A brief bit of history: Here’s a short article from the 1910 McClure’s* Magazine about Dr. Montessori, published just 3 years after she started her first Casa Dei Bambini. She was an instant international celebrity because of the work she was doing with children. People from all over the world came to see her school and learn from her. This was early 1900s, but news traveled fast!
*McClure’s Magazine (1893–1929) was an American illustrated monthly periodical popular at the turn of the 20th century. The magazine is credited with having started the tradition of muckraking journalism (investigative, watchdog or reform journalism), and helped shape the moral compass of the day. (source: Wikipedia)
