Dedication of The Horace Mann School For Boys (Illustrated)

by James E. Russell - 1915

The new Horace Mann School for Boys, on the property of the College at West 246th Street, was completed in time for the opening of the Fall term, and on the afternoon of Tuesday, November 17, was formally dedicated in the presence, of a large number of alumni, patrons, and friends. The building, which is of stone, and completely fireproof, has three stories and a basement, with a one story and basement gymnasium adjoining. The basement of the main building contains the industrial arts room, the heating plant, the lockers, showers, and lavatories, an editorial room for the school paper, and a teachers' room. A door leads into the basement of the gymnasium, arranged with kitchen, pantries, and steam-tables for the service of a hot table d'hote lunch on the cafeteria plan. On the first floor are the principal's offices, the main study hall, and recitation rooms; on the second floor, recitation rooms; on the third, art and music rooms, lecture room, library, and fully equipped physical and chemical laboratories. The flat tiled roof, covered with glass and protected against the weather by side screens, has an area of about 7,500 square feet available for playground, with seven handball courts. The headmaster's home stands immediately to the east of the main building. Adjoining are the playgrounds of over ten acres, with ample provision for all outdoor games.
