Julius Rosenwald, former president of Sears, Roebuck, Co. and an elite businessman, desired to improve the well-being of mankind through access to education. A number of Southerners are familiar with him as the founder of the Fund that established more than 5,300 rural schools in 15 Southern states. However, there is a major piece of the puzzle missing; the Julius Rosenwald Fund Library Program, 1927-1947. This groundbreaking program contributed to and established more than 10,000 libraries to include book sets, bookmobiles, and physical locations to increase literacy among African Americans as a means to increase educational opportunities.
