Humphrey High School
Coleman, Texas

Even though this website primarily concentrates on Coleman High School,
I have included Humphrey High School.  This was the Negro School in Coleman
which integrated with Coleman High School in the fall of 1965.

I do not have a list of the students who attended there, as no records are available today,
but I am including obituaries of those deceased as they are located.
