PREFACE

The papers which are brought together in this volume have been published in the School Review or the Educational Review within five years. The number of requests for reprints of the articles and symposia has far exceeded the supply; and the volume is put forth in response to a suggestion which was first made in the Classical Weekly, and afterward reinforced from many quarters.

With the exception of the first three chapters, which grew out of an address at the University of Kansas, the papers and discussions were prepared for the meetings of the Michigan Classical Conference and were presented on the program of the Conference or of the Michigan Schoolmasters' Club, of which the Classical Conference is a section; an account of the origin and earlier activities of the Conference is given in the School Review for May, 1905. The first two Symposia formed a part of the same program of the Conference, in 1906; they were translated into German by Professor von Arnim, of the University of Vienna, and published in 1907 in the Mitteilungen des Vereins der Freunde des humanistischen Gymnasiums, under the title "Der Wert des Humanismus, insbesondere der klassischen Studien als Vorbereitung für das Studium der Medizin und der Ingenieurkunde vom Standpunkt der Berufe." All the papers were revised for the volume by the writers except that on "The Peculiar Quality of Classical Training," by the Honorable Harlow P. Davock,

y who died in 1910.
