Biographical Dictionary of American Educators. Volumes I, II, and III.
Ohles, John F., Ed.
The combined efforts of several hundred American educators to identify and report on 1,665 educators who have been major figures in the development of American education from colonial times to 1976 resulted in this biographical dictionary of American teachers, reformers, theorists, and administrators. The content of each biographical sketch is basically a short description of the subject's education, employment, contributions to education, and participation in profesional activities. References for further information are provided at the end of each entry followed by the contributor of the sketch. It is noted that not all publications, activities, or awards are listed for every individual in order to keep the sketches at a reasonable length. Appendices provide convenient divisions of the entries: place of birth, state of major service, field of work, and chronology of birth years. A fifth appendix provides a chronology of American education history. Abbreviations for frequently used references are provided as are an introduction and list of contributors. Entries within the three-volume set are arranged alphabetically. (LC)
