History of Higher Education in Massachusetts (Classic Reprint) Details

Excerpt from History of Higher Education in Massachusetts
Sir: The present series of "Contributions to American Educational History" is the outgrowth of an organized inquiry concerning the study of history in American colleges anil universities, instituted as early as 1885 by my predecessor, Geu. John Eaton. Prof. Herbert B. Adams, of the Johns Hopkins University, was by him engaged for the conduct of this investigation, the results of which were published in 1887 as a circular of information of this Bureau, under the direction of my immediate predecessor, Col. N. H. R. Dawson. In connection with this organized inquiry Dr. Adams discovered fields of Special educational interest in the history of William and Mary College and of the University of Virginia, upon which institutions monographs were published by the Bureau of Education in 1887 and 1888. together with authorized sketches of Hampden-Sidney, Randolph-Macon.Emory-Henry, Roanoke, and Richmond Colleges, Washington and Lee University, and the Virginia Military Institute. These Studies of higher education in Virginia, encouraged by my predecessor, led to a series of contributions on the History ol American Colleges and Universities, grouped by States and written, so far as practicable, by representatives of the institutions considered, or by educational specialists. Histories of Education in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and of Federal and State Aid to Higher Education in the United states, have already been published by the Bureau of Education, and have proved very helpful and suggestive not only to teachers in the States concerned, but to educators throughout this country and in foreign lands. Correspondents in various European countries, and even in Asia, have recognized the value of this series. I desire to complete it in time for exhibition at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1803. A cooperative history of American higher education, with duo regard to common and secondary schools, would be a noble and worthy contribution from this Bureau to the United States Government exhibit.
I have elsewhere commented upon the significance and value of this series of publications, as follows: National education does not begin, as is sometimes supposed, with primary education, but with higher education. The first education was that of the princes and the clergy. Finally, the diffusion of the democratic ideas contained in Christianity makes education a gill to all men. The history of higher education in the several Slates affords the weeded clew to the beginning of our present widely extended system of common schools.
