First graduating class of Antioch College
Description: Reproduction of a group portrait of the first graduating class of Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, ca. 1855-1860. The Christian Church founded Antioch College in 1852. The college admitted its first students (both male and female) the following year. Antioch's first president was Horace Mann, a nationally-known expert on education in the nineteenth century. Although the Christian Church was instrumental in the college's start, Antioch soon became known for providing a nonsectarian education. View on Ohio Memory.
