Dorothy Canfield
American educational reformer, social activist, and best-selling author in the early decades of the twentieth century. She strongly supported women's rights, racial equality, and lifelong education. In addition to bringing the Montessori method of child-rearing to the U.S., she presided over the country's first adult education program and shaped literary tastes by serving as a member of the Book of the Month Club selection committee from 1925 to 1951. — Excerpted from Dorothy Canfield Fisher on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
