â€œFalls Church Notes,â€ Washington Bee, December 20, 1913, 5
Mr. William Carpenter, contractor and builder, is now completing a six thousand dollar building on the grounds of the Virginia Training School for the Feeble-Minded, here. This, too, is another instance of race competence in the trades. Mr. Carpenter has proved himself a master builder. He has also just completed a $1,000 house at Ft. Myer for Mr. Izell, a citizen of color.
