    Biographical/Historical Sketch

    The Stanford Consultation Services, under the direction of Education Professor Robert N. Bush, conducted case studies of teachers and administrators in selected school systems in California, Colorado, Washington, and Australia. Evaluation and rating forms were filled out by students and colleagues of the individual being studied.

    Description of the Collection

    These records, dating from 1949 to 1956, were received as part of Robert N. Bush's papers but have been catalogued separately. Due to their large volume, the records were sampled in the following manner. Three separate cases representing different school ages were kept in their entirety: Alameda High School, Alameda, CA (case 60T); MR Trace Elementary School, San Jose, CA (case 79.2T); and Jordan Jr. High School, Palo Alto, CA (case 88T). Summary folders from all remaining cases were kept as well as all general administrative files.
