Creating Women's Work in the Academy and beyond: Carnegie Connections, 1923-1942
Collins, Jenny
History of Education, v38 n6 p791-808 Nov 2009
This paper examines the significance of the Dominion and Colonies Fund under the presidency of Frederick Paul Keppel and details ways in which the Carnegie Corporation worked to internationalize American educational theories and practices. It challenges previous scholarship claims that grants made were largely extensions of the Corporation's domestic grants within the United States and that attribute the spread of progressive models of "new education" to "key men". It considers the significance of the "key women" who served as international Carnegie contacts including Ann Gilchrist Strong, Professor of Home Science at the University of Otago, who utilized professional networks to establish herself as a conduit into universities, government policymaking, and Carnegie grant and travel programmes. Utilising a New Zealand case study, the paper then illustrates the way that Carnegie philanthropy helped to expand the work of women as domestic experts and professional social reformers within the academy and beyond.
