This project, currently under development, will start with digitized maps from the book State of Tennessee: County Educational Maps, 1935-1936 (Tennessee State Dept. of Education, 1937). The book has three maps for each of 59 Tennessee counties: pupil distribution, bus routes, and road conditions. Each map has a symbol for African American and white schools.
These county maps were prepared by the United States Office of Education in collaboration with the Tennessee Department of Education in support of A Study of Local School Units in Tennessee (Nashville: Cullom & Ghertner Co., 1937).
