More Books Back to UIUC

So many books, so much time they took...

-White, A Historical Introduction to Library Education (kept TofC and a xeroxed section of pages related to youth services work)
-Hopkins, History of the YMCA in North America
-Macleod, Building Character in the American Boy: The Boy Scouts, YMCA, and Their Forerunners, 1870-1920. Useful because it gave me background on Ernest Seton Thompson, who spoke to the first class of children's librarian trainees (along with John Dewey, Jane Addams, and others). (xeroxing TofC and a few select pages re discouragement of fiction reading in 1870s)

Histories of the Kindergarten Movement
-Ross, The Kindergarten Crusade
-Liebschner, A Child's Work: Freedom and Play in Froebel's Educational Theory and Practice
-Shapiro, Child's Garden. This was another book I encountered early in the process. Lots of stickies to remove, but ultimately all I really want to keep is the TofC.

Other Social Movements Related to Childhood:
-Cavallo, Muscles and Morals: Organized Playgrounds and Urban Reform, 1880-1920.
-Davis, Spearheads for Reform: The Social Settlements and the Progressive Movement, 1890-1914.
