Location of school and teacher association archives

Does anyone know where individual school historic records are kept? I'm looking for archives of Franklin K. Lane High School and Girls High School, both in Brooklyn, for the period 1908-1948.

I also would like to find any archives that exist for teachers associations, in particular the New York City Association of Teachers of English and the Brooklyn Teachers Association. Can you help?

Thank you!

Re: Location of school and teacher association archives

talto-The former NYC Bd. of Ed. is now the Dept. of education headquartered adjacent to City Hall in the Tweed Courthouse Bldg.. I would give them a call and ask for their Archives Dept..

Franklin K. Lane H.S. is still in existance in Brooklyn NY. You can call their administrative office as to the schools archives records.

They may also be able to advise what Teachers Association existed from 1908-1948.
Girls H.S. may no longer in exist. My past experience researching NYC Public Schools was not too succesful. Good luck. Going back this far is like asking questions about Dinosaurs!

You can call their administrative office and ask about the the schools archives. I believe Franklin K. Lane High School is still in existing.

I did have a chance as well to collect some archives on one of the oldest [url=http://www.troubledteens.com/boarding-schools.html]troubled teens boarding schools[/url] and I find it difficult. Hope you will succeed with yours.

Re: Location of school and teacher association archives

I work in a very old building (a K-8) thats been around for almost 200 years. Many of our older records are kept in our attic, but I'm also aware that uch of the data produced by schools must be shred to be disposed of, so if the school is savvy with a shredder, you may be out of luck.
