Abraham Peeler Papers
Abraham H. Peeler (1904-1991) was an important leader in the local African American community for many decades. He is perhaps best remembered as the principal of J.C. Price Elementary School, a position he held from 1931 to 1969. This collection is rich in information relating to the local public school system, particularly J.C. Price School, and the evolution of African American education in North Carolina. The Price School Scrapbook is particularly noteworthy as it documents the long history of the school.
