A generous donation from Peggy Denlinger (Pancratz) of Zwingle, Iowa, has expanded CHRIEC's History of Education Collections to include records from Dubuque and Jackson Counties. Ranging in date from c.1895-1989, the Collection connects the educational history of three families: Denlinger, Pancratz, and Wirtz.
A wide variety of records compose the collection. Student and teacher records, photographs, and newspaper articles trace the history of the following schools in Jackson County: Butler Township - Garryowen High School; Maquoketa and South Fork Townships - Maquoketa Public Schools; Otter Creek Township - St. Lawrence and Zwingle; and Prairie Springs Township - Holy Rosary High School and Salem School. Records from Dubuque County originated at: Dubuque Public Schools and Washington Township - #1 Franklin and #2 Biggins, and West St. Joseph’s.
