             Photographs related to the Fouse family, an African American family whom lived in Lexington, Kentucky. 
         
         
             Scope and Contents note 
             The Fouse family photographs consist of 16 images including cartes de visite, gelatin silver prints and a tintype. Most of the images are of Elizabeth Beatrice Cooke Fouse (1875-1952). One image depicts the dedication of the "William Henry Fouse Athletic Field" at Dunbar High School (1940) and features William Henry Fouse (1868-1944). One image depicts a chapter of the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union of the U.S. (1924) and includes Elizabeth Beatrice Cooke Fouse. The tintype is of an unidentified African-American male. 
         
         
             History 
             In 1893, Mr. Fouse was the first African American graduate of Otterbein College, in Westerville, Ohio. He began his academic career by founding the Corydon (Indiana) High School, where he remained until 1904 when he began his tenure as principal of Lincoln School in Gallipolis, Ohio. In 1908 Mr. Fouse became principal of the William Grant High School in Covington, Kentucky. 
             Moving to Lexington, Kentucky in 1913, Mr. Fouse supervised the Russell School until 1923 when the Paul Laurence Dunbar High School was constructed and he served as its principal until his retirement in 1938. 
             Elizabeth Fouse was a graduate of the University of Cincinnati and a teacher who was active in numerous educational, religious, social and temperance organizations. She founded Lexington's Phyllis Wheatley Young Women's Christian Association (currently, in 1996, the Wheatley YWCA spells its name as Ms. Wheatley did: Phillis), was president of the Kentucky Chapter of the National Association of Colored Women in addition to serving as the scholarship division chair of the N.A.C.W. Mrs. Fouse was a member of the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union and the Kentucky Negro Education Association. 
             The Dunbar High School portion of the collection includes information about athletic activities, and the cafeteria. A radio script prepared by Professor Fouse for a broadcast (30 April 1939) over station WLAP focused on the history of education of the black community in Lexington.
