Biographical History

Rae Rohfeld was a professor of adult education at Syracuse University and later taught at Empire State College. As a member of the Syracuse University Kellogg Project, she coordinated several conferences on the history of adult education. The first was a traditional conference but subsequent ones were structured as "working conferences, " meaning that time was built into the conferences for scholars to actually carry out research among collection materials, present preliminary findings, and receive interactive feedback from fellow conference participants.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Rae Rohfeld Papers is divided into two series. Conferences and meetings contains material from several annual conferences on the history of adult education held at Syracuse University under the auspices of the Kellogg Project; the 1988 International Conference on Adult Education held in Aachen, Germany, at which Rohfeld represented the Kellogg Project; and the History of Education Society's 1991 meeting. This includes conference proceedings, agenda, correspondence, notes, and other material. Writings contains several papers written by Rohfeld.

Arrangement of the Collection

Conference and meeting material is in alphabetical order by conference title and within that in chronological order. Writing is in alphabetical order by title.
