Educational Work of the Knights of Columbus. Bulletin, 1923, No. 22
Sweany, Mark J.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The Knights of Columbus is primarily and essentially a fraternal society, but the order has never permitted itself to be circumscribed within the narrow limits of insurance benefits and selfish social interests. A new page of that history has been written. The story of the educational work in which the order engaged during the past four years is an interesting record of achievement. The purpose of this bulletin is to briefly present the outstanding features of the development of this educational program, together with certain facts and figures that will indicate its scope and purpose. The following contents are included: (1) Historical sketch; (2) Early educational work of the Knights of Columbus; (3) Educational work for former service men; (4) Evening schools; (5) College scholarships; (6) Correspondence courses; and (7) Conclusion. (Contains 2 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
