Jerry Armor.   Introduction by Dr. Wayne Flynt, Auburn University Professor Emeritus of History

Date and Time:  Thursday, March 19 at 3 p.m.

Location:  Ralph Brown Draughon Library, Ground Floor, Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium

When reformer Elizabeth Johnston walked among the convicts in an Alabama prison mining camp, she was stunned to see teenage boys working alongside hardened criminals.  A Home for Wayward Boys recounts how Johnston, with the support of women across the state, persuaded the legislature to establish the Alabama Boys' Industrial School in 1900.

Jerry Armor served seven years as a juvenile probation officer, two years as a psychologist in one of the state's prisons, and taught thirty years at Calhoun Community College and Athens State University.  Today, he directs the Lawrence County Children's Policy Council and teaches part-time.

Reception and book signing to follow.
