Description

Architectural drawing of Ballard-Hudson High School in Bibb County, Georgia. It shows the school from an overhead perspective. The text in the lower left hand corner reads "Senior High School for Negro Boys and Girls for Bibb County Board of Education and Orphanage. Ellamae Ellis League, Architect." This school was designed by Ellamae Ellis League, who opened her own architecture practice in Macon, Georgia in 1934. Before her retirement in 1975, League designed many churches, schools, and hospitals, which were reportedly her favorite projects. At the time of her death in 1991, she was the only woman in Georgia admitted as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects.
