His growing reputation in that area earned him the leading role in a major government study of educational inequality, ultimately published as Equality of Educational Opportunity ( 1966 ), but known more generally as the Coleman Report.

Timothy Gilbert & Co. of Boston and Nunns & Clark of New York licensed the rights to Coleman’s patent and applied the attachment to hundreds of their square pianos; the system was widely copied. Later American patents include that of Moses Colburn of Savannah, Georgia (1847), for a reed-organ attachment placed above the piano’s strings rather than below the bottom of the case as in Coleman’s design.
