This is an old postcard that I purchased on e-bay, showing High School of Commerce in Worcester, Massachusetts. My Great Uncle Wendell Phillip Culley attended this school between 1922-1925. He was one of the few African Americans that attended the High School and most of the time he was the only one in his class.

There are very few pictures of Wendell Culley [Jan 8, 1906-May 8, 1983]…I went to Worcester April 2011 to make copies of his school annual. Family members have told me that he rarely was seen in photo’s but since I have been digging and researching, I have been very lucky to find a few more that I will share at a later date.
