On the Trail of Educational Philanthropist George Peabody (1795-1869): A Dialogue.
Parker, Betty J.; Parker, Franklin
This paper chronicles the life of George Peabody, intermingled with anecdotes on how the researchers gathered data in their studies. A brief overview of Peabody's life introduces the paper with a personal narrative of how the authors' search for details on his life began. Both researchers had affiliations with educational institutions resulting from the Peabody endowments. From this personal experience came the research on Peabody's life and philanthropy, using papers and materials written about the man and visits to places of significance in his life. (EH)
