The history of the Booker T. Washington High School, Alto, Texas is written because the author feels that there is a need for records of the development of such institutions. Especially is this true of institutions which have rendered valuable service to a community over a long period of time. The purpose of this study is to show how the school has progressed from its beginning in early past slavery days, and to trace its development to the present time. Included in the study is a list of all the persons who have served as teachers in the school since its beginning up to and including those teaching in the school at the present. These teachers are listed in chronological order. Note is also made as to the preparation of teachers at the time of their employment in the school. No attempt is made to distort facts in order that this thesis might reflect undue credit to the school, nor to the people of the community which it serves, but the facts are stated as found by the author. The study also includes all extra curricular activities that have been or that are now included in the school program, as well as an account of the fame of clubs that served as a part of the curriculum.
