Abstract E. Leff Wagoner was superintendent of public instruction in Alleghany County, N.C., around the turn of the 20th century. Letters, 1901-1905, relating to public education in Alleghany County, N.C., most of them from Wagoner to Martin A. Higgins, chair of the Alleghany County Board of Education. Letters relate chiefly to management issues, including Wagoner's apparently constant battle to compile enough information on activities at the county schools to allow him to make informed budget requests to Raleigh. There are also a few letters from Wagoner to teachers, chiefly summoning them to meetings and informing them of the district's progress, and a few letters from state Superintendent James Yadkin Joyner, including one in 1904 instructing school board members on how to select a county superintendent.
