John Tarleton Home for Children

Reader Mark Deaver sent these photos to me with the following note:
I came across your Old Knoxville Baseball website and thought you would like these two old photos of my Grandmother's brother playing for John Tarleton Chirldren's Home in Knoxville in 1935 and 1936. His name was Charlie Graham (he is seated 1st row left in the 1935 photo) and he played for the baseball team as well as the football team at the home.

Information on John Tarleton can be found here.


  1. My father was at John Tarlton from 1929 until around 1936. Do you know of any more records and/or photos?

    1. I have read that the Knoxville Historical Society downtown would have more information.
