Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Joseph W. Jacques Interviews consists of interviews with 11 established leaders in the field of adult education in the United States: Mary Armstrong, R. J. Blakely, Leland P. Bradford, Mary Louise Collings, Paul L. Essert, Wilbur C. Hallenbeck, Sam Hand, Andrew Hendrickson, Eugene I. Johnson, Howard Y. McClusky, and Ralph B. Spence.

The interviews were conducted by Joseph Jacques, PhD in Adult Education at Syracuse University, as part of the basis for his doctoral dissertation. Following a format of structured questions, but allowing for free-wheeling discussion, Jacques' tapes probe the leaders' formative lives and educational experiences; their philosophies of living and of education; and their beliefs and opinions concerning current trends and the status of adult education in the United States. These 21 reels of recordings were made between March and May of 1972, and include much material not contained within Jacques' formal dissertation.

Please note that the collection does NOT include transcripts of the interviews.
