The Early Childhood Song Books of Eleanor Smith: Their Affinity with the Philosophy of Friedrich Froebel.
Alper, Clifford D.
Journal of Research in Music Education, v28 n2 p111-18 Sum 1980
Eleanor Smith (1858-1942), an outstanding composer of children's songs, was perhaps the most significant musician to embrace the philosophy of Friedrich Froebel (1782-1852), who founded the kindergarten in 1837 and consistently acknowledged and dignified children's natural capabilities and interests. Smith's songs still appear in published song books. (Author/KC)
