Celebrating the History of Kellogg School

The Kate Starr Kellogg Elementary School Local School Council (LSC) is celebrating the history of the school and of the woman it was named for with an exhibit and public event co-sponsored by the Ridge Historical Society (RHS) at its headquarters, 10621 S. Seeley. The opening reception is Sat., May 20, 6 to 8 p.m.

Kate Starr Kellogg, born in 1854, was a prominent Chicago educator, as teacher and principal of Lewis-Champlin High School in Englewood, and a District Superintendent in the Chicago Public Schools. She was a suffragette and leader in the campaign for education reform and many other social and community causes in the early 20th Century. Miss Kellogg lived much of her life on the family farm in Evergreen Park, which was bounded by present-day California Avenue, 95th and 91st Streets, and the B&O CT Railroad tracks. Parts of the property are now the Little Company of Mary Hospital parking lot and Evergreen Golf Course.

Among the first local settlers, the Kellogg family was prominent in the early social life of the area. Exhibits are being prepared by the Kellogg LSC and RHS, as well as by Kellogg students, and will consist of items such as old school yearbooks and school class photographs, as well as a compilation of turn of the century newspaper articles chronicling the life of Miss Kellogg. The Society and the LSC invite people who have stories of the school or photographs, yearbooks, scrapbooks and other memorabilia about the school or Kellogg family, to loan them to the exhibit.
