de Nemours, Du Pont  
National Education in The United States of America
Publisher: University of Delaware Press, 1923 Newark, DE.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "This scheme for national education, written at the request of Thomas Jefferson more than a hundred and twenty years ago and never translated until now, must be of interest to all students of the science of education, especially as some of the methods suggested by Du Pont de Nemours are now being tried with apparent success in the very excellent schools of the middle west. But this book is something more than the educational ideas of a learned Frenchman. It probably contains the theories of both Jefferson and Du Pont de Nemours modified to form one carefully detailed plan. It was written before Jefferson's election to the Presidency, when as vice-president he was living in Philadelphia and Du Pont de Nemours was in New York and they had frequent opportunities of meeting. They had been warm friends for more than fifteen years; they were both eager students of Greek and Latin and mathematics, - Du Pont was the better educated in scientific subjects, Jefferson in modern languages; both were thoughtful and honest patriots; each had seen the institutions of his country shaken to their foundations by the most important revolutions in history and each had played an important part in those revolutions. It was inevitable that two such men should try to formulate a plan to educate their country-men for their new opportunities.." xxv + 161 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition.

Kilpatrick, William Heard  
Publisher: Association Press, NY, 1940.
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition. 1. Hard Cover Publisher's full green cloth, gilt lettering on spine. 8vo. 219 pp. Former owner's bookplate on ffep, otherwise unmarked. Spine faded. Head of spine worn. Corners lightly bumped and worn. VERY GOOD. William Heard Kilpatrick (1871-1965) was an American pedagogue and a pupil, a colleague and a successor of John Dewey. Kilpatrick was born in White Plains, Georgia. He had an orthodox upbringing and was educated at Mercer University and Johns Hopkins University where he later became a mathematics teacher at High School and at Mercer University. He first met John Dewey in 1898 and again met him in 1907. Kilpatrick decided to make philosophy of education his specialty and occupied all courses by Dewey. From this developed a cooperation, which persisted up to Dewey's death in 1952. Both men's ideas directly impacted the 1932 founding of Bennington College in Vermont: they were both on the original College Board of Trustees, with Kilpatrick soon becoming President of the Board, and two of the original 12 houses on campus are named after them. His first teaching job was at Blakely Institute, a combined elementary and secondary public school in southwest Georgia, required that he attended a July 1892 summer at Rock College Normal School, Athens, GA. There he learned of the educational theories of German educator Friedrich Froebel, kindergarten founder and learning-through-play advocate. He again studied at Johns Hopkins University, summer 1895, then taught seventh grade at and was principal of Anderson Elementary School, Savannah, GA, 1896-97. He was at Mercer University, 1897-1906, taught mathematics, was vice-president, 1900, and acting president, 1904-06, but resigned when the trustees were concerned about his doubting the virgin birth. Kilpatrick spent the rest of his professional career and long life at TCCU. He received honorary LL.D. degrees from Mercer University, 1926; Columbia University, 1929; and Bennington College, 1938 (which he helped found in 1923 and where he was president of the board of trustees, 1931-38); the honorary D.H.L. degree from the College of Jewish Studies, 1952; and the Brandeis Award for humanitarian service, 1953. After retiring from TCCU, 1937, he was president of the New York Urban League, 1941-51; chairman of American Youth for World Youth, 1946-51; chairman of the Bureau of International Education, 1940-51; and on the board of directors of the League for Industrial Democracy. Kilpatrick had several critics but many more admirers and followers. Both heralded and criticized as John Dewey's chief educational interpreter, Kilpatrick was a leading advocate of progressive education. He died after a long illness at age 93 on February 13, 1965. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

Mark, H. Thiselton  
Individuality and the Moral Aim in American Education: The Gilchrist Report Presented to the Victoria University, March 1901
Publisher: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1901 London.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "The subject of the following inquiry was approved by the Victoria University and the Gilchrist Trustees, being regarded by them as cognate to some of the most urgent of the educational problems with which we are called to upon to deal. That the questions are essentially English in spirit hardly needs saying. One authority, who will be frequently quoted and whose name has long been held in high honour by English educationists, Dr. W. T. Harris, the United States Commissioner of Education, has said, referring to the moral aim in education, 'The English and American school is founded on the idea that moral education is more important than intellectual.' As to the principle of individuality, reviewing the last century, Professor C. H. Herford says, 'The nineteenth century has assailed, but has not seriously modified, the stubborn individualism of the English mind. On the contrary, it has seen the English mind persistently seeking philosophic or scientific justification for its own interests.' The report is in the main the result of written notes of conversations taken down as the talk was proceeding, and embodies a fairly representative series of answers to the questions, What is it that you personally are aiming at with regard to the children or the students in this school or college? and How are you seeking to accomplish it? In looking back the writer, who was too much immersed in the work itself to be fully conscious of it at the time, realises that it was a mental gymnastic of no mean difficulty to which he was soliciting te3achers, principals, and superintendents whom he came upon in the very thick and drive of their practical tasks.." xiii + 298 pages + listings of books of the publisher. Book is in GOOD condition; discoloration to cover; binding tight; text pages clean. No dust jacket.

Publisher: J. H. Miller Publisher, 1900 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall Probable first edition. "For the past fifteen years most of my time has been given to teaching in schools where I have had to deal with many boys form twelve to twenty years of age, boys in the adolescent period of life. The study of these boys has been full of interest to me; and while I have made no great discoveries, my faith in boys has increased an hundredfold and my respect and love for them has grown more and more..No greater blessing can come to a boy at this age when he does not understand himself than to have a good, strong teacher who understands him, in part, at least, and has faith in him for the unknown quantity, and is willing, day by day, patiently, firmly yet kindly, to lead him till he is able to walk alone. The following sketches are from my own experience, not one fictitious character among them. If they fail to reveal the spirit that should characterize school work, they are not worth the telling."

"In determining to give my own children the kind of education which I myself received, namely, a domestic one, I soon found the want, not merely of elementary books on particular subjects, such as I could employ with entire satisfaction, but also of any comprehensive system, specifically applicable to the peculiar circumstances of a home course of instruction. In a word, and will all the respect that is due to the many able and amiable writers who have favoured the world with their thoughts on the general subject of education, I have felt myself compelled, as well as to digest the principles of procedure in such a course, as to devise the methods proper for giving them effect.." 330 pages.
