Description

Reverse reads: "Greene Co., Yellow Springs, O. April. 26, 1937. Horace Mann Memorial." The memorial reads: "Horace Mann. 1796 - 1859. First President and Founder of Antioch College. This memorial is erected to perpetuate the memory of an able lawyer, a great statesman and a pioneer in education. May his life and example ever inspire and exalt the students of Antioch College. Hugh Taylor Birch, Donor - 1936." The Christian Church, a Protestant denomination, founded Antioch College in 1852 as a coeducational, nonsectarian college. A congressman, abolitionist, and reformer, Horace Mann became the first president of Antioch College in 1852. Under Mann, Antioch College adopted a radical new curriculum including study of sciences in addition to liberal arts and classroom discussion. The college also adopted many of Mann's social ideals. It was one of the first to allow women students to study the same curriculum as white men.
