The conference was held in cooperation with the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
The conference was a joint effort. The New England School Development Council
obtained the speakers, and invited interested school
administrators, school board inembers, local and state
government officials, and leaders in public service.
The Council provided those attending the conference
with materials to supplement the talks. The Harvard
Graduate School of Education provided all facilities
for the conference, and made it possible for the twelfth
Alfred Dexter Simpson Lecture to be part of the program.
