Draft chapters of an official history of education written by Dr. Sophia Weitzman and a collection of her source material, some of it of an earlier date than 1939.
At the time of Dr Weitzman's death, the draft history had been conceived as two volumes, the first volume to contain the chapters dealing chronologically with the impact of defence preparations on education up to 1939, and the general review of the war years, followed by "special studies" chapters dealing with such topics as the nutrition of the schoolchild, medical services, the 'under-fives' and the employment of children in agriculture.
The second volume was intended as an historical survey of the growth of the national system of state education from the first half of the 19th century culminating in a detailed discussion of the 1944 Education Act. The draft survey ends with a summary of the Green Book (Education after the War) which was circulated in June 1941. An abridged version of the whole history was drafted but not completed.
The series also contains files containing the material of Mr D. du B. Davidson.
