1910 Article from McClure’s Magazine About Maria Montessori

Thursday, September 26th, 2013 6:56 pm | By Stephanie Woo

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.

  2. To Joanne above: I am working at putting many of the articles in McClure’s Magazine online so they are easier to read and access. I don’t have this particular one up, and am just starting on this project, but you can view one from McClure’s Magazine on my page:


    I should have the links to the ones I can find in maybe a week or so.
