Dedication Page, 1951

This page was another jaw dropper! Looking out from this page is probably one of the biggest names in Ouachita Parish educational history. Professor M.J. Foster. WOW! Mrs. H.W. Johnson is Mrs. Henrietta Windham Johnson, whom a community center on Berg Jones Lane is named for. She taught for fifty years. That means she was on the faculty of Wisner School, which was the first African-American school in Ouachita Parish. [edit August 9, 2022: She was actually an Assistant Principal of Monroe Academy/North Louisiana Industrial High School under Professor Foster and became Principal after he left the school in 1920!]

Sorry for all the debris on the image. The book was flaking off and pieces were being left behind on the scanner.
