Four Dallas Schools of Expression, 1908 through 1930.
Baker, Judy Ann
Previous studies of elocution and expression in America established the cultural significance of oral reading activities in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. There is an abundance of information available from private oral expression schools established by four prominent Dallas teachers: Mrs. A. A. Cocke, Mrs. Pearl Wallace Chappell, Mrs. O. D. Woodrow, and Mrs. C. C. Latimer. This provides an opportunity of inestimable value for adding a small segment to the history of America's oral tradition. Acquisition of material included interviewing former students of expression, perusing their scripbooks, programs of recitals, notes, and textbooks, and examining the Dallas "Morning News" for publicity and critiques of expression activities.
