 Photo of thirty-five Cookeville Cavalry men in uniform, mounted on horses.

Yearbooks and photographs of Darwin School, Cookeville, Tennessee, owned by principal Isaac Herbert Bohanon and teacher Amanda Beatrice Bohanon. The public school educated Upper Cumberland Black elementary through high school students. The Tennessee Tech University Archives does not house the original materials, but was given permission by the owners to digitize and publish them online.


The collection documents William Everett Derryberry’s term as President of Tennessee Technology University (1940-1974) and his personal and professional life outside of the university. He managed the university through disruption during World War II, growth in enrollment after the war, physical expansion of the campus, integration and student movements during the 1960s and 1970s, and the university’s name change from Tennessee Polytechnic Institute in 1965. For the finding aid, see
