Black History Month: Moses Leonard Frazier, NYLS First African American Graduate
Moses Leonard Frazier, Class of 1899, is believed to have been NYLS First African American Graduate. In the early days of NYLS, students enrolled by signing a student registration ledger and writing certain basic information about themselves, e.g., their age (in years, months and days!), the college or graduate school they had attended (although a college degree was not a requirement for admission to NYLS until the 1960s), their address and the names and addresses of their parents or guardians. Moses Leonard Frazier’s signature appears on the Student Ledger Book 7, page 13, line 9. A collection of all student ledgers can be found on the NYLS Digital Commons Page. The post Black History Month: Moses Leonard Frazier, NYLS First African American Graduate appeared first on Mendik Matters.
