Platt, R. Eric; Chesnut, Steven R.; McGee, Melandie; Song, Xiaonan – American Educational History Journal, 2017

Francis, Anthony Tuf – American Educational History Journal, 2014

Morice, Linda C.; Reeves, Alison – American Educational History Journal, 2014

The subject is Alice Moyer (1898- 1980), a member of an under-researched group in the study of…
