Electa Quinney School - Drawing by Thomas McGinnis

Ink sketch of Wisconsin public school, opened in 1828 in Kaukauna -- as imagined by the artist. This school was started by Electa Quinney, Wisconsin's first public school teacher. She was a Stockbridge-Munsee Indian woman who was professionally trained to be a teacher, and she taught Native American and white students at her school. In the foreground is the oldest white ash tree in the state of Wisconsin.
