Excerpt from Children's Interests in Reading: Submitted in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy, in the Faculty of Philosophy, Columbia UniversityTo-Day the cooperation of others is essential in every undertaking. This is no less true of studies in Education and in Psychology than of studies in other fields. It is a real pleasure to render my thanks to those who have made this study possible. Superintendent F. S. Root, of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and Superintendent Raymond A. Kent, of Lawrence, Kansas, gave permission to gather data from these two cities. Superintendent John G. Rossman, of Stuttgart, Arkansas, gave the test for me and repeated it six months later. Superintendent B. L. Thurston, of Washington, D.C., and Principal E. M. Wilson, of the same city, had the tests given for me there in the New Central High School.Miss Annie Carroll Moore, supervisor of the work with children in the New York Public Library, not only gave me permission to observe in the children's rooms of the Public Library but evinced a keen interest in the outcome of the work. The Librarians without exception were roost kind and helpful in suggesting interests of children in reading.Professor E. L. Thorndike directed the study from its beginning. Only those who have studied under him know how penetrating yet how fair his criticisms may be. Dr. T. L. Kelley directed the writing of the last chapter. And finally, it would be less than just not to render thanks to my wife, Carrie Nicholson Jordan, whose steady, consistent work and helpful suggestions made the completion of the dissertation possible at this time.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
