Floyd Family Collection

Faculty Collection

The Floyd Family Collection consists of public school textbooks published or used in Indiana from 1840 to about 1940. Related materials, such as publisher’s catalogs, teachers’ editions, and books used to supplement literature courses are also included. Through the study of the texts published during this 100-year focus period, researchers may learn not only about what was taught or how it was taught, but also find the means to study moral and ethical subtexts.

The collection was established by William Floyd, a retired school superintendent from West Lafayette, Indiana, and his wife, Cletis, who also worked in education.
