Excerpt from A Dictionary of Educational Biography: Giving More Than Four Hundred Portraits and Sketches of Persons Prominent in Educational Work
In the case of living persons it has of course been difficult to make selection. No one will look over the list without de teeting what seem to him omissions. But it was necessary to fix some limit, and I have given those whose work seemed especially important and typical, and whose names are frequent in the news of the day.
The form of sketches was adopted for use in the Teachers Calendar, published for several years past as a supplement to the School Bulletin, and giving each month portraits and sketches of six educators whose birthdays come during the month. The sketches are brief, but will be found to contain a good many facts, and an abundance of dates, which form the anatomy of biography.
