This is an awesome piece of history. I really enjoy this blog. Were there other books like this written for later decades?

Thanks for the wonderful feedback. You can see other publications that we have by the Birmingham Board of Education on our catalog: It does not look like there are any other publications that cover a whole decade, but there are several year end reports.
