Originally published in 1991 this book analyses the input of those who made important contributions to the education of adults in the USA between 1607 and 1920. Examining the historical roots of adult education the book explores commonalities among innovators such as Cotton Mather, Benjamin Franklin, Margaret Fuller Ossoli and Ida Tarbell. It charts the development of important educational programmes including the American Lyceum, Chautauqua and local organizations such as mechanics' institutes and the Junto in Philadelphia.
