An apparently unrecorded catalogue for an early North Carolina African American school. Around 1880, the state legislature in North Carolina provided funding for two normal schools in the eastern part of the state to train African American teachers - one in Fayetteville (now Fayetteville State University) and the present school, which moved to Elizabeth City in 1903 and is now Elizabeth City State University. This early catalogue includes lists of faculty, students (as well as their hometowns), former students, courses of study, testimonials, and the books held by the school's library (a total of twelve titles). The two full-page illustrations depict the school building and the principal of the school, Rev. J.W. McDonald. No copies listed in OCLC.
