Submitted by Ron Darrah

Source: Manual of the Public Schools of the city of Indianapolis [...] 1889-90 (Indianapolis: Sentinel Printing Co., 1889). This book is in the collection of the Genealogical Society of Marion County's Library (9370 E. Washington St., Indianapolis IN). The GSMC has an extensive collection of IPS staff directories; IPS itself has a more complete set of directories.

This database includes the name of the employee, their position/subjects, and home address. It includes the janitors of each building, as well as employees of the Indianapolis Public Library, which at the time was a department of the school district. Note the strong German componenent in the district; it was a mandatory language in the city schools at that time.

This is a scanned file. It is in PDF format and requires the free Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to open it.
