The National Art Education Association: Our History--Celebrating 50 Years, 1947-1997.
Michael, John A., Ed.
It is important to maintain a history and archival record of the art education professional associations, state and national. Those who have gone before should be honored, since they struggled to build the National Art Education Association into the largest association of its kind in the world. And a history of its professional development, and in a way of art education itself, helps prepare for the challenges of the future. Following an introduction by the editor, chapters are: (1) "The Emergence of the Regionals and the NEA Art Departments: The National Art Education Association Is Born" (John A. Michael); (2) "The Development of the NAEA Constitution" (Ivan E. Johnson); (3) "A National Association: Our Growth, Organizational Development, and Special Projects" (Charles M. Dorn); (4) "Membership and Affiliate Groups" (Charles A. Qualley); (5) "Professional Conferences for Art Educators: A Pilgrimage to Excellence" (Susan M. Shoaff-Ballanger; Jack Davis); (6) "Ideas with Philosophic Impact of Art Education from the 1930s to 1997" (Marylou Kuhn); (7) "People of Color, Their Changing Role in the NAEA" (Eugene Grigsby, Jr.); and (8) "NAEA Recognition Awards" (John A. Michael). Appended are additional information resources. (BT)
