Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note

The Carson Valley School in Flourtown, Pennsylvania, was established in 1907, by Robert Carson. Founded as a school for indigent white girls, it offered individualized instruction in English, music, and the arts. Elsa Euland, who directed the school from 1917 to 1960, introduced a program that included academic, social, and vocational training. In 1947, admissions expanded to include brothers of residents, and in 1965, it began to accept students regardless of race or gender.
