"Julius Dorsey was born July 17, 1876, in New Albany, Miss. He graduated from high school in 1896 in Kaufman, Texas, and attended George Peabody College, where he earned a Bachelor of Science (1916) and a Master of Arts (1920). His emphasis on educational administration was child centered, and he gave lively support to the less rigorous subjects as art, music, libraries, and homemaking. Dorsey served as superintendent of the Dallas Independent School District for five years, retiring in August of 1945." (From: Dallas Independent School District website for Julius Dorsey Elementary School). Additional information in the book, Education in Dallas: Ninety-two Years of History 1874-1966 by Walter J. E.
