'The History of Barton Academy' by B. W. Watson

Classification: Query
Surnames: Burroughs
I hope somebody might be able to assist me. I am based in the UK and am in the process of carrying out research for an extensive essay I am currently writing. On the 1900 census I have located two brothers named Horace and Mortimer Burroughs residing as boarders at the boarding house of Franklin Jackson McCoy at 701 Government Street, Mobile. They are both 'At School', so I assume that this was a term-time address. I am keen to confirm where the two brothers attended school. Given its proximity to 701 Government Street, I assume they were schooled at the nearby Barton Academy, but can't be certain. I wondered if anybody might have a copy of 'The History of Barton Academy' by Bama Wathan Watson (pub. 1971), as I believe it contains class lists. If so, I wondered if somebody might be good enough to check this publication for any reference to the Burroughs brothers. Many thanks.
