Doctor Holmes was inaugurated as
sixth President of Morgan College in
November, 1937. He is the first col-
ored man to assume the presidency
of this institution. Doctor Holmes is
well-known to Baltimoreans, since his
father was pastor of local Methodist
Episcopal churches for a number of
years and since he (President Holmes)
taught in the Douglass High School
for a number of years.

He pursued his college work at
Howard University and earned the
Master of Arts and Doctor of Philoso-
phy degrees at Columbia University.
He was formerly Registrar of Howard
University, Dean of the School of Ed-
ucation and later Dean of the Gradu-
ate School of the same institution. He
brings to Morgan College a wealth of
experience and ability. The colored
people of Baltimore wish for Doctor
and Mrs. Holmes an abundance of
success.

DOCTOR DWIGHT O. W. HOLMES

DR. FRANCIS M. WOOD

Francis M. Wood became Director
of Colored Schools of Baltimore Au-
gust 1, 1925, and has held the position
to the present.

Under his leadership, the schools
have made remarkable growth not
only in physical equipment, but in
improvement of instruction in all the
schools. Many modern buildings have
been erected for the colored children
in the last thirteen years. A junior-
senior high school will be operated in
East Baltimore beginning September,
1938. Beginning September, 1938,
Coppin Normal School will add one
additional year, making it a four-year
teachers' training college, thus put-
ting Baltimore on par with other pro-
gressive cities in this country.

Mr. Wood has served in many of
the most responsible positions in the
educational field in this country.
