Piecing Together History: Dr. T.T. Wendell and Kentucky’s African-American Community
KHS’s Martin F. Schmidt Library is bringing out the Dr. T.T. Wendell collection for contextual analysis and photo identification. Dr. T.T. Wendell was a prominent African-American doctor in Lexington from the turn of the century until his retirement in 1952. During his medical tenure, he also became a well respected community leader, involved in many educational, civic and religious organizations. The collection he left behind includes documents, correspondence and a large number of photographs documenting meetings and community events throughout Central Kentucky.
We are asking any community members, historians, genealogists or neighbors to attend this event to help us learn more about the people who shaped Kentucky’s African-American communities!
