(03/19/2009) In the woods not far from the current Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys, up a dirt road, and up a hill is a small cemetery with 31 unmarked graves. Some of the White House Boys think the bodies of children murdered by guards at the Florida School for Boys are buried in the cemetery. Some of the graves can be attributed to students killed in a 1914 fire. Others can be attributed to a flu epidemic that swept the campus, but not all are accounted for.
    Read the classic Tampa Bay Times story that exposed a dark chapter of Florida history.
