Title:
Mounted checks issued by the Carnegie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching
Abstract:
In April 1905, Andrew Carnegie announced the creation of the Carnegie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching (CFAT), a $10,000,000 pension fund for teachers in institutions of higher education (with additional five million dollars added in 1908 to provide pensions for teachers in state colleges). These mounted checks were issued to the Foundation's own executives: H. S. Pritchett, the CFAT president and Charles W. Eliot, the Harvard University President and the first CFAT Board Chairman. The third check is for William T. Harris, the United States Commissioner of Education from 1889 to 1906, and one of the 30 founding members of the Simplified Spelling Board.
