Historical Sketch of Normal Instruction in Wisconsin (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Historical Sketch of Normal Instruction in WisconsinIt is with great reluctance that I give this sketch to the printer. The Normal schools of Wisconsin deserve, in this Columbian year, a more careful and thoughtful treatment than it has been possible for me to give them with justice to other demands and duties. The fact that I had prepared a similar sketch for the Centennial celebration seemed to fix the duty upon me again. Chapters I., II. and III. of the present sketch are taken, with but slight modification, from that of 1876. Much other material from the earlier outline, broken up and recast, has been made to do duty a second time. The kind assistance given me by the presidents of the several schools deserves a better result than is here presented. I must, therefore, be allowed to plead that what follows is not offered as history but only as material for history. With this thought in mind, all possible care has been given to secure accuracy in fact. No time or strength was left for attempting finish or elegance in the form of presentation. Neither has it been possible, under the circumstances, to adequately analyze the facts presented and draw from them their full meaning; though some unsatisfactory effort has been made in that direction. Much regretting that proper time and labor could not be given to so congenial an undertaking, the result is submitted to those who can make use of it.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
