Education

Introduction to the Collection

Materials documenting the role of education in society are voluminous, thanks to Paul and Jean Hanna. The papers of government officials involved with educational policy in the United States and abroad, and the records of educational organizations, concern peace efforts through education, wartime propaganda, and education in developing countries. Library holdings include an extensive collection of international textbooks, especially from the Soviet period.
