Record Books from Clayton, NC Now Online

DigitalNC is happy to announce that 9 new records books from the town of Clayton, N.C. have been digitized. We would like to thank our partners at Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library (Clayton, N.C.) for making this possible.

The 9 materials are as follows:

Partial school record for one student named Eugene Hinton. It shows Eugene's grades and demographic information for the school year 1924.

Partial school record for Eugene Hinton, Clayton City Schools Pupils Record [1923-1924].

Several of these materials list the names of registered voters in Clayton. The registration books also list information such as race (but with only two columns, white or colored), age, residence, place of birth, and changes in registration (such as deceased).

One other material of note is the Clayton City Schools Pupils Record book, which lists close to 600 students who attended, for however short or long a time, Clayton City Schools for the 1923-1924 school year. This book covers students from primary to high school, noting their name, year, date of birth, age, physical defects, the day they entered school, left school, the reason why they left school, parent, parent’s occupation, local address, and, of course, their grades for the year and if they moved on to the next grade level.
