Wordless Wednesday : Alan T Busby & Osborne Ambrose Cully at Storr's Agricultural College

Adopted Maternal Ancestry

I did a post about Alan T. Busby's headstone yesterday and thought I would share a couple of the photos that were taken between 1917-1918 at the Storr's Agricultural College, known as University of Connecticut.  Alan T. Busby was my Grand Uncle Osborne Ambrose Cully's childhood friend from Worcester, MA.  Alan Busby was the first African American to graduate from the University of Connecticut, and there is a residential student living dorm on campus named after him.

Since this posting, I discovered that there is also a farm named after Alan T. Busby:
