§ 31. Educational Periodicals

Periodical publications devoted to education made their appearance. In 1818–19 there was published in New York The Academician, the first American educational periodical. Its standard was high, its appeal was made in no pettifogging spirit:

  • O ye, whom science choose to guide
  • Her unpolluted stream along,
  • Adorn with flowers its cultured side
  • And to its taste allure the young.
