BUSKEY, JOHN H.; HOULE, CYRIL O.
COMPLETED QUESTIONNAIRES SUBMITTED BY 480 HOLDERS OF AMERICAN ADULT EDUCATION DOCTORATES WERE ANALYZED, PRIMARILY BY KINDS OF WORK PERFORMED AND TYPES OF EMPLOYING INSTITUTIONS. TOTAL DOCTORATES AWARDED BY 30 INSTITUTIONS DURING 1935-65 WERE INDICATED, TOGETHER WITH TOTALS FOR SPECIFIC YEARS. DATA WERE OBTAINED ON (1) AGE DISTRIBUTION OF RECIPIENTS, BY 5-YEAR PERIODS, 1946-65, (2) AVERAGE AGE AT AWARD, BY 5-YEAR PERIODS, 1935-65, AND (3) AGES AT WHICH RESPONDENTS RECEIVED THEIR DOCTORATES. RESPONDENTS WERE LIVING IN 46 STATES AND TERRITORIES AND IN 21 FOREIGN COUNTRIES, NOTABLY CANADA, INDIA, AND AUSTRALIA. THE PH.D. WAS HELD BY 294 AND THE ED.D. BY 186. LESS THAN HALF WERE MEMBERS OF THE ADULT EDUCATION ASSOCIATION. THE AVERAGE AGE AT AWARD HAS RISEN FROM 38.6 TO OVER 41 YEARS. THE KINDS OF WORK PERFORMED BY HOLDERS OF THE DOCTORATE FROM THE FIVE MAIN AWARDING UNIVERSITIES (ADMINISTRATION, TEACHING, AND RESEARCH) AND THE ORGANIZATIONS THAT EMPLOY THEM (UNIVERSITIES, VOLUNTARY AGENCIES, GOVERNMENT, AND INDUSTRY) ARE TABULATED. A DIRECTORY OF DEGREE HOLDERS IS INCLUDED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "ADULT EDUCATION," VOLUME 16, NUMBER 3, SPRING 1966. (LY)
