Along with many other educational tools, A.S. Barnes & Co. offered school furniture manufactured by The National School Furniture Company. Why purchase their desk? It is ergonomic: “Conformation to the shape of the person, to prevent unhealthful growth and ungraceful attitudes.” It is convertible: “occupying as it does when folded, only nine inches of space.” It even will help students study by providing “facility of access to every scholar.”

Adopted by Ellen Gruber Garvey in honor of Transformations: The Journal of Inclusive Scholarship and Pedagogy
