1 The Ridge Hill Gazette
Ridge Spring SC Ridge Hill High School 1949 Softcover 
High school newspaper on good quality paper. Light wear, small tears and chips, with scattered foxing and light aging, Horizontal crease across mid-line, probably from original fold from press. Overall, this old newspaper is in remarkable condition, VG-EX. ; Vol. I, No. 3; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 6 pages; School newspaper from an African-American School in the small town of Ridge Spring in South Carolina, about halfway between Augusta, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina. Ridge Hill School was one of several hundred African-American started by the Julius Rosenwald Foundation in 1924. The original school burned and was replaced in the 1930's by the brick school which was still in operation in 1949 when this newspaper was published. Quite a high quality student newspaper in remarkable condition. Finding high school newspapers in reasonable condition is always hit or miss. Finding one from a small, historic African-American School is especially unusual. Scarce African-American and South Carolina-related item.

Speaking on the Baxter R. R. Proposition by Prominent Colored Speakers, [Baxter, Jere]
14 [Baxter, Jere] Speaking on the Baxter R. R. Proposition by Prominent Colored Speakers
Nashville Boylin Printing Co. N.D. Broadside Very Good- 
Thin paper browned with some wear and small chips on edges. Excellent condition overall. See scan. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 1 pages; Jere Baxter was a rail promoter who tried to break the L&N monopoly in Nashville Tennessee. Around 1900 he attempted to gain access for his railroad, The Tennessee Central, to Nashville's newly opened Union Station. Public meetings were held and speakers spoke. This broadside seems to be for a meeting of African-Americans in which the speakers attempted to show the affects of the dispute on the African-American community. The speakers are for the most part African-American clergymen, though W. A. Crosthwait was an African-American attorney in Nashville. Other speakers were: Rev. C. B. Wilson, Rev. Luke Mason, J. C. Crowley, Andrew Clarkson, and P. F. Hill.
