New Trier High School

New Trier High School is a public four-year high school, with its main campus for sophomores through seniors located in Winnetka, United States, a freshman campus in Northfield, with freshman classes and district administration. Founded in 1901, the school serves the Chicago suburbs of Wilmette, Winnetka and Northfield as well as portions of Northbrook and unincorporated Cook County. New Trier's logo depicts a symbol of Trier, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany; the athletic teams are known as an archaic demonym for the people of Trier. New Trier High School opened its doors for the first time on February 4, 1901, welcoming 76 students. In 1912, it became one of the first American high schools with an indoor swimming pool. In 1920, the inaugural edition of The New Trier News was published. In 1934, the track and field team won the school's first IHSA state championship. In 1965, the New Trier West Campus was opened in the village of Northfield. In the 1950s, New Trier became the first American high school with an educational, non-commercial FM broadcast license for a radiated station.

By 1970 New Trier was home to the nation's first public high school-based CCTV instructional station, ITV, which broadcast educational programming to township elementary schools via microwave signals. Students operated WNTH under a faculty advisor, ITV was operated by students under professional television technical and programming staff. By 1962, student enrollment was more than 4,000; some 20 "temporary" trailer classrooms lined the rear of the building, designed for 3,000. To accommodate the growing baby boomer student body, voters approved a referendum for New Trier to purchase forty-six acres of land in Northfield. Chicago architecture firm Perkins and Will was selected to design a campus of curricular buildings clustered around a central library and administration building; the resulting modernist design was noted in secondary education architecture literature and practice, emulated by Winnetka's Carleton Washburne junior high school several years later. "New Trier West" opened to freshmen and sophomores in 1965.

What had been "New Trier," at 385 Winnetka Avenue in Winnetka, became "New Trier East." In 1967, New Trier West was dedicated as a separate four-year high school. U. S. Secretary of Health and Welfare John Gardner keynoted the dedication, attended by U. S. Senator Charles Percy, Congressman Donald Rumsfeld. Enrollment reached an all-time peak of 6,558 students in 1972. By 1981, enrollment had dropped significantly; as a result, the school board decided to combine the East and West schools and convert New Trier West into the freshman-only campus. The division of freshmen from upperclassmen lasted from September 1981 until June 1985. By enrollment had declined enough for the board to bring all students under one roof, close the former New Trier West, convert the Northfield campus into a community recreation space; the campus housed a senior center, corporate dormitories, a public swimming pool, an alternative high school program known as West Center Academy. The 1987-88 New Trier School Board proposed selling the New Trier West Campus in Northfield to facilitate a $10–12 million renovation project at the East Campus.

Their decision to sell the property was based on a demographers report and a reluctance to raise property taxes to cover the NT East revamp. The demographer, expressed caution about relying on predictions that exceeded a 10-year span stating in part that "...after 10 years, greater risk emerges of unanticipated events invalidating the most scientifically-based projection methods." Concerned about another spike in population and the need to retain the 42.5 acre Campus for future generations, local citizen advocates formed "The Coalition for the Future of New Trier". In March 1988 the Coalition forced the issue to referendum which, backed by broad community support, resulted in a successful ratification of the Coalition's position; the Campus was retained and subsequently rented to various entities until it was again needed as additional space for a growing NT student population. According to research it took less than two decades for the combined New Trier enrollment to exceed 4,000 students.

The Coalition has never been acknowledged publicly for their significant role as a catalyst in retaining the 42.5-acre New Trier West Campus. New Trier was featured in the December 9, 1996, issue of Time in an article entitled "High Times at New Trier High." Among other claims, the article stated that "New Trier kids who smoke pot" were "by all accounts more than three-fifths of the student body," compared with national averages at the time closer to 33%. However, on the school's WNTH's radio program, the writer acknowledged that the "three-fifths" claim had been inadvertently rewritten during the editing process in such a way that seemed to imply that more than 60% of New Trier students may be regular users of marijuana, whereas that figure should have been labeled as the portion of students who had used marijuana, including many who had used it only once or twiceIn 2017, the school neared completion of a $104.9 million renovation and addition project at its East Campus, which replaced three aging buildings on the west side of the campus with the addition of a new student cafeteria, a new library, more than two dozen classrooms for core English, social studies and business program clas

Aperture (magazine)

Aperture magazine, based in New York City, is an international quarterly journal specializing in photography. Founded in 1952, Aperture magazine is the flagship publication of Aperture Foundation; the headquarters of Aperture magazine and the Aperture Foundation and Gallery are at 547 West 27th Street, 4th floor, New York, NY 10001. Aperture is published four times a year, in Spring, Summer and Winter, it features photographs by established and emerging photographers, as well as artists experimenting with photo-related media. Each issue is themed and includes writings by critics, photography practitioners, others involved in the field of photography; the magazine was founded in 1952 by a consortium of photographers and proponents of photography: Ansel Adams, Melton Ferris, Dorothea Lange, Ernest Louie, Barbara Morgan, Beaumont Newhall, Nancy Newhall, Dody Warren, Minor White. It was the first journal since Alfred Stieglitz’s Camera Work to explore photography as a fine art; the journal’s mission, as stated in its inaugural issue: Aperture has been originated to communicate with serious photographers and creative people everywhere, whether professional, amateur or student...

Aperture is intended to be a mature journal in which photographers can talk straight to each other, discuss the problems that face photography as profession and art, share their experiences, comment on what goes on, descry the new potentials. We, who have founded this journal, invite others to use Aperture as a common ground for the advancement of photography. Minor White was appointed by the founders to be the editor of the magazine, at first published out of San Francisco; the magazine's dimensions were modest, in its first two decades the photographs discussed and published in its pages were black and white. Many early issues were monographic publications. In 1953 the editorial offices moved to New York. White was assisted with the magazine's editorial and production tasks by Peter C. Bunnell. From the outset, the magazine was appreciated by its readers as “a much needed forum for serious photographers.” In 1962, vol. 10, no. 4, a monograph on photographer Frederick Sommer, was the first of many issues to be published as a trade book.

Aperture, Inc. became a nonprofit foundation in 1963. In 1964 Michael E. Hoffman, a former student of White, became the foundation's publisher and executive director. In 1965 Aperture launched a full-fledged book-publishing program that evolved in tandem with the magazine over the following decades. Beginning in the mid-1960s, the magazine's production was overseen by Stevan A. Baron. In 1966 Aperture's production department was moved to New York City; the magazine faced perpetual financial challenges in this period. In 1975 Helen Levitt’s photographs of New York City were published as the first full-color portfolio in the magazine; this era included monographic issues on the work of Edward S. Curtis. On June 24, 1976, Minor White died of a heart attack after a prolonged illness. In the same year, with issue 77, the magazine moved to a new numbering system and its format was enlarged to 11⅜ by 9 9/16 inches. In 1979, with issue 82, a new design by Malcolm Grear was unveiled. Under Michael Hoffman, Aperture was developed by editors including Carole Kismaric, Steve Dietz, Lawrence Frascella, Mark Holborn, Nan Richardson, while Hoffman always played an integral part in each issue’s conception.

Hoffman's life partner of 20 years, Diane Lyon, AKA Diane Hoffman, provided assistance. Chief among a group of designers for the magazine in this period was Wendy Byrne. In 1984 Aperture’s headquarters moved to a five-story brownstone at 20 East 23rd Street in New York. Burden; the 23rd Street building was Aperture’s home until 2005. Issues of Aperture during this period were still organized around thematic concepts, such as “Swimmers”. Most issues were edited by members of Aper
