Summary

Written as a personal memoir of educator William Carr and as an historical perspective on the National Education Association (NEA) from the late 1920s to the 1970s, this biography focuses on Dr. Carr's devotion to education and to the rational solution of international differences. As an active member of the NEA for nearly 40 years, as Executive Secretary of NEA from 1952-1967, and as a member of the Educational Policies Commission from 1937-1967, Carr's involvement in education spanned national and international events such as the Great Depression, World War II, and the Cold War. Major achievements of the NEA under Carr's leadership include creation of NEA regional offices, employment of consultants on teacher salaries, strengthening of NEA's research division, creation of numerous fellowships for teachers and students, support for teachers' rights, and extension of the program of NEA's Commission on Professional Rights and Responsibilities. The biography concludes with enumeration of Dr. Carr's activities since his retirement in 1972, including graduate teaching, conference speaking, and active involvement with various professional education associations.
