    I am not sure why there is no mention of Dr. Maryland teaching at Laurinburg Institute prio to Alabama State. I am positive and do know the founder of this school are also from Alabama. The school started in 1904 under the direction of Booker T. Washington. I also know at least one student he taught jut happens to be the granddaughter of the founder. Dr. Frances McDuffie Foster.
