This volume is the result of personal observation and investigation. During the latter part of 1911 and the first part of 1912 the author traveled in almost all the countries of Latin America, studying the institutions of higher and special education. The author visited practically all the universities and a great many normal, commercial, industrial, and agricultural schools, with the ambition of observing at first-hand their organization, administration, curricula, methods, and physical equipment. In addition to interviews with administrative officers, instructors, and students, the author gathered all the printed matter available, such as official reports, curricula, laws, and statutes of the institutions, historical notes, university and student publications, and statistical memoranda. Even for institutions not visited the author has had access in most cases to original official reports. It would therefore be useless to append a detailed bibliography, since it could only be an enumeration of university annuals and similar publications. The present treatise lays no claim to completeness. It is a general survey of the whole wide subject of higher and special education in Latin America, and is given to the public in the hope of conveying a comprehensive idea of Latin-American educational institutions and of provoking more detailed studies in an interesting field. An index is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 71 plates.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
