[picture]New Lincoln School
The Lincoln School was established in 1917 by the Rockefeller-funded General Education Board as “a pioneer experimental school for newer educational methods,” under the aegis of Columbia University's Teachers College. In 1941 Teachers College merged Lincoln School with Horace Mann School, which it operated as a demonstration school. When Teachers College closed down the combined school in 1946, parents of Lincoln School enrollees established the New Lincoln School at the Central Park North facility in 1948 to carry on the tradition of progressive, experimental education, concentrating on the individual child, offering an interdisciplinary core program as well as electives in elementary grades, and emphasizing the arts. The New Lincoln School shut its doors in 1971.

This sub-pocket contains numerous documents providing insight into the daily operations of the school such as correspondences
& memoranda sent between faculty, staff and parents, as well as photographs, depicting scenes from school life. The sub-pocket also contains items that document some of the major milestones in the schools’ history such as important newspaper articles, many documenting the admittance of a young black student, Minnijean Brown (see also Minnie Jean Brown) to the school. Minnijean Brown was expelled from Little Rock Central High School after numerous racially charged incidents. She was offered and accepted a scholarship to attend the New Lincoln School.
