Did you know that in 1961, Dorothy M. Bigelow Hamm served as a plaintiff in a court action to integrate the athletic program in Arlington Public Schools. Hamm's son, Edward Leslie, Jr, a student at the recently desegregated Stratford Jr. High School – had been denied access to the school's wrestling program due to the contact made between African American or Black and white students. As a result of this court action, the athletic program was eventually integrated at APS.
