Description
The memorial recalls and extends the community's gratitude to seven Dutch school teachers characterized during its original 1909 dedicatory ceremonies as the “first teachers of the free public schools” in New York. The tablet contains the names of the teachers and NYU's emblem. And as it is sponsored by New York University and the Rev. Henry Mitchell MacCracken, D.D., LL.D, NYU’s then-chancellor, it is positioned on the NYU campus, i.e., on the side of one of its buildings, situated at the corner of Washington Square and Waverly Place. The work was developed at the time of and in association with the ceremonies to commemorate the Hudson-Fulton Celebration of 1909 – New York State’s combined 300th anniversary celebration of explorer Henry Hudson’s journey up the Hudson River and the 100th birthday of inventor and engineer Robert Fulton’s trip on the same river in his steamboat Clermont. The piece was dedicated September 28, 1909.
