Dr. Garnett C. Wilkinson House, 406 U Street, NW
Wilkinson (1874-1969) devoted his life to African American public education in D.C. He taught Latin and mathematics at M Street High School, was Principal of Armstrong Technical High, and—when M Street High relocated in 1916 and changed its name—was the first Principal of Dunbar High School.
But Wilkinson is best remembered for his service as the first Assistant Superintendent of Colored Schools in Washington, a post he held for over 30 years. His leadership was so valued that he postponed retirement at the Board of Education's request three times, finally retiring at the age of 72 in 1951.
