The Daily Union History of Atlantic City and County (Atlantic City, New Jersey: Daily Union Printing, 1900), page 271, says Thomas was
Supervisor of Drawing in the local public schools.
The Bulletin of Atlanta University (Atlanta, Georgia, number 148, October 1904), page 1, has this sketch on her:
Miss Alexcenah Thomas, of Philadelphia, Pa., comes to us as Supervisor of Primary Work and Critic Teacher in the Oglethorpe Practice School.
Miss Thomas is a graduate of the School of Education in Chicago University, and has had long and valuable experience.
For eleven years she was engaged in primary and intermediate work in the public schools of Greensburg, Pa., and Tacoma, Wash., after which she held successively the positions of Principal of the Modal School in connection with the City Normal School of Springfield, Mass., Primary Supervisor for all the public schools of Atlantic City, N. J., and Principal of the Model School in connection with the State Normal School of East Stroudsburg, N. Y.
During her six years in Atlantic City she had the supervision of fifty-nine rooms, of which eleven were filled with colored children.
