THE OLDEST COLORED FLORIST
Mr. George H. Siddons, one of Baltimore's most respected citizens
is probably the oldest colored florests not only in Baltimore but in the
He is active in Church, Secret and Social Orders. To Mr. William
Harrod who has been a confidential clerk to Mr. Sidclons for 29 years,
he owes some of his success in business, and certainly there is credit
due to such a faithful employee.
Carrington L. Davis, Vice-Principal of the Colored High School,
is a teacher of broad training and large experience. He has been a
large factor in molding the character of many young men and women
who have come under the influence of his personality in the course of
their high school education.
Mr. Davis is also interested in a large way in all movements that
have for their object the broader social development of the colored
people of this community. He was Chairman of the Campaign Com-
mittee of the Victory Hospital drive that succeeded uncSer the leader-
ship of Dr. William H. Weaver in securing sufficient funds to purcha.se
the Union Protestant Infirmary as a Hospital for Colored People.
No record of educational forces, nor of character building on a
large scale and along right lines, in this city, can be complete without
some mention of Miss Fannie L. Barbour, Head of the Department of
Mathematics at the Colored High School.
Miss Barbour was among the first group of teachers appointed to
the school, having been transferred from School 109 immediately upon
the organization of the High School under a Colored Faculty.
An exceptional teacher, a sympathetic but firm disciplinarian, and
a woman of broad vision, she has had the unusuai privelege of starting
on the right road a, very large number of the boys and girls who are
the substantial citizens of our community today. The fruits of her
work are everywhere visible among us.
Ralph W. Reckling, Head of the Department of English and
History, is another member of the faculty of the Colored High School,
who is doing splendid work in the development of our youth. Though
quiet and assuming, Mr. Reckling is a teacher of pronounced ability
and a strong force through precept and example in the development in
the pupils of the school of clean thinking and an intelligent apprecation
of the problems of their every-day life. Many of our boys and girls
owe to him their correct evolution of culture a.nd accuracy in expressing
themselves upon any matters in which they may be interested.
