Check out the October issue of Forsyth Woman Magazine and find the Winston-Salem Time Traveler article on page 96. “What’s in a Name? Our Schools” is the name of this month’s article and features information on the sources of many of the names of our schools. And, if any of the schools are named for local individuals, they may be profiled on the Winston-Salem Time Traveler website. For example, to learn more about Calvin Wiley, for whom Wiley School was named, see http://winstonsalemtimetraveler.com/2014/02/03/february-3-happy-birthday-calvin-henderson-wiley/.
Most of the individual profiles include photos as well, so you can put a face to a name. Here is a link to the profile on Wesley B. Speas: http://winstonsalemtimetraveler.com/2014/11/20/november-20-happy-birthday-wesley-b-speas/
Have you taken the school quiz that appeared in the October 1st post? See how much you know about our schools.
Stay tuned for the next historical post on October 15th: “Vintage Baseball Photo” or “Who are those men hanging out with Ernie Shore?”
