*For the period 1931-1932 through 1941-1942, earned degrees in commerce and busi-
ness administration include degrees in arts and sciences with specialization in commerce
and degrees given by professional schools in commerce and business. Earned degrees in
engineering, education, and other professional fields were computed in the same manner.
Before 1955-1956, degrees listed under "Education" by the Office of Education include
the subclassifications: Education, Industrial Arts, and Physical Education. The figures
for the years before 1955-1956, given in Appendix 2, are for the subclassification Educa-
tion which does not include industrial arts and physical education. It is stated in a foot-
note in Earned Degrees Conferred by Higher Educational Institutions, 1954-1955, that
degrees in secondary education for students majoring in particular subjects such as
English, music, and commerce were distributed in that year and in previous years ac-
cording to the major field of specialization and were not counted as degrees in education.
