Dedication of the Horace Mann School: Address by Mr. Spencer Trask, President of the Board of Trustees of Teachers College


by James E. Russell - 1902

The Trustees of Teachers College about ten years ago decided that what had been hitherto accomplished warranted the expectation of still greater work. They felt it was time to put aside the day of small things, and with large Hope and Faith, but with a lean bank account, they determined to move and build upon larger foundations. The manual training feature of the work in University Place had enlisted the enthusiastic interest of a number of young men whose circumstance of birth might naturally have led them to indulge in far different and more selfish pursuits. Some of these young men were members of our Board of Trustees. It was to one of these, Mr. George Vanderbilt, to whom we were indebted for the first gift of land, which made our determination to enlarge our borders first possible. It was the influence of another young Trustee, Mr. V. Everit Macy, that led his mother, Mrs. Josiah Macy, to offer to erect the Manual Training building, which enabled us to begin our new buildings on a much more extended scale than we had at first thought possible. Since then, what has been accomplished speaks for itself in solid stone. To-day we see almost the entire block covered with buildings directly connected with the work of the College. It is not the time nor place for me now to enlarge further upon the great progress that has been made in all other directions, nor to eulogize the various donors, who, as occasion arose, and needs were manifest, from time to time gave freely and generously. It is of this last gift we would speak to-day.
