Abstract/Notes: Louise Dixon Boyle (1875–1953), a member of the Bahá’í community of Washington, D.C., for fifty-six years, was an intelligent and active woman whose record of service to the promotion of the Bahá’í teachings and the betterment of society is rich and varied.1 Conscious of the forces of social change, the impact of progressive scientific ideas, and the issues confronting the Western world in the early years of the twentieth century, Louise Boyle sought to find ways to bring to the attention of leaders of thought the teachings of the Bahá’í religion that related to their fields of interest, and to encourage her co-religionists to familiarize themselves with current thought and to consider the means by which it might be used to introduce Bahá’í perspectives on the issues of the day.

Abstract/Notes: At the turn of the twentieth century, many Italian intellectuals opposed women’s participation in the public sphere, maintaining that women could not engage in politics due to their exclusive love for their biological children. Contemporary feminists countered this notion by promoting the idea of social motherhood. Sibilla Aleramo and Maria Montessori, better known for their work in feminist literature and early childhood education, respectively, made important contributions to this debate by implementing, theorizing, and popularizing the notion of social motherhood. This essay traces the strategies the two intellectuals used to demonstrate how women could act as political subjects via a socialization of the maternal functions. In her novel Una donna, Aleramo offered a fictional portrait of the social mother. Influenced by it and by the feminist debate on motherhood, Montessori conceptualized the notion of social motherhood as both a socialization of maternal duties and the expansion of women’s maternal virtues into the social world. Montessori also applied this notion to her first pedagogical experiments in San Lorenzo (Rome) and with the orphans of the 1908 Messina-Reggio earthquake. An analysis of these intellectuals’ formerly overlooked contributions provides a new understanding of the role of social motherhood in the contemporary feminist debate in Italy.

Abstract/Notes: "MONTESSORI ENDS HER WORK IN L. A. Madame Maria Montessori, the famous Italian educator and founder of the Montessori method, who has been conducting Montessori training classes in this city for the past six weeks, today concluded the training course at the Boyle Heights intermediate school. Tomorrow Montessori will go to San Diego to establish another training school there. "I leave Los Angeles with a sense of leaving real friends,” Montessori declared today. "I wish to extend, through The Evening Herald, my thanks and appreciation to the public of Los Angeles which has given me such splendid response and cooperation. I wish especially to thank Miss Katherine Moore for the hospitality she has shown me and the assistance she has rendered me in my work.” Miss Moore, formerly a city school teacher, studied under Montessori in Italy and has established Montessori classes in this city since her return to America."

Abstract/Notes: "MONTESSORI HOLDS FIRST CLASS HERE. Famous Teacher Sways 100 Tots with Personality and Without Words. Using the world famous Montessorl technique, swaying more than 100 little tots by her wonderful personality, and winning their understanding and co-operation without the medium of the spoken word, Madame Marie Montessori today, for the first time since her arrival in Southern California, taught a class of children in the Boyle Heights intermediate school. Three classes, chief among them the Montessori class from the East Seventh street school, assembled at the Boyle Heights Intermediate building shortly before 1 o’clock. All were tiny Montessori students, but most of them spoke only English. Promptly at 1 o’clock, the famous Italian educator, founder of the system which bears her name, appeared. She spoke only Italian. But with every gesture, every smile, a specific communication seemed to pass from her to the little folk gathered round her, and within a few moments after her coming, the room was alive with voluntary activities of the little boys and girls, busy over a self-chosen occupation or game. Miss Katherine Moore, who introduced the Montessori technique in Los Angeles after studying it with its founder in Italy, acted as interpreter for Madame Montessori. Today's class was the first in a two months’ demonstration course to be given in this city by Montessori. It is the first time she has ever established a training course outside of Rome, and eminent educators from all parts of the country are coming to the city to study under her during the term of thls course."
