The Historical Role of Arizona's Superintendent of Public Instruction, Volumes 1 and 2.
Bury, John C.
This book is a study of the historical development of public education in the Territory and State of Arizona, as reflected and influenced by the office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. The book is organized in 20 chronologically ordered chapters, mainly centered around various individuals who had some significant impact on the course of public education in Arizona. In the first six chapters, much attention is devoted to the activities of the various territorial governors and legislative assemblies as they affected education between 1854 and 1883. Chapters 7 through 20 mainly focus on one or more of the 24 superintendents of public instruction between 1883 and 1975. The author relies entirely on the historical narrative technique in discussing the history of the superintendency until 1958, but he mainly uses oral history interviews to portray the period from 1958 to 1975. Material for the study was gleaned from a variety of libraries and archives in Arizona and from personal interviews with living ex-superintendents and their associates. (JG)
