General Education in the Social Studies

Excerpt

The cooperative study in General Education was in existence for five years, more than three of which coincided with the war emergency. It was inevitable, therefore, that there should have been a considerable turnover both in the faculties of the cooperating colleges and in the central staff. Despite changes in personnel it was possible to maintain a certain continuity and consistency of program. It is important to acknowledge here the services of the various individuals who have participated in the projects outlined in this report. Thanks must first of all be tendered to the members of the social science faculties of the cooperating colleges. They are too numerous to mention individually, but without their interest and participation such a cooperative venture as ours would not have been possible.

From the summer of 1939 to the fall of 1941 Earl S. Johnson was research associate in the social sciences. When he returned to full-time teaching at the University of Chicago in the fall of 1942, I became his successor and remained in this capacity until the close of the Study in the fall of 1944. As is perhaps evident from its contents, this volume was written during the spring and summer of 1944. S. H. McGuire of Muskingum College was a General Education Board Fellow in the social sciences in the early part of 1939, and Francis O. Wilcox of the University of Louisville, in the year following. In the early days of the Study the research associate was aided by two research assistants, Christine McGuire and George Cronemeyer. In addition, the following persons were staff members during the workshops which were held each summer while the Study was being carried on: Lloyd A. Cook, 1940; Maynard C. Kreuger, 1940; Eugene H. Kleinpell, 1940; Charles E. Kohlman, 1940; Joseph H. Lohman, 1940-41; S. McKee Rosen, 1940; Leland DeVinney, 1941; Christine McGuire, 1941; and S. H. McGuire, 1941.

Many of the research projects carried on in the participating colleges throughout the course of the Study are not outlined in . . .
