About this collection

Indiana State Library

 

“The system of public education…is, in its fundamental principles, the only system on which we can hope for success, and which will, in the end, prove satisfactory to the people.” - William C. Larabee, Superintendent of Public Instruction, first annual report to the General Assembly, 1853.

 

The Indiana State Library maintains a large collection of publications on education, including annual reports from the Superintendent of Public Instruction [1853 to present], pertaining to the history of education in the Hoosier state.  Among these resources are high school and college yearbooks, reports from the Indiana State Teacher’s Association, educational publications for teachers, school directories, and periodicals from long-closed institutes from around the state. Relevant unpublished materials from the library’s manuscripts collections include papers from students and educators—such as correspondence, report cards, copy books, school assignments, examinations, teaching certificates, oral histories, and photographs—as well as records from educational institutions and organizations.

 

This digital collection highlights many of these materials concerning education and more additions are expected.
