifth and Reade Streets. E. S. Peele served as the first principal of the school in this building. On Wednesday, April 12, 1927, fire engulfed and destroyed the original building. A new building was constructed soon thereafter, soon to be followed by the addition of an auditorium-gymnasium.

    In 1955 ground was broken for a new high school on South Elm Street. On November 14, 1957, the building was opened and dedicated as Rose High School. Historically, African-Americans attended C. M. Eppes High School near the current intersection of West Fifth Street and Memorial Drive. Eppes officially began as a high school in 1942. When the majority of the Eppes campus burned on January 28, 1970, integration at the high school level was accelerated with all students attending Rose High School. In 1992 Rose High School opened a new building on Arlington Boulevard, which is its current location.

    The donor of this collection attended Greenville High School, graduating in 1951. She was a member of the school's Mixed Chorus.
