Education for Womanhood

by Anne D. Blitz — 1923

Many years ago in another land a prophet said, “Their old men shall dream dreams and their young men shall see visions.” It is those visions of the young men of years gone by that we come back to celebrate to-day, particularly the vision of that man who has proved himself through these twenty-five years to be our leader and our seer. Teachers College embodies a real vision in America. At the heart of it, I love to think, is the home and the child in that home. That, to some of us, is Dr. Russell's greatest gift to education. Not alone the administrative vision, not only the advance of science as applied to education, but with both, the clear perception of the home, and the individual in the home, as the basic units of society. It has been the aim of Teachers College and of those who have directed it to relate all its work directly to the home, and to the betterment of the individual through the home. Teachers College has been able to render its great service to society because it has kept clear the vision of that obligation, and has never lost sight of it in the desire to accumulate knowledge for its own sake.
