Mock, David B.
This volume contains transcripts of four oral history interviews that were conducted during a study of the history of vocational education in Florida. The first interview is with Maxwell Samuel Thomas, a vocational educator who began his career in 1932 and has since served as a vocational education teacher and administrator, participated in numerous professional and civic organizations, and been active in projects involving and serving the black community. The second interview is with James A. Davis, a vocational educator and administrator who began teaching industrial arts in 1958 and currently heads the Bureau of Planning and Budgeting of the Florida Division of Vocational Education. The third person interviewed is William Cecil Golden, a former teacher, coach, and principal who has been actively involved in developing and drafting numerous education bills since joining the Florida State Department of Education in 1955. The fourth interview involves four persons: Martinez Baker, owner of an electrical company between 1947 and 1969 and current director of the physical plant at Florida Junior College in Jacksonville; Dorothy Brown Love, a business education teacher since 1931 and former president of the Duval County Business Education Council; Anne Hamilton Franz, county supervisor of a cooperative education program in the 1930s; and Elmore John Saare, retired vocational teacher and administrator of both secondary and postsecondary programs.
