Student map

Student mapHarriet Goodhue (1799-1874) was about fifteen years old when she drew this world map, circa 1817, for her course in cartography at Deerfield Academy, “The world agreeable to the latest discoveries.” A map like this was frequently a final requirement that signaled a student’s successful completion of the course. Memorial Hall Museum’s ever popular first floor classroom features this sample of student work along with schoolgirl art, artifacts from Deerfield Academy’s natural history collection, copy books, writing tools and a set of desks from a one-room schoolhouse in nearby Conway, Massachusetts.
