Eastman College-Very Rare School Bank Check with Revenue Stamp 1883 #1024
Part of our very large archive/collection of Eastman 19th century items. The business school (Eastman as in Eastman-Kodak!) was a national leader from before the Civil War through the 1800s and beyond. Perhaps it was even more well-known becaue not only did it provided very comprehensive and diversified courses for students, but it was far ahead of its time with the broad and creative "hands-on" curriculum. I have not read if the school was men-only but in at least one photo we have in a listing, a packed auditorium with perhaps 200+ students seems to be 100% men.
