School Rosters 1874-1889

School Rosters

Below are the class rosters of Mrs. Minta Hoover. They are for classes taught from 1874 to 1889 in Little Rock, Arkansas. We salvaged these lists from a trash pile when we saw a 1930s phone directory on the top of the box they were in. I am assuming that the Arsenal School was on the grounds of the Arsenal. That area is now known as McArthur Park. The Union School was on 6th Street between Gaines and State. Both of these schools were for black students.

Sherman Street School

The Sherman Street School was on Seventh between Sherman and Ferry. The Scott Street School was located at 14th and Scott. The Forest Grove School was located on the north side of 5th between Rector Ave. and Collins.

Scott Street School

I have transcribed each roster and then provided a scan. THE SCANS TAKE A WHILE TO LOAD and unfortunately some of the rosters are so old and faded that they didn't scan well.
