English as an Engineering Tool: Samuel Chandler Earle and the Tufts Experiment.
Kynell, Teresa
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v25 n1 p85-92 1995
Evaluates Samuel Chandler Earle's 1911 presentation to the Society for the Promotion of Engineering Education. Demonstrates Earle's role in the shift of technical writing courses that combined both the goals of an engineering curriculum with the real-world needs of the graduated engineer. Finds that Earle's "Tufts Experiment" provided the impetus for discussion among engineering and English educators. (PA)
