Description
The William Van Til papers document the career of an important figure in the history of American education in the twentieth century. Identified with the progressive movement of John Dewey and William Heard Kilpatrick, Van Til was an early supporter of racial integration in American schools and a proponent of the use of a multicultural curriculum in the classroom. The bulk of the Van Til papers consist of his speeches and writings, along with correspondence between Van Til and his publishers.
