The First 14 Years

This is the final issue of The Kansas School Naturalist to appear under the present editorship, since I am retiring from active service at KSTC as of May 31, 1968. The October 1968 issue will appear under the editorship of my successor, Dr. Robert J. Boles. I hope you readers will forgive this review of the first fourteen years of the Naturalist, that you will find the reminiscences and the statistics interesting, and that you will give Dr. Boles the same support and cooperation you have given me.

editor the file copies of the first 14 volumes, 1954-1968.

The Kansas School Naturalist was conceived in the dining room of the then Broadview Hotel, now the Tartan Room of the College of Emporia Downtown Center. President John E. King and I had a breakfast date with Dr. E. Laurence Palmer, of Cornell University, who was in Emporia as a consultant for the 1954 Workshop in Conservation. He was the long-time editor of the Cornell Rural School Leaflet, now the Cornell Science Leaflet. The purpose of the breakfast meeting was to explore the possibilities of a quarterly leaflet to be published by the Department of Biology, to cover the general field of natural history and conservation, somewhat along the lines of the quarterly which Dr. Palmer had been editing for so many years at Cornell. We met for breakfast about 8 A.M. Two hours later we were still at the table. We had laid the general plans for a 16-page quarterly, tentatively selected a name, The Kansas School Naturalist. We had even drawn out in rough form, on table napkins, the"dummy" for the first issue.

The embryological development of the Naturalist started later the same day in Room 5 of the old Norton Science Hall. Present at this meeting were, in addition to the Broadview "breakfast committee," Ted F. Andrews, then Head of the Department of Biology, now Director of Science, Educational Research Foundation of Greater Cleveland; Ina M. Borman, Associate Professor of Education and teacher of science in Thomas W. Butcher Childrens School, KSTC; Dixon Smith, then instructor of geography in the Division of Social Science, KSTC, now on the faculty of the University
of Wyoming; and the late Helen M. Douglass of the Division of Education, KSTC.

The first issue of the new magazine, "Window Nature Study," appeared in October, 1954. It was prepared by the Editorial Committee, assisted by certain members of the 1954 Workshop in Conservation, with the special assistance of Dr. Palmer. The hopes and objectives of the Department of Biology and the editorial committee were set forth in Volume 1, Number 1, as follows:

This first issue of The Kansas School Naturalist is produced at the college by the Department of Biology, with the cooperation of the Departments of Education and Social Science. According to present
plans, it will be issued· four times during the school year-about the first of October, December, February, and April. The editorial committee hopes that the magazine will prove valuable to teachers and pupils, members of outdoor groups, scoutmasters, camp leaders, conservation leaders, and various others who take either a serious or a casual interest in observation of nature.

It is the hope of the editorial committee that The Kansas School Naturalist may be of special help to teachers, in at least three ways. First, we hope that the information provided in the articles, tables and illustrations may be useful in teaching about Kansas and its natural interests. Second, we hope teachers will find methods, devices, activities, and tricks-of-the-trade to help them find something for students to do, as well as something to study about. And third, we hope that the magazine may serve
as a clearing ho use for both information and activities, so that teachers may use its columns to help each other.

The subject for the first issue, "Window Nature Study," was introduced in these words:

Schools differ in almost every way you can think of - cost, construction, size, age, location, landscaping-but one feature they all have are windows.

(This is of course no longer true, Many modern schools are being built without windows, now that we have air-conditioning and fluorescent lights.)

These are of many types and sizes, but they all have glass, most of them can be opened, and many of them are screened. Their function is to admit light and air, but this is not all.

Windows, provide excellent nature study laboratories. When the word " laboratory" is mentioned most people think of a special room filled with a lot of complicated-looking instruments;---queer shaped glassware, and odd specimens. But a laboratory may be quite simple, and every school room or rural school has several of them. A laboratory is a place where scientific work is done, where careful observations are made, where natural things and processes are studied first hand.

Windows can be used for examining many interesting things that Nature has to offer. You may see through a window, a arm's length, a bird which would fly away if you came within 50 feet of it outdoors.
You don't have to go out to collect box-elder bugs; they will come through the window to where you are.

Look at the picture on the front cover. Examine it carefully for a half minute or so. What did you see? Of course you noticed the two pupils looking at the battery jar which is serving as an aquarium, and you must have seen the windows in the next building. Did you notice the playground equipment in the yard? The cattails in the window? The snails in the battery jar? Did you notice that the window through which you were looking wa s not screened but that the adjoining one was?

Now look a t the picture on the back cover for a half minute. Did you notice the little pile of dirt on the window sill and ledge? How did it get there? Is there any dirt on the window sill? How did it get there? Did you notice the wasp on the window sill? Did you notice that when you look into the room from outdoors the window is darker than its surroundings? If you were an insect flying toward the light, in which direction would fly through the window? Which way do you think the wasp was going?

Back (left) and front (right) covers of the
first issue. October 1954.

Helen Douglass chose Janet Anderson and Nancy Kreymer, pupils at Butcher School for "cover girls" for the front and back covers, as shown above. Robert Stapleford, then a high school science teacher at Hoxie, Kansas, who was doing graduate work in summer school, took the photographs. The drawings were made by Robert F. Clarke, senior biology major, now Associate Professor of Biology, KSTC.

The first issue was distributed in various ways. Copies were sent to superintendents and principals throughout Kansas, with the suggestions that they acquaint their teachers with the publication. Copies were given to science and biology teachers enrolled in summer school. A package was sent to each county superintendent, with the request that the copies be given to interested teachers. Copies were distributed at various sections of the November 1954 meetings of the Kansas State Teachers Association. The fourth number, April 1955, "Let's Go Outdoors," was widely distributed in summer school classes and workshops of 1955.

After the first year, The Kansas School Naturalist has been sent only upon request. By January 1956, the mailing list included about 1800 individuals and 80 libraries. The fourth number of the first year, April 1955, carried an insert to be returned by readers, giving some information about themselves.

Almost a thousand inserts were returned, about 90 per cent from teachers, supervisors, and school administrators. Ten per cent were received from librarians, scout leaders, conservationists, camp directors, 4-H Club leaders, and various miscellaneous categories. Of the teachers a bout 65 per cent were kindergarten and elementary teachers, 30 per cent junior and senior high school teachers, and five per cent college teachers.

For the year 1967 the mailing list stood at about 6500. The last number of Volume 13, April 1967, carried an insert similar to that of April 1956. This time about 75 per cent were returned by teachers, supervisors, and administrators; 25 per cent from the other categories. The change from ten to 25 per cent in the latter
was accounted for mainly by the greatly increased number of librarians on the 1967-68 mailing list. Of the teachers, 70 per cent were kindergarten and elementary teachers, 23 per cent junior and senior high school teachers, and seven per cent college teachers. Thus, although the mailing list has increased by almost 20
per cent, the percentage of elementary, high school, and college teachers remained nearly the same.

The Kansas School Naturalist has been favorably received from the beginning. Kansas newspapers as well as radio and television stations, took note of its establishment.

Nature Magazine, in February 1955, commented on the new quarterly as follows:

It happens that this particular topic was selected beca use of the arrival of Number 1, Volume 1 of the Kansas School Naturalist, published by the Emporia, Kansas, State Teachers College ... This new school quarterly is available to Kansas school folk, and should perform a most useful service to the schools of the state. Kansas has ranked hi gh for its publications useful to naturalists, particularly because of those coming from the University of Kansas. It is appropriate that the State offer to the
pre-college teachers material suitable to their needs . .. these school leaflets should serve to put into use the findings of the more technical publications of the university.

The initial Kansas School Naturalist helps teachers use as laboratories their school windows, and the cover cleverly shows what may be seen looking out of and into an ordinary schoolroom window. Drs. King and Breukelman, and the State of Kansas, are to be congratulated on this new venture, which was, in part, the outcome of a teachers ' workshop sponsored last summer at Emporia by the National Wildlife Federation.

The Kansas School Naturalist had it origin in the KSTC Workshop in Conservation, and has been closely associated with it through the years. Many issues have been planned and prepared by workshop groups that organized themselves into formal committees. Other issues were started by workshop groups; in some
instances, workshop participants did much of the preliminary library work or other "spade work" that made certain issues possible.

The authorship of the 56 issues of The Kansas School Naturalist has been quite varied, although nearly two-thirds (35 issues) were written by KSTC faculty members, as either individual or as joint publications. Of the 35, nine were written by the editor, and eight were joint publications by Ina M. Borman and the late
Helen M. Douglass. Eleven issues were produced by organized committees of the annual summer Workshop in Conservation. Three others, although not the work of organized committees, had their origin in the Workshop. The remaining seven issues were contributed by graduate, under-graduate, and precollege students, and persons independent of KSTC, including one Emporia physician, Dr. Edward J. Ryan.

Carl Hoffmans, manager of the Teachers
College Press, examines the cover layout for the 56th issue of the Naturalist.

As varied as the authorship has been the subject matter of the 56 issues, even though most of the issues have dealt with topics more or less closely related to the fields of conservation and nature study. Fourteen of the issues have treated specific nature topics or areas as such, for example "Life In A Pond" and "Your Nature IQ." Eleven have dealt with types or groups of animals and six with types or groups of plants. Ten have been based on teaching materials and methods, with special emphasis on equipment, experiments, and projects suitable for the study of science, conservation, and nature study in the elementary grades. Five have treated various aspects of climate, water, and soil. Four have been devoted to brief reviews of children's books in nature study and science. Two issues, including the present one, have been historical, one has described materials and methods for camping, and one has dealt with time and velocity. One was a description of the F. B. and Rena G. Ross Natural History Reservation near Americus, which is a part of the Teachers College set aside for use by the Department of Biology in its general program of teaching, research, and service.

Table I shows the titles and authors of the 56 issues from October 1954 to April 1968.

The Kansas School Naturalist has served as one medium for announcing the annual Audubon Screen Tour Series presented by the Department of Biology since 1957-58. Except for 1967-68, when the series was reduced to three, each series has consisted of five all-color motion pictures of wildlife, plant life, and conservation personally narrated by leading naturalists. The compilation of screen tours of the past
eleven years not only looks like a directory of naturalists, but might also be thought of as the chapters of a fascinating book on wildlife, science, nature study, and conservation. In the eleven years, 33 naturalists have presented 53 Audubon Society films; 10 have appeared twice each, and five three times each, as shown in Table II.

Many people and agencies have contributed time and effort to whatever success the Naturalist has enjoyed. It is impossible to name all of them, but the list on pages 12-15 includes the majority. Special recognition is due Presidents John E. King and John E. Visser, Acting President Laurence Boylan, and Departments Heads Ted F. Andrews and Ralph P. Frazier, whose continued cooperation and encouragement has made the publication possible; Conservation Workshop Directors C. F. Gladfelter, Robert F. Clarke, Thomas A. Eddy, Scott D. Hagen, and Charles Schlanker, who supervised the production of various materials used in numerous issues; the Teachers College Press under the direction of Carl Hoffmans for excellent make-up and printing; and the Teachers College General Office for its efficient handling of the mailing list and addressograph service.

I wish to thank all of you here listed, as well as many others who have made contributions. Among the important unlisted persons are the readers who have supplied information of value and suggestions for further issues.
