Historical Note

The Committee on the Preparation of Teachers was established in 1933 under William S. Gray; it was to serve as a campus-wide advisory and coordinating committee on teacher education. It filled the place formerly occupied by the College of Education, and after becoming increasingly inactive and ineffective it was disbanded. In 1956 the Graduate School of Education came into being.
