Conferences and Personnel

The Commission wishes to acknowledge here the assistance of a large number of people, outside of its own staff and membership, who have contributed to the development of this report. In May 1936 the Commission called into conference, at Chicago, a group representing seven national deliberative committees concerned with problems related to the purposes of education. Those in attendance included Wilford M. Aikin, Thomas H. Briggs, George E. Carrothers, Harl R. Douglass, Fred J. Kelly, Paul T. Rankin, and V. T. Thayer.

Subcommittees of the Commission held conferences on educational objectives in October 1936, at Cambridge, Massachusetts, and in November 1936, at San Francisco. The first conference was attended by: Hollis P. Allen, Francis L. Bailey, John M. Brewer, P. W. L. Cox, Ernest A. Harding, Henry W. Holmes, C. W. Knudsen, Edwin A. Lee, Henry Neumann, Bertram E. Packard, James N. Pringle, Harold Rugg, Warren C. Seyfert, Curtis H. Threlkeld, and Claire Zyve. The second conference was attended by: Marvin L. Darsie, Percy E. Davidson, Willard S. Ford, Guy Fox, Will French, Paul Hanna, Walter R. Hepner, C. A. Howard, J. R. Jewell, Grayson N. Kefauver, Vierling Kersey, R. D. Lindquist, George H. Meredith, A. S. Raubenheimer, Charles A. Rice, and C. E. Rugh.

In February 1938, the Commission called together, at Atlantic City, a group of curriculum specialists in order to determine the viewpoint of this group on a preliminary draft of the report and in order to anticipate the possible utility of the report in curriculum building. Members of this group included: Fred C. Ayer, Doak S. Campbell, Hollis Caswell, C. L. Cushman, Edgar Draper, J. Cecil Parker, D. R. Patterson, L. S. Tireman, and L. W. Webb. Helpful suggestions have
