[picture]Teachers College: The First Forty Years, 1886 - 1926
This exhibition provides a glimpse into the beginnings of Teachers College, from its founder, Grace Hoadley Dodge, to its rapid growth and expansion by the mid-1920s. Lawrence A. Cremin, through his historical text A History of Teachers College Columbia University (1954), brings the story of the College to life as the central voice in this exhibition.

The history of the first forty years is here told through three themes: the founders, the growth of TC, and the perspective of the students and faculty. The founders, Grace Hoadley Dodge (benefactor and founder), Nicholas Murray Butler (first President) and James E. Russell (first Dean) are featured in a series of portraits as well as the timeline. TC would not exist without the contributions these three individuals made to the school in their own, distinct ways. The growth of TC is documented through original blueprints for the school’s first buildings at 120th Street. A selection of excerpts from journals, pictures, and yearbooks provide snapshots of the lives of TC’s students and faculty at its beginning.

This exhibition was curated by Linnea Westerberg, a Masters degree student in the Art & Art Education Program.
