Abstract/Notes: At times, when I sit among thousands of Montessorians at a Nancy McCormick Rambusch Lecture during The Montessori Event, I visualize Douglas Gravel, at the time a student in the first American Montessori Society training course, bounding up the stairs inhaling a combination of chocolate chip cookies and the alcohol smell of the mimeograph machine, all while singing the Mighty Mouse theme song: "Here I come to save the day! In the early years of World War II, Cleo served as an assistant to the Minnesota War Finance Committee's publicity director and later came east when the U.S. Department of State sought skilled workers for overseas. After the war, Cleo obtained a position with the Committee for Economic Development, working her way up to office manager, with a staff of 50, where she remained for 13 years. Again, Doug and Maria's contacts proved useful; this time, Senator Christopher Dodd and his sister Carolyn Dodd (children of the late Senator Thomas Dodd) eased the path to the transfer, in 2006, of the AMS Archives to their current home at the Archives and Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center ofthe University of Connecticut Libraries.

Abstract/Notes: Montessori educators follow Montessori's lead and use the word "work" to describe the child's concentrated attention with a hands-on material. But this word may lead to communication problems with parents and those in the non-Montessori world: educators, administrators, accreditors, and so on. These communication problems are just the tip of the iceberg in understanding Montessori's ideas on work and how these ideas and practices fit with the concept of work in society. In this article, the author investigates what researchers and writers have said about the attitudes of children and youth toward work. He also describes how this relates to what Montessori says about work and what happens in Montessori classrooms.

Abstract/Notes: This article offers a brief history of the establishment of the American Montessori Society (AMS) and takes a closer look at its structure. The history of AMS has essentially been a search for standards and a search for community in its efforts to further the welfare of children in America. It has been an indigenous effort by American parents, and others who shared their concerns, to obtain the kind of educational and cultural development their children need for life today and for the life they will experience in their maturity during the twenty-first century. The AMS from the very beginning has been more a symbol than the reality of an adequately financed and staffed national organization. It is composed of professional and lay members and seeks to extend the use of Montessori principles and practices within the educational and cultural environment of America. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
