BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL NOTE

The New Orleans Free Kindergarten Association was founded in 1897 and was affiliated with the Federation of Non-Sectarian Charity and Philanthropy of New Orleans. Member organizations included the Sophie C. Hart Free Kindergarten, the Michel Heymann Free Kindergarten, and the Jurgens Free Kindergarten.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The collection contains correspondence, bylaws, minutes, treasurer's reports, and a roll book which pertains to the membership, financing, and work of the New Orleans Free Kindergarten Association. Correspondence consists of letters discussing association matters such as nominations, elections, and resignations within the Board of Directors, issues discussed at meetings, amendments of bylaws (1910), and other business matters such as dues, financial donations, and resolutions. Also discussed in some letters is the representation of the New Orleans Free Kindergarten Association at meetings of the Federation of Non-Sectarian Charities and Philanthropies (1913-1914). One letter from the Federation to Frank Hart notes the financial crisis of the Federation and requests an immediate meeting to discuss the situation (July 1, 1914). Major correspondents include Clarence F. Low, Mrs. Emile Godchaux, Frank Hart, Julia Anderson, Mrs. Walmsley, and Sophie B. Wright.

Bylaws of the New Orleans Free Kindergarten Association (undated) are included, as well as minutes of meetings and other information regarding meetings of the N.O.F.K.A. (December 1909-December 1913). Reports are comprised of financial reports from selected months of expenditures and credits of N.O.F.K.A. (January 1912-December 1913). Also included are reports of Kindergarten teachers at Sophie C. Hart Free Kindergarten (1912-1914), Michel Heymann Free Kindergarten (1911-1913), and Jurgens Free Kindergarten (1911-1913), all under N.O.F.K.A. care, containing the names of children on roll, average daily attendance, visits to children's homes, and some information regarding events and meetings.

Two pamphlets are found in the collection: one containing information concerning the Brooklyn Free Kindergarten Society including a constitution, bylaws, and the mission of the organization (1906), and another describing the curriculum of the kindergarten training school of the Grand Rapids Kindergarten Association and Training School (1910). Also included is a roll book of members of the N.O.F.K.A. (undated)
