At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Springfield High 
School Alumni in the spring of 1901, the question was asked by one 
of the members, "How many graduates are there of the High School, 
and where are they located?" 

The first part of the question — how many graduates are there — 
was easily answered by referring to the records of the Board of Edu- 
cation. The number of these graduates who are still living and 
their location, not being a matter of record, the latter part of the 
question could not be answered. 

The question was then discussed of obtaining information as 
to the whereabouts of the graduates of the school and publishing 
it in book form, together with the business they are engaged in and 
their callings in life. Out of this discussion has grown this Histori- 
cal Souvenir. 

Mr. I. E. Diller, of the class of 1871, President of the High 
7 School Alumni, was authorized to take charge of the work. Mr. 
y Diller selected Mr. F. C. Dodds, of the class of 1881, and Miss 
Marcia B. Odam, of the class of 1891, to assist him. 

The committee entered at once upon the work of collecting the 

necessary data and putting it in shape for publication. This task 

^^^ proved to be one of large proportions. The committee found at the 

^^__outset that the 1,200 graduates of the Springfield High School are 

K, 5r- scattered all over the United States, and that to obtain any sort of 

«=i reliable information as to their exact location and calling in life 

^ would require much more time than it had thought would be neces- 

g sary to compile' the Souvenir. When the work was commenced it 

">- was the intention of the committee to have the Souvenir ready for 

Qi distribution at the x4.1umni Reunion in June, 1901. This, however, 

Qwas found to be out of the question, and the efEorts of the committee 

jwere directed to the end of having their work completed and ready 

. \for the Reunion in 1902. 

iNi °i The work of collecting the data published herewith was beset 
with many difficulties and delays. A vast amount of correspondence 

4 Sprixgfield High School. 

was necessary to definitely locate those who are living in other cities 
and States. The committee regrets that it was unable to get but 
meager information with respect to many who have graduated from 
the High School. It realizes, too, that its work is not perfect and 
complete. That there are errors in the Souvenir, it does not doubt, 
it being necessary in many cases to accept unofficial data Avhich it 
had no means of verifying. It feels, however, that it has laid the 
foundation for future publications, and that with the material here 
presented the future historian of the graduates of the Springfield 
High School will be enabled to prosecute his work much more ex- 
tensively and with less difficulty and delay than it has liad to con- 
tend with. 

Volumes could be written about the many good men and women 
who go to make up the Alumni of the High School. The committee, 
however, has not gone into details concerning their life work. 

It was thought that the reproduction of the program of the 
Commencement Exercises of the various classes would be of interest 
to the readers of the Souvenir. All of these programs are not a 
matter of record and it was necessary to resort to the files of news- 
papers for copies of them. They are reproduced just as they ap- 
peared in the public press at the time. Following the program is a 
list of the graduates in each class. 

The committee desires to thank all who have so kindly assisted 
it in its work and those who have contributed the funds which made 
the publication of this Souvenir possible.

Springfield High School. 

The first school iu Springfield was opened in 1821, three years 
after the first settlement, and was taught by Mr. Andrew Orr. Dur- 
ing the thirty years that followed, private schools were conducted to 
which pupils were admitted upon pa}-ment of tuition, the most 
prominent of which was the Academy, incorporated in 1839 ; but 
it was not until the year 1854 that steps were taken to establish free 
public schools. By an amended charter, approved March '2, 1854, 
the city was organized as the "Springfield School District,"' and the 
City Council authorized to establish and maintain free schools for 
the education of all wliite persons between the ages of five and 
twenty-one years of age; and to appoint seven Inspectors, to be de- 
nominated as the Board of School Inspectors, and to prescribe their 
duties. In accordance with this charter, an ordinance was passed 
August 21, 1854, defining the powers of the Board and dividing the 
city into four sub-districts, corresponding to the wards of the city. 
A lot in each Avard had already been purchased for school purposes. 
Buildings in the First and Third wards were completed in the spring 
of 185(>, and were immediately opened for the admission of pupils. 
Very soon thereafter, these buildings could not accommodate all the 
pupils, and public schools were opened in the First Baptist and First 
Presbvterian Cliurches. School buildings were erected in the Second 
and Fourth wards at a cost of $10,000 each, and were opened in Sep- 
tember, 1858. 

At a meeting of the Board of Inspectors held July 20, 1857, the 
Committee on Examination of Teachers was instructed to inquire 
into the expediency of revising the course of study pursued in the 
schools. The members of this Board, at that time, were : Jolm W. 
Priest, President; E. Baker, Secretary; Isaac S. Britton, J. ^Marvin, 
Charles E. Dodge, John A. McClernand, and J. S, Yredenburgh. 
The report of this committee, covering nearly eight ledger pages 
of the record, closely written, was presented July 27, and was signed 
bv Isaac S. Britton, Chas. E. Dodge, and J. Marvin. Already certain

higher English branches were taught in the ward schools. This 
committee in the report advised that these higher branches, be 
stricken from the course, and "that a separate and independent de- 
partment be organized, to be called 'The Department of Science," 
which should include Xatural Philosophy, Physical Geography, 
Elements of Algebra, Physiology and Hj^giene, General Exercises in 
the Elements of Elocution and in Composition, and the Grammar 
of Composition and Declamation; and that this department be 
placed in charge of a male preceptor to receive a salary of $500 a 
year, and that this department for the present occupy a room on the 
second floor of the Third Ward School Building." 

This committee, at the end of the lengthy report, summarized 
its recommendations in eight resolutions, the fifth one containing 
the recommendation of a "Department of Science." 

When presented to the Board, Mr. John A. McClernand moved 
to amend by striking out the fifth resolution and that part of the 
report relating to the establishing of a "Department of Science," 
and insert the following: 

"Resolved, That a Central or High School be established with 
such riiles, regulations and course of study as hereafter may be 
adopted, to be taught by a competent teacher hereafter to be selected, 
said school to be taught in some central and convenient building." 

Upon the vote, a division was called for and five members were 
recorded as voting for the amendment and two against it. The re- 
port, as amended, was then unanimously adopted. This was the 
first official action relating to the establishment of a free High School 
in the City of Springfield. 

At a meeting of the Board held August 24, 1857, Mr. McClernand 
of the committee appointed to recommend studies for the High 
School, made this report: "The committee charged with the duty 
of selecting and reporting the course of studies to be pursued in the 
Central High School, respectfully report : That they have diligently 
considered the important subject referred to them, and, as a result 
of their deliberations, recommend the following studies : 

For the male pupils, Natural Philosophy, Moral Philosophy, 
Political Economy, Surveying, and Bookkeeping. 

For the female pupils, The same studies, with the substitution 
of Botany and Physiology for Surveying and Bookkeeping. 

This report before adoption, was amended to include Algebra, 
and Geometry, and a review of Grammar, Geography and Arithmetic. 

At a meeting held September 8, Mr. Beaumont Parks was elected 

Alumni Association. 7 

as the first Principal of the High School, for the ensuing year, Mr. 
Chas. D. Arnold serving as assistant Principal. 

The school was opened in a small building in the Third ward, 
on .Market street, now known as Capitol avenue, just west of Spring 
street. JSTo record of the attendance of this first year of the High 
School can be found. 

As the building in which this school was taught the first year 
was small and not centrally located, it was transferred to the Fourth 
ward building, just completed, now known as the Lincoln school, 
and Mr. Andrew M. Brooks was made the principal of both the 
Fourth ward school and the High School. Forty-two pupils were 
enrolled the second year. 

In December, 1858, the course of study was revised, a number 
of branches added, and a classical course provided for, includ- 
ing Latin and Greek, which was designed for those preparing 
to enter college. In September, 1859, tuition in the High School 
for pupils living outside the city, was fixed at $21 a year. At the 
same meeting, as provided for in a resolution passed at a former 
meeting, Miss Sophia Chapin was elected as female assistant, Mr. 
Geo. Tourtellot having already been elected Principal. 

At the beginning of the third 3^ear, the school was located in the 
Academy Building, situated on South Fifth street, a short distance 
south of Monroe, this building having been procured by the City 
Council for this purpose. The High School was conducted in this 
place for six years. Very soon after the school was located here, 
the Board declared it an unsuitable place, and began to petition the 
Council for a new building. 

After the Council had decided that a new High School building 
should be erected, it was several years before an agreement upon 
the location of the site could be reached. The records of the meet- 
ings of the Council during the several years, while trying to select 
a High School site, make interesting reading. The subject became 
an issue at city elections, and several' aspiring statesmen were rele- 
gated to private life on account of their position on this important 
question. Finally the site -was selected at the southeast corner of 
Madison and Fourth streets, and in 1865 a new building was com- 
pleted at a cost of $65,000. The erection of this new building which 
was one of the best for educational purposes in the State at that 

8 Springfield High School. 

time, and its occupancy by the school transferred from the "Academy'* 
huilding, mark tlie beginning]: of a new and important era in the 
liistor}' of this institution. 

The school was conducted in this building for almost a third 
of a century, and here a large number of the boys and girls of the 
city, as well as many from the surrounding country, received their 
academic training. The people of the city were proud of this in- 
stitution and gave it hearty support. Connected with its history, 
during these years, are interesting associations which many of the 
older citizens, their children, and in some instances, their grand- 
children, deliglit to cherish in their memories. Thirty-three classes 
completed their High School studies in this building, the members 
of which received their diplomas at the annual commencements, which 
Avere great occasions for those interested in the High School, and 
are now recorded as Alumni of the Springfield High School. 

From time to iinie the courses of study were revised to keep 
pace with educational progress. It appears that in the early years 
of this school the boys and girls were in separate classes, and that 
there were several studies prescribed for boys that girls were not per- 
mitted to take, and vice versa. The record shows that forty years 
ago two Pangnnnasticons were purchased and one placed in the 
male department and the other in the female department. 'J'hese 
Avere to be used in connection with the physical training system. 

Early in the history of the school, the value of a library was 
a])preeiated and a beginning was made. In a report of the Superin- 
tendent, made early in the sixties, he says : "The library was in- 
creased during the A^ear about one hundred volumes. The greater 
part of this addition was obtained by a small appropriation made by 
tlie city last winter; tlie remainder was contributed by the scholars. 
An appropriation for this purpose should l^e made every year. Xo 
scholar is allowed to draw a novel from the library whose grade is 
under tA\-o and five-tenths, tliree being the maximum." 

Among the studies required for several years, were, Evidences of 
Christianity, ^Moral P]iih-)Sophy, and Mental Philosophy. Dr. 
Samuel Willard, Superintendent of schools in 1869-70, suggested that 
these studies were of doubtful value, and other more useful branches 
should be substituted in their place. He made these recommenda- 
tions as "an orthodox Christian and a father of children in the High 
School," believing that they should not study these branches until 
they had reached mature 3'ears. Dr. Willard's successor, !Mr. Ben- 

Alumni Assoclvtion. 9 

nett, followed up his recommendations, and very soon thereafter 
these branches were stricken from the course of study. 

A niarked improvement was made in 1883, when an outline of 
English work was prepared for each of the four years of all the 
courses, to be pursued by all pupils. This provided for each year, 
in connection with English language and Literature, the study of 
three or more American and English authors, thus affording an 
opportunity for pupils during the four years' course to study quite 
thoroughly some of the best works of at least twelve standard 
authors. This advance step, thus early taken by the High School, 
and the excellent work done 1\v the classes, has been highly com- 
mended ])y several of the leading universities. 

In 1887, application was made to have the High School placed 
on the accredited list of Michigan University, After an examina- 
tion by a committee of the faculty of the University, a favorable re- 
port was made, and since that time graduates from the Springfield 
High School have been admitted to the various courses of ^Michigan 
University upon certificates that the required studies had been com- 
pleted here. This was very gratifying to the friends of the High 
School, as it was an endorsement by one of the leading universities 
of the country, of the efficiency of the work done here, and this was 
more highly appreciated when it was learned that this same com- 
mittee had reported unfavorably vipon several of the larger High 
Schools of the State. Since this action was taken by the University 
of Michigan, graduates of the High School have been admitted upon 
certificate to Cornell, Wellesley, Vassar, University of Illinois, 
University of Chicago, and other colleges and universities. 

At the present time, with the exception of a certain amount of 
work in English, history and mathematics, the studies are elective. 
A two years' Business Course has recently been added. Also a course 
in manual training for which credit is given, the same as in other 
branches. There are excellent facilities for laboratory work in 
Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, and the instruction in many of the 
ijubjects is given by specialists, and the latest, best approved methods 
are used. 

The High School building completed in 1865 and located at the 
corner of Madison and Fourth streets, finally became too small for 
the educational demands of a growing city, and, besides, the location 
became unsuitable on account of adjacent streets being used by so 
manv railroads, and the proximity of manufacturing establishments. 

10 Springfield High School. 

It thus became necessary to erect a new building. The present 
beautiful and commodious structure, located between Washington 
and Adams streets, near Pasfield street, was completed in the fall of 
1897, and occupied for school purposes in October of the same year. 

This building, 200 feet long by 100 feet wide, with three stories 
above the basement, was erected at a cost of about $75,000, and has 
a capacity for 800 pupils. This is a very extensive and complete 
building to be secured for that amount of money, but the contract 
was let in 1896, Avhen building material could be secured at the lowest 
prices known for years. 

Four or five years ago the plan of semi-annual promotions was 
adopted in the lower grades of the grammar schools and has been 
gradually extended to the higher grades until it has now reached the 
second year of the High School. This plan provides for classes a 
half year apart, instead of a year, as formerly, and now pupils are 
promoted from the eighth grade of the ward schools to the High 
School twice a year. One of the advantages of this classification and 
promotion, is that pupils who, for any reason, are unable to advance 
with their classes, may be placed in a lower class without losing a 
year's time in completing the course. 

In Februarv, 1901, a class of seventv-five from the ward schools 
was admitted to the High School, and will complete the four years' 
course in the middle of the school year in 1905. Another class of 
about the same number was admitted in February of the present 
year, 1902, and, under this arrangement classes will be admitted 
regularly twice a year, in September and in February. 

Prior to 1882, it was the custom each year, just after the close 
of school in June, to require the eighth grade pupils of the ward 
schools, to go to the old High School building to take a written ex- 
amination upon all studies pursued by eighth grade pupils, for admis- 
sion to the High School. This was a momentous occasion. It was 
entered upon by many of them with fear and trembling, because their 
admission to the High School depended entirely upon the result of 
this examination. This examination had been in their minds from 
the day they had entered upon the work of the eighth grade, and they 
were not allowed to forget it. The greater part of the instruction 
of the teachers and the preparation of lessons by pupils, had this 
final examination in view. Pupils Avere required to write two days, 
then their papers were carefully marked, the percents of each pupil 
averaged and tabulated, and the names of the successful candidates 

Alumni xissociATioN. 11 

published in the daily papers. There were sometimes many failures, 
and, of course, as many sad hearts as there were pupils who failed. 

After 1883, for a number of years, these final examinations were 
held in the ward schools. Soon after 1890 the method of admission 
to the High School was changed, and since then the daily work of 
the pupils and the monthly written tests have been made mainly the 
basis of promotion. Those who make eighty-five percent, or above, 
in any study during the year, take no final examination in that study. 
A considerable number are passed to the High School upon this 
record. Those who fail to make eighty-five percent upon one or 
more studies are examined upon these studies, and their standing 
is made up from the term's work and this examination, each counting 
half. Under this method, the recommendation of the teacher has 
much to do with the promotion of pupils. 

Since the new High School was completed, in 1897, the attend- 
ance has increased very rapidly. Many families from the surround- 
ing country have moved to the city for the sole purpose of giving 
their children the advantages of the High School. Tuition amount- 
ing to nearly two thousand dollars is paid by non-resident pupils. 
The enrollment of the present year has reached 680, and there is a 
faculty of nineteen instructors. 

Considerable liberty is now allowed, pupils in the selection of 
studies fro]n the various courses of the High School. With the ex- 
ception of two years of mathematics, and a certain amount of English 
and history, the subjects are elective. The following are the courses 
as provided for at present: 

A Business Course of two years which includes bookkeeping, 
Commercial Geography, Commercial Law, Commercial Arithmetic, 
and English. 

An English Scientific Course which includes, in addition to the 
mathematics, history, and English of other courses, all of the 
sciences usually taught in a High School. 

A German-English Course which provides for four years of 

A Latin-English Course which provides for four years of Latin, 

A Classical Course which, in addition to the four years of Latin, 
provides for Greek. 

Vocal music, free hand and mechanical drawing, and manual 
training are taught by specialists. 

For every study completed, the pupil is given a certain number 
of credits. A study pursued through the entire year with five recita- 

12 Springfield High School. 

tions a week, has a value of four credits. A study that can be com- 
pleted in one-half year has two crcflits. Thirteen credits are required 
in the first year's work and seventeen for each of the next three years, 
making a total of sixty-four credits to be made in four years. It is 
possible for pupils to make more than the required number in a year. 
]\Ianual training, music, and drawing are given one or two credits 
each year, depending upon the number of recitations per week in 
the subject. 

The standard of vocal music has been raised very considerably 
above what it was a few years ago. This is due to the instruction 
given in this subject in all the grades of grammar schools, and in the 
High School by a special teacher of music. Fifteen years ago, very 
few boys could be fo\ind in the High School who were able to read 
music. Today nearly all of the boys and girls read music very 
readily, and now, with comparatively little effort, vocal music of a 
high order is rendered at High School entertainments. 

The following are the names and time of service of those who 
have filled the position of High School Principal since the organiza- 
tion of the school: Beaumont Parks, 1857, one year; Andrew M. 
Brooks, 1858, one year; George W. Tourtellot, 1859, one year; An- 
drew M. Brooks, 1860-1805; William Baker, 1865-1868; Benjamin 
C. Siicsserott, 1868-1869; Edwin P. Frost, 1869-1872; Andrew M. 
Brooks, 1872-1874; F. E. Feitshans, 1874-1883; J. H. Collins, 1883- 
1888; William Helmle, 1888-1899; L. M. Castle, 1899 to the present 
time, 1902. 

The following are the names of teachers who rendered most efficient 
service for a term of years : Misses Sophia Chapin, Jennie E. Chapin, 
Mary J. Howard, Emma F. Jones, !Maggie E. Muir, Mrs. P. A. 
Baird, Mrs. 'Mary Feitshans, Mr. E. E. Darrow, Misses Emily A. 
Hay ward, Mary A. Anderson, Mary H. Kuhl. Miss Emma F. Jones 
has the distinction of having been connected with this school longer 
than any other teacher. 

The first class Avas graduated from the High School in 1861, 
and had three members. The total number of graduates is 1232. The 
diplomas of 854 of these have been signed by Mr. J. H. Collins, as 
Principal of the High School, Hxe years, and Superintendent of 
Schools, fourteen years. 

Many of the prominent citizens of this city are graduates of this 
institution and many otlicrs living in various parts of the country 
received the benefits of its instruction. Nearly every one whose

name appears as an ahimnns, is a useful member of society. Very 
few have proven to be failures in life. 

The High School has been called the "People's College," and 
rightly so, because it is an institution whose benefits are conferred 
upon, and its privileges open to, the children of the poor and rich 
alike. Here all meet upon a common plane, and receive the same 
training which fits for citizenship and the duties of life. This school, 
on account of what it has been, as well as what it promises to be, is an 
institution in wliich the citizens of this city take a great interest 
and which they cheerfully support. May it continue to be the pride 
of all, by doing that work tliat will best fit for right living and useful
