New Percy L. Julian Exhibit

The West Town Musuem now features an updated exhibit on Dr. Percy L. Julian, a pioneer scientist and former Maywood resident. Also, Operation Uplift, The Maywood Historical Society, and Housing Helpers are initiating an effort to consider renaming Washington Elementary School in Maywood as Washington - Julian Elementary. Dr. Julian lived in Maywood for 15 years and served as PTA President for that same school which his children attended. A petition drive in underway.
