Who Were We, Then?

The author reflects on several old publications of the American Montessori Society (AMS). Some of these publications include the December 1964 and May 1965 issues of the "BULLETIN of the American Montessori Teachers" as well as the Fall 1967 the Spring 1968 issues of the AMS quarterly "The Constructive Triangle." She argues that these old publications showed the efforts of AMS members to formalize their structures and become members of a professional organization which aims to help schools and teachers across United States.
