El Rito, N.M. 1924. Panoramic photograph, 28 3/4 x 8 inches. Faint crease at one corner. Near fine. This panoramic photograph shows the students, teachers, and staff of the Spanish-American Normal School at El Rito, New Mexico, fifteen years after the school was established to teach native Spanish speakers to become English-language teachers. Founded in 1909 in a remote part of northern New Mexico, the Spanish-American Normal School (now Northern New Mexico College) was charged with training Latino teachers to work with the territory's Spanish-speaking population, educating them and teaching them English. Supported by the territorial legislature, it was hoped that such concrete steps to Anglicize the Spanish-speaking population would help ease the way to statehood. In its first decade the school trained some one hundred teachers, and over time it grew and became a boarding school providing education up through the post-secondary level. This image shows scores of young students - mostly Latino boys and girls - as well as teachers and administrators posed before Delgado Hall on campus. The students span the years from early elementary school to college age, and faculty and staff appear to be made up of whites and Latinos (likely graduates of the school themselves). Fine visual evidence of a pioneering multicultural school in early twentieth century New Mexico. N° de ref. de la librería 1612
