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.

They feature such documents as Board minutes, reports on the Consultation Program, financial reports, publications such as  AMS News, questionnaires, information on conferences and seminars, and brochures and publicity. Many of these items may be duplicated in other series.

Series V: Federal and State Agencies ( 1962-1983) conatins correspondence primarily with the  Pennsylvania Department of Education, including the State Board of Private Academic Schools, and details the Commonwealth of  Pennsylvania's recognition and licensing of Montessori teacher-training methods and the recognition of the Montessori method as a valid form of instruction in private licensed schools. Included are various state criteria for licensing, such as the Rules and Regulations Governing Private Academic Schools and Agents (1980). The policy changes by the State Board of Private Academic Schools toward Montessori schools is also documented. Some correspondence with the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare is also included (see also Series III, Subseries D).

Series VI: Royall O'Brien Files ( 1962) includes materials, originally in a looseleaf binder, of  Royall O'Brien, an  AMS Board member from 1962-1968. They document the early history of  AMS in 1962, and include minutes, correspondence, administrative and financial reports, memoranda, and other records that O'Brien would have received as a Board member. Many are duplicated elsewhere, especially in Series VII. The original arrangement of the papers has been retained.

Series VII: Nancy McCormick Rambusch Files ( undated, circa 1956-1994) chronicles a portion of the professional life and activities of  Nancy McCormick Rambusch, the founder of  AMS and the person most responsible for reviving the Montessori movement in the  United States.  Subseries A, arranged chronologically from the late 1950s-1977 (with the bulk 1960-1963) contains general and business correspondence relating to Rambusch's activities at  Whitby School and the early years of  AMS. Included are minutes from the Boards of both Whitby and the  AMS, Rambusch's resignations as president of  AMS and as headmistress of Whitby, and letters from individuals interested in the Montessori method or wishing to open Montessori schools. Telegrams and letters to and from  Mario Montessori, Rambusch, and others in  AMI and  AMS chart the gradually deteriorating relationship between the two groups (see also Series VIII). Especially significant in this regard are two documents of  Mario Montessori: the 1959 paper in which he appoints Rambusch as an official representative of  AMI in the  United States and authorizes a mandate to begin an American Montessori group, and a typescript version of the "yellow paper" written several years later, in which he outlines his philosophical disagreements with  AMS that eventually led to a rift between the organizations (see Series XXI for the printed version). Some of the documents are fragile thermofaxes. There are numerous handwritten letters, usually by Rambusch's friends, that are personal but deal largely with Montessori matters. Most of the correspondence is to Rambusch, with relatively little from her; some letters are about her and are included here because they deal with topics relevant to the subseries. There are also letters and memos on administrative matters that would have concerned her as president of  AMS.  Subseries B consists largely of handwritten letters, postcards, and notes from friends on personal, social, and family matters, though some mention Montessori in passing. Many are by friends and teachers from Rambusch's student years, and depict the Catholic social and educational circles in which she moved and through which the Montessori movement gained a foothold in the  United States. Some of the correspondence is undated; most falls between 1961 and 1963.  Subseries C contains research and articles by Rambusch and writings about her. Included are typescripts of articles and papers, arranged alphabetically by title and dating from the 1960s through the 1980s, that she wrote on various aspects of children's education and the Montessori system (additional materials by Rambusch will be found in Series IX). In addition to manuscripts (both typed and handwritten) of lectures, speeches, and interviews that she gave, there is also an annotated bibliography and critique of selected works on Montessori compiled by Rambusch in 1962 (see Series XI, Subseries B for other bibliographies on Montessori research). This subseries also contains articles about Rambusch that appeared in various newspapers and magazines, many of them Catholic. Most date from the early 1960s and many profile  Whitby School in connection with the Montessori method and  AMS. Included are reviews of Rambusch's book,  Learning How To Learn, published in 1962. Some of the newspaper clippings are brittle.  Subseries D contains announcements of Rambusch's illness and death in 1994, and includes correspondence regarding her funeral, professional tributes, the program from her funeral Mass, and discussions about the establishment by  AMS of the Dr.  Nancy McCormick Rambusch Lecture Series and The Founder's Endowment Fund in her memory. There is also a folder of obituary clippings, some of them brittle.

Series VIII: AMI/AMS Correspondence ( 1963-1966) includes correspondence between  AMI and  AMS that had nothing to do with  Nancy McCormick Rambusch or was written after she resigned as president of  AMS in 1963. The series serves as a supplement to Series VII, Subseries A in chronicling the relationship between the two groups and showing the various difficulties that existed between the organizations. Some were financial; others involved  AMI's reluctance to recognize  AMS teacher training and issue diplomas and credentials to those trained under  AMS auspices.

Series IX: Teaching Materials and Pedagogical Resouces ( undated, 1962-1967) includes a glossary compiled in 1962 by  Nancy McCormick Rambusch,  Reginald C. Orem, and  George L. Stevens; lesson plans and outlines; explanations of Montessori activities and apparatus; and the Teacher's Manual for the 1966-1967 Montessori Teacher Training Program, some of which was prepared by Rambusch.

Series X: Historical Articles and Papers ( undated, 1915-1998) includes writings on  Maria Montessori and the Montessori method and movement from a historical perspective.  Subseries A features writings by  Maria Montessori, including Dr. Montessori's Own Handbook, and historical and biographical articles about her. There are clippings and letters, some on fading thermofaxes, and the words and music for "Hymn for Maria Montessori" by  Katy Paraskevopulu.  Subseries B contains articles on the Montessori movement that describe its evolution and what it actually is. They are concerned with the movement in general, not specific aspects of research. Most date from the early- and mid-1960s when the movement was gaining momentum; many, therefore, are from Catholic publications and mention  Nancy McCormick Rambusch (duplicates of some of these articles will be found in Series VII, Subseries C).  Subseries C contains typed copies of transcripts of lectures given in 1915 by  Maria Montessori in San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles. There is also a manuscript by Buckenmeyer on  Maria Montessori based on conversations in 1969 with  Edna Andriano, who cared for  Mario Montessori when he was a child.  Subseries D includes articles and correspondence on the history of Montessori by the educator  Sol Cohen.  Subseries E features materials on Montessori donated by  Ray Franchi after the death of his wife, Lucille, a Montessori educator. Typescripts and newspaper clippings from the  San Francisco Call & Post of the texts of  Maria Montessori's 1915 lectures are included, as is a copy of  Maria Montessori: A Centenary Anthology. In addition, there is a letter written by  Lucille Franchi to  Hillary Clinton about children's education; "Letters to Susan, A Discouraged Teacher," in which Franchi discusses aspects of the Montessori method; and an imaginary conversation between  Maria Montessori and Gandhi composed by  Ray Franchi.  Subseries F contains excerpts of notes taken by  E. M. Standing during lectures given by  Maria Montessori in 1921.  Subseries G contains notebooks, correspondence and professional records of  Lakshmi A. Kripalani who was trained by  Maria Montessori in 1946 in  Karachi, India (now  Pakistan) before working in Montessori schools in  New Jersey.  Subseries H contains the notebooks of Edith Cary who trainined under  Maria Montessori in  London, England, before opening the first Montessori school in  Mansfield, Connecticut (Oak Grove). Subseries I holds the training materials created by  Mildred W. Harford (undated). Subseries J contains the personal notes of  Hannah MacLaren taken during Teacher Training in 1963 in  California.

Series XI: Research ( undated, 1960s-circa 1970) contains writings concerning research on specific aspects of the Montessori system.  Subseries A consists of papers and articles, mainly in typescript, reflecting the research of numerous scholars and educators. These were collected by the AMS office to serve as a resource for Montessori scholarship; some later appeared in publications by  AMS or other organizations. They are arranged alphabetically by author's last name.  Subseries B contains bibliographies of Montessori research, including an index card file (see Series VII Subseries C for a bibliography by  Nancy McCormick Rambusch), and abstracts of articles and dissertations on Montessori.

Series XII: Consultation Program ( undated, 1965-1979) contains mainly administrative aspects and functions of  AMS's Consultation Program (also known as the Visitation Program).  Subseries A contains lists of  AMS School Visitors, mainly from the 1960s and 1970s, the Consultation Services Handbook, annual reports to the Board of Directors, and correspondence and reports dealing with expenses and financial matters such as travelling reimbursements for consultants.  Subseries B consists of correspondence about specific visits to participating schools. Procedural activities of the Consultation Program are discussed. There are reports to the Board of Directors (1965-1979) and public relations appeals describing the benefits of the Consultation Program in an effort to increase participation by  AMS-affiliated schools.  Subseries C, D, and E contain the files of three coordinators of the Consultation Program. There are many handwritten and typed notes and memos, usually but not always to or from the coordinators; sometimes the documents are copies of letters and other papers that a coordinator would naturally need to know about and maintain in her files. Routine administrative matters are discussed, as well as problems or issues with individuals within the program.  Subseries F includes correspondence of individual consultants, usually to or from the coordinator or Cleo Monson, arranged alphabetically by last name of the consultant. The letters and memos generally address routine housekeeping matters such as expense reports and reimbursements.

Series XIII: Seminars and Conferences ( undated, 1963-1990) chronicles the seminars and conferences, both national and regional, conducted every year by  AMS. Special meetings, such as the International Symposium in Athens (1979) and the 19th International Montessori Congress in Amsterdam (1979), are also covered. Not all the seminars held during 1963-1990 are included, but there is a list of all the seminars for these years at the beginning of the series, as well as registration lists for the conferences of 1963-1977 and brochures and other publicity for conferences between 1985 and 1990. For each seminar there are letters, memos, and other records dealing with exhibits and exhibitors, presenters, publicity, financial matters, and hotels and convention centers. For most seminars there are programs listing the presenters, speakers, and various activities. A large portion of the documents concern the types of routine financial transactions between convention centers and the organization, or participants and the organization, that typically occur during meetings of professional societies. There are also evaluation forms completed by the participants that provide impressions of the strengths and weaknesses of a particular conference and how successful or well-received it was.

Series XIV: AMS Publications ( undated, 1960-1999) includes issues of various journals and newsletters published by  AMS, and also correspondence related to them. Each subseries is devoted to a specific publication.  The publications themselves have been separated from the collection and are cataloged. There are gaps in every subseries, though the most complete is  Subseries A, the  American Montessori Society Bulletin, which also contains a list of published issues.  Subseries C, D, and F reflect title changes for the same publication: in 1970  AMS News Notes became  AMS Newsletter, which, later that same year, became  AMS News. In 1980, however, a new  American Montessori Society Newsletter began that had no relation to the old  AMS Newsletter (the only difference in the later title was that the name of the organization was spelled out instead of abbreviated). In this collection, to avoid possible confusion, the  AMS Newsletter has been designated o.s. (old series) while the  American Montessori Society Newsletter has been designated n.s. (new series), though these distinctions were never used by the publications themselves. In  Subseries I the  Constructive Triangle, the  AMS's official journal, is represented by only a few issues, but there is an index of articles and the text of several articles, mainly in typescript.

Series XV: Brochures, Pamphlets, Publicity and Press Releases ( undated) provides a sampling of the literature generated by  AMS over the years to advertise its mission and the Montessori method, and includes lists of  AMS publications and materials. Included are compilations of this literature created by the  AMS office in the form of seven scrapbooks: one consists of general materials; the other six are organized around specific topics.

Series XVI: Correspondence and Publicity for AMS Films ( undated, 1973) consists of correspondence, scripts, and publicity about several film projects that  AMS was involved in, including  Montessori: An Education for Life and the AMS Slide/Film Contest of 1973.

Series XVII: Montessori and AMS-affiliated Schools ( undated, 1962-1976) contains records relating to  AMS-affiliated schools in general and also specific schools. Some of the included items are lists of affiliates, various bylaws, overviews of and statistical data on affiliates, questionnaire, tuition, and application forms, information on how to start an affiliated school, brochures, publicity, mailings, and floor plans from specific schools, admissions policies, and affiliate membership appeals. Folders for specific schools are arranged alphabetically by title.

Series XVIII: Child Development Associate Consortium ( undated, circa 1972-1976) The  AMS eventually became a member of the  Child Development Associate Consortium (  CDAC), a private, nonprofit organization consisting of numerous societies directly involved in child development and early childhood education. The documents in this series consist of brochures and correspondence about  CDAC and  AMS's membership in it, as well as minutes from  CDAC's Board of Directors' meetings and information on credentials and certification, including a 1974 paper by  CDAC.

Series XIX: Comite Hispano Montessori ( undated, circa 1975-1991) The  Comite Hispano Montessori is a nonprofit Montessori organization providing a communication network and services for educators in Spanish-speaking communities in the  United States,  Mexico, the  Caribbean, and Central and  South America. The series contains correspondence, publicity, and directories of the  Comite Hispano Montessori, consultation reports on affiliate schools, and teachers' résumés. Clippings, correspondence, and a financial report for a seminar in June 1979 held in  Monterrey, Mexico, are also included.

Series XX: Educational Groups and Organizations ( undated) contains correspondence, brochures, and other literature on various groups relevant to  AMS's interests, such as educational toy companies, day-care and home-schooling organizations, and  Waldorf Institutes. Included is the manual  Home Study Course in Modern Montessori Teaching by the School of Modern Montessori. Of interest are the materials on the  Waldorf Institutes, especially the  Rudolf Steiner School in  New York, which consist of pamphlets explaining the history and content of anthroposophy, literature on schools, events, and curricula, and an article in  Holistic Education 3:4 (Winter 1990) that features a comparison of the Waldorf and Montessori methods in a discussion among educators from both traditions.

Series XXI: Non-AMS Publications ( undated) includes writings from organizations other than  AMS on Montessorian topics, including an article on teaching music by the Montessori method in  Piano Quarterly 58 (Winter 1996-97). Publications by  AMI are also located here, and include  Mario Montessori's "yellow paper" outlining his philosophical disagreements with the  AMS (see Series VII, Subseries A for the typescript version), a few issues of  AMI's journal  Communications, an index to articles in  Communications, and materials from the 13th International Montessori Congress, held in April 1964 in Amsterdam.

Series XXII: Sound Recordings ( undated, 1969-2005) includes audiocassettes, reel-to-reel audiotapes, and LP phonograph records. The cassettes and tapes consist of lectures, speeches, presentations, and workshops, mainly from various  AMS seminars.  Subseries A consists of approximately 2787 audiocassettes dating from the 1970s through 2003.  Nancy McCormick Rambusch and other prominent Montessorians are featured on many of the cassettes.  Subseries B includes 58 audiotapes (reel-to-reel) from the early 1960s and the AMS Chicago Seminar of June 1969. The most recent tape dates from 1970.  Subseries C contains master and duplicate recordings of  Folk Tunes and  Music of the Masters Adapted for the Classroom by  Elsie Braun Barnett.  Subseries D contains a CD version of the Barnett phonorecord.

Series XXIII: Videocassettes and Films ( undated, 1970-1987) includes  Subseries A which consists of videocassettes from the 1980s, including an interview by  Bob Motley of  Nancy McCormick Rambusch and  Cleo Monson at the  AMS Seminar in  Wilmington, Delaware, in November 1986, for which a transcript is included.  Subseries B contains numerous films, mostly by  AMS and about aspects of the Montessori method.

Series XXIV: Photographs and Slides ( undated, 1907-1980) contains  Subseries A consisting of photographs that depict the numerous activities and phases of  AMS throughout its history, and include photographs of  Nancy McCormick Rambusch and many other individuals whose names appear frequently throughout this collection. Seminars, social events such as Christmas parties and  Cleo Monson's retirement festivities in 1978, proofs for various publications, and Montessori schools, classrooms, and students are well represented.  Subseries B features slides illustrating Montessori teaching activities and events, such as the Montessori Centennial Celebration in 1970.

Series XXV: Unprocessed additions ( undated, 1955-2007) includes materials that have been recently added to the collection but remain unprocessed.
