Converting the West : a biography of Narcissa Whitman by Julie Roy Jeffrey( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narcissa Whitman and her husband, Marcus, were pioneer missionaries to the Cayuse Indians in Oregon Territory. Very much a child of the Second Great Awakening, Narcissa eagerly the burgeoning evangelical missionary movement. Following her marriage to Marcus Whitman, she spent most of 1836 traveling overland with him to Oregon. Narcissa enthusiastically began service as a missionary there, hoping to see many "benighted" Indians adopt her message of salvation through Christ. But not one Indian ever did. Cultural barriers that Narcissa never grasped effectively kept her at arm's length from the Cayuse. Gradually abandoning her efforts with the Indians, Narcissa developed a different ministry. She taught and counseled whites on the mission compound, much as she had done in her own church circles in New York. Meanwhile, the growing number of eastern emigrants streaming into the territory posed an increasing threat to the Indians. The Cayuse ultimately took murderous action against the Whitmans, the most visible whites, thus ending dramatically Narcissa's eleven-year effort to be a faithful Christian missionary as well as a devoted wife and loving mother. --From publisher's description
Education for children of the poor : a study of the origins and implementation of the Elementary and secondary education act of 1965 by Julie Roy Jeffrey( Book )

6 editions published between 1972 and 1978 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

President Lyndon Johnson's support of Federal aid to education rested on the belief that schools were effective agents of upward mobility in American Life. Achievement in school, poverty planners thought, was directly related to later economic status. The question of whether poverty planners were justified in making these assumptions in developing the educational components of the War on Poverty is explored in this study. The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (esea) is used to explore questions underlying the making of educational policy, and the implementation of educational and social reforms. The reasons for initially emphasizing an educational solution for poverty in the mid 1960's are examined. The impact on poverty of the esea is assessed. It is noted that the esea never lived up to liberal hopes because policy makers neither examined their fundamental beliefs nor confronted the nature of the American school system that they hoped to reform. Intellectual and political conflicts surrounding the history, implementation and failure of the esea are analyzed. An extensive bibliography is also included in this work. (Author/GC)

Jeffrey examines the autobiographical writings of former abolitionists such as Laura Haviland, Frederick Douglass, Parker Pillsbury, and Samuel J.
