Instructor Lists and Biographies
When developing the history of a school, it’s important to know who instructed, as well whom they instructed and when. Instructors can be divided into three groups: (1) those who instructed before the conclusion of the Civil War, (2) those who instructed between the conclusion of the Civil War and 1892, and (3) those who instructed between 1892 and 1953, which followed Brown vs Board of Education in December, 1952.

About the Instructor Rosters
Use these rosters of white and Black instructors who taught in Loudoun County public schools from 1893 to 1953. Virtually every instructor that operated between those years is listed. The rosters also provide minimal biographical and teaching permit information, and list the assigned school.
The PDF’s in this list were derived from information transmitted by the Loudoun County Public School system to the Superintendent of Instruction in Richmond. The originals are in the Library of Virginia in Richmond, as are tapes which can be copied. Keep in mind that data kept in Richmond can conflict with data in Loudoun County. Also, while Blacks were not permitted to instruct at white schools, white instructors sometimes taught in “colored” schools in the early days of segregation.
The plan is to list every instructor who taught Blacks from 1892 to 1953, with biographies. This information can be gleaned by going to the individual school pages or to a growing list of biographies in this section.
