Excerpt

The investigation reported on in this volume was inspired by Marshall S. Brown, Dean of the Faculties of New York University and, at the time of its inception, a member of the Commission on the Enlistment and Training of College Teachers appointed January 1, 1927, by the Association of American Colleges.

Anna Y. Reed, Educational Director for the National Personnel Service and Chairman of the Department of Personnel Administration, School of Education, New York University, has directed the investigation and written the final report. Frank P. Maguire, Dean of Men, State Teachers College, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, prepared the first schedule and collected the information on the topics included therein. William A. Thomson, Research Assistant for the National Personnel Service and Instructor in Psychology, New York University, prepared the second schedule. He has shared with Harriett van der Vate, also Research Assistant for the National Personnel Service, supervision of the clerical and statistical work involved. Both have assisted in the interpretation and organization of the material and in the editorial work.

Subsidies for the conduct of the study have been received from the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the National Personnel Service, Inc.

The Secretary and the Associate Secretary of the Association of American Colleges have been more than generous in advice and suggestions. Albert Britt, President of Knox College, Chairman of the Commission on Enlistment and Training of College Teachers, Association of American Colleges, Homer L. Dodge of the University of Oklahoma, Field Director for the Committee on College and University Teaching, American Association of University Professors, and a number of personal friends, who were unofficially interested in the project, have made valuable suggestions which materially improved the final set-up of the schedules or the interpretation and presentation of results.

The final manuscript has been read in whole or in part by the following: Dr. Robert L. Kelly, Secretary of the Association of American Colleges, President Albert Britt of Knox College, Dr. Frank E. Spaulding of Yale University, Dr. Albert B. Meredith of New York University, Dr. Morris Krugman, Chief Psychologist, Bureau of Child Guidance, New York City, Mrs. Howard W. Vernon, National Personnel Service, Dr. Don H. Taylor, Director of Industrial Relations, Employing Printers Association, New York City, Dean Paul Klapper of the College of the City of New York, and Dr. W. S. Learned of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
