History of School of Education
Gill, Wanda Eileen; Kosub, Mariann
Online Submission
The history of the Bowie State University School of Education is traced from very humble beginnings in 1865 with its formation to provide teachers for Freedmen following the Civil War to a School of Education in a comprehensive university. Maryland Archives, student publications, college catalogues, legislative and other records were searched to provide an overview of the campus culture and leadership at various points in history. Selective fiscal records are reviewed to demonstrate the disparities across campuses in Maryland based on segregated models of the times. Student publications from the 1930s through the 1950s provide a real time account of the notable dignitaries that visited the campus, including Arna Bontemps, Langston Hughes and others. Student publications demonstrate the culture of the day, including activities at a Demonstration School of elementary aged students, 4-H Club and Handicraft Club activities, and student and faculty travel to conventions and meetings. The history demonstrates the growth of major fields of study and advanced course offerings that now include the doctoral degree in educational leadership. The document includes original photos of some of the earlier leaders and current photos of existing chairpersons and the Founding and Acting Deans. This historical records includes many primary documents and is of interest to academicians interested in views of history from historically Black college personnel, fiscal records, and accounts of Bowie State University in legislative records. (Contains 1 table, 1 chart, and 106 endnotes.)
