Cleveland School of Art photograph
Description: This is a photograph of the Cleveland School of Art taken circa 1923-1924. It measures 5.5" x 3.5" (12.7 x 8.89 cm). In 1891 the Cleveland School of Art was chartered as a private, independent art school. By 1906, the Cleveland School of Art had established a department of teacher training, and, in 1911, Western Reserve University's College for Women and the Cleveland School of Art offered their first joint degree. The Cleveland Board of Education established a cooperative program with the University in 1920 to supply teacher training. The collaborative arrangement with the School of Art (soon to be renamed the Cleveland Institute of Art) continued to mature, and, by the mid 1940s, the two institutions were collaborating on a number of educator-training degree options. By the 1970s, a joint CWRU/CIA master's degree program had been added, as had various specific teacher-certification programs. The CWRU/CIA program had become the region's premier training ground for elementary and secondary art teachers. The photographs were taken by Ihna Thayer Frary. The Ihna Thayer Frary Audiovisual Collection was given to the Ohio Historical Society by Mr. Frary in two sections. One was in March of 1963 and the remainder in May of 1965 by his sons, Dr. Spencer G. and Allen T. Frary following their father's death. I.T. Frary (1873-1965) was the publicity and membership secretary for the Museum of Art in Cleveland, Ohio. He taught for many years at the Cleveland Institute of Art and Western Reserve University's School of Architecture. He did much research of Ohio and American architecture and was the author of seven major works and numerous scholarly articles on architectural and art history. One of his major works was Early Homes of Ohio published in 1936. View on Ohio Memory.
