Newtown School students, 191o. In 1910, Newtown was one of two segregated "Mexican"
schools in Fort Davis. An 1894 photo (see page 314 of this issue) shows no Mexicans although
the school was not officially segregated at the time. The creation of"Mexican" schools in 1904
resulted in a great increase in the number of Mexican students in the public schools. Paul
Wright's article, "Residential Segregation in Two Early West Texas Towns," beginning on
page 295 of this issue, discusses patterns of residential segregation in Fort Davis and Alpine
and the effects of segregation and discrimination on schools, churches, and businesses.
