    Thank you so much. My maternal grandmother is Dora Whitted, who later married Thomas A. Keller, whom she met at North Carolina Mutual.

    The Whitted sisters were the daughters of prominent Durham educator, James A. Whitted. Whitted School near Hillside Park was named in his honor and he was the first African American to serve as a school principal in Durham.  His sister Louisa Whitted Burton was also and educator and Burton Elementary School was named in her honor.  

    It is assumed that the street was named Whitted due to the number of members of the family who lived on it.

     

    Sallie worked as a teacher before becoming a clerk at the North Carolina Mutual. She worked at the Mutual for over thirty years and retired in 1950 after reach the position of Chief Clerk and Supervisor Premier Credit Division.

    Eva also worked at the Mutual but left after marrying on of the Executives there, Martin A.Goins, Senior.
