Addresses and Journal of Proceedings

OF THE

NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION.

SESSION OF THE YEAR 1875,

AT

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA.

PUBLISHED BY THE ASSOCIATION.

SALEM, OHIO:

PRINTED BY ALLAN K. TATEM,
OFFICE OF THE NATIONAL TEACHER.

1875.

[blocks in formation]

The material for this volume was not all received until the 18th of February. The last paper read in the General Association was not received until the middle of November, hence the printing could not be commenced until that time, the proceedings of the General Association occupying the first of the volume. Attention is called to the appendixes for materials which were received too late for insertion in their proper places.

The printing has also been delayed by the sending of proofs to distant parts of the country. Papers should be presented in such a form that no such delay would be necessary.

The records of the Departments do not show who were appointed members of the Publication Committee. This was owing to the fact that so many temporary officers were appointed who were not familiar with the workings of the Association. The undersigned, Secretary pro tem. of the Department of Higher Education, was appointed to represent that Department in the Publication Committee, and also by the Board of Directors as Chairman of that Committee, in view of the fact that he was Secretary elect of the General Association, and that the Secretary elected the preceding year was not present at Minneapolis.

The volume of proceedings might be distributed each year as early as December if the papers were handed to the secretaries at the Association. February 18, 1876.
