Abstract/Notes: This chapter analyzes the personal interactions of the principal characters—George, Naumburg, Parkhurst and Pyle—and an over-powering fifth woman, Maria Montessori. The analysis of the interplay, the personal relationships, and the tensions between these principals, is integrated with the institutional history of educational organizations, schools, and events. George, Naumburg, Parkhurst, and Pyle arrived at the Montessori training courses believing their instructor, the greatest educator in the world, was truly “an educational wonder worker.” A complex multidimensional person, Montessori, determined to control what she had created, expected total loyalty, almost fealty and submission, from her trainees. Montessori’s demanding personality caused tension with her four students that affected the establishment of her method in the United States.

Abstract/Notes: Methods Must Be Adapted to Individual Needs Is Discovery That Has Made Italian Dotoressa World Famous -- the Beginning and Development of Her Work Described by Miss Ellen Yale Stevens. "What is the the Montessori method? It is the playhouse school, the school where the rudiments of work-a-day knowledge seep into the juvenile brain; the school in which educators from one end of the world to the other have been interested and which, wherever its principles have been carried, has remained as the initial step in an epoch of child development."
