Henry C. Frick Teacher Alumnae Fund
Also included within the Frick Fund is the Henry C. Frick Teacher Alumnae Fund. The Henry Clay Frick Training School for Teachers was unique not only in Pittsburgh, but in the entire United States. Originally named The Pittsburgh Teachers Training School, it trained teachers to serve the children of Pittsburgh. The school was part of the Pittsburgh Public School System from 1912 until 1941. The Alumnae Association of the Frick Training School was founded in 1919. Originally an informal group, it later became organized with elected officers and a set of by-laws.
Through the Alumnae Association, graduates of the Frick School gave back in full measure the cost of their own education through their service and devotion to the children of Pittsburgh. The Frick Teacher Alumnae Fund began its association with the Buhl Foundation with $11,974 in 1994. Due to market appreciation and the generosity of loyal Frick Teacher Alumnae, the Alumnae Fund has benefited over the years with additional gifts including a testamentary request by Frieda Yetter in the amount of approximately $450,000.
