Title from caption.
Though not the first of the educational periodicals in America, "Russell's Journal of Education," as it was called, was the first really important American magazine in the field of education. Edited by William Russell, it emphasized physical and moral training, and advocated education for women and physical education for both boys and girls. It was chiefly devoted to early or elementary education. After two years, it was turned over to S.G. Goodrich, who kept it for about a year; it was then purchased by James Gordon Carter, a pioneer advocate of normal schools. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.

Search Tips

Phrase Searching

Use quotes to search an exact phrase: e.g. "occult fiction"


Use * or ? to search for alternate forms of a word. Use * to stand for several characters, and ? for a single character: e.g. optim* will find optimal, optimize or optimum; wom?n will find woman and women.

Boolean Searching

Use AND and OR between words to combine them with Boolean logic: e.g. (heart OR cardiac) AND surgery will find items about heart surgery or cardiac surgery. Boolean terms must be in uppercase.
