About the Collection
The Ogontz Mosaic was the publication of the prominent elite and prestigious school known as The Ogontz School for Young Ladies. Usually published six times per year from 1884-1950, with occasional special issues, the Mosaic included articles about the school, its students, alumnae, and faculty. Issues included articles by the principals, including Abby Sutherland, the principal and owner of the school for many years. Also part of the Mosaics were articles, poetry, drawings and literary works created by the Ogontz students and information on faculty and student activities. Coverage of activities included plays, athletics, May Day and the required military drills. There are other articles on the Ogontz Camp in the White Mountains and various topics connected to the school.
The Mosaics also offer a glimpse of the life of an Ogontz girl once she left the school including engagements, weddings, bridal photos, photos of the graduates with their children, and other updates on their life beyond the Ogontz campus.
