Topical [series]:

The Topical files series consists mainly of the writings of Edmonson on various issues in education, both secondary and college, and also includes correspondence, papers and essays, reports, minutes, and some published material by Edmonson. Some especially significant files include "Intercollegiate Athletics," under which can be found information on the increasing role of sports in colleges and the subsequent educational debate. "Intercollegiate Athletics" also contains a file on the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools pertaining to sports in colleges during the 1950s. A significant amount of information can be found on the "Canada-United States Committee on Education" which was formed to study the quality and quantity of information taught by each country about their neighbor. The "Fraudulent Schools" files contain correspondence and articles on the "diploma mills" of the 1950s, and the efforts to expose them. There are also folders on various aspects of secondary and college teaching and issues relating to public schools.
