Abstract:

Professor Florida Jackson Yeldell was born in Georgetown, South Carolina, on January 2, 1915. Yeldell went to boarding school at Morris College at fifteen and later earned her A.B. degree in English from the school in 1936. She then taught elementary school for two years. During the Great Depression, Yeldell received a scholarship to attend Howard University, where she received her M.A. degree in history in 1941. After World War II, Yeldell began teaching at colleges in Texas with her longest stint at Prairie View A&M teaching Western civilization, U.S. history and social studies. She retired from the school in 1979 and ten years later moved back to her childhood home in South Carolina. In her retirement, Yeldell was active in volunteering and teaching about the life of blacks in Georgetown County. She passed away on May 25, 2006.
