Moral Pedagogy. Reprinted from "Education," November, 1913

N.p. [Washington, D.C.: by the Author], 1913. Offprint. Scarce offprint, detailing the imnportance of a moral curriculum in higher education, and outlining some possible approaches to its achievement. "Moral pedagogy...can not be stated, at present, in terms of as definite program as can the development of the other parallel faculties. The methods of atack are mainly oblique." Kelly Miller (1863-1939) was the first African American to receive graduate education in Mathematics (Johns Hopkins, 1887-89); he later founded the Department of Sociology at Howard University, where he taught until 1934. Though less widely-known today than his more famous contemporaries Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois, Miller was arguably the most influential Black intellectual of his era, a prolific, articulate, and widely-published advocate for Negro education and civil rights, once called by Carter Woodson "undoubtedly the greatest pamphleteer of the Negro race." This a particularly rare Miller item; OCLC notes only one location (Emory); none others found in commerce (2013). Octavo. Staple-bound self-wrappers; [12]pp. Staples slightly rusty; light marginal soil; Very Good.
