Ground was broken for the Fargo Agricultural School in Monroe County. Floyd B. Brown founded the school to provide the equivalent of elementary and secondary vocational education for African-American students. The school was for both day and residential students and was modeled after the Tuskegee Institute, which Brown attended, where students learned practical skills intended to help them achieve success and economic security. By the 1940s, enrollment approached 200 students.
