About

Raymond Pace Alexander had law office here.

"Raymond Pace Alexander, who hails from a storied North Philadelphia family, was not just the first Black person to graduate from P{enn's Wharton School, he also became one of the city's first Black developers. When white landlors refused to rent space for his law practice in 1934, he erected his own office building. The handsom, three-story building at 19th and Chestnut is now part of a Target store." Phila. Inquirer, 7/12/20, at pp. F1, F5. See https://www.inquirer.com/philly/business/real_estate/commercial/20150616_TargetExpress_store_planned_for_part_of_Boyd_site_at_19th___Chestnut.html.
