Historical Documents: McClure’s Magazine

American journalist S. S. McClure’s McClure’s Magazine, credited with starting the tradition of American investigative journalism, ran a series of articles on Maria Montessori and Montessori education between 1911 and 1914.  McClure was instrumental in bringing Montessori to the United States and an early advocate of her methods.

Digital images of the articles have been provided by the  Hathi Trust Digital Library (with support from the Google Digitization Project and the University of Michigan).  The links below are hosted by the Montessori Society of Canada.
