John Weldon Scott, February 11,
2005 In reference to our
article about the Hygienic School.
info. There was an article I read about the school board and John P.
Scott was a member. A friend told me her grandfather was John P.
Scott and I told her I think he was the one. I do know that my
grandfather, Prof. J. P. Scott knew Mr. Howard and I'm not sure who is
who and what is what. Do you have a listing of the school board members
and how they were selected? Could a person from Harrisburg be on the
Board of Steelton? I think at the time it was possible, especially
for a Black school.
