Insurance Photos 1935-1950

Public schools in South Carolina were in poor condition and received few public dollars in the early 20th century. Hoping to remidy this expanding problem, the General Assembly worked to consolidate schools which lead to a substancial increase in school construction. Wanting to protect it's investment, the state began to inspect and insure all school buildings via the Sinking Fund Commission in 1919. (Click here to learn more about the Sinking Fund Commission and background of this collection.) This collection of photos catalogs approximately 2,600 public schools, African-American and white.
