Description

This map of Desha County, 1952-1954, illustrates county and school district boundaries, school location, and school bus routes, with notes of race.

Biographical/Historical Note

In 1949, the Arkansas Department of Education began issuing county maps to record data necessary to determining transportation aid allocations for each county. Initially, the maps showed the school levels and the race of students at each location. The bus routes also noted what race they were to carry. This racial distinction is not shown in the maps printed after desegregation.
