Abstract/Notes: "San Francisco, Nov 6 - Helen Keller shared honors with the San Francisco Teachers' association at the Panama-Pacific exposition today and received from the hands of officials a bronze medal commemorative of the event. Miss Keller sat between Madame Maria Montessori and her teacher, Mrs. John A. Macy of Boston, and 'heard' the various addresses by placing her finger tips upon the throat and lips of Mrs. Macy. Miss Keller responded to the presentation of the medal in an addressing which she acknowledged the many compliments paid her by the other speakers."

Abstract/Notes: "San Francisco, Cal., June 26 - Under the patronage of Miss Margaret Wilson, daughter of President Woodrow Wilson, Dr. Maria Montessori, the noted Italian educator, will conduct an international Montessori training course at the Panama-Pacific International exposition during August, September, October and November. With Miss Wilson on the committee in charge of the course are David Starr Jordan, president of the National Education association, which meets in Oakland in August, and P. P. Claxton, United States commissioner of education. The special course will be for the benefit of teachers, parents and others interested in child welfare, and in connection with it will be held a number of demonstration schools in which teachers will do practice work. Noted educators from all parts of the United States and from abroad have been asked to conduct a thorough study and test of Dr. Montessori's method of child training during this course. The exposition authorities asked Dr. Montessori to conduct her international training course on the exposition grounds because of the opportunity it will afford to give an international test of this newest and unique method of developing individual initiative in very young children. An essential part of the plan consists in the appointment of an international committee which will give careful and extended stay to the demonstration classes and report at the close of the exposition concerning the actual progress made and the real contribution that the Montessori principles have made to educational advancement. The arrangements for the course are in the hands of Wallace Hatch of Berkeley, Cal., who was formerly acting chief of the department of education of the exposition."

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori’s visit to California in 1915—her second visit to the United States—coincided with multiple events in the region: San Francisco’s Panama–Pacific International Exposition (PPIE), San Diego’s Panama–California Exposition (PCE), and the National Education Association of the United States (NEA) annual meeting in Oakland. Her visit also came at a time when the American Montessori movement was splintering, and the academic elite increasingly criticized her educational model. These circumstances made Montessori’s visit to California a potentially valuable opportunity to rekindle interest in Montessori education across the United States. Discussions of Montessori’s visit in 1915 have been framed around her training course and demonstration school at the PPIE. Based on information from primary sources (e.g., newspapers and archival materials), some of which have been overlooked, this article asserts that her visit to California had broader implications. While her eight months in California did have a positive impact on the growth of the Montessori movement, Montessori’s engagement with mainstream education had limited impact and it gave way to waning interest in Montessori education in the United States.
