Druid Hills Elementary photographs, 1935-1936 (VIS 133)
The Druid Hills School opened in 1919 through Emory University as a school for faculty children, grades kindergarten to eleventh. In 1928, the school was moved to 1798 Hayward Drive, in Atlanta, and in 1959, this location began to house only grades eight through twelve. The elementary grades were moved to Fernbank Elementary. The photographs in this collection depict activities in Druid Hills Elementary School. The young children from Miss Comfort’s class at Druid Hills Elementary are shown learning in the classroom and outdoors, eating lunch in the cafeteria, and taking naps on the classroom floor. The photographs were taken by a photographer from Reeves Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Druid Hills Elementary photograph collection contains 8 black and white photographic prints, all of which are digitized and available on this database.
