Abstract:

The Board of National Popular Education was formed to "supply well qualified teachers to places destitute of them." The Board consisted of 30 members, five of which constituted the Executive Board. The Executive Board reviewed applications and chose the teachers, prepared them for their work and selected the schools to which they were assigned. All of the teachers were expected to be of "unexceptionable moral and religious character." The bulk of the collection is correspondence and is arranged in three Series. Series I contains letters from candidates explicating their beliefs about regeneration and are arranged alphabetically by the name of the candidate. Series II consists of letters from individual candidates or their family members, again arranged alphabetically by the name of the candidate. Many of these letters are accompanied by recommendations and certification of moral character written by ministers and teachers. Those women who were assigned to schools in "The West" wrote to the Board of their experiences, and these have been arranged in Series III alphabetically.
