Henry Barnard: An Introduction

By Ralph C. Jenkins; Gertrude Chandler Warner | Go to book overview

CHAPTER TEN
HENRY BARNARD, HIS MARK

THE SINGLE achievement of Henry Barnard's career which is unique with him and cannot be attributed to anyone else, is his editing of that tremendous school magazine, The Journal of Education. There are now thirty-two bound books of fine print, each volume about three inches thick, and containing, it is said, a total of twelve million words.

This single monumental work sets him apart from all other educators of any age. It is the thing he did. A student of educational history will say, "Henry Barnard? Oh yes, the Journal."

But lest we trap ourselves into thinking that Dr. Barnard lived merely to bring this Journal into being, we must stop here and ask ourselves why he was so passionately interested in such a tremendous task which brought him no material gain.

This question will bring us straight to the answer. Through fire and flood, through criticism and coldness, the center of Henry Barnard's real interest was the teacher. For him, all roads led to Rome. Every educational bypath was just another avenue to the teacher. He will be found everywhere in his works, saying over and over, "The School is the Teacher," "Education is the Teacher," "The Curriculum is the Teacher."
