Volkmann School (Boston, Massachusetts)
Founded around 1885 by Arthur L. K. Volkmann, the Volkmann School was a leading day school in its day in Boston and was attended by Thomas W. Sears, who, like most of its graduates, went on to Harvard. These images, some of which were likely taken by Sears, document the students and faculty between roughly 1895 and 1900 (Sears graduated from Harvard in the class of 1903). As a result of Volkmann's retirement the school combined with the Noble and Greenough School in 1917 and subsequently moved from Boston to Dedham in 1922.
Persons associated with the school include Arthur L. K. Volkmann (founder, ca. 1885-1917).
