Article  10:  “Abraham and Simon Flexner: Medical Education Reformers in the U.S.A.”
Education Resources Information Center  (ERIC) NO: ED443 765:  ABSTRACT: This paper (in the form of a dialogue) tells the stories of two members of a remarkable family of nine children, the Flexners of Louisville, Kentucky. The paper focuses on Abraham and Simon, who were reformers in the field of medical education in the United States. The dialogue takes Abraham Flexner through his undergraduate education at Johns Hopkins University, his founding of a school that specialized in educating wealthy (but underachieving) boys, and his marriage to Anne Laziere Crawford. Abraham and his colleague, Henry S. Pritchett, traveled around the country assessing 155 medical schools in hopes of professionalizing medical education. The travels culminated in a report on “Medical Education in the United States and Canada” (1910). Abraham capped his career by creating the first significant “think tank,” the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. The paper also profiles Simon Flexner, a pharmacist whose dream was to become a pathologist. Simon, too, gravitated to Johns Hopkins University where he became chief pathologist and wrote over 200 pathology and bacteriology reports between 1890-1909.  He also helped organize the Peking Union Medical College in Peking, China, and was appointed Eastman Professor at Oxford University.

Article 19.  “General Robert E. Lee (1807-70) and Philanthropist George Peabody (1795-1869) at White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, July 23-August 30, 1869.”

ERIC NO: ED444 917.  ABSTRACT: This paper discusses the chance meeting at White Sulphur Springs (West Virginia) of two important public figures, Robert E. Lee and George Peabody, whose rare encounter marked a symbolic turn from Civil War bitterness toward reconciliation and the lifting power of education. The paper presents an overview of Lee’s life and professional and military career followed by an overview of Peabody’s life and career as a banker, an educational philanthropist, and one who endowed seven Peabody Institute libraries.  Both men were in ill health when they visited the Greenbrier Hotel in the summer of 1869, but Peabody had not long to live and spent his time confined to a cottage where he received many visitors. Peabody received a resolution of praise from southern dignitaries which read, in part: “On behalf of the southern people we tender thanks to Mr. Peabody for his aid to the cause of education…and hail him benefactor.”  A photograph survives that shows Lee, Peabody, and William Wilson Corcoran sitting together at the Greenbrier. Reporting that Lee’s own illness kept him from attending Peabody’s funeral, the paper describes the impressive and prolonged international services in 1870. It also discusses historic events around the time of Peabody’s death, especially the “Trent Affair,”  and Prime Minister Gladstone and Queen Victoria’s gratefulness to Peabody for his housing gift in relieving the conditions of the poor of London.  Author research information and a list of publications on Peabody are included.  (End).

ERIC ED 474 132 Abstract:  This paper presents an imaginary conversation between an interviewer and the novelist, James Michener (1907-1997). Starting with Michener’s early life experiences in Doylestown (Pennsylvania), the conversation includes his family’s poverty, his wanderings across the United States, and his reading at the local public library. The dialogue includes his education at Swarthmore College (Pennsylvania), St. Andrews University (Scotland), Colorado State University (Fort Collins, Colorado) where he became a social studies teacher, and Harvard (Cambridge, Massachusetts) where he pursued, but did not complete, a Ph.D. in education. Michener’s experiences as a textbook editor at Macmillan Publishers and in the U.S. Navy during World War II are part of the discourse. The exchange elaborates on how Michener began to write fiction, focuses on his great success as a writer, and notes that he and his wife donated over $100 million to educational institutions over the years. Lists five selected works about James Michener and provides a year-by-year Internet search on the author. (End)

ERIC ED 474 157 Abstract: The paper presents a historical overview which begins in the year 1785, takes George Peabody through his life activities, and ends with Peabody College’s becoming part of Vanderbilt University. The paper looks at a multifaceted history covering 217 years of 6 consecutive charter-connected educational institutions in Nashville, Tennessee, that culminate in the present institution, Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College. It examines schooling in frontier Nashville before Tennessee became a state (1796) and before and after it became the Athens of the South; the relationship between Peabody College’s predecessors and neighboring Vanderbilt University and the merger that occurred in 1979; and the philanthropic intent of George Peabody and Peabody College’s continuing pursuit of his dream to uplift the U.S. South and advance the nation through professionally prepared teachers serving public schools.

Peabody and his nephew Othniel Charles Marsh.
