Reflections. Yesterday: Where Have We Been? Guidelines from Our Past.
Osborn, D. Keith
This presentation reviews the history of the Southern Association on Children under Six (40th, Richmond, VA, April present, and identifies emergent historical themes of the organization, its leadership, and its membership. SACUS began in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 27, 1948, when Polly McVickar called a meeting of 27 persons who were interested in the education and welfare of young children in the South. Early SACUS councils and conferences illustrated the organization's commitment to racial equality. Leadership and presenters at conferences were outstanding. These have remained constant. Themes emergent in SACUS's history emphasize the organization's commitment to the importance of: (1) children and high quality care; (2) training caregivers and establishing standards; (3) influencing public policy; and (4) multicultural education. It is suggested that these themes can serve as guides from the past and provide a springboard for the future. (RH)
