Abstract/Notes: Dr. Maria Montessori's 1913 visit and lecture tour to the United States is described in detail with numerous citations from newspaper coverage of the event. The enthusiastic reception extended to the European physician and educator is reviewed, and her meetings, notably with Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Graham Bell, President and Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, Miss Helen Keller, leading educators, and members of Boston society, are described. Varied responses of Americans to basic Montessori ideas and practices are disclosed, and the role of S. S. McClure of "McClure's Magazine" in originating and promoting the lecture tour is revealed. In conclusion, some reasons for the decline of the Montessori movement are suggested.
