Abstract:

Publisher's description: The founder of gifted education has been forgotten, even though her words of 100 years ago are still as relevant today as they were back then. Born in rural Nebraska in 1886, Dr. Leta Hollingworth (1886-1939) rose above an abusive childhood and gender prejudice to become an influential psychologist, educator, author, feminist, and advocate for gifted children. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate from the University of Nebraska, she helped form the Heterodoxy Club in New York City, joined the faculty at Columbia University, founded the first school for the gifted, and published numerous articles and books that continue to provide provocative insights into the education and special needs of gifted children and adults to this day.
