For their own good

These aerial photographs show how the northern portion of the campus of the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys has changed in the past 69 years. The cemetery cannot be distinguished in some of the early photos because there is no record of grave markers being placed until the 1960s, when a superintendent had concrete crosses erected. In the 1990s, those markers were discarded and replaced by pipe crosses, which can be seen the first slide.
