Abstract/Notes: "A cablegram from Dr. Maria Montessori in , received yesterday by Miss Katherine Moore, a teacher in the East Seventh-street school, announces that the noted educator will hold her third international training class in Loa Angeles, beginning May 1. The first two classes were held in Rome in 1912 and 1914. They were attended by people from eight different countries. "Los Angeles receives this honor in preference to New York City, Washington, and other large cities of the country for two reasons," Miss Moore said yesterday. "In the first place, it was in Los Angeles that the Montessori system was first introduced into the public school system. Secondly, the invitations fro this city were especially cordial and appealing." The invitation to Dr. Montessori was signed by [Superintendent J. H. Francis, Los Angeles City Schools], [President J. F. Millspaugh, California State Normal School (Los Angeles)], [President George F. Bovard, University of Southern California], and by the heads of several civic and social organizations. The Montessori class in the East Seventh-street school, the first of its kind established in America, will be used for demonstration work at the institute. This class is taught by Miss Moore, who was a graduate of Dr. Montessori's first international training class. Principal Larkey wrote to Dr. Montessori, placing the class at her disposal."
