This Day in Delaware History

1927 – Time magazine, with Pierre S. du Pont, II, featured on its cover, reported that he had already spent $5 million on Delaware schools. He was also credited with building 89 schools for African American children, when the state would not.

Delawareans should never forget the deep debt of gratitude we owe to the generosity of the du Pont family over many years. They’ve done more for us than we remember and they deserve better from us.
