A CLASSIFIED LIST OF THE PRINCIPAL SUBJECTS CONSIDERED IN
THE VOLUMES OF PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION, FROM 1870 TO 1893, INCLUSIVE.'
This classified list gives the topics upon which papers have been read before the association, the name of the author, and the volume, or year, in which the paper may be found.
Prior to 1870 there were three national associations in the United States considering educational work, each independent of the others—The National Teachers’ Association, organized in 1857; The American Normal Association, and The National Superintendents' Association. At the joint annual meetings in August, 1870, these associations united, forming The National Educational Association of the United States, with departments for the consideration of distinct phases of educational work.
The joint publication of the proceedings of these associations began with the volume for 1870. It is now hardly possible to find copies of the proceedings of either of these associations prior to that date. They were generally issued in pamphlet form, and seldom contained all the papers read at the meetings. Beginning with 1870, each volume is bound in cloth.
The volumes for 1870 and 1872 are now out of print. A limited number of copies remain for the years 1871, 1882, 1883. The volume for 1893 contains the proceedings of the International Congress of Education.
