Nation Youth Administration, State Office, 1 S. 4th St., Columbus, Ohio


A black and white National Youth Administration photograph showing a man sitting at a desk upon which radio broadcasting equipment is situated. The teacher is turned to a group of African American students, who are listening to him. They are all wearing white lab coats and are sitting in chairs. Behind them in the background of the image is a blackboard. On the wall at the left of the image is a board with pieces of paper with various radio call signs printed on them, as well as a map of the United States which has been divided into different regions. On top of the radio equipment at the desk is the call sign, "Radio station W8VKL." Mary McLeod Bethune was the Director of Negro Affairs for the National Adimistration during the 1940's, and probably obtained this photograph during her time as an NYA agent. On the back of the photograph is the stamp of the NYA.
