Copyprint of a potrait of W.H. Passon. W. H. Passon was an African American educator in Central Texas during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The collection is comprised of two journals that record the daily affairs of the West Austin School and Clarksville School from 1908 to 1918 and the Olive Street School from 1918 to 1926, all schools in which Passon served as principal. Passon married Mittie T. Carr of Oakwoods, Texas in 1884. He was a faithful member of the Metropolitan A. M. E. Church. His effort to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the church in 1907 resulted in The Historical and Biographical Souvenir and Program of Metropolitan A.M.E. Church, Austin, Texas, 1882-1907, one of the earliest written histories of the church and African American life in Austin, Texas. Passon died in 1933. In 1979 the W. H. Passon Historical Society was founded with the aim of promoting the history of Austin's African American community.
