Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio, Collection
Description: Color illustration of the historic Antioch Hall at Antioch College, taken from "Gleason's Pictorial Drawing-Room Companion," ca. 1852-1854. Antioch College was founded in Yellow Springs, Ohio, by the Christian Church in 1852. 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, and was one of the first co-educational institutions of higher education.
