Experimental Studies in Kindergarten Theory and Practice: Introduction


by Patty Smith Hill - 1914

Teachers College, Columbia University, was, so far as I know, the first institution of higher learning to incorporate the kindergarten as the foundation of its educational system. This early recognition of the kindergarten as an organic part of education may be attributed to several causes. In the first place it may be traced to the sympathetic insight of President Butler, who was one of the first professors of education to realize the educational possibilities in the philosophy and practice of the kindergarten. In addition to this, no small credit should be given to the two remarkable women who were, in turn, directors of the Department of Kindergarten Education in its early history; first to Miss Angeline Brooks its founder, who celebrated with us her silver anniversary at our reunion in February, 1913; and to Miss Mary D. Runyan, who succeeded Miss Brooks, setting a stamp of culture which has been our birthright, and a standard which it has been our privilege to strive to maintain since her untimely death in 1905.
