Notes for JOHN MCDONOGH: McDonogh School, founded
in 1873 with a legacy from John McDonogh, a Baltimore merchant and philanthropist, is a
challenging school that strives to help students become responsible and concerned
citizens. While preparing students for academic work in college, the School seeks to
develop moral character, a sense of responsibility, and a capacity for leadership. The
extracurricular program is important in promoting character development. Although the
School is nondenominational, instruction is offered in comparative religion and the
history and philosophy of religion at all grade levels.
The unveiling of the McDonogh Monument in
Lafayette Square, December 28, 1898. In more recent times, the monument and the man it
honors, John McDonogh, benefactor of New Orleans' public schools, have encountered
controversy--first in the late 1950s, when the segregated McDonogh Day ceremonies were
boycotted by African American students, and, in the late 1980s and 1990s, when many of the
schools removed the name of McDonogh, a slave holder, from above their doors. The statue
still stands in Lafayette Square, but McDonogh's legacy to the city's children has been
given a second, more critical examination. [Louisiana Photograph Collection. Louisiana
