Fleming Middle School At 4910 Collingsworth St.


Recommended Posts

Named after Lamar Fleming, Jr.  this HISD school in fifth ward features a cool looking campus.

A little tidbit of Lamar Flemig, Jr. In 1911, when, for family financial reasons, he left school to join Anderson, Clayton and Company in Oklahoma City. He became the firm's representative in Holland and Germany in 1914, and from 1915 to 1922 he directed its operations in Italy under the name Lamar Fleming and Company.

Fleming became a resident of Texas in 1924. He retired from Anderson, Clayton and Company in 1960, having served as president from 1939 to 1953 and chairman of the board from 1953 to 1960.
