Live @ the Library: Author Jerry Armor

Samford University Library is excited to welcome Jerry Armor for Live @ the Library, on April 17th at 6 p.m. in the Davis Library. 

Mr. Armor will be presenting his latest book, A Home for Wayward Boys: the Early History of the Alabama Boys’ Industrial School, which recounts how Elizabeth Johnston, with the support of women across the state, persuaded the legislature to establish the Alabama Boys’ Industrial School in 1900.

Jerry Armor served seven years as a juvenile probation officer, two years as a psychologist in one of the state’s prisons, and taught 30 years at Calhoun Community College and Athens State University. Today, he directs the Lawrence County Children’s Policy Council and teaches part time. He has written extensively for both academic and general interest publications.
