History

Maria Montessori (1870-1952), the first woman in  Italy to receive a medical degree from the  University of Rome, developed her theories of education at the turn of the century while working as a young doctor in an asylum for mentally disabled children. In the Montessori method, children use special learning materials in a prepared environment to sequentially develop and master concepts and motor skills. Teachers guide but do not control, each child progresses at his or her own pace, and the noncompetitive atmosphere of the classroom allows working for the pleasure of learning rather than from fear of punishment or anticipation of rewards.

Dr. Montessori developed an international following, and in 1913 and 1915 she toured the United States, lecturing on her educational theories to enthusiastic acclaim. Yet by the 1920s her ideas had been rejected by mainstream American educators. This effectively killed the Montessori movement in the  United States for the next several decades, although it continued to flourish in  Europe, especially among Catholic educational institutions.

In the late 1950s Nancy McCormick Rambusch, a young teacher who had undergone Montessori training in London, became inspired with the idea of reviving Montessori education in America. Initially conducting classes from her New York apartment, she soon founded and became headmistress of Whitby, a lay-Catholic school in  Greenwich, Connecticut, which became the flagship school of the American Montessori revival. Rambusch and Whitby gained a reputation and supporters; they and the Montessori method soon became the subjects of articles and interviews in both Catholic and secular journals and magazines. They also attracted the attention of the  Association Montessori Internationale ( AMI), the guardian and promulgator of  Maria Montessori's ideals under the directorship of her son, Mario, who authorized Rambusch to act as  AMI's representative in America. This led, in 1960, to the founding of the  American Montessori Society ( AMS), with Rambusch as its first president.

During the early years the fortunes of AMS and  Whitby School were intertwined; the two institutions even shared Board members. Although Rambusch was active in Catholic circles, she recognized that Montessori had to transcend religious boundaries and would have to acquire nonsectarian appeal if it was to succeed in the  United States. She also firmly believed that aspects of the Montessori method had to be modified to accommodate the culture of mid-twentieth- century America and its children, and that the movement should not be confined to private institutions.

These ideas strained relations with AMI, which felt that Dr. Montessori's principles were universal and could not be modified without destroying their integrity. Despite good-faith attempts on both sides, the philosophical differences could not be reconciled, while additional controversies over finances and control deepened the rift. Ultimately, in 1963,  AMI withdrew its recognition of  AMS as a Montessori society, and from that point until the present  AMS has existed independently of  AMI.

Nineteen-sixty-three was a critical year for AMS.  Nancy McCormick Rambusch had been travelling around the country tirelessly promoting Montessori and drumming up support among educators and parents. The results were overwhelmingly positive: the number of Montessori schools in America increased and the  AMS office in Greenwich was flooded with requests for information about the method and about how to open Montessori schools. The society was weakened, however, by conflicts not only with  AMI but within  AMS itself. Moreover, the administrative affairs of the office were in chaos, and the organization was in danger of disintegrating.

This situation was remedied when Cleo Monson was hired in January 1963 as Executive Secretary to reorganize  AMS's office, but her administrative abilities soon rendered her indispensable as the coordinator of virtually all the society's activities. In 1973 she became the first National Director, a position of pivotal importance that she essentially created and that she held until her retirement in 1978. In her own way she was as responsible as  Nancy McCormick Rambusch for the existence of  AMS.

In 1963, six months after Monson arrived, Rambusch resigned as president and embarked upon a distinguished career in children's education that continued until her death in 1994. Also in 1963, the national office of AMS moved from Greenwich to New York, where it has since remained.

Following the turbulence of these early years, AMS found firmer footing and began to flourish. As the society grew, it had to cope with the practical issues that face all organizations, including fundraising, formation of policies, codification of professional standards and ethics, and public relations, both within and without the Montessori community. Various committees and programs sprang into existence to meet these needs, and this required the talents and resources of members willing to organize and direct these important activities. Within a decade of its existence, therefore,  AMS's internal structure necessarily increased in complexity. Yet the society continued to avoid bureaucracy as much as possible by using the main office in New York as a coordinating hub.

Because Montessori schools were not required to affiliate with the national organization, AMS sought to establish relationships with local schools through various forms of outreach. It published literature about the Montessori method and  AMS, collected research, some of which appeared in the society's various journals and newsletters, and established the Consultation Program, in which trained consultants would visit affiliated schools, observe classes and the physical environment, and offer suggestions and feedback.  AMS developed standards for teacher training and certification as well as pedagogical resources to meet Montessori educational needs.

AMS's seminars and conferences also served to foster communication, professional growth, and a shared sense of identity among Montessori teachers. A national seminar was held annually, and several regional conferences took place each year. These meetings featured lectures, workshops, presentations, and exhibits, and allowed members to network, exchange ideas, and develop or hone their teaching skills. Portions of these seminars were recorded or filmed to serve as future resources. The society was very proud of the success of its first International Symposium, held in Athens in 1979, which featured as speakers several internationally renowned educators and scholars.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, AMS constantly sought to widen its appeal. Its ties with the  Comite Hispano Montessori, for instance, enabled the Montessori method and resources to thrive in Spanish-speaking communities in the Americas and the  Caribbean.  AMS collected literature from and established relationships with other educational groups and organizations, including the  National Association for the Education of Young Children and the  Child Development Associate Consortium, and concerned itself with home schooling, day care, and alternative educational methods such as the  Waldorf Institutes. In this way it attempted to keep abreast of contemporary developments in children's education and resist parochialism by entering into dialogue with those who shared  AMS's concerns for the educational welfare of children.

AMS succeeded in reviving the Montessori method in the  United States and gaining recognition for it as a valid educational system. The society has become the foremost resource in America for Montessori education and teacher training. Through its varied activities it continues to provide information, support, and advice to schools, teachers, and parents, and to integrate the ideas of  Maria Montessori and her many followers into the structure of American education.

Scope and Content

The documents in the American Montessori Society ( AMS) Records extend from the mid-1950s through the mid-1990s, though the bulk falls between 1960 and 1985. They encompass a variety of subjects and activities, including routine administrative and financial records, research, historical correspondence and writings, official publications, and publicity.

The early history of AMS appears in Series VI, VII, and VIII, which include Board of Directors' minutes, financial reports, articles on the Montessori movement and  AMS, and correspondence among key figures in the movement and organization. These papers chronicle the founding of  AMS in connection with  Whitby School in  Greenwich, Connecticut; the difficult relationship between  AMS and the  Association Montessori Internationale ( AMI); and the problems  AMS had to confront as it established its reputation and authority as a promoter of Montessori education. Especially important in this regard are the files of  Nancy McCormick Rambusch (Series VII), the founder of  AMS; this series provides historical information not only about  AMS but also about the personal and professional life of Rambusch as revealed in correspondence, research, articles, and interviews.

AMS's minutes and bylaws may be found in Series I and II, respectively. Series II though is incomplete. Minutes are also included in the records found in Series IV and VI. The Administrative Files (Series III) deal with professional and operational administrative aspects of  AMS and some of its committees and progr AMS. They include, among other documents, a policy statement (1963), correspondence of the Educational Advisory Committee, fundraising appeals and brochures, drafts of the  AMS Management Guide, and correspondence and legal information about evaluating the credentials of foreign Montessori teacher trainees. There are also leases and maintenance correspondence for the  AMS offices in New York, and personnel correspondence about insurance progr AMS for Montessori teachers.

The Mailings Scrapbooks in Series IV contain the letters, publicity, publications, and other literature generated by AMS and sent to its members and Board members during 1974-1983, affording a general overview of the society's functions and activities for that period. Series XV also contains scrapbooks of  AMS's public-relations efforts as it sought to advertise its mission, and includes lists of  AMS publications and materials.  AMS also sought outreach through films, and the correspondence, scripts, and publicity for several film projects will be found in Series XVI.

Historical background and information on the Montessori movement and its founder will be found in Series X. Writings by and about Maria Montessori, transcripts of her historic lectures given in  California in 1915, and articles about the history and evolution of the method both in general and in the  United States are included; many of these papers were donated to the society by Montessori educators and supporters.

As the movement gained momentum, Montessori educators and scholars conducted and published research on a variety of relevant educational topics. The AMS office collected various papers, articles, bibliographies, and abstracts to serve as an in-house resource for Montessori scholarship, and these will be found in Series XI. Although they date largely from the 1960s and thus do not reflect the most current research, they provide a glimpse of the state of American Montessori studies at the time. Series IX contains pedagogical resources that show how Montessori education was actually conducted in the classroom, including lesson plans, outlines, and the Teacher's Manual for the 1966-1976 Teacher Training Program.

AMS published numerous journals, newsletters, and other publications, and many of these appear in Series XIV. All the titles represented contain significant gaps but still permit the reader to grasp the scope of the organization's activities and interests through the years. Non- AMS publications will be found in Series XXI, and include writings on Montessorian topics by organizations other than  AMS, including  AMI. Of particular interest is  Mario Montessori's "yellow paper," which set forth  AMI's philosophical disagreements with  AMS in the early 1960s.

AMS encouraged affiliation by Montessori schools, and this topic is covered in Series XVII, which contains lists of affiliates, bylaws and administrative forms of individual schools, statistical data, and various brochures and other information regarding affiliated schools in general and also specific schools. One of the ways  AMS sought to cement ties between affiliates and the national society was through the Consultation Program, the records of which are located in Series XII. They include general correspondence as well as files of individual consultants and several coordinators of the Program, and offer insights into the operations of this important group. The activities of the  Comite Hispano Montessori, an association for Spanish-speaking Montessorians in North, Central, and  South America as well as the  Caribbean, are reflected in the correspondence, publicity, directories, and consultation reports that comprise Series XIX.

In Series XIII are located files for various national and regional seminars from 1963-1990. Registration lists, correspondence dealing with exhibitors and presenters, brochures and programs, financial reports and records, and evaluation questionnaires allow an understanding of the importance of these meetings as vehicles for fostering, maintaining, and developing aspects of the Montessori method.

AMS also interacted with organizations and concerns not directly within the Montessori orbit. Series V chronicles the relationship between  AMS and government agencies, especially the  Pennsylvania Department of Education, as the society sought to achieve official recognition of Montessori teacher-training methods and educational instruction.  AMS's connections with other groups relevant to its interests are depicted in Series XX, which includes articles, brochures, and correspondence. Represented are day-care and home-schooling organizations, educational toy companies, and  Waldorf Institutes. Series 18 is devoted to the  Child Development Associate Consortium ( CDAC), of which  AMS eventually became a member.

Audiocassettes, audiotapes, CDs and phonograph records are located in Series XXII. The tapes and cassettes contain lectures, speeches, and workshops conducted mainly at various AMS seminars from the 1960s through the 1980s. Films and videocassettes about various aspects of the Montessori method are located in Series XXIII. Of interest is an interview with  Nancy McCormick Rambusch and  Cleo Monson about the beginnings of  AMS, taped in 1986.

Photographs and slides are included in Series XXIV. The slides illustrate Montessori teaching activities and events, such as the Montessori Centennial Celebration in 1970. The photographs cover a wide range of professional and social activities, including seminars. Depicted are many of the individuals, including Nancy McCormick Rambusch, who are represented in the papers of the collection.

Later additions to the collection are included in subsequent series.

Martha McDermott Interview 2017 April 4 

Scope and Contents

Martha McDermott lives in Cincinnati, Ohio. After taking Montessori training in London, and studying with Muriel Dwyer and Claude Claremont, she was recruited to come to Cleveland, Ohio in the 1960s. She also studied with Nancy McCormick Rambusch and Betty Stephenson.

Martha taught at Xavier University's Montessori Teacher Education program and was the program's lab school head teacher for the early childhood program. She and Margy Knollman started the lower elementary class in the 1970s after she returned from training in Bergamo, Italy. Martha retired from Xavier (full time) but continues, to this day, to work with teachers and their students. Her delight in this work, which she says is "never boring," is palpable in this interview.

Her influence on Montessori teachers, especially her poetic articulation of the creative and joyful opportunities for teaching and learning -- her pleasure at the experience of learning through one's own effort (both for the teacher and the child) and her devotion to the "work of the hand" -- are some of the many ways she inspired so many.

Martha McDermott's Montessori story is also the story of the Montessori movement -- she was taught by many of the pioneers of the work, both in Europe and in the United States, including Nancy McCormick Rambusch. As Martha tells her story, she describes connections with: Mother Isabel, Muriel Dwyer, Claude Claremont, the Ruffing family (Cleveland), Nancy McCormick Rambusch, Betty Stephenson, and Hilda Rothschild.

Martha was interviewed in Cincinnati, Ohio on April 14, 2017 by Robyn Breiman, an AMS board member. Buzz Scannella produced the recording.

Biographical / Historical

Mary Storrs Packard was born on April 5, 1872, in Aiken, South Carolina, and grew up in Maine. She received a diploma from the Department of Kindergartens of the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Packard was a student at the Internationale Montessori Courso and graduated from teh course in June 1914. Her friend and fellow student in the course was Charlotte Wiggen who lived in Litchfield, Connecticut. The donor tells us that "Mary S. Packard and her friend Charlotte Wiggin...had to return to the U.S. [from Rome, after the course concluded] via the Suez and the Pacific and landed in San Francisco rather than take the more direct route through the Gilbralta Straits due to the impending war (actually already happening) and the German mines placed along that shipping route. It took them two months to return home from the Montessori Institute."

She taught at the Brearley School in New York beginning in 1918.

Mary Packard adopted two children, in 1923 and 1929. The donor of these items is the daughter of one of these children and Mary Packard's grand-daughter.

Mary Storrs Packard died on January 30, 1964
