Cooper College and other Moundville Groups

The photos on this page are from the Ward family collection. Thanks to Dennis Ward for sharing them.

This group photo must have been made around 1894 or so.

This Cooper College group is probably of undergraduates before 1898. Since Bea Jones had graduated in 1894, she may have been the teacher of this group.

This is the best view I have ever seen of the big hall at Cooper College. See below ifor a close-up for identification of graduates.

These are the Scientific program graduates for 1900.

This nice photo is probably Moundville, but I'm not sure. It appears to be a photographer's best effort to add a leafy border to a photo. If you recognice anyone, let us know.
