About the School Register
The register, for a summer school class taught by Hannah C. Wood, is a small mine
of information and includes a record of attendance, a school register, general remarks
by the teacher, as well as directions to the teacher on how to complete the register.
It records how many “scholars” attended the class (48, one of them over 16 years of
age), which studies were pursued (reading, spelling, arithmetic, geography, grammar,
writing, and history), which books were used for this purpose, the methods of instruction
and discipline, how much a female teacher was paid per month, exclusive of board ($9.00),
how much was appropriated for wages for the school ($58.50), and the condition of
the schoolhouse (it had two blackboards and was “rather” pleasantly situated).
