LIBERAL JOURNALISM AND AMERICAN EDUCATION, 1914-1941.
WALLACE, JAMES M.
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TWO LIBERAL JOURNALS AND THE INSTITUTIONS AND PERSONNEL OF FORMAL EDUCATION WAS STUDIED. "THE NATION" AND "NEW REPUBLIC" WERE SELECTED AS BEING INFLUENTIALLY REPRESENTATIVE OF INTELLECTUAL AMERICAN LIBERALISM DURING THE 20TH CENTURY. STANDARD TECHNIQUES OF HISTORICAL RESEARCH WERE EMPLOYED. RELEVANT SOURCES IN POLITICAL, SOCIAL, INTELLECTUAL, EDUCATIONAL, AND JOURNALISTIC HISTORY WERE EXAMINED. EDITORIALS, ARTICLES, BOOK REVIEWS, AND LETTERS IN THE TWO JOURNALS FROM 1914 TO 1941 WERE READ AND ANALYZED. INTERVIEWS WITH SEVERAL OF THE EDITORS AND WRITERS WERE ALSO CONDUCTED. THE CONCLUSIONS INDICATED THAT (1) THE JOURNALS SERVED AS A COMMON MEETING GROUND FOR POLITICAL LIBERALS AND PROGRESSIVE EDUCATORS, (2) THE LIBERAL CONSENSUS NOTED ON EDUCATION SEEMED TO BE MORE FIRMLY GROUNDED THAN THAT IN MOST OTHER AREAS OF THOUGHT, AND (3) THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL IN THE JOURNALS HAD AN IMPACT AT LEAST ON THE THINKING OF CERTAIN ARTICULATE LIBERALS.
