This book attempts to fill an existing need for an account of the part played in the historical development of American education by certain outstanding women. The biographies of these pioneers are recounted rather fully and the more significant of their writings, already becoming rare, have been brought together in convenient form. It is to be hoped that instructors of the history of education will continue and extend a practice, here and there begun, of devoting some consideration to the material question of the education of women in bygone times and to the signal services rendered by women to the improvement of that education. - Preface.
