WCW continues to celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth, and today, we highlight the life and work of Archie Alexander, an African American mathematician and engineer who graduated from the University of Iowa and was the first African American to graduate from the University’s College of Engineering.

Archie was a foreman for a bridge-building company before starting his own business in 1917. He was responsible for constructing many roads and bridges, including the Whitehurst Freeway, the tidal Basin Bridge, and an extension to the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. #BlackHistoryIsAmericanHistory

Feeling a little down after yesterday's heartbreaking Superbowl loss, then we remembered seeing this cute, little deer with its family last week.

Feeling better! #westcounty #mondays

As WCW continues to celebrate Black History Month, we put the spotlight on Dorothy Johnson Vaughn, a mathematician and human computer who worked for NASA at Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.

In 1949, she became acting supervisor of the West Area Computers, the first African-American woman to supervise a group of staff at the center.

She was later officially promoted to supervisor and learned and taught staff to work an IBM machine computer, which used FORTRAN programming language in the 1960's. #BlackHistoryMonth #HiddenFigures #BlackHistoryIsAmericanHistory
