Biographical Note: In 1909 the General Assembly of Tennessee passed the General Education Bill which provided for the establishment of three schools for the education of teachers, one in each of the grand divisions of the state. Each of these normal schools was to have a “practice school” where teaching students could observe and practice. The Middle Tennessee State Normal School opened in 1911. The practice school for MTSNS was housed in various existing buildings until 1929 when it moved to a newly constructed building designed by Marr and Holman at 923 East Lytle Street.

This school is operated jointly by the Rutherford County school system and Middle Tennessee State University. The school, named the Homer Pittard Campus School in 1985, continues to operate today.

Scope and Content: The papers are organized into eight series.

Series 1: Scrapbooks, 1943-1997. These scrapbooks span the years 1943 to 1997 and include photos, newspaper clippings, and other materials. Many of the scrapbooks are for a particular academic year, but some of them are for particular events or groups.

Series 3: Parent Teacher Organizations, 1938, 1941-2, 1956. Includes programs from the Tennessee Congress of Parents and Teachers, Homer Pittard Campus School PTA, and the Rutherford County PTA.
