In 1949 Robert E. Lee School and Washington School began to merge.  By 1956 the Robert E. Lee students had joined the students of the newly remodeled Washington School.  The school became known as Washington-Lee School.



The Washington and Lee Portraits and Scrapbooks collection contains ten Parent-Teacher Association Scrapbooks and four notebooks of Meeting Minutes.  Also there are student portraits from the 1964-65 school year; the class photographs are from the 1963-64 and the 1964-65 school years.  Some of the scrapbooks and notebooks contain information specific to Washington or Lee; others acknowledge the merge of the two schools, and are titled “Washington-Lee.”
