The Peabody Education Fund had an important impact on education in Florida, particularly during the post-Civil War years from 1869 to 1876. Through its emphasis on elementary education, its assistance to urban schools, and its support of segregated schooling, the Peabody Fund helped determine future patterns of education in the state.
