Excerpt from Report to the Board of Directors: The Colored Orphanage of North Carolina; March 1, 1941 to July 1, 1942
In this fifty-ninth report of the Colored Orphanage of North Carolina located in Oxford, North Carolina, I here by submit a report Of the sixteen months from March 1, 1941, to July 1, 1942. I appreciate the confidence you have bestowed upon me in electing me superintendent of the Institution for the past sixteen months.
The program of the Institution is to develop the boys and girls mentally, physically, spiritually. It is my belief that to give these boys and girls food, shelter and cloth ing is not the whole program, but every effort Should be made to train them through the heart, the head and the hand with the best type of moral training that can be had, so they will be able to make a decent living and to be an asset to the state when they leave the Institution.
I am grateful to all the people of North Carolina for the interest they have Shown, particularly the members of the Board of Directors and the many friends and citi zens of Granville County.
