Pioneers of Early Childhood Education: A Bio-Bibliographical Guide.
Peltzman, Barbara Ruth
Previous works on educators who built the field of early childhood education do not provide the researcher with primary and secondary sources or information on multicultural educators, nor do they discuss some of the more current leading educators. This reference book provides biographies and bibliographies of selected pre-modern and modern men and women who have made significant contributions to early childhood education. The biographies provide a personal perspective from which to view the primary sources. The biographies are arranged in alphabetical order followed by the primary sources arranged in chronological order. Secondary sources are listed alphabetically according to author and include obituaries, articles, dissertations, and books. Early childhood pioneers listed are: (1) Johann Amos Comenius; (2) John Dewey; (3) Ella Victoria Dobbs; (4) Abigail Adams Eliot; (5) Friedrich Wilhelm Froebel; (6) Arnold Lucius Gesell; (7) William Nicholas Hailmann; (8) Granville Stanley Hall; (9) William Torrey Harris and Susan E. Blow; (10) Elizabeth Harrison; (11) Patty Smith Hill; (12) Amy M. Hostler; (13) Leland B. Jacobs; (14) William Heard Kilpatrick; (15) Lucy Craft Laney; (16) John Locke; (17) Emma Jacobina Christiana Marwedel; (18) Margaret McMillan and Rachel McMillan; (19) Lucy Sprague Mitchell; (20) Maria Montessori; (21) Robert Owen; (22) Elizabeth Palmer Peabody; (23) Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi; (24) Jean Piaget; (25) Caroline Pratt; (26) Alice Harvey Whiting Putnam; (27) Jean-Jacques Rousseau; (28) Alice Temple; (29) Mary Church Terrell and The National Association of Colored Women; (30) Edward Lee Thorndike; (31) Evangeline H.
