Historical Sketch

Perseverance, dedication and integrity can all be used to describe pioneering Annie, L. McPheeters.

After teaching in Summerville, GA and Greenville, SC, McPheeters earned a bachelor's degree in library science from Hampton University in 1933. A year later, she went on to become the first African-American professional librarian with the Atlanta Public Library. In 1950, McPheeters accepted the position of Reference Librarian with, Georgia State University, becoming the first African-American faculty member at the school. She later obtained her master's degree in library science from Columbia University in 1956 and furthered her education by enrolling in journalism courses at Georgia State University and Clark College during the seventies.

However, McPheeters' list of accomplishments doesn't end there. Listed below are some of her numerous achievements:
