Able People Well Prepared: The Adult Education and the Mass Media Fellowship Programs--1952-61 of the Fund for Adult Education.
The Fund for Adult Education (FAE) was established by the Ford Foundation as an independent organization in 1951 and existed for a decade; its purpose was to support programs of liberal adult education which contribute to the development of wise and responsible citizens for a free society. In the first year, the Fund began a program of study and training awards and grants to individuals in the fields of adult education and mass communications. Recipients within these two parts of the Fund's Fellowship program were professionals, semi-professionals, or lay adult leaders from a variety of occupations such as labor, schools, clergy and government. This volume confines itself to the development and growth of these Fellowships. The Directors of the Fund placed high importance upon the Fellowship program, attested to by the appropriations of $1,968,000 and the way they took part in it through Board committees. These awards have done much to advance the idea and practice of continuing liberal education in the United States, as well as promote the concept of the field's being worthy of the best talents and preparation.
