William Nicholas Hailmann
Birth: Oct. 20, 1836
Glarus, Switzerland
Death: May 13, 1920
Pasadena
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Education Pioneer. He and his wife, Eudora Lucas Hailmann, introduced kindergarten to American school systems. He also served as superintendent of the Indian School Service in 1894, and fought to hire more Native American teachers to teach Indian children. Together with Theodore Roosevelt, then commissioner of Civil Service, he developed an exam which ensured applicants for teaching jobs on reservations were aware of the unique hardships of American Indians, thereby ensuring a surge in the employment of Native American teachers. (bio by: Bob on Gallows Hill)
