Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1976 
10 p. 

A national survey of 1,493 humanities faculty at 156 two-year colleges was conducted in spring 1975. The colleges included in the sample were carefully selected in terms of locale, control, emphasis, size, and age, and the faculty sample included proportionate numbers of full- and part-time faculty members. This paper compares history instructors in the sample to the total group of faculty. Sixteen percent (246) of the total sample were history instructors, the second largest of the 11 selected subgroups. As a group, the historians were fairly similar to the total sample. Most (82.9 percent) held their highest graduate degree in history. Most (78.5 percent) were male. Almost all (92.7 percent) were white/Caucasian. Many (31.3 percent) said they were working on doctorates. This represents the largest number in any one field indicating movement toward a higher degree, Forty-eight percent fell into the young or middle age groups, so it is not surprising that 38.6 percent claimed no previous experience as instructors of administrators in secondary schools, as compared with 41.4 percent of the total. Information on research, professional development, affiliations, and teaching duties is also summarized, and compared to the characteristics of the total sample. (Author/NHM)
