Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Edward Flud Burrows was born on August 17, 1917, and raised on a cotton farm in Sumter County, South Carolina. He completed undergraduate studies at Washington and Lee University, earned a master's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a doctoral degree from Duke University. He later received a Rosenwald Scholarship to complete doctoral studies in history at UW-Madison. As a conscientious objector to World War II, Burrows was sent to a Quaker Friends camp in the mountains of North Carolina. Later, while in Florida, he served a prison sentence for refusing to carry a draft card. After his release from prison, he spent a year at the Race Relations Institute at Fisk University. In 1948, while completing research for the Commission on Interracial Cooperation in Atlanta, Georgia, Burrows was hired as a history teacher at Guilford College, in Greensboro, North Carolina. At Guilford, he was active in promoting integration, especially as a member of the Faculty Forum, an interracial organization with membership from local colleges. As a professor, he was one of the first winners of the Excellence in Teaching Award presented by the Guilford College Board of Visitors.show more
