This collection of over 3500 one-sentence summaries of editorials gives the research historian access to a rich deposit of social and educational data from the files of the most widely circulated, most influential, and most long-lived newspaper of the Midwest. It supplies the teaching historian with a montage of school-related issues, problems, and proposed solutions with which Americans have struggled for 170 years. The collection can be read like a text, enlightening the perceptive reader with its kaleidoscope of events, enlarging and sharpening impressions of contiguity and correlation.
