Sachs and Tisch Lectureships
Julius and Rosa Sachs Distinguished Lecturer
Lecture Series Background
Julius Sachs (1849-1934) was born in Baltimore, the son of a rabbi. His older brothers became investment experts, forming a Sachs investment firm. At the time of his marriage to Rosa Sachs, the firm merged with rival Goldman. Upon receiving his doctorate in Europe, he returned to New York to found the Sachs Collegiate Institute for Boys and Girls, which is today known as the Collegiate School. In 1902, Julius Sachs was invited by Dean Russell to join the faculty at Teachers College. His fields included the classics, philology, archeology, and art. Sachs was part of the Committee of Eight who, in 1909, wrote a new curriculum for teaching history which became a model for teaching social studies in the elementary grades.
Dr. and Mrs. Julius Sachs established the lecture series in 1924 with the purpose of making it possible to bring distinguished visiting lecturers to campus, chosen by the Dean, to deliver lectures "on some phase of education best suited to promotion of progress in secondary education."
